Entertainment Tonight: Channing Tatum Wants Co-Parenting Counselor to Set Child Custody Schedule for Him and Ex-Wife Jenna Dewan
Channing Tatum has requested a court to appoint a counselor to help ease the child custody conflict between him and his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan.
Channing Tatum has been co-parenting his 6-year-old daughter, Everly, with his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, and while they both appear to have it locked down, it seems there are conflicts behind the scenes.
THE GOAL IS EQUAL TIME WITH BEVERLY
Tatum and Dewan are not on the same page when it comes to scheduling their daughter's visits, and he petitioned the court for a counselor, who'll act as a middle man, and meet with them once a month to hash out any issues they might have.
The court documents obtained by E.T., states,
"Due to our professions, our schedules are constantly changing, and flexibility is needed to ensure that we are both able to work and be able to have equal time with Beverly."
"We have difficulty navigating these accommodations without assistance, which has led to both confusion and conflict."
CONSENT OR NO CONSENT?
The document also showed that a counselor would help prevent the conflict and help the former couple be better co-parents. The "Magic Mike" star is also requesting that the court grants both parents permission to travel within the United States with Everly without the other's consent.
Still, approval is needed when either Tatum or Dewan wants to take their daughter outside the country. The actor also wants permission for either him for his ex to take their girl out of school for five days if it's work-related or a special day, and equally alternate between holidays, and vacations.
The "G.I. Joe" star requested that neither he nor the "Mixtape" actress be allowed to use Everly's name for any paid sponsorship, social media, or ad campaign without getting consent, and FaceTiming every day should be allowed.
TATUM AND DEWAN ARE OFFICIALLY DIVORCED
Tatum and Dewan met on the set of "Step Up" in 2006, and their marriage lasted for eight years. The actress filed for divorce in 2018, and the two became officially divorced this November. While they are still hashing out settlements, and dividing their estates, they are both free to remarry if they choose.
The former couple has both moved on, with the actor dating the British singer, Jessie J, and the actress, the actor, Steve Kazee.
The mom-of-one and her man are expecting their first child together. Despite the custody conflicts, Tatum and Dewan are graceful towards each other, and they are both invested in their daughter's welfare.
