Too soon? Channing Tatum and singer Jessie J were spotted playing mini golf at a local course in Seattle on Oct. 6, six months after he and wife Jenna Dewan, 37, announced their shocking split. “It’s still early days, but Channing is smitten with Jessie, and they’re trying to spend as much time together as possible,” says a source who spoke to Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now.
The Step Up stud, 38, recently attended the 30-year-old pop star’s concerts in Seattle and Salt Lake City. It’s evident they’re into each other and are trying to make it work despite their busy schedules. “Channing loves Jessie’s outgoing personality. She knows just how to make him laugh and has helped him take his mind off Jenna,” added the insider. These two prove opposites really do attract.
Channing seems to be over the moon with Jessie and we’re so here for it. Though this pair came to a surprise to many, especially after his nine year marriage to Jenna, it’s good to see Channing move on and be happy! There’s no word on who Jenna can possibly be seeing, but she’s reportedly going on casual dates. The ex couple share a five-year-old daughter, Everly, and began dating other people just five months after they announced their breakup back in April.
Their split seemed amicable considering they “lovingly chose to separate as a couple” and agreed to be there for their daughter as “loving dedicated parents.”
As for Jessie and Channing, the two stars have known each other for a while; Channing has always thought “she was very talented,” according to a source who spoke to E! News. They seem to be keeping their relationship low-key and are making the best of their time together. We’re excited to see where this goes!
