According to In Touch magazine (via the NY Post), rapper Common and tennis superstar Serena Williams have gone their separate ways after two years.

I'm surprised their relationship lasted as long as it did after rumors floated around the industry about their loud fights sparked by her insecurities.

Thank God no children came out of this union.

Could there be off-court drama for Serena Williams? According to In Touch magazine, Williams and rapper/actor Common have split after two years of courtship. The celeb weekly quotes a source saying the two "just grew apart." They appeared together at the April premiere of the romantic comedy "Date Night" in New York, but Common attended the May 4 premiere of his new movie, "Just Wright," with his mother. A rep for Williams had no comment, and reps for Common didn't get back to us. Source


It didn't help matters that rumor had it Erykah and Common couldn't keep their hands off each other at a concert in Miami back in March.


Now that Serena is out of the picture, all of this can be yours If you play your cards right ladies!

    Erykah looks better than Serena so her insecurities were well founded.

    Empress Kelly's song comes to mind:

    "Consider this a round trip

    You can go away now, but you gonna return

    consider this a round trip

    You can go away now, but you gonna return

    Return to me

    Once I put that on him

    Put that, put that, put that on him."

    He'll be back, he can't get enough of Serena's bubble... :coffee:

    I'm just going to say it...Serena should have had insecurities dealing with Common...no offensive but Common was way to fine to ve dealing with someone with a more masculine body and face then himself...I really didnt see them working since Common is so conscience and Serena doesnt seem to be on that level. But Common should definitely swing my way!

    I agree. The Williams sisters have improved their looks but they're still not that attractive looking IMO. I've learned not to be fooled by the conscious types. They talk a good game but at the end of the day, they're like any other man.

    @Man, Serena has dated White men before, so it wouldn't be shocking if the next guy is White.

  • CivilEngineer

    @mean...I've clearly been on my best behavior lately. I just want her to find somebody that fits her like a glove. Common was like a SMALL on an EXTRA LARGE hand...

    He and Serena never looked good a a couple to me anyway. I just didn't get them. She is just so unattractive to me. He looks good with Eryka, also he looked good with Taraji Henson.

    On a positive note, I hope Serena find someone right for her who will love her.

  • fancyfacefree

    What? Serena is insecure? She could have fooled me by the way she likes to show off her B***K Ass all the time. Don’t get mad at me SR readers Im black also. I just get tired of seeing Serena ass shots all the time. B**** cover up once in a while.

  • KrayZKat

    @Fancy - check the above picture. She looks covered up to me. When ice skaters compete on the rink, they also show their behinds to. You know those little tutus they wear? However, I wonder why no one complains about that. I'm happy that Serena and Venus have changed the face of tennis the way they have. I'm not throwing shade because everyone has their opinions. I'm just stating mine too.

  • H.B.I.C

    When it comes to Common sense (pun intended) Erykah Badu ain't got ish on Serena Williams. Because unlike her Serena has enough sense not to be just another Black woman spitting out babies for every Tyrone, Jamal and Malik that sniffs her tail. If Serena has insecurities it has nothing to do with semen catcher Badu.

    Common is a beautiful brother he's like a work of art that should be admired. Too bad breeding Badu played herself by claiming celibacy while with common but raw dawging w/ some has been rapper. Common should thank God everyday he dodged the trainwreck known as Erykah Badu
