This is not a drill: Jenna Dewan Tatum once dated Justin Timberlake
Nowadays, Jenna Dewan Tatum is one-half of Hollywood’s cutest couple with husband Channing Tatum, but did you know that Dewan Tatum once dated Justin Timberlake?
Yep, it’s true! Last night, Jenna came clean about dating Justin briefly back in 2002, and the story behind it is absolutely hilarious. Jenna was a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and she revealed she dated Justin after he broke up with Britney Spears. But Jenna was quick to point out she was not a rebound chick, and that it’s not as “salacious” as everyone makes it seem.
At the time, Jenna was a backup dancer for everyone from Janet Jackson to, yes…Justin himself, and she explained their brief romance.
Jenna assured everyone that things were not as crazy as the media would like us to believe and she was definitely not a rebound after Britney.
A caller also asked Jenna about the infamous club dance-off that reportedly happened between recent exes Justin and Britney, which was allegedly fueled by Justin’s new romance with Jenna. But according to Jenna, the dance-off never happened, and was merely a tabloid rumor.
And there you have it, folks.
