Jenna Dewan has turned to her family for support in the wake of her split from Channing Tatum.

The 37-year-old actress and Channing announced their break-up in a joint statement earlier this month, and Jenna has subsequently decided to remove herself from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, temporarily relocating to a coastal community.

A source told E! News: ''She was surrounded by family and had a quiet weekend there.

''It's close enough that she can get out of LA easily and spend time with people she is close to.''

Jenna and Channing, 37 - who have four-year-old daughter Everly together - shocked the world when they recently announced their separation.

In a lengthy statement on Twitter, the Hollywood duo admitted that their romanced had evaporated, but that they didn't have any ''secrets'' to hide regarding their split.

The statement read: ''Hey world! So... We have something we would like to share. First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it's a consequence of the lives we've chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We're living in an incredible moment in time, but it's also a time where truth can easily get distorted into 'alternative facts' So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn't read it here then it's most certainly fiction.

''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 nor salacious events at the root of our decision - just two best-friends realizing 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. We won't be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family's privacy. Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna. (sic)''
