In recent news, Jessie J lost one of her personal friends and security guards to suicide, however, a few of her fans – and an online media outlet – misconstrued her words to think it was about her relationship with Channing Tatum, whom she recently broke up with.
Reported by E! Online, the outlet claimed Jessie uploaded an Instagram post in which she mourned the loss of her friend, Dave, who also happened to be her security guard. December of 2019 marked the1st year anniversary of his death.
In her post, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter honestly touched on all the people out there who feel alone, urging them to stick around, even if they feel like leaving the earth sometimes. “Talk to someone who can give you professional advice,” the singer urged.

Time. Time is the gift. Time is the fear. Time is the magic. Time is the memories. Time is the change. Time is the pain. Time is the healing. Zoom out. Go somewhere where your world feels and looks small. Gain perspective. Lay in the sea. Walk to the top of a mountain. Drive to view point in a park. Look up at the stars. This isn’t to make you feel like your problems or sadness or the feelings you feel are not valid but to know you are NEVER Alone. Billions of people around the world. Are just trying to smile and mean it. Are actively working out who they are. Are missing someone they have lost. Are feeling worthless. YOU ARE LOVED. We are all trying to love and accept the stories in our lives that make us desperately want to fast forward or rewind time. When all we have is the now. The very moment. With the puzzle pieces of life sometimes put together in the wrong places. They can hurt until tended to. Don’t let past or current trauma define who you are. You can walk away from it. Take the time to put those puzzle pieces in the right place. Tend to YOU. Be vulnerable. Be there for YOU. Be there for people around you and lift each other up. Break the cycle. Be open. Talk. Be there for yourself. Recognise the patterns of behaviour you have that can cause some of the hurt. Look inwards. Look outwards. Walk away from parts of yourself and people or situations that trigger parts of you that are unhealthy. Be honest. Sending LOVE to anyone who feels alone. We need you around. You are stronger than you know, and are capable of finding your happy time again. Talk to someone who can give you professional advice. Honour your pain to be heard by the right ears. It’s your TIME, so take your TIME ❤️ 1-800-273-8255 – National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ✨
As it was noted above, many of her fans and media publications assumed it was about her romance with Channing Tatum, considering she never mentioned Dave’s death in the original post. Although, several of her followers noted that it was, in fact, about Dave.
One IG user wrote that not everything she posts on social media is about Channing Tatum. As it was previously reported, Channing and Jessie broke up back in the middle of December, and a source stated they’re still good friends and remain amicable.
The star also admitted she wasn’t feeling so good around the holiday season, which fans again believed had to do with her split from Channing. Back in October of 2018, it was reported by Us Magazine that Channing and Jessie had started dating following his separation and subsequent divorce with the mother of his child, Jenna Dewan.
The outlet at the time claimed the 39-year-old and 31-year-old had been hanging out for a few months. For instance, sources spotted Channing at one of her concerts in Salt Lake City as well as in Seattle.
The dates in question included their mini-golf date at a course in Seattle, on the 6th of October, Saturday, 2018. He also went to her show on Salt Lake City on the 8th of October, Monday.
