In October 2018, rumors about the two were swirling all over the place. Things started out pretty easy it seems, with a source telling Us Weekly, “It’s new, casual and they’re having fun together.”
Another source told People, "It's very new."
Clearly, they were making a huge effort not to make a big deal out of the relationship, as a third source told Entertainment Tonight, "Channing and Jessie's relationship is very new. They truly just hit it off. It's only been six months since Channing and Jenna separated.... Channing really likes Jessie."
