The estranged pair have remained friendly since their breakup. “They’ve both handled their split maturely from the start,” a source told Us in December 2018. “This whole situation has never been contentious, and there’s never been any animosity or hatred toward each other.”

However, things were more complicated by February. “It’s been challenging and emotional,” an insider revealed of the divorce at the time, with another adding: “There are certain hurdles that they face.”

Tatum raved over his daughter’s resilience in court documents obtained by Us in January. “In my opinion and experience, Everly has appeared to adjust to our separation and living in two homes exceptionally well,” he said. “I believe that she will thrive even more with structure and consistency because she is happy and more relaxed when she knows a plan.”
