Alex Pettyfer Exposes Truth Behind Channing Tatum ‘Magic Mike’ Feud

Fans of Magic Mike have wondered what became of Channing Tatum's co-star and on-screen progeny Alex Pettyfer. He is no where to be seen in Magic Mike XXL. And now we learn, that happened with good reason. Alex Pettyfer has finally opened up about his longtime feud with leading man Channing Tatum. And that his bad reputation and his inability to pay rent have contributed to his former co-star hating his guts.

Alex Pettyfer appeared on Bret Easton Ellis'podcast to discuss the rumors surrounding his very bad behavior. He wanted to clear the air, and clarify some of what has been said about him in the press. He claims he never burned his house down. And he also says that he never expressed a loud outburst of anger on the set of Magic Mike after learning that his co-stars were making more money than he was. Though, he admits that he walked far away from the production to scream out his frustrations. Apparently, he was so loud, those working on set that day still heard his cries of resentment.

Fans of Channing Tatum have gotten to see the rising star in a way they've never seen him before as the title character in Magic Mike. Director Steven Soderbergh's male stripper drama has taken in an impressive $77 million at the box office after just over two weeks in theaters.

The actor's producing partner Reid Carolin wrote the script for Magic Mike, based on Channing Tatum's days as a 19-year-old male stripper in Tampa. It isn't known if Reid Carolin is working on the sequel, or if they plan on bringing new writers in. It's also too early to tell at this point if Steven Soderbergh will be back to direct a follow-up.
