Movie hunk Alex Pettyfer’s stardom has stalled since 2012’s Magic Mike — and sources said he blames a feud with co-star Channing Tatum for holding him back!

Insiders said Alex, 29, and Channing, 39, clashed when Alex complained about getting paid less and Channing accused the British stud of being standoffish.

But sources said the situation escalated after Alex rented an apartment from Channing’s pal but moved without paying rent!

Channing allegedly followed up with a furious email: “Don’t f–k with my friends!” Afterward, Alex was written out of 2015’s Magic Mike XXL.

The source said after butting heads with Channing, Alex’s hot career quickly cooled. Though he headlined The Last Witness in 2018, the movie barely earned $3,000 at the box office.

“Channing’s not out there actively trying to sabotage Alex’s career,” said an insider. “But he’s certainly not putting in a good word for him, either.”
