Well, that clears THAT up!
While we've known for a while that Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer don't exactly get along, the English actor is finally spilling about their feud, which he officially confirmed is no longer just a rumor.

He told Bret Easton Ellis all about their rivalry during Monday's installment of his podcast, saying:
"It's true. Because Channing Tatum does not like me — and for many reasons [and] many being my own fault."
But, the 25-year-old claimed that his poor reputation on the set of Magic Mike came about because he was too shy and insecure during filming, adding:
"I was scared to speak. I actually did my work and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told anything I did was wrong by my reps. I was very insecure as a human being. That also gave me a bad rep because everyone was like, 'Alex doesn't speak because he thinks he's better than everyone else.' That's not true. I was just generally nervous and scared to be myself. I was in character."
The I Am Number Four star also remembered there was a time when he was living with one of the 35-year-old's friends — up until he allegedly had an allergic reaction to the apartment and "couldn't breathe" while he stayed there.
Then when he moved out, the UK native claimed he didn't remember to pay the rent because his cousin had passed away. He recalled that didn't sit too well with the She's The Man alum, explaining:
"All of a sudden I got a very negative email from Channing — rightfully so — saying, 'Don't f*ck my friends. You owe money. Pay the f*cking money. Don't be a clown.' And I really took that the wrong way, which I shouldn't have, and emailed him back and said, 'I'm in a real negative headspace and can you respect me for a moment and blah, blah, blah.' And I got hounded through this time of grieving for money."
However, Alex did appear to take on the blame when he was telling this story, continuing:
"By the end of it I just said, 'F*ck them, what is money when life is so much more. I'm not paying.' And I should have just paid. I think he was looking for an excuse to not like me."
But then again, he also alleged Channing was turning everyone against him. The film actor said his costar had told people during reshoots of the male dancer flick that he didn't like him, recalling:
"What Channing says goes. He's a movie star. I made the poor decisions."
But in spite of all the bad blood, Alex admits that he doesn't regret a thing about their rocky relationship, saying:
"Channing was actually an incredible influence on me because after this whole situation happened — this was kind of the end of my immaturity and all my experiences put into one It was an incredible experience making Magic Mike. I wouldn't replace it for anything."
Well, after hearing all these stories, we aren't entirely surprised that his character Adam was nowhere to be found in Magic Mike XXL.
What do you think about all the drama, Perezcious readers?
