Jenna Dewan officially files for divorce from Channing Tatum

Jenna Dewan Tatum has officially filed for divorce from Channing Tatum six months after they announced they were splitting.

The Step Up actress, 37, filed for divorce on Friday afternoon in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences, according to The Blast .

She’s reportedly asking for joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old daughter.

Jenna is also seeking child support and spousal support and has requested to have her name restored to Jenna Dewan.


Channing, 38, filed his response shortly after and is also asking for joint custody of their girl.

The former couple wed in July 2009 after meeting on the set of Step Up.

The filing comes just a few weeks after it was revealed the Magic Mike star is dating Brit singer Jessie J.

The Hollywood star, 38, and Jessie, 30, are thought to have been seeing each other for a few months.

Eagle-eyed Jessie J fans noticed Channing at two of her recent concerts in Seattle and Salt Lake City.

While sources close to Jenna said she knew her ex was dating – and she is too.

They told E! Online: “Jenna knew that Channing was dating and it wasn’t a surprise.

“A friend had told her what was going on. She doesn’t really care what Channing does as long as he’s being there for Everly [their five-year-old daughter]," they said.

“Jenna’s dating too and they are both moving on with their lives.”

Channing and Jenna announced their split with a joint statement in April.

"Hey world! So… We have something we would like to share," they wrote.

"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."
