Channing Tatum slams ex-wife Jenna Dewan's claim he was 'absent' after daughter Everly's birth and 'went above & beyond'

CHANNING Tatum SLAMMED ex-wife Jenna Dewan's claims he was "absent" following the birth of their daughter, Everly, 8.

Shortly before the Step Up star posted a new rare photo of her little girl, she had accused her ex of not being there for his family for MONTHS. 

However, sources close to the actor told TMZ today that Channing went "above and beyond" for his kids.

"He chartered a private plane for Jenna, Everly and a doula — and rented out a nice home in the city — to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable," the insider wrote.

The informant also claimed that Channing would make trips back home as "often as he could" while he was on location for film sets.

On Tuesday, Jenna, 40, shared adorable snapshots of her two children on Instagram. 

The Step Up actress was soaking wet as she played in the swimming pool with Everly and Callum, one.

While Jenna held them both in her arms, Everly spread her arms out and splashed water everywhere.


Standing outside the pool, their dog peeked in too and photobombed the snaps. 

Jenna captioned the photos: "Any parent knows this is a baby miracle right here. All looking all smiling."

Dewan is currently engaged to Steve Kazee and gave birth to Callum back in 2020.

During Dear Media's podcast Dear Gabby, the movie star talked about the difficulty of being away from her ex-hubby Channing, 41, during the weeks after giving birth to their daughter.

After Everly's birth, the TV star said she was working and traveling with the then-newborn while the Magic Mike actor "wasn't available" due to his work schedule.

Jenna said: "I had to travel with her and at the time, Chan wasn't available to be with us for the most part. So, it was me, my doula, and Evie all by ourselves traveling at six weeks."

The Supergirl actress realized how balancing motherhood and work was "really hard," since she was on set for many "long hours."


She added: "I did have her on set with me constantly. It was just really difficult." 

Jenna shared: "It was like, I just never stopped. You know, you're up a couple times in the night and then you're working all day.

"I was breastfeeding, I was pumping, I was without a partner, I mean it was just craziness."

Jenna and Channing filed for divorce back in 2018.

Channing moved on to singer Jessie J but they called it off back in April of last year.

Recently, Jenna appeared as a guest host on The Talk and managed to impress fans and staff. 

Sources told The Sun that producers think that the Tamara actress will bring a high-profile edge to the chat show.

An insider revealed: "Jenna is a stunner and beautifully spoken and has 6million Instagram followers so she would be an upgrade for the show."

The executives in charge were impressed at how she tackled Demi Lovato's celebration of 420 despite her previous battle with drugs.

Another source mentioned: "Jenna didn't get a chance to shine until later in the show speaking about Demi Lovato's use of marijuana in her sobriety."
