Channing Tatum Magic Mike 3described by the actor as “the Super Bowl of stripper movies”, is currently in production. However, the long-awaited sequel directed by Tatum recently saw a cast reshuffle after Thandiwe Newton pulled out of the proceedings. In Warner Bros.’ official statement, it was said that it was due to “family reasons”, while sources also initially claimed that his exit was due to a dust with Tatum. Now, it seems that following this situation and her separation from her husband, Newton is heading for rehab.

It was alleged that during his time on the set of Magic Mike’s Last Dance, Thandiwe Newton exhibited unusual behavior. According to page 6, after crew members expressed concern for her, Newton’s agent arrived on the London-based set to ease the situation. However, the star eventually left the project and returned to the United States, where she would seek treatment. Sources say the star’s split from her husband of 24 years, Ol Parker, and other personal issues have apparently affected her work on the upcoming film:

Thandiwe had acted strangely on set, she was very nervous. Her apparent meltdown caused so much disruption that it became clear she couldn’t play the part. A lot is happening in her personal life, she and her husband have separated. She seemed so stressed that she even brought her two pet rabbits to her hotel for emotional support.
