Common says he lost his appetite and couldn't eat after breaking up with funk/alternative/soul singer Erykah Badu. The sensitive rapper said he took the break up very hard.

Common and Erykah, 48, dated briefly for several months in the early '2000s before going their separate ways.

Common told People magazine he believed Erykah was the woman to help him overcome his trust issues.

"With Erykah Badu, that was my first love where you're just open and floating," he said. "When we split, I was 27 or 28. I was in a haze, just going through the motions. It was hard to eat. It wasn't her fault, the relationship just didn't go forward."

Common said it took him a minute to get over Erykah. But it wasn't the last time a woman would break his heart.

"I was in another breakup after that that was heavy," he said. "That one honestly is what sent me to therapy."

The 47-year-old rapper has had difficulty maintaining stable relationships with women because he was molested by a male relative of his godmother when he was 9 or 10 years old.

In his new memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word, Common, who was born Lonnie Lynn, opened up about the molestation.

"At some point I felt Brandon's hand on me," he wrote. "I pushed him away. I don't remember saying a whole lot besides 'No, no, no.'" He said that he felt a "deep and sudden shame" after the incident.

Common said he worked through the pain and confusion in intense therapy sessions with former first lady Michelle Obama.

"She has definitely helped talk me through certain moments of relationships. She has given me a lot of wisdom," Common tells Good Morning America's Robin Roberts.

He said one of the nuggets of wisdom Obama told him was to stop looking for that perfect woman because he's not perfect. She told him he should focus on his core values and mark those values off his list when looking for a woman.

"One great thing that she told me was that you're not gonna get anybody that's perfect, because you're not perfect. So understand that there's some things that you will compromise in choosing that partner, but as long as the core values, that person marks off on that list, you're good."

Common said he's "open to a relationship” with a woman again. "I know how to communicate like an adult now," he explained. "I want to be the best partner I can be."

    In Erykah defense she only had one kid at the time they were togeher.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Erykah called him on the phone while she was on tour and dumped him. I bet he was devastated that is SO cold.

  • Yup, I said it

    I believe she put the root on him. You only dated a month and you were that messed up?

  • Sushi

    I have heard that she deals in Black arts...

  • Soon2BWife

    Erykah turned him and Andre 3000 out.

  • KneeSee

    I'm not surprised at all that he couldn't eat. He probably balled up in the fetal position and sucked his thumb, too after Miss Badu.

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    Wow ...Never knew he dated Erykah. Just straight busy listen to music.

  • Topic Influencer

    Common I had you pegged so wrong brother. I thought all this time you were just a womanizer and couldnt find your way in any relationship and was an overall selfish party. No idea about your past abuse and how its impacting you as an adult in your relationships. and much love for speaking out on your abuse. Keep pushing.

  • Renee26

    Erykah be putting roots on nigggas... Have them change to a whole new personality. Walkin around barefoot lighting incense and ish ?

  • Rahab

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    She got kids?

  • TriniHarlem

    He's human so he's not void of feelings. It's extremely annoying how dismissive society is with men and their feelings. Then when he's a jerk parading around how they broke up etc it's OMG he's so insensitive etc ? humans are annoying

Hypnosis and mind control all that stuff is real. I let a PH.D holding Dr hypnotize me once and let me tell,you if he had of told me to go crawl in a dog house and eat Kibble, I would have did it. It scared me so bad, I havent fooled with that mess again. My insurance covered that what you because its is proven effective therapy.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes! I said something similar up top ???

  • Fire & Ice

    Only a MONTH!!! Sounds like roots!

  • Renee26

    I'd be too afraid I won't return from being hypnotized... I do want a psychic reading though

  • Victorious82

    The shade...he’s open to a relationship with a WOMAN. Lol. Was he open to them with men Auntie? Just because some sick man violated his innocence doesn’t men he likes men. Sheesh.

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    Right, no one is hypnotizing me. Just don't do sage, trust me. The reading is ok. Just don't do it too often.

