Jenna Dewan-Tatum Admits She Dated Justin Timberlake After His Split From Britney Spears

By
Jenna Dewan-Tatum has a history with Justin Timberlake, but it's not as "salacious" as some fans may think.
On Sunday's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the 36-year-old actress recalled what it was like being one of Timberlake's backup dancers "during and after" his breakup from Britney Spears, and if there was actually a dance-off between the pop stars, which was portrayed in Lifetime's unauthorized Britney Spears biopic, Britney Ever After.
"So, this dance-off situation, it never happened, people! No! It was in tabloids and everyone thought this happened," Dewan-Tatum said, setting the record straight. "I wish I could say that, but no, it never happened -- not that I saw."
  The Step Up star further noted that being around Timberlake during the "whole drama" of his breakup from Spears was the "craziest, wildest thing."
She also admitted to dating the triple-threat star when Cohen asked if the two ever had a "moment."
"We dated, not that long," Dewan-Tatum sheepishly confessed. "We were like friends ...that dated."
When asked if she was Timberlake's rebound after Spears, Dewan-Tatum exclaimed, "I was not the rebound! I was very clear not to be [that]."
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess was also a guest on Sunday's WWHL and jokingly inquired as to whether Dewan-Tatum was really the one responsible for bringing sexy back when she was with Timberlake. "He's sexy. What if I was like, 'No, he's not sexy at all?' Of course he's sexy," she said of the "Sexy Back" singer. "We're still very good friends."
A decade later, Timberlake is coming up on his five-year wedding anniversary with Jessica Biel, while Dewan-Tatum has been married to Channing Tatum for almost eight years. Last month, the Tatums couldn't help but gush over one another when ET asked about their sexiest times of day. Check out their adorable answers:
