Channing Tatum has a ‘friendly vibe’ with his girlfriend’s dad, Lenny Kravitz

Zoe Kravitz and Channing Tatum take a walk after having lunch with a friend

For years, I’ve felt like Channing Tatum is basically just a sweet, charming guy from the Deep South. He’s not a sophisticate, but he gets by on charm, charisma and hard work. I can only imagine the huge difference in his background and Zoe Kravitz’s background. Zoe is second-generation Hollywood, she grew up in LA, Miami and New York. Her father owns a beautiful home in Paris, where he hosted her first wedding. This world must be completely foreign to Channing. But so far, so good. He’s basically keeping his head down and trying not to f–k it up, I think. According to Star Magazine, Channing has bonded with Zoe’s father though.

According to an insider, Zoe Kravitz has taken a big step with new boyfriend Channing Tatum, introducing him to her famous family. Tatum gets along well with Zoe’s mother Lisa Bonet, and stepdad Jason Momoa, says the insider. But Channing has formed a special bond with her father, Lenny Kravitz, 57.

“Channing’s always been a big Lenny fan, and they have this jokey, friendly vibe whenever they get together,” the insider explains, adding that Lenny isn’t “grilling” Channing about future plans with Zoe. “He just wants his daughter to be happy, and it seems like Zoe is. She and Channing are getting serious and Lenny is fine with that!”

Yeah, Lenny isn’t the kind of dad who, like, grabs a shotgun to greet his daughter’s new boyfriend. Lenny is peace and vibes and he’s always seemed to want Zoe to have her freedom and her own life. Channing is probably respectful towards Zoe’s parents. I bet he actually vibes more with Jason Momoa than Lenny, although let’s be fair… Jason and Lenny are both incredibly lovely men. I bet they’ve both befriended Channing.

    Omg 3 hot men in the family. I think all 3 men seem like good men and all 3 sexy in there own way but I would take Lenny Kravitz over any of them any day. Lenny seems like a nice chill guy and to be cool with his ex and ex husband you know he must be a cool cat.

  2. Liz says:

    Zoë is third generation Hollywood – her grandmother was Roxie Roker (The Jeffersons). Yes, Lenny Kravits and Al Roker are related to each other.

    I am only here to say two things, one Lenny is just hot and second, he has a signature line with a home furnishings company. Totally not adding anything to this story but I am a Lenny-Looney.

    I have never found CT hot until that picture of him with Zoe. I can’t tell if it’s Zoe or the hair or what.

    Too much hotness in one post!

    Lenny always seem Rich & Unbothered in the very best way. Zoe is 32 years old; he and Lisa divorced nearly 30 years ago. Of course he shouldn’t care about his adult daughter’s boyfriends or his ex-wife’s new husband, but that’s not always the case with celebs grasping at relevancy. Congrats to Lenny for knowing he doesn’t have to play those thirsty games.

    I can’t wait for a picture of Lenny, Jason, and Channing together.

  8. The Recluse says:

    One thing I’ve always appreciated about Tanning is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He is willing to be silly.

    I need to know what happened with Karl. They were so loved up throughout their relationship and then divorced so quickly after being married and now she’s in a new serious relationship rather quickly. Not judging and obviously there’s more behind the scenes that we don’t see on social media….but I kinda though Karl was going to at least last a lot longer.
