When Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum separated after nearly ten years of marriage in 2018, they insisted they remained “best friends” — but now, in her new book, the actress admitted it was a far darker time than fans knew.
In Gracefully You: Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday — a copy of which was first obtained by RadarOnline.com — the 38-year-old mom said she “drank a whole lot of wine” and suffered “deep, painful, big cries” in the aftermath of her separation.
“The process wasn’t cute, light or fluffy,” she confessed. “It was a dark and difficult time, for sure.”
Later in the book, she wrote the split “tested” her in ways she “hadn’t thought possible.”
“I started to wonder if everything I believed in and always talked about was even real,” she said. “Could anyone or anything ever be trusted?”
After coping with her feelings head-on, Dewan was able to come out the other side — and find a “deep love” with someone new.
“There I was, on a plane, alone, finding out about his new relationship,” she wrote.
Though both have moved on, Dewan and Tatum’s divorce is still ongoing. Most recently, the ex-couple filed to be declared legally single.
