Jessie J's rollercoaster love life from secret dates with A-list men to bitter splits and her bisexual 'phase'

The pop star, 30, dated women, famous men and then offended the LGBT community by claiming her bisexuality was “just a phase”.

US reports claimed last night that Brit singer Jessie – real name Jessica Ellen Cornish – is dating A-list star Channing after the pair were spotted on a mini golf date in LA.

The new couple were spotted on the date by someone who worked at the venue, and Channing has been seen watching her concert in Seattle. He announced his split from wife Jenna Dewan in April.

But before she hooked up with Channing, Jessie’s love life had more ups and downs than her vocal warn ups.

When Jessie rose to fame in 2011, she proudly declared she was bisexual, saying: “I’ve been with guys and I’ve been with girls. And I kind of think it’s about the person not the genitals.

But in April 2014, she claimed that she “only dated men” and “wanted to find myself a husband”.

After saying she no longer identified as bisexual in an interview – adding "I want to stop talking about it completely now and find myself a husband” – she took to Twitter to say she was "increasingly frustrated with still feeling like [my sexuality] was defining me as an artist".

"I am evolving into the woman I want to be forever, wanting a husband and kids one day and dreaming up my future just like everyone else," she wrote, "[but people] want me to be someone I'm not."

She later said she was dating a woman at the time of the interview and that’s why she talked about being bisexual.

After a backlash from the LGBT community, she clarified: “For me, it was a phase. But I'm not saying bisexuality is a phase for everybody."

She added: “I never lied about my sexuality. I said almost 5 years ago now.

"I have dated girls and boys. Quote me! Which I had! Am I denying that…? No!

“I was young and I experimented! Who hasn't?

"Not with just this topic, but anything! It's part of life! No lies there."

She was later revealed to be dating US R&B singer Luke James, before splitting with him a year later amid claims she was worried he was using her to raise his profile.

The star has also been linked to rapper Tinie Tempah, with The Sun revealing they went on a series of secret dates in 2012.

The pair dated on and off for months before she split from him – and his management company, Disturbing London, who had signed her up.

The singer has also become close to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden.

They formed a bond while filming The Voice in Australia all the way back in 2015.

However, their relationship has always been strictly platonic – Benji is happily married to Hollywood star Cameron Diaz.
