Geez! The news of the split up of two power celebrity couples, Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett and Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan, have hit us harder than a storm.
Now we don’t know which hurts most, #ChanJen or #HanKen, but we sure didn’t see these coming… or sorta.
First, lets talk about Kendra’s. The couple has been together for nine years but have decided to call it quits. Nevertheless, we can’t exactly call this a surprise after rumors of the split had been circulating since the beginning of the year. In fact, there has been a rift in their marriage since Hank’s 2014 cheating speculations. Hank allegedly cheated on Kendra with a transgender model, while she was 8 months old pregnant with their daughter, Alijah! This broke Kendra and caused her to take off her wedding ring for a long while.
However, the former Playmate decided to stay with her husband because “she truly believes in marriage”. Consequently, they had to resort to TV shows, which included Kendra’s own show, Kendra on Top, to portray and deal with their issues. Kendra even had to slam trolls who implied that she had ‘faked marital problems for the show’. In the long run, though, it looks like the ‘happily ever after’ fairy-tale for Kendra has come to an end.
In a series of heartbreaking Instagram posts (which she’s taken down), Kendra announced her separation from her husband and father of their two kids, Hank Baskett.
Kendra spoke in tears in a video she put on Instagram…
“Ten years. I did everything I could. It wasn’t good enough. I will always love him, and my heart will always remain open for him. I believed him forever. I really did. Guess it’s just not meant to be. I’m so scared. I have to get strong for my kids. I will. Thank you to all my friends and family for supporting me at the moment. Every little ounce of love helps. Thank you. Never thought I’d see the day, really.”
“Ten years. I did everything I could. It wasn’t good enough…Guess it’s just not meant to be. I’m so scared. I have to get strong for my kids.”
Such a shame…
Additionally, we had barely swallowed down the news of #HanKen split, then came another! Fancy celebrity couple, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have also announced their separation! Just last night!
So this photo was posted on Instagram at the same time by both Tatum and Dewan. Also nine years into marriage, the couple indicated that there’s no ‘secret’ to their divorce decision. It could be that they got tired of living together or something but definitely these two have parted on amicable grounds. The marriage is survived by their ‘soon-to-turn 5’ year old daughter, Everly Tatum.
This golden couple of Hollywood came to be after falling in love on the set of “Step up”. After Channing cracked Jenna’s code, the two got married in 2009 at a beautiful but private ceremony in Malibu. Their breakup has, until further notice, been dubbed the ‘celebrity breakup of the year‘.
