For all you ladies out there who flocked to the theaters to see Channing Tatum dance around in his birthday suit in Magic Mike, need to know that there’s a guy out there…in a Florida jail to be more specific…saying that he and C-Tate were stripping partners back in the 90′s and the movie is based on his life.
His name is Michael Sorrentino, same as the Jersey Shore one, but he goes by Magic Mike. Or at least he did, back when he took his clothes off for a living.
In an exclusive interview, he told us how he took a young Channing under his wing and showed him the way and taught him epic dance moves and choreography. And now he feels slighted that Tatum took his story, used his name, and made a movie about it without so much as a phone call or letter.
No word from Channing so far, but we bet he’s pretty busy counting all those singles he made from the flick.
