Jenna Dewan has asked to have her maiden name restored.
The ‘Step Up’ actress split from Channing Tatum in April 2018 and they finalised their divorce last September, but their agreement didn’t include anything about the 39-year-old beauty ditching her legal name of Jenna Tatum and reverting back to her old surname.
According to TMZ, the actress – who was known profesionally as Jenna Dewan Tatum during her marriage – has submitted documents asking a court to restore her legal name to Jenna Dewan.
Although the former couple have been declared legally single, they are still working on a property settlement agreement.
Last month, it was reported the pair had reached an agreement over custody of their six-year-old daughter Everly, which will see them share care 50/50 and work out a fair holiday schedule.
The former couple also agreed not to feature Everly in “any for-profit posts” on social media. This includes “sponsorships, advertisements, or any social media campaign without the other party’s consent”.
However, they are both free to post family pictures whenever they want.

The agreement between the ‘Magic Mike’ actor and his former spouse came two months after Channing reportedly left Jenna stunned when he asked a judge to draw up a holiday custody schedule for their daughter.
