From costars to a couple!

Actors Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum began sparking relationship rumors in 2021, and while the duo themselves haven't given their relationship status an official title, it's very clear that they are enjoying their time together.

The two both voiced roles in The Lego Batman Movie in 2017. During that time, they were in separate relationships. Tatum wed his Step Up costar, Jenna Dewan, in 2009, and the couple welcomed their daughter, Everly, in 2013 before finalizing their divorce in 2019. Kravitz, daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, married actor Karl Glusman in 2019, but the couple split 18 months later.

Speculation that the actress ⁠— who plays Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman ⁠— is dating the Magic Mike actor began when she cast him in her upcoming film, Pussy Island, during early summer 2021.

The pair was soon spotted in hand-in-hand strolls in New York City, leaving the Met Gala together and sporting a couple's costume for Halloween.

In 2022, the couple began speaking about each other in interviews, and Tatum attended the New York City premiere of The Batman alongside Kravitz's stepfather Jason Momoa to support Kravitz.

From N.Y.C. outings to movie premieres, here's everything you need to know about Zöe Kravitz and Channing Tatum's relationship.
