Common dishes on ‘wonderful’ relationship with Tiffany Haddish
'She’s a really incredible human being, and the more I get to know her, I see how dynamic she is.'
Less than a week after reports claiming Common and Tiffany Haddish called it quits, the rapper gushed about his relationship with the comedian during his guest appearance on SiriusXM’s “The Karen Hunter Show.”
Common has shut down the breakup rumors, making clear that he and the Girls Trip star are “doing wonderful.”
“She’s a really incredible human being, and the more I get to know her, I just see how dynamic she is as a person. How intelligent, how selfless she is, how she stands up in Hollywood for black women. I’m learning. You know what I mean? She takes it like the law,” he explained to Hunter.
The actor and Grammy-winning performer noted that Haddish possesses the type of “courage and rawness that we’ve been looking for – the equality that we talk about,” he said.
“Especially within – any area of life – but then the Hollywood structure, sometimes you have to shake them up and say ‘hey, y’all, this is what it has to be,’” he continued. “She’s also fun. She’s fun. And ultimately, Karen, Tiffany has a good heart at the end of the day.”
The couple sparked rumors of a breakup recently when Common briefly unfollowed Haddish on social media. In a recent interview, however, she set the record straight about their relationship.
“I feel like it’s gonna work,” Haddish shared with Extra‘s Rachel Lindsay. “I haven’t felt like this about a relationship ever.”
Common and Haddish also dispelled breakup rumors via social media after saying “I love you” on Instagram Live.
In July, Haddish appeared on the “Wild Ride! With Steve-O” podcast and said Common “is hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in.”
She also revealed that she lost 20 pounds since hooking up with the Chicago native. “I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it,” she shared.
“I’m just way happier and it’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. It seems like he does anyways. And I love it. I love him.”
