Channing Tatum & Jessie J broke up after a year, they’re ‘still good friends’

When Channing Tatum and Jessie J first got together last year, I thought they were sort of an odd couple. But as I got used to them together, it made more sense. In some ways, Jessie even reminds me a bit of Jenna Dewan (brunettes with similar faces, great dancers), so it even felt like Channing just has a “type” and that was sort of cute. But this relationship with Jessie was his first major one since his split with Jenna, and I’m not sure he was ready for anything super-serious. And now Channing and Jessie are over.

Channing Tatum is back on the market. The Magic Mike star and Jessie J have called it quits, multiple sources tell Us Weekly exclusively.

“Channing Tatum and Jessie J broke up about a month ago,” one source reveals. “They are still really close and still good friends.”

Us Weekly broke the story, but People Magazine’s sources had more information:

Channing Tatum and singer Jessie J have split, PEOPLE confirms. The couple called it quits just over a year after they were first linked together in October 2018. Tatum, 39, and Jessie, 31, last stepped out publicly in October, when Jessie shared several shots of their outing.

“There wasn’t any drama. They just decided to part ways and are still good friends,” a source tells PEOPLE of their split.

Another source echoes the Tatum and Jessie’s friendly split, with distance and different priorities coming in between them.

“Channing and Jessie have different priorities and focuses that don’t really align,” the source says. “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. They are still friendly though.”

The relationship happened when Channing had been spending a lot of time in England, filming various movies. But that’s the actor’s life – some years, you’ll spend so many months in one location, and then the next year, you’re back in LA. I bet that was the main thing, and they couldn’t keep a long distance thing going, or they just didn’t want to keep it going. Oh well. It will be interesting to see who Channing dates next. I feel like Channing will “pull a Pratt” and go for a woman who just wants to be a “wife and mother” and doesn’t have a competing career. Who will be Channing’s Katherine Schwarzenegger?

    Jessie lives in LA though. She moved to the US in 2014. So it wasnt a long distance relationship. But she is and was touring a lot and Channing has been working as well. Couple that with the fact that yeah after a divorce he may not have wanted anything super serious I think those are the likely causes of the split.

  2. Lindy says:

    I honestly cannot understand finding him the tiniest bit attractive in any way. That’s all I got.

  3. Cindy says:

    … They were together?

    That’s funny. I feel like these two were everywhere at the start of the decade and now I have no idea what projects they’ve done in the last 2 years.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Well Jessie released her best album to date in those last two years, went on two world tours and competed in the International singing competition “Singer” which pits professional singers against each other in a world wide competition. She won.

    I have never understood his appeal.

  5. Rando says:

    He’s apparently on Raya and very active over the last few weeks.

  6. Lisa says:

    Yeah doubt Channing was looking for anything super serious after his divorce and that coupled with their careers and they had a nice run but things ran their natural course.

  7. elttil says:

    does no one else feel like he’s gonna end up dating a man at some point?

  8. Erica says:

    Wasn’t the original story that he wanted more kids and Jenna wanted to focus on her career? And yet Jenna is the one who found another serious relationship and is having another child. Paired with her recent interview where she made some vague comments about the end of their relationship, I’m starting to think he’s just not a one-woman kind of man.

  9. Jadedone says:

    My guess is he will end up with a woman with dark hair and light eyes. The man has a type

    Anytime these sort of stories come out…

    “I just don’t find him attractive.”
    “I just don’t get what people see in him.”

    People have different tastes. Remember a whole mess of you were about that odd looking Cumberbatch life for a while there.

    • Notsoanonymous says:

      Here to agree. Different people like different things. Your last sentence is gold though.

    • A.Key says:

      Well said.
      Coincidentally, I like both Cumberbatch and Tatum :D
      I honestly feel everyone has something charming of their own. It’s not about physical symmetry or genetic makeup. It’s the personality they project and how you perceive them. You can’t judge people based on photographs.

    I follow them both on Instagram, and I’ve been wondering if they’d broke up for a while now. She’s incredibly talented, and also crazy busy. I don’t know what he’s working on these days – he is exercising a lot all of a sudden and posting about it. Maybe it’s for a movie. He was such a hot commodity for a while. Maybe it was the package Dewan-Tatum family deal?

    Jenna seems super happy and her guy seems really kind and head over heels for her. And she’s having success professionally as well.

    He was my favorite actor for a while. I think he’s attractive, he’s always reminded me of my college boyfriend. But definitely in a meathead way.

    Awww, I liked him with Jenna Dewan. Oh well …

  13. Courtney says:

    Why doesn’t he have Chris Pratt’s career? He kinda went away after the divorce.

  14. Slacker says:

    If he wanted a baby momma and wife Jenna seems like she already fits. Seems like that’s what she wanted and he didn’t and it broke them up
