Jessie J 'Disappointed' Over Comparisons to Channing Tatum's Ex Jenna Dewan

Jessie J would very much like to be excluded from this narrative. And even more than that, she would like this narrative to end altogether. 

The “Domino” singer took to Instagram on Friday to speak out after recent headlines surfaced comparing her to her boyfriend, Channing Tatum‘s, ex, Jenna Dewan. Though Jenna casually commented on the subject on Instagram earlier this week, Jessie couldn’t help but post a lengthy essay about the lack of positivity in comparing the looks of two women. 

“I rarely, but sometimes see that my name is involved in stories online that I do not agree to. I often ignore them as 99 percent of the time it is something that doesn’t serve any positivity to speak on,” she wrote. “However there is a story I have seen be re-written over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being compared directly to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier.”

“I am so disappointed and embarrassed that my name is even involved. It’s not something I stand for, at all,” continued Jessie, whose relationship with Channing made headlines in early October. He and Jenna announced their split after eight years of marriage in April. Jenna filed for divorce in late October. 

Jessie continued, explaining that she is worried about the impact stories like the one involving her and Jenna would have on young girls. “I am a woman that supports ALL women. I am a woman that loves ALL women and will not stand quietly when the media is teaching young girls to constantly compare one another. Or to pick who they think is prettier,” she wrote. “We are all BEAUTIFUL.” 

Earlier this week, Jenna stayed above fans’ comparison comments, instead replying to one fan, who said she didn’t see the resemblance between the two, and encouraged the actress to “keep doing you.” “Positive vibes all the way,” Jenna responded. 

Channing, meanwhile, has been very “supportive” of Jessie, a source recently told ET

“Channing wants to do nothing but support Jessie J in every way,” the source says. “He has described her as ‘all goodness’ and told his friends she is such ‘a super talent.’ He seems to have become her No. 1 fan. His friends are so happy he has found someone. She is showing the same support to him.”

Jeffrey Tambor Says He's 'Disappointed' in Amazon and 'Transparent' Creator After Exiting Show

Jeffrey Tambor is speaking out. 

Amazon confirmed to ET on Thursday that the actor would not be returning to Transparent after he was accused of sexual harassment by his former assistant, Van Barnes, and his co-star, Trace Lysette. Just hours later, Tambor released a statement to ET, expressing his disappointment in the streaming service and Transparent co-creator Jill Soloway for the decision. 

“I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon’s handling of these false accusations against me. I am even more disappointed in Jill Soloway’s unfair characterization of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates,” Tambor said. “In our four-year history of working together on this incredible show, these accusations have NEVER been revealed or discussed directly with me or anyone at Amazon. Therefore, I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set.”

“As I have consistently stated, I deeply regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone and I will continue to vehemently defend myself.  I also deeply regret that this ground-breaking show, which changed so many lives, is now in jeopardy,” he continued. “That, to me, is the biggest heartbreak.”

In her statement to ET on Thursday, Soloway said, in part, “I have great respect and admiration for Van Barnes and Trace Lysette, whose courage in speaking out about their experience on Transparent is an example of the leadership this moment in our culture requires.”

After the accusations against Tambor arose in November, Amazon initiated an investigation. A couple weeks later, Tambor publicly denied the allegations and told ET in a statement that “playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago.”

“I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue,” he added.
