Channing Tatum reportedly throws tantrum at London restaurant

Channing Tatum reportedly had a group of people booted from a fancy London restaurant after wrongly accusing them of taking photos of him.

The “Lost City” actor was dining at the posh eatery Louie in Covent Garden while on a break from filming the third installment in the “Magic Mike” franchise, The Sun reports.

A source told the British paper, “There was a group of six enjoying a meal and taking pictures of each other.”

The insider continued, “Channing thought they were taking pictures of him and furiously stuck his middle finger up at them.

“The next thing, the maitre d’ was telling them to leave.”

Reps for Tatum did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment and a manager for the restaurant decl ined to comment.

The actor’s alleged tantrum comes amid plenty of on-set drama after “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” leading lady Thandiwe Newton left the production last month.

Despite rumors that Newton’s exit was a result of a heated argument with Tatum, multiple insiders told Page Six at the time that the “Westworld” star left due to personal family matters.

Page Six then exclusively reported that she was thinking about going to rehab following a string of emotional and family issues that arose amid her separation from husband Ol Parker. The pair had been married for 24 years.

Salma Hayek has since taken over Newton’s role.

While little is known about the third film in the series, which comes 10 years after the first movie premiered in 2012, Tatum told the New York Times that it was inspired by the ’90s rom-com “Pretty Woman.”

“We’re kind of swinging for the fences — there never needs to be another stripper movie after this one,” he told the outlet in March 2020.

“We’re trying to do a fish-out-of-water story where it’s a reverse-role ‘Pretty Woman’ story that ends up with a lot of dancing in it.”
