Channing Tatum needed to get tested for COVID-19 after his 40th birthday to make sure he was in good health and eliminate any risk of spreading it to his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, and their daughter.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Channing recently volunteered to get tested for COVID-19 after his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, raised some concerns about him possibly being exposed — this following a little birthday get-together he hosted in late April.
Some context … Channing had turned 40 on April 26, and he and five of his closest buddies — whom we’re told were all safely quarantining on their own before rolling through — hung out for his 40th to do a little dirt biking at his personal ranch. No harm, no foul, right?
Welp, not exactly … we’re told Jenna caught wind and expressed concerns Channing could’ve been exposed and put their daughter, Everly — who goes back and forth between mom and dad — as well as for Jenna herself, at risk. Jenna’s also got a new baby at home.
We’re told Channing understood the concern and decided to get tested on his own. After a few days of waiting for results — during which Everly stayed a few extra days with Jenna — Channing got an answer … negative.
Our sources say since then, Channing has made up the time he lost … and the former couple are back on their regular custody schedule, and everything’s going off without a hitch. Now, that’s how you successfully co-parent!
