Channing Tatum and Jessie J were truly couple goals. From their low-key beginnings to their hilarious online pranks, many thought the American actor and British musician were the real deal. Or at least, we hoped so.
But it’s been confirmed that the 2 have now decided to go their separate ways after a year of dating. And in spite of the fact sources claim there’s been no drama between the 2, some suspect there’s more to the story – involving Tatum’s ex-wife Jenna Dewan.
Now Jessie J has spoken out.
Born in 1980 in Cullman, Alabama, he’s had an illustrious (and varied) acting career.
He first rose to fame in 2006’s Step Up.
After the popular dance movie, he became known for starring as the romantic lead in a range of slightly sappy films, including 2010’s Dear John.
Tatum is also the star of the G.I. Joe franchise.
He’s played Duke in both The Rise Of The Cobra and Retaliation. Though the films were critically panned, they were hugely commercially successful.
Tatum starred alongside Jonah Hill in action comedy films 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, for which he received critical praise.
Tatum is the star of both Magic Mike and the sequel, Magic Mike XXL – the latter of which he also produced. He claimed to have drawn inspiration for the role from his own time working as a stripper.
He’s funny, kind-hearted and incredibly down to earth – and is never afraid to laugh at himself.
His portrayal of Beyonce on Lip Sync Battle will likely go down in the show’s history. Tatum absolutely nailed it.
Tatum is pretty easy on the eye, too.
In fact, he probably makes one of the most universal appearances on any celebrity crush list.
He’s one of the most universally loved actors of today – and we can absolutely see why!
He met his wife, Jenna Dewan, in 2006, when the pair filmed Step Up together. The couple married in Malibu in 2009.
Tatum and Dewan’s daughter was born in May of 2013 in London, UK.
In April of 2018, Tatum announced on social media that the pair were separating. They divorced six months later.
It seems that the two are still very friendly and enjoy co-parenting their young daughter together.
He first met singer Jessie J in 2015, but the 2 only started dating fairly recently.
Jessie and Tatum started dating in October of 2018, and seem to be very much in love.
Her 2011 single, “Price Tag”, was an international hit, topping the charts in a whopping nineteen different countries.
In “Bang Bang,” Jessie J collaborated with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.
The song ended up going multi-platinum worldwide.
The has a cute, genuine persona which has endeared her to many fans around the world.
And although they tend to keep the majority of their relationship private, they did share the odd cute moment on social media.
Jessie J serenaded Tatum in a super romantic fashion in celebration of the actor’s thirty-ninth birthday on April 26th.
They shared some very cute social media antics. One which will go down in infamy involved the couple’s board game night.
The ever-frustrating (though not necessarily particularly strategic) Jenga, of course!
The way that they chose to do this? By adding another layer of interest to their game, in the form of a cheeky bet. The winner would get to post any photo of their choosing on the loser’s social media accounts.
Well, that was clear – as Jessie J posted this very NSFW picture from her boyfriend’s Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Although many were very, very grateful to Jessie J for posting the undeniably gorgeous pic.
In fact, if anything, it seems that the internet loves him even more! Being super attractive is one thing, but being able to not take yourself too seriously? Now that’s hot.
Because this week, sources confirmed Tatum and J had decided to part ways.
According to UsWeekly, “Channing Tatum and Jessie J broke up about a month ago. They are still really close and still good friends.”
According to People, “Channing and Jessie have different priorities and focuses that don’t really align. They had a fun relationship, but it just didn’t work out. Channing needs to be in LA a lot so he can spend time with Everly. Jessie prefers England.”
It’s also been revealed that Tatum’s ex-wife Jenna Dewan is expecting a new baby with her boo Steve Kazee. Sounds like Tatum’s life is pretty tumultuous at the moment!
She responded to the headlines by posting a very racy Instagram story – adding in the comments that she was “happy.”
Well, we hope she’s not lying!
