Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan shocked fans last night when they announced that they were separating after nearly nine years of marriage. However, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned from a source close to the hunky 37-year-old Magic Mike actor that close friends were "not surprised at all" by the split!
"Honestly, Channing was bored with his marriage. He constantly complained about her, and said that it felt like they were at best friends and nothing more lately," said a source who worked directly with Tatum.
In addition, Tatum told his pal that the pair fought — and the once fiery, passionate romance had lost its spark.
"He said he was not getting any action at home," the source added.
Previously, the pair told friends they were just "on a break" — but now pals know it's over for good.
However, the dad of 4-year-old Everly will remain dedicated to his daughter.
"He cares about his little girl so much," the friend said. "But his daughter is not enough reason for them to stay together."
As Radar previously reported, the couple has fought over Tatum's flirting with other women and exploding career as Dewan remained a less in-demand actress.
Tatum and Dewan, both 37, announced their separation on their Instagram accounts last night in a joint statement.
"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together," they said. "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 former couple met in 2006 on the set of Step Up, and married three years later in 2009.
