Channing Tatum: People's next 'Sexiest Man Alive?'

has the news been leaked by a website?

Is Channing Tatum going to be named People's "Sexiest Man Alive" next week? The website Gossip Cop sure seems to think so.

Each year, People magazine announces its "Sexiest Man Alive" issue to great fanfare. However, has that thunder been diminished by a secret source selling out the reveal to the online site Gossip Cop?

In a report on Monday, the site claimed Magic Mike star Channing Tatum will be announced as this year's cover boy for the magazine. The announcement is reportedly going to happen on Nov. 14.

People is probably not too pleased with the leaked information, if it is true, as it has managed to keep its yearly picks under wraps until they announce it on the morning shows.

Gossip Cop did reach out to the magazine for comment. People naturally told them, “We never comment on who the "Sexiest Man Alive" is until the issue is revealed.”

The Vow star is a natural fit for the magazine's annual hot man issue since other leading men have included last year's winner Bradley Cooper, 2010's Ryan Reynolds, and two-time cover boy George Clooney. Tatum has been in their special edition issue before, but he has never been the top winner.

While no one from the actor's nor People's camps are confirming this rumor, Gossip Cop is a site that is known for disclosing the truth about celebrity gossip. The site was founded by Michael Lewittes and ABC's Good Morning America legal analyst Dan Abrams in 2009 to debunk some of the wild rumors that go around in Hollywood.

Tatum will next be seen on the big screen in G.I. Joe: Retaliation reprising his role as Captain Duke Hauser in 2013.
