Channing Tatum Is Dating Jessie J After Jenna Dewan Split

It looks like everybody's favourite Channing is back in the game. That's right, Magic Mike is back on his bike.

Thirty-eight-year-old heartthrob Channing Tatum has been dating British singer Jessie J for several months, according to US Weekly. A source told the publication that Tatum had been seen attending several of her concerts in Seattle and Salt Lake City. There were also claims on social media last week that the pair were seen enjoying a game of mini golf together.

They may seem an unlikely couple on the surface, however, once you've looked at a picture of Jessie J and realised it is actually a picture of his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, then it quickly starts to seem less implausible.

Here's a few things the women have in common:

• They both tend to sport nigh on identical shoulder length dark hair dos
• Their faces generally look pretty much the same
• Both of their names start with the letter 'J'
• They look the same
• Both of their names have the second letter 'e'
• They both make money dancing around (one in films, one on stage)
• They look the same
• They both know what it feels like to be held in Tatum's strong arms (possibly)

Tatum and the 37-year-old Step Up actress were married for nine years and have a daughter, Everly, together, but the couple issued a joint statement in April announcing their decision to split.

A section of the statement on Instagram read: "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.

"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 realising 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."

It is unclear at this stage how Tatum and Jessie J, real name Jessica Ellen Cornish, would have become reacquainted, after the singer presented Tatum with the Best Comedic Performance at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards for his role in 22 Jump Street.

Jessie J is currently on a world tour, after releasing her fourth album, R.O.S.E., in May.

If indeed she is seeing Tatum, then it undoubtedly ain't about the, uh, cha ching cha ching, and it ain't about the, yeah, b-bling b-bling, that's for sure... It's more likely about his chiselled abdomen and hot moves.
