Yes, Jenna Dewan Tatum Really Dated Justin Timberlake
It’s hard to imagine a time before Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum were a unit. Between their epic movie, Step Up, their relationship goals-worthy dance moves, and their adorable daughter Everly, these two come as a package deal. But before Jenna started dating her eventual hubby, she did have another A-list boyfriend.
The World of Dance host appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, and took a fan’s question about a supposed dance off that took place between former couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. While Jenna, who was Timberlake's back-up dancer at the time, says that the dance-off never happened, she did admit to something else: dating Timberlake himself.
“We dated,” she revealed. “Not that long. We were like friends, friends that then dated, and now we’re just really good friends now.”
But don’t you dare call her the rebound after his break-up from Spears. “No, I was not the rebound!” she exclaimed. “Of course he’s sexy. But no, I was not a rebound. We’re still good friends. It’s not as salacious as everyone thinks.”
Can you even imagine a world where Jenna and Channing didn’t get together? And Timberlake didn’t find his true love in Jessica Biel? Watch Jenna dish in the clip at top.
