Jenna Dewan claims Channing Tatum is "attempting to blur the lines" of how much Magic Mike money she is entitled to in their divorce.

In a court filing made May 8, Dewan's lawyers urged for a separate trial to hash out how much of the Magic Mike earnings she is entitled to before beginning the larger divorce proceedings where they'll divide the rest of their assets.

Magic Mike, which started with a 2012 movie that Tatum starred in and produced, has spawned several sequels, a reality show and a popular Las Vegas attraction. Dewan, 43, and her lawyers argue in the filing that the "story idea [i.e., Magic Mike] which is an intellectual property asset that was entirely created during the marriage," so she should get half.

But her side claims that Tatum, 44, "transferred a portion" of their "community" Magic Mike profits into another third-party entity months after their separation "without Jenna’s knowledge or consent" — allegations Tatum has denied.

Tatum, team Dewan alleges, "is attempting to blur the lines between them in an effort to disguise the passive" second entity "as 'production companies' that generate value through his post-separation efforts to obtain an unequal split of a community property asset between the parties."

Her reason for a bifurcated "equitable" trial? Exactly what is hers between the two Magic Mike-infused money pools needs to be "tried, tackled and ruled upon before the remaining issues come to trial to prevent her from being painted into a corner...."

Tatum's legal team is not on board with a separate trial on the matter. The actor adamantly disputed Dewan's claims in his previous filings, saying he "never denied her share of any community assets or income. Her claims that I have ‘colluded with third parties’ are completely false."

“She has had complete access to all our financial records for all activities during our marriage and since separation," his lawyers added. "I continue to provide her with updates regarding Magic Mike financial matters."

In a previous filing, Tatum's lawyers lamented that they have yet to reach a divorce settlement after five years and they need to schedule it for trial without a "last-minute" postponement. They say he has "exhausted all efforts in an attempt to settle this matter without litigation."

While his Magic Mike enterprise began during their marriage, Tatum's lawyers say he "continued to create and develop [it] since separation." The actor "expended extensive efforts since separation towards the enhancement of the Magic Mike intellectual property and related entities, which [Tatum] contends give rise to his separate property interest therein."

Tatum and Dewan met as costars on the 2006 dance film Step Up, and they later married on July 11, 2009. The pair, who share daughter Everly (soon to be 11 years old later this month), announced their breakup in April 2018, but, according to one of Tatum's filings, they had "privately separated months prior." The divorce filing officially came in October 2018.

Both were declared legally single, and he has since moved on with fiancée Zoë Kravitz, and Dewan is engaged to Steve Kazee, with whom she shares son Callum, 4, and is currently expecting another baby.
