Jenna Dewan, 37, is dating a Broadway star named Steve Kazee, 43

Over the weekend we heard that Jenna Dewan was spotted out with her new boyfriend at the Casamigos Halloween party. There weren’t any photos, but an “onlooker” told US Magazine that she was dancing with him, that they were kissing, and that “he’s super handsome.” It was one of those cheesy pre-rollout articles, similar to what we heard about Jennifer Garner’s new boyfriend before US gave her the cover for revealing his identity. It also came a day after Jenna filed for divorce from Channing Tatum, which we knew was coming anyway. Well US has identified Jenna’s boyfriend and he’s a 43 year-old Broadway star and Tony winner named Steve Kazee. A friend named Eddie Dallen posted a photo with Jenna and Steve from the Haunted Hayride on Monday. E! has some more quotes about their relationship and a “things you didn’t know about” for him. I didn’t realize he played Gus on Shameless! He was the musician whom Fiona married for a minute.

As a source explains, “They have been dating for a few months. She was introduced to him by mutual friends and they hit it off right away. Jenna really likes him and is very happy. She has completely moved on from her marriage and is happy to have met someone new. Steve treats her very well and is doing everything right. She’s hopeful about the future, but not getting too far ahead of herself.”

The eyewitness also told E! News that Dewan and Kazee were totally open about their PDA at the Casamigos party. “They definitely seemed like they were dating and left the party holding hands. They were kissing in the courtyard before they exited,” the insider shared.

On Monday night, the new couple attended Shark Tank alum Melissa Carbone’s Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. An insider told E! News, “Jenna Dewan was at the Haunted Hayride last night with three friends including Steve Kazee. She was super nice and the group had a blast.”

The insider revealed Dewan and Kazee “were super cute together. They were all cuddly all night and were holding hands throughout the ride.

Here’s the photo of them with a group of friends at the Haunted Hayride. Steve is so cute!

I like that Jenna is dating someone in her industry who isn’t massively famous and who will presumably treat her well. That’s kind of the choice Channing made with Jesse J too, a musician and performer who knows what the lifestyle is like. Both Jenna and Channing are serial monogamists and I bet they’ll be with their new partners for a while. As Corey mentioned in her last story on them, it’s nice to see a divorcing couple coparenting well too. I bet that things are a little tricky behind the scenes and that we’re not hearing about it however. The fact that Jenna is making sure to roll this new one out to the press kind of suggests that. Plus Channing keeps getting headlines for his relationship with Jesse J. There’s a little competition there I think.

    OMG the boxing photo. Get it, girl.

  2. Ninks says:

    Cute, but I wouldn’t call him super handsome. That seems a bit of an exaggeration.

  3. Andrea says:

    My first thought was he’s not good looking, but then i scrolled down and saw the sweaty photo..he’s hot.

    • Maylee says:

      Same. The goofy smile threw me and I thought “he’s cute”. Then did a google image search and GOOD LORD. The 6’2″ height, hairy legs and smoldering look UMMMMM GOOD MORNING!!! lol

      • Lolamd says:

        At first i thought yah cute. I did a google search as well because I am just procrastinating at work. OMG he is hot. Good for you Jenna!

  4. Jessica says:

    Channing is basically dating a woman who looks pretty similar to his ex wife although i think his wife is prettier). It always freaks me out when someone dates someone who looks very similar to their most recent ex, makes me think they haven’t properly moved on.
    His ex wife at least didn’t do that.

    • Elaine says:

      I was just going to say that when I read he’s dating Jessie j! It’s definitely creepy to me, although Jenna is much prettier

  5. CK says:

    2 things that I learned from this. 1. Steve Kazee is straight (or atleast Bi) 2. Steve Kazee dated Megan Hilty for years. I’ve had more of a thing for Kazee for years than I’ve ever had for Tatum tbh.

  6. terra says:

    Steve Kazee is an adorable cinnamon roll of a man! I’ve been fond of him for years. The Broadway community adores him as much as I do. Talented, funny, and humble. All good things. Dating him makes Jenna a lot more interesting to me, I must say.

  7. Olive says:

    upgrade from potato-faced channing for sure.

  8. VeronicaLodge says:

    He looks a lot like my boyfriend. So, Jenna, get it, girl!

    • Maylee says:

      ooo nice!! VeronicaLodge, get it too girl!! <3

    • tinamarie says:

      I LOVED him on Shameless. He was my favorite Fiona guy. My youngest son and I argue about this and he said of course he’s your favorite Jason (fiance) looks just like him mom lol.
      I love the beard and the whole package. I was totally excited when I saw this online last night.

  9. O’Angie says:

    Loved him in Once! We met him afterwards and he was a total sweetheart. And gorgeous! When he won the Tony that year I was thrilled!

  10. girl_ninja says:

    I remember that he lived with Michelle Beadle of ESPN.

    • BB says:

      Megan Hilty and Michelle Beadle have a similar look. Jenna not so much. Megan and Jenna are both pretty short though.

  11. Chelsey says:

    Mm Jenna, you get it, girl! He is so hot. Omg all that sex in Shameless? Phew! Yes, please! He is so much more attractive to me than Channing.

  12. Amy says:

    He was sooooo cute and sexy as Gus on Shameless. Dayum!

  13. C-Shell says:

    Although I’ve never met him, he’s actually distantly related through my first cousins (also Kazee’s) who were born and raised in Ashland, KY, as well, and many still live there. He’s a cutie pie and such a talented singer. Jenna did good here.

  14. Meg says:

    He looks old compared to her

  15. Abby says:

    Strange… the same day this story and the story about her filing for divorce came out, Channing posted instragm videos of him and Jenna trick or treating with Everly.

  16. Yelena says:

    He’s not hot IMO. In that Jenna is MUCH hotter than him, Channing was hotter than this guy, but at least he treats her well (I hope!)
