Jenna Dewan Sets the Record Straight on Crazy Justin Timberlake & Britney Spears Rumor
On Sunday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” actress Jenna Dewan confirmed that she dated Justin Timberlake back in the day!
Dewan told Cohen, "We dated, yeah.” When Cohen pressed for more details, she revealed they dated for “not that long. We were like friends that then dated.”
Dewan was rumored to be dating Timberlake after his 2002 breakup from Britney Spears. She shared about the “sexy” singer, "I was dancing with him after the breakup. Like, during-after the breakup. No, I was not the rebound!”
Jenna also set the record straight on Justin and Britney's reported dance-off, which was featured in Lifetime's unauthorized biopic “Britney Ever After.” She commented, "Okay, so this dance-off situation — it never happened, people! No! It was in tabloids and everyone thought this happened. I really wish I could say that happened, because that would be the coolest story in the world! It would be so awesome! I wish I could say that, but no, it never happened — not that I saw.”
Dewan is now married to Channing Tatum, her “Step Up” co-star. Justin wed Jessica Biel in 2012.