  • Blaque Mahogany

  • NewNew

    And this is why we all need to be slower to judge folks. You just never know what people are going through behind closed doors. I'm so glad he has chosen to get therapy to work through his issues. Such a mature response. Good for him!

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    As All get out, I didn't even laugh till then. My point is I DID NOT know she had a sense of humor.

  • Alextra Ballard

    My money is on Ayesha

    I recently did sage... After my step mom moved out I cleansed my apt for the first time with sage and burned a white candle to rid my space of negative energy. At the time I was still holding onto a guy that I needed to let go. So about a month later I did it again to get rid of his negative energy and clear my memories of him from my mind. I think it worked cause I walked away from him and haven't looked back.

    What bad experience did you have with the sage?

  • Bashi22

    He need a spiritual bath for release and protection. All that sage he’s burning is not enough.

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?

    Pisces love different. When we feel safe, we flow beautifully like a goldfish. When we feel danger or confusion, we shut down or become a shark. The best dating advice I can give a Pisces, take your time, get to TRULY know someone and leave the clipboard for personal goals not people...nobody is perfect..and wise words from Michelle O..not even YOU. This maturity came with age and A LOT of self-reflection.

  • Bashi22

    Sandra they still together having fun ok ??

  • Yup, I said it

    It seems like 50 age where men health has been taking a turn for the worst. I get all the men I love vitamin world mens vitamins and encourage with loss, and regular cardio.

    Hexanbeast ... once they leave more comes to that person .... it's a energectic attachment that can only be broken by healing his sexual energy .... and that can only be done on his own .... some men are unable so they remain in ciphering relationships ... actually they will attract that and he will fall weak for it ... unless he faces his personal healing ... other than that ... a lot of men ..... will continue the cycle ..... of dark codependency ..... that's all it is .... when it boils down to it ..... but with that usually it creates many addictions ..... mostly sexual

    These confirmed bachelors do need some self-reflection and therapy!

    Nowadays these upward bound and successful single black men, swear if they could only meet a woman like “Michelle Obama” they would COMMIT AND MARRY!

    In essence, they meet them all the time because there are legions of them; educated, attractive, self-sufficient, nurturing, smart, funny, and willing to let a real man lead!

    I wonder what was wrong with Serena?

  • Kimberly King

    I'm sure there was nothing wrong with Serena. It was HIM !

  • Kimberly King

    "Go" is my favorite song by Common. His Microsoft commercials are so annoying. Why does the industry always pick him to do commercials talking about a whole bunch of nothing ? Lol Him and Serena were cute together. Really wished my bae would have ran into a black king to wife her up.

  • Calikush

    Common strike me as an emotional, annoying simp! Erykah is just annoying! However...... I do hope Common can heal and continue to get the help he need. I think he just need a regular shmegular woman like a nurse or somethin’, not a woman in the limelight.

  • Yup, I said it

    Ty, yes it took months for his full vison and kidney functions were back normal. The vitamins help with that. Then he was diagnosed with a non cancerous brain tumor and he had that removed last month. Hes a champ and he's learned you gotta take care of your body and mind. You only get 1.

  • Bashi22

    Like he’s gay lol ?

  • Cali

    Me Too, fumbling as well to locate the remote to press MUTE???

  • Bashi22

    He claims he’s a love addict however in real life he’s sex addict.

  • leapyearpisces

    I don't know if this has been discussed in the comments already, but does anyone else feel that Common is telling all of these revelations to lead up to his grand debut of stepping out the closet?

  • Renee

  • Bashi22

    Wow ? I see why he as so much women on his team. They all catered to his needs. However he knows he as a problem Erykah should release him. Lol he wants visit Ghana he said from one of his current PR interview maybe he can find a spiritual healer.

