We do not even want to deal with an rumored Channing Tatum/Alex Pettyfer beef today. We want to continue believing that Magic Mike is a documentary film about two good buddies who teach each other the best way to take off their pants…and the best way to take off their hearts’ pants. Sadly, according to Us Magazine, this is not to be; Pettyfer and Tatum reportedly had “massive fights on set,” and not the kind that take place in a baby pool filled with pudding while divorcees sprinkle them with dollar bills. According to their source, Channing even had one of Pettyfer’s scenes cut from the film out of spite. “He hates Alex. Channing thought Alex was a diva on set,” their source claims. Someone is referring to someone else as a diva…but not in a good way? Could this story possible get any worse?
The only way we could conceivably believe such a preposterous story is if we were to, um, look at all the evidence that Alex Pettyfer is sort of a brat. Between his allegedly snotty attitude on the set of I Am Number Four and Glee‘s Diana Agron allegedly being “terrified” of him post break-up, Pettyfer’s ‘tude is already stuff of budding legend. I Am Number Four? More like I Am Number Two. Because his attitude is like poop. Right, guys? Sorry; clearly we’re still reeling from this news. “Alex was a jerk to everyone during filming for no reason. He thinks he’s the star of the movie, not Channing or Matthew McConaughey,” their source continued. Whoa, whoa, whoa…what? Blasphemy! You need to get a gripe, Pettyfer, or you are out of the sequel. And if you don’t want to be a part of Magic Mike’s strip wedding, that is on you! That is on you!
