Please stop everything that you’re doing because I have some absolutely devastating news: the ongoing theory that love is in fact not real and is all a total farce has further been proved as Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum announce they’re separating after eight years of marriage.

A couple who brought us one of the god damned hottest Lip Sync Battle performances EVER, have successfully dashed our hopes that love might actually be a good and nice thing. After Chris Pratt and Anna Faris split late last year, it’s as if this is indeed The Bad Place and Ted Danson is sitting behind a one-way window somewhere, maniacally cackling.

Channing – or ‘Chan’ as his friends call him – made the heartbreaking post on his Twitter today, confirming that there’s no bad blood between him and Jenna, and that they’re going to continue to co-parent their daughter Everly.

It’s not even April Fools in the US anymore, so this is 100% absolutely real. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Take time to be alone for a moment if you need to, and breathe through the knowledge that a) this is so upsetting and b) Channing Tatum is essentially going to be free game again in a few months.
