Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum continue their legal dispute, initiated six years ago, as their divorce proceedings persist. The latest development sees Dewan asserting her claim to a portion of the profits generated by the “Magic Mike” franchise. Her legal representatives argue that she deserves a share of the substantial earnings from this widely recognized cultural phenomenon since it originated during their marriage.

According to court records, Dewan’s legal team contends that Tatum, along with his financial advisors, employed intricate business structures to conceal profits from the “Magic Mike” franchise, thus preventing Dewan from receiving her rightful entitlement. They further allege that Tatum’s failure to disclose specific business opportunities related to “Magic Mike” post their separation in 2018 lies at the crux of their disagreement. Tatum’s legal counsel refutes Dewan’s claim for a larger portion of the “Magic Mike” proceeds, labelling it as a desperate attempt to stall the divorce proceedings.

Evidently, a trial appears inevitable to reach a resolution. Both sides have submitted witness lists, which prominently feature individuals pivotal to the production of “Magic Mike.” Noteworthy is Tatum’s inclusion of Dewan’s current fiancé, Steven Kazee, among his witnesses, presumably to provide testimony regarding their cohabitation and shared financial matters. This move indicates that the dispute is far from being settled, signalling an enduring legal battle between the parties involved.
