The couple, which met on the set of 2006’s Step Up and married in 2009, wrote in their announcement that “there are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision”—and based on the lack of tabloid dirt about them thus far, they seem to be right.
Page Six had a headline that promised “the real reason” for the breakup; the piece leaned heavily on their Instagram post and a source who essentially just repeated it, saying, “Both Channing and Jenna are devoted to their daughter and have worked hard to spend as much happy family time together, despite the problems in their relationship that the distance has seemed to magnify.”
The Daily Mail, usually likely to uncover some kind of hidden dirt or salacious angle, just posted about the couple’s last vacation together, which they called a “make or break” getaway, featuring Dewan’s dreamy-looking Instagrams.
In February 2014, Braxton released an album called Love, Marriage & Divorce , a collaborative effort with artist Babyface that won a Grammy in 2015.
In 2003, screenwriter Nancy Meyers’s film Something’s Gotta Give , featuring a divorced playwright (portrayed by Diane Keaton ) who falls in love with a known player on the N.Y.C.
dating scene (Nicholson), was inspired by parts of her own split in 1999 from her creative partner, director, and producer Charles Shyer, The New York Times reported.
She kept the divorce-recovery-via-art theme going when she later wrote on the topic—featuring recognizable parallels to her own family experience—in 2009’s romantic comedy It’s Complicated , starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin.
