Jenna Dewan has broken her silence on her split from Channing Tatum, responding to a report that her husband’s heavy drinking ultimately led to the break-up.
“Happy to clarify that absolutely none of these rumors are true,” a rep for Jenna told Us Weekly.
“The situation is as positive as it can be. Nothing negative is going on here. They are both incredibly mature about this. There’s nothing more really to say.”
The article the rep responded to was by the Daily Mirror, which quoted an insider who said the Magic Mike star’s “drinking and partying ways drove a wedge into their nine-year marriage.”
The story referred to a quote Channing gave to GQ in 2014 where he told magazine:
“I probably drink too much, you know. My wife, that’s what she bought into … I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess.”
The soon-to-be ex-couple are putting up a united front despite their plans to divorce.
In the joint statement announcing their separation, they insisted they will “always be loving dedicated parents to [four-year-old daughter] Everly”, and word is they plan to continue to work together on the Step Up spin-off they’re producing for YouTube.
