Jenna Dewan Tatum opens up to 'Hollywood Medium' about grandfather's 'tragic death'

Jenna Dewan Tatum is getting closure about the death of her beloved grandfather, thanks to celebrity medium Tyler Henry.

The 36-year-old actress and dancer received an emotional apology from beyond the grave from her late grandfather Dudley during an episode of "Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry" airing Wednesday.

"He's having me acknowledge that he was not in a coherent state of mind when he passed and he's actually having me acknowledge self-medication," Henry, 21, tells the actress in a sneak peek from the episode. "He's apologizing because he feels like the person he was when he was not self-medicating was very different than the person that he was when he was self-medicating."

Adds Henry, "He may have dealt with a specific addiction problem."

Dewan Tatum explains that her grandfather's "tragic death" occurred after his wife — Dewan Tatum's grandmother — passed away.

Losing his wife left her grandfather "distraught," she says. "The were together for so long, they were inseparable."
