Jenna Dewan Tatum Confirms She Dated Justin Timberlake

Jenna Dewan Tatum has confirmed she once dated Justin Timberlake.

The actress, who has been married to Channing Tatum since 2009, was asked about her relationship with the pop star during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

“We dated, yeah,” said Dewan Tatum, who was a back-up dancer for Timberlake in 2002.

“Not that long. We were like friends that then dated.”

She added: “He’s sexy, of course he’s sexy.”

Dewan Tatum insisted she wasn’t Timberlake’s rebound from Britney Spears. “No, I was not the rebound! I was very clear not to be,” she said.

According to the TV movie Britney Ever After, Timberlake and Spears once had a dance battle over Dewan Tatum — something that “never happened,” according to Dewan Tatum.

“It was in tabloids and everyone thought that this happened and I really wish I could say that happened because it would be the coolest story in the world,” she said. “It would be so awesome, but no, it never happened.

“Not that I saw.”
