Channing Tatum and Thandiwe Newton fight.

Filming on the third magic microphone Filming ground to a halt yesterday in London after actress Thandiwe Newton abruptly walked out of production.

Early reports indicated that Newton’s exit was due to a heated verbal exchange between him and his co-star Channing Tatum, who played the lead role and was a producer on the film.

The argument was supposed to be over the infamous ‘Oscars Slap’, where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage after a joke was made about Jada Pinkett Smith. For those of you who are film buffs, you’ll remember that Newton and Smith acted together in 2006 That Chasing happiness.

Based on Suna crew member said: “Channing Tatum was producer and number one on set. Thandiwe Newton was star number two. But 11 days after shooting and it was all over.

“They fell out because of the disaster at the Oscars. I was on set. I watched him and watched him. They were in and out of the house where we were filming having this confrontation. It was a tense exchange of words, but suddenly it escalated – Channing walked in into this car and he disappeared.

“People looked at each other and thought, ‘Wait, we should be shooting’. After the fight, he just said, ‘I don’t work with him anymore’. He was the producer, this is the film, so he left the film.”

Newton was also accused of “diva-like” behavior on set and was immediately fired after his exchange with Tatum.

However, according to today’s news from Page Sixthe argument and the shooting was fabricated.

“This report is completely inaccurate,” said a spokesman for Newton.

Instead, Newton left production – and was replaced by Salma Hayek – due to mental health issues and will likely check into a rehab clinic after flying back to the United States.

Sources told the publication that Newton had been “battling emotional and family issues after being separated from her husband of 24 years, Ol Parker.” She and Parker have three children together.
