Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan remain amicable amidst legal battle

Actors Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan may be locked in a legal battle over finances six years after they announced their split, but the parents of 10-year-old daughter Everly still remain amicable. “They have been co-parenting and although the remaining money issues are frustrating, they don’t hate each other,” a source tells PEOPLE.

Tatum, 44, and Dewan, 43 – who met on the set of the 2006 film Step Up and wed in 2009 – don’t see eye-to-eye over financial issues, including profits reaped from the Magic Mike franchise. Tatum produced and starred in three films, which collectively earned hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office. The movies have also spawned a live Las Vegas stage show and a reality series.

Dewan has claimed in court documents that Tatum used “marital funds” to acquire the intellectual property, and is hoping for an “equal division”. His side, meanwhile, argues that he has “expended extensive efforts…towards the enhancement of the Magic Mike intellectual property and related entities” since the former couple’s separation in 2018. Unable to come to an agreement in mediation, Tatum and Dewan are now headed for a trial, which is scheduled to begin Dec. 8.
