And as a consequence of them living their lives, digital tears are flowing on social media in the form of crying emojis, GIFs and memes.
Perhaps this Hollywood breakup is hitting pop culture vultures extra hard in wake of so many other seemingly rock-steady celebrity marriages failing. As many on Twitter pointed out while mourning the Tatums, we recently lost couples Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. All eyes are now on one of the internet's favorite star couple, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, as it seems an entire generation's faith in true love is resting on their shoulders. No pressure, guys.
As we inevitably ponder and dig for answers as to what went wrong in Channing and Jenna's relationship (According to them, “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision"), let's take a moment of silence to observe, point and laugh at and/or with the following people who care entirely too much about some couple they've likely never met before.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are separating. Love is dead. Step Up is ruined. April is cancelled.
#ChanningTatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are separating, which means love is a lie and nothing is real. If you need me I'll be watching every single Step Up movie ever made, and crying like a girl whose public school didn't have professional dance teachers.
CHANNING TATUM AND JENNA DEWAN TATUM HAVE SPLIT AND I AM BROKEN, I DO NOT BELIEVE IN LOVE ANYMORE, IT IS JUST A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT THAT ISN'T REAL AND NEVER WILL BE GOODBYE I AM GONNA GO CRY INTO MY ICE CREAM #channingandjenna
