In what might be the most random couple you'll hear shacking up today, Jessie J and Channing Tatum are going steady. Tatum separated from his ex-wife Jenna Dewan in April of this year after almost nine years of marriage; Jessie J was previously dating R&B singer Luke James, which ended back in 2015.
While it's unclear how the couple met in the first place, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the pair briefly met in 2015 at the MTV Movie Awards, when Jessie and Mark Wahlberg awarded Tatum the award for 'Best Comedic Performance' for his role in 'Logan Lucky'.
There have been no official photos of the new couple, but it's probably because Jessie is currently on tour. According to a source, "They've been hanging out a lot lately and he's excited about seeing her. She's on the road, but he is very interested in getting to know her and doesn't mind tagging along. He's making a lot of effort and wants to spend as much time with her as he can. He's having fun with it and seeing where it goes. He's known her for awhile and always thought she was very talented." Well isn't that nice!
Fans have been sharing their views of the news online, and obviously it's laden with Jessie J song lyrics:
Channing Tatum: "does it bother you that i've only been divorced for six months?"

If Jessie J is legit dating Channing Tatum and she doesn’t re-release Who’s Laughing Now then she’s missing one heck of a trick

Fans have also noticed that Jessie looks strangely similar to Tatum's ex-wife:

Since he seems to have a type...does he know that I, too, have dark hair? ðŸ¤”
