Channing Tatum: My daughter is doing ‘exceptionally well’ amid divorce


Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are putting their daughter first. The Magic Mike actor opened up about how he is focusing on 5-year-old Everly amid his divorce from the former World of Dance host.

“In my opinion and experience, Everly has appeared to adjust to our separation and living in two homes exceptionally well,” Tatum, 38, said in court documents obtained by The Blast on Monday, January 28. “I believe that she will thrive even more with structure and consistency because she is happy and more relaxed when she knows a plan.”

According to the website, the 21 Jump Street star said he rented a house after moving out of the one he shared with Dewan, 38, and has “decorated Everly’s room very girly in a fairytale and fantasy theme (i.e. Alice in Wonderland), with pictures of Everly with both [Dewan] and me on trips.” He also noted that he created an “outdoor art space at the house” for Everly, who has recently “learned about different artists, such as Jackson Pollock, and we try to replicate his work as well as the work of other artists.”

In the documents obtained by The Blast, Tatum said that he and his daughter enjoy playing tic-tac-toe together and she “has an uncanny ability to win Candyland approximately 80% of the time.” They also watch American Ninja Warrior together and play on obstacle courses that he set up in the backyard. In addition, Tatum said that Everly recently started ballet classes and scored the role of Lisa in Mamma Mia!
