According to legal documents obtained by Radar, the 21 Jump Street actor, 41, and the The Resident star, 41, have requested additional time to continue working on settlement agreements over money from the Magic Mike franchise.
The formerly married couple's attorneys were in court on Thursday, December 9, as they continue to put the finishing touches on the stars' divorce agreement.
After agreeing to work the issue out, Tatum and Dewan — who share 8-year-old daughter Everly — nearly avoided a contentious trial. The Witches of East End star had originally requested a trial date due to unresolved issues she had with her former spouse.
Legal representatives for both stars explained to the court that they are “working on a settlement” now and requested a date for a hearing in place of a trial date for February 24, 2022. Before that time, the former spouses — who were reportedly at odds about percentages— must come to an agreement.
The money at the center of the dispute is the money made from the hit dance franchise which includes revenue from the films, live stage show and the upcoming HBO Max reality show. Dewan had found choreographers for the live show and took care of their family while Tatum worked on the successful project.
Dewan and Tatum were married in 2009 after meeting on the set of the dance film Step Up. The two filed for divorce and were declared legally single in 2019. The mother-of-two requested joint legal and physical custody of their daughter.
As OK! previously reported, Dewan recently opened up about their past marriage and how the Hollywood hunk "wasn't available to be with us, for the most part" after giving birth to their baby girl back in 2013 due to being busy with work commitments.
