Channing Tatum is such a charming guy with a flirty personality, but it put a strain on his marriage to Jenna Dewan, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Channing Tatum, 37, and Jenna Dewan, 37, collectively broke fans’ hearts everywhere when the Step Up sweeties announced on April 2 that they were ending their nearly nine-year marriage. While they always seemed so happy together on their social media accounts and on red carpets, it was ultimately Channing’s incredibly charming personality that led to a strain on their marriage, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Channing is a total flirt and that was hard for Jenna to deal with. He is funny, smart and really charming on set whether he is talking to his cute costars or the production assistants, he is nice to everyone,” a source close to Channing tells us.
The pair fell in love while shooting the 2006 dance flick Step Up. They were both looking to break big in Hollywood and the actor went on to become a superstar and sex symbol thanks to films like Magic Mike and the 21 Jump Street franchise. His constant in-demand status allegedly left Jenna at home and lonely. “The charming guy on set is who Jenna first fell in love with and later it became hard on her every time he left to do a movie, which was all the time. Everyone on set loves Channing and he is often surrounded by beautiful women at work. His successful career made things really difficult for them to have a healthy relationship. He was gone all the time and Jenna was often left worrying about what could have been going on at the set while she stayed home raising their daughter,” the insider continues, referring to their four-year-old daughter Everly.
