Earlier this month, Channing Tatum split from his girlfriend of one-year, British singer Jessie J. According to reports, the break up was due to distance – Tatum lives in Los Angeles where his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, and daughter, Everly, are based, while Jessie J is in London – and the two are still on good terms.
But following the announcement, it looks like the Hollywood actor is ready to start seeing people again after he was spotted on the celebrity-filled dating app, Raya.
Us Weekly report that multiple sources have come across the Magic Mike star’s profile on the app and that his bio jokes about his former job as a stripper before he started acting. It reads: “And yes, I used to be a stripper. Sorry,” with a shrug emoji, while his profile song is reportedly ‘Brown Sugar’ by D’Angelo. It has to be said: The man has game.
As for Raya, it’s been around for a few years and celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Ben Affleck, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato, Diplo and Cody Simpson are rumoured to have been spotted on there since its launch in 2015.
But before you rush off to the app store, Raya isn’t as easy to join as Tinder, Bumble or Hinge.
The app markets itself as being a place where “like-minded people can have an easy, accessible, and comfortable platform on which to connect” and, therefore, the application process is strict.
Applicants are “reviewed by an anonymous global committee” and you are unlikely to be accepted into the fold if you weren’t recommended by another user. “While there isn’t a specific set of qualifications for applications, we will rarely, if ever, consider an applicant who wasn’t referred by a current member of the Raya community,” the guidelines read.
Channing, throw us a bone?
