Jenna Dewan-Tatum drops married name on social media


Actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum has gone back to her maiden name on social media.

The Step Up star and estranged husband Channing Tatum announced their split after nine years of marriage earlier this month (Apr18) and Jenna is moving forward with her single life by changing her name on Twitter and Instagram back to Jenna Dewan.

Jenna’s handles on the social media sites have always read “@jennadewan,” but her name was previously listed as Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

According to reports, she made the change on Thursday (19Apr18).
In November (17), Dewan explained her decision to hyphenate her last name left her estranged husband “miffed”.

Channing is very traditional,” she said while guest co-hosting an episode of Live! with Kelly and Ryan. “I’m kind of not. My family was very liberal and that wasn’t a thing, but to him it was very important.”

“He’s still kind of miffed that I didn’t just take Tatum,” she added. “For some reason, it was really hard for me to let go of my given name.”
