John McEnroe was contacted regarding Tatum's book and sent this statement: "[I] continue to be very disappointed in Tatum's interpretation of my life and the lives of our children. I would hope that after all these years she would see things more accurately and that she would share my concern for the welfare of our children."
Tatum says that although her marriage to tennis superstar John McEnroe came to an end, they do continue to stay in touch for the children—however difficult it may be at times.
"We're divorced 10 years and it's still a long story because we're still deep into a psychic drama, he and I," Tatum says. "It's a very difficult communication, through our kids, you know, and God bless how well they've turned out."
