Channing Tatum reportedly dating British singer Jessie J, who looks a lot like his ex-wife Jenna Dewan
Tatum and Dewan, who share a 5-year-old daughter named Everly, announced their split on social media in April after nearly nine years of marriage
Channing Tatum is back in the dating game and is apparently seeing British singer Jessie James, popularly known as Jessie J, following his split from his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, reports said. According to sources at Us Weekly, the couple have been dating each other for a couple months now.
The source also mentioned that Tatum had been spotted multiple times at the 'Domino' singer’s recent concerts in Seattle and Salt Lake City. As per an eyewitness, the 'Magic Mike' star and the singer played mini golf together at a local course in Seattle on Saturday, October 6. "Jessie j and Channing Tatum came in to play a round," he wrote on social media.
And most recently, Tatum was spotted at Jessie’s show in Salt Lake City on Monday, October 8. A second source told the media outlet that “it’s new, casual and they’re having fun together.”
And it seems that Tatum has a type — for his rumored girlfriend bears a strong resemblance with his ex-wife, Dewan.
Although it still isn't clear as to where the couple first met, but fans can recall that the former 'Voice UK' judge and Mark Wahlberg presented the 'Logan Lucky' actor with the award for Best Comedic Performance at the MTV Movie Awards in 2015. At the time, James and Tatum also shared a brief hug on stage as he accepted the golden popcorn trophy.
It was in April this year that Tatum and Dewan, who share 5-year-old daughter Everly, announced their split on social media after nearly nine years of marriage. “We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together,” their joint statement read.
“Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.”
And even though Tatum has always stayed mum about their separation, Dewan, in a recent interview, called it a “positive thing”, while looking back at the decision. “It’s been a journey, and it’s been a transformation of myself — my needs and wants as a woman,” 'The Resident' actress told Women Health Magazine.
“I think everyone wants to hold on to what’s in front of them, but when you open your mind, saying, ‘I want what’s best for myself and my daughter,’ you have to be OK with however that looks.” She added: “It’s OK for a relationship to change into a new form that is actually better for both people involved, and I think that’s maybe what shocked everyone so much — that it can be a positive thing. That was ultimately what happened with us.”
