She flew to the US from London last week and her team are hoping for her support as she fears she is in a ‘bad place’.

“Stressed” Thandiwe is also said to have fired her British agent after three decades.

Last week, The Sun told how she got into a fight with her co-star Channing Tatum on the set of Magic Mike’s Last Dance.

She was replaced in the unspecified role by 55-year-old Salma Hayek.

Warner Bros later said she “made the difficult decision to retire from production to attend to family matters.”

A source told PageSix in the US: “Thandiwe was acting strange on set, she was very tense.”

They added that her behavior “caused so much anxiety that it became clear she couldn’t play the part. There’s a lot going on in her personal life.

“She and her husband have separated. She seemed so stressed that she even brought her two pet rabbits to her hotel for emotional support.

They share daughters Ripley, 21, and Nico, 17, and son Booker Jombe, 8.

The pair have not been seen together in public since vacationing in Ibiza in mid-2020.

Thandiwe officials did not respond when asked for comment.

Discussing the secret to a good marriage in 2008, she said, “You always have to make time to be together, trust your instincts and force each other to talk. It’s about communication and getting through difficult times together.”

The ‘Mission: Impossible 2’ and ‘Line of Duty’ star was made an OBE in the 2019 New Year Honors for services to film and charity.

Last year, she said she’s correcting her professional name to Thandiwe after being known as Thandie for 30 years because of a misspelling in her first film.
