This split has been named as the most devastating celebrity break-up of 2018

True love no longer exists.

2018 was one hell of a year for news - good and bad.

A number of amazing things happened, like the repealing of the 8th amendment and the fact that we finally saw some snow.

However, there were some sad tales in 2018, especially in the land of love.

We watched a large number of very public celebrity splits this year, from Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux to Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson.

However, one breakup really stood out, and made us question if love really exists.

In April 2018, after nine years of marriage, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum announced their split.

Honestly, we were shocked, we really thought they were in it for life.

The pair had met in 2006, on the set of Step Up, and tied the knot in 2009.

The couple, who have one daughter together, shared the news in a joint statement on social media in April:

"We have something we'd like to share."

"First off, it feels off that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone but it's a consequence of the lives we've chosen to lead."

"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now."

"There are no secrets or salacious events at the root of our decision - just two best friends realising it's time to take some space  and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible."

"We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly."
