Channing Tatum and Jessie J have reportedly split after a year of dating.

The 39-year-old actor had been romancing the singer since October 2018 when they went public, but they’ve now reportedly called time on their relationship.

A source has told US Weekly there was nothing dramatic about the split, and claims the pair remain good friends.

“Channing and Jessie broke up about a month ago. They are still really close and still good friends,” they told the publication.

At the time of writing neither Channing nor Jessie, 31, have commented on the rumours, however photos of Channing appear to have been removed from Jessie’s Instagram account.

There had been chatter the pair had called time on their relationship earlier this month, with Channing adding further fuel to speculations when he joked about accepting a marriage proposal during the Australian launch of Magic Mike Live in Melbourne.

When a woman called out from the crowd “Marry me Channing!” his response was, “I’m free, let’s do it, I’m free.”

The news of the split comes just a few months after Jessie played a new song for her fans which was dedicated to the Magic Mike star.

“Where you go I know I want to follow, let's make a promise today,” the lyrics were.

“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 for ever, let's just simply be in love.”

Jessie and Channing kept their love life private, but Channing did post a sweet happy birthday message back in March, where he thanked Jessie for “just being you”.

The couple got together after Channing and his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan announced they were divorcing at the start of 2018 after nine years of marriage and a daughter, six-year-old Everly. Jenna went on to date Broadway star Steve Kazee since October 2018, and the couple are expecting their first child together.

After Channing went public with Jessie last year, she did take to Instagram to hit out at those who were comparing her to Jenna.

She wrote at the time: “There is a story I have seen be re-written over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being compared directly to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier. I am so disappointed and embarrassed that my name is even involved. It's not something I stand for, at all.

“I am a woman that supports ALL women. I am a woman that loves ALL women and will not stand quietly when the media is teaching young girls to constantly compare one another. Or to pick who they think is prettier. We are all BEAUTIFUL.”

Channing was in Australia this month announcing Magic Mike Live was coming to Australia in 2020.

In May next year, Australian fans will be able to get up close and personal with the Magic Mike Live dancers, as they bring the highly popular show to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in a luxurious custom-made super tent - The Arcadia - built especially for Australian audiences.

“We have built one of the sickest freestanding tents,” Channing said at the Melbourne launch event.

“I've never dreamed of having a circus tent full of strippers but it's happening.”
