Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum are not “headed for divorce,” nor should have a few comments on social media led to an article questioning the state of their marriage. Regardless, Gossip Cop looked into the claim and we’ve been assured it’s untrue. A mutual friend of ours and Dewan calls the speculation “just dumb.”

According to CafeMom, Dewan’s “shameless dress pic” has people thinking “she’s divorcing Channing.” The site then notes how the actress posted a picture on Instagram of herself in a sexy outfit at Sunday’s American Music Awards, along with a caption that reads, “Shameless dress pic. Because it’s one of my favorites ever.” The outlet asserts that the solo image has fans wondering whether “Channing’s absence is a sign this duo is headed to divorce court.”

To justify its article, the website reproduced examples of Instagram commenters asking, for instance, “Where is Channing?” and “Are u 2 next on Hollywood divorce list?” But that’s not journalism. If the outlet had questions about the state of the couple’s marriage, it should have fact-checked its claim rather than taking non-reporters’ remarks on social media and turning it into a bogus story.

Gossip Cop, however, separates facts from fiction in celebrity reporting. Tatum and Dewan’s marriage has its ups and downs like most relationships, but they are not “headed for divorce,” as speculated. As noted above, a Dewan insider tells us the outlet’s claim is “just dumb.” In fact, the two were the picture of happiness just two week ago at the premiere of the Tatum-produced documentary War Dog: A Soldier’s Best Friend (above).

Of course, this false narrative has been around for a few years. It began when Star published a completely inaccurate cover story in 2014 that wrongly maintained Dewan and Tatum were getting a divorce. One would think the tabloid would have left bad enough alone, but a year ago, it again contended Tatum and Dewan were living “separate lives.” There was no truth to that claim, nor is there any to what CafeMom terms “reignited rumors.”
