Channing Tatum has opened up to his heartbreak after his childhood best friend died.
While he shared about twenty of the two as young friends walking around the football field, Channing paid an emotional tribute to his late BFF.
"Rip Corey I will never forget your crazy ass, I love you with all my heart, all my prayers for your beautiful family," he wrote the throwback photo on Instagram.
He also shared a statement in which he thanked Corey for coming to him when Channing first moved states.
"My very first best friend Corey Vaughn left this world for the next Tuesday the 21st." There is so much to say, "he wrote.
I will never forget his crazy ass and how he stood up for me and protected me when I first moved to Mississippi. He had fought someone. All the laughter and trouble we went to.
"I will never be able to see that smile from him again in this life and it has only been done to remind everyone that you do not postpone anything, see a friend, or even call or text." You never know what the future. "
Channing then added: "Corey would want us to laugh and lift hell in his wake and have as much joy as someone can do, and I will certainly do that. And I will forever miss, my brother's sweetheart. & # 39;
It comes after a difficult few months for the Magic Mike star, who in April after months of reported celebrations said goodbye to his wife Jenna Dewan as they juggle their four-year-old daughter Everly.
In a 2014 interview, the Magic Mike star admitted that his evil ways could be a problem for Jenna.

"I probably drink too much," he told the magazine Star. "My wife, that's what she bought."
And in 2015, he hinted at how his work obligations took over everything – including time with his wife and daughter.
"None of this is easy, but at the same time it is everything I would ever want", he told People Magazine.
He confessed that he juggled the work and family life "not very well" and added: "I'm lucky that there are people who care enough to make sure that I do not mess up."
He continued by saying, "We are [Jenna and I] a good support system for each other. We continue to push each other to grow and become better. I do not think I could do it in any other way [than with her]. "
There were reports of Channing's allegedly flirtatious behavior with other women as he filmed Foxcatcher, with a source that Star claimed he was acting as a single man on the set – especially with one of his female co-stars.
"After filming a scene together, he started to sing to her and bounce into Total Eclipse Of The Heart, their faces touching each other as they danced and sang," one witness said at the time.
But Channing concluded reports that his behavior was the fault of their marriage, with his statement: "I would like to make it clear that none of these rumors is true, the reason our statement was so positive [was] because that is the reality of the situation. "
