Newly Single Channing Tatum Steps Out for the First Time Since Split from Jessie J
The actor, 39, was seen the day after Christmas catching a flight out of the airport in Los Angeles. He sported a white shirt and San Francisco Giants hat as he put on a black jacket while on the move.
One day later, ex Jessie J, 31, shared a cryptic post on her Instagram Story about experiencing some “delayed emotions.”
“Delayed emotions are…well…not so fun,” she wrote in incredibly small font on top of a dark background.
A source previously told PEOPLE the “timing was off” for Tatum and Jessie J’s relationship, although the two did try to make it work.
“He has a lot on his plate right now and wants to be the best dad possible which means he needs to be around when he isn’t traveling for his own work,” said the source, adding that the split “came at a good time” for them.
They “made the most of it,” the source noted of their relationship.
Another insider echoed that distance and priorities came between the pair.
“Channing and Jessie have different priorities and focuses that don’t really align,” the insider said. “They had a fun relationship, but it just didn’t work out. Channing needs to be in L.A. a lot so he can spend time with Everly. Jessie prefers England. They are still friendly though.”
The pair were first linked in October 2018.
After months of dating, the couple took their romance public in March when they were pictured together for the first time walking hand-in-hand in London.
