What Has Jessie J Said About Chanan Colman?
“Once,” the London native said when asked how many times she’s been in love on an episode of “The Diary of a CEO” podcast in May 2022. “Because I can actually see my life with that person, and I’ve never had that before,” she added.
As Jessie spoke about her only experience with true love in the present tense, some fans interpreted that as a hint that she was referring to the Danish-Israeli pro baller. The songstress also discussed her perspective on moving forward after love ends, potentially nodding to her split from Channing Tatum which was confirmed by In Touch in April 2020.
“I just feel like love is a constant moving experience. And I think that when you meet new people you always want to dumb down what you’ve experienced because you don’t want to make them feel bad. But the truth is all we’re ever doing is going ‘is this love? Do you want to be with me? Are we going to get married? Can we live together? Would you take a bullet for me? Do I really want to meet your parents?” she said in the episode.
Following her and Channing’s breakup after an on-and-off relationship from 2018 to 2020, Jessie moved on with dancer Max Pham Nguyen. The two split after seven months of dating in October 2021. After suffering a tragic miscarriage in November 2021, Jessie was spotted in Los Angeles showing PDA with Chanan.
