Channing Tatum and Jessie J are officially back together! After spending a month apart, Tatum and the singer have reunited, an insider confirmed on Wednesday to PEOPLE.
A separate source revealed to E! News that their time apart was what brought them back together. “They took a few weeks apart but ultimately decided they really care about each other,” the source said.
The actor and singer were first romantically linked together in October 2018 and separated just after dating for over a year in December 2019.
“There wasn’t any drama. They just decided to part ways and are still good friends,” a source shared with PEOPLE previously about their split. Another source revealed that Tatum and Jessie’s split was friendly, and their reason for breaking up was due to distance and different priorities.
“Channing and Jessie have different priorities and focuses that don’t really align,” the source said. “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 twosome was recently spotted together in Los Angeles last week and had not been seen publicly together since October 2019.
Tatum and Jessie were first seen together at a mini-golf date in 2018, just two months after the actor separated from ex-wife Jenna Dewan. Last September, Jessie debuted a new song all about the actor at a very intimate show in Los Angeles.
“Where you go I know I want to follow / Let’s make a promise on today / Take it slow, baby steps so we don’t know when what comes next / Let’s be still, just stay calm, so we’re not rushing what we are / Pressure on, just have fun / It’s not a race, no need to run / If it’s forever / Let’s just simply be in love,” Jessie sang.
In June 2019, the singer said in an interview with The Times about the pressures of dating in the public eye.
“Chan and I got photographed before our relationship was even a thing and that created such pressure,” she told the publication. “We’ve needed time to get to know each other. We’ve just had our first holiday together, which was wonderful, but that’s all I’m saying.”
