Channing Tatum's ex Jenna Dewan officially files for divorce six months after announcing split
Nearly seven months after their split, Jenna Dewanis officially divorcing Channing Tatum.
Dewan, 37, filed for divorce from Tatum, 38, on Friday in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences, according to documents obtained by The Blast.
In the filing, Dewan is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old daughter Everly and is also seeking child support and spousal support.
The “Step Up” actress, who is being represented by divorce lawyer Samantha Spector, is also asking that her last name be changed back to Dewan from Dewan-Tatum.
Tatum filed shortly after Dewan, according to The Blast, and is also asking for joint custody.
The couple got married in 2009, three years after meeting on the set of “Step Up.”
The couple announced they were splitting up in April when they said in a joint statement: “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.”
Page Six reported at the time that they were splitting up “due to spending more time apart because of the pressure of work,” citing a Hollywood source.
