The writing has been on the wall seemingly forever for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, but the latest celebrity split is a doozy: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum announced that they "have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple," reports People. "We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now." The couple says there aren't any "salacious events" in the split, "just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible."

The pair have been married nearly nine years and share daughter Everly, 4. They met in 2006 on the set of Step Up. But there may have been hints of cracks. Dewan Tatum told Health in February that "when people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect,” she said. “I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we’ve really grown together." (More Channing Tatum stories.)