    Hexanbeast don't release .... it don't work like that.... the victim has to release them .... he can find a spiritual healer .... but soul personal healing will always be up to him ...
    A healer can only guide ... enlighten if they are true spiritual healer ... folks will say they can remove attachments etc ... they can assist you through it but personal leg work has to be done

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Mess cause love is not a addiction ... or a obsession .. periodt .... that's an excuse to hide something imo ..... hiding a wound

  • missmiami305

    I know the definition thank you! Bullshit either way and it’s my opinion. Not at peace by far and it has taken on a new meaning. I could care less about the teachings of Khemet. Been there and done that. All these new age hoteps are full of shit and use being woke as a front to masquerade their bullshit. Thank-you next?????.

  • Topic Influencer

    Now Im not even sure if he is gay. I think just damaged and on the sensitive nerd geek side. If that makes any sense.

    There was a picture of him and Serena leaving a hotel, trying not to be seen together, where it was clear they had either done a whole mountain of cocaine or been f*cking all night -- or both.

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    Once again Hotep isn't a person.She was wrong for defending Rkelly but I would never make fun of my ancestors spirituality system. Until the white race explain why fake jesus is name Jesus and there's no J in the Hebrew language,i'll never believe all the bible. No where in the old testament is Jesus name mention.
    They-- the white scholars --wrote the old testament to lead up to his birth. Far as i'm concerned they stole our ancestors sacred text and created a bunch of Harry Potter stories around them. When blk people ruled Egypt,they had the 42 Laws of Maat .

    Thanks!

  • justlooking

    Never got gay vibes from him and he is very down to earth. Too nice probably. He is attracted to strong women, that end up tearing him down. I believe he needs a soft gentle type...Ms. Badu or Angela was neither.

  • justlooking

    Beautiful on the outside. The end.

  • Renee26

    ? just stay away from you huh? ?

  • Slim Goodie

    Yea he need someone soft but as they say, opposites attract.

  • Slim Goodie

    Same thing with Drake and Serena. Now that I am thinking of it, both Drake and Common have obvious emotional baggage. Both are emotional af.

  • Slim Goodie

    I never thought about it.The fact that Erykah and Common were both Pisces. Too much water in that relationship.

  • Slim Goodie

    That's wild and I believe what you're saying.

  • oshh16

    That movie could have been great, had they gone in a more realistic yet funny way of the way men think. Instead it was corny.

  • free

    add serena.

    It's cool when the signs are in harmony with themselves. Our biggest enemy is ourselves. I love meeting other Pisces men..but we must do the work within first. "How you gon' win when you not right within?"-Lauryn Hill

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    well one thing is people can believe or not ....... but this does happen and has happened to many men .....

  • MrsSpice1

    I will always love that song with him and Lauryn Hill, restrospect for life and his song come close! Oh and i looove him on the Chi! That is all?...

  • jwoo250

  • Renee

    You ”Get it”!? The masses do not want to see the facts! Heck, if Satan exists, he has taken a hiatus because he does not even have to work anymore. People give it up quicker than a crack whore on MLK Boulevard of any major city.?????

    I agree, “obvious emotional baggage!”

    See, we always hear or talk about why somebody’s a baby mama or can’t keep a man, or why some black women are single, but little is said about this type or relationship obstacle!

    Women also have childhood trauma, but still forge ahead to try to trust to no avail for some and successful relationships for others, in spite of statistics or biased narratives!

  • Applebootay

    Don't break my heart like that.....I still daydream about him....tell the DEVIL HE IS A LIAR!

  • Applebootay

    I'm about to go play GO now....thanks...one of my favs too.

    I could get down with that....LOL

  • T Willis

    Lol @ Harry Potter stories ?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know, he spoke very highly of Serena on Jimmy Kimmel, and Serena responded like “why didn’t he say it to me!”

    Black men need to call a moratorium on “commitment fear!”

  • leapyearpisces

    The devil is a liar. I will rebuke my thoughts. :-)

  • Kimberly King

    She's dated many black men before she ran into her husband. These ninjas be playing games.

  • Kimberly King

    Makes me feel a certain type of way whenever I hear it ! The song is essentially about sex, but Common is so clever with his wording that the song never sounded vulgar.

  • leapyearpisces

    Well he need to call me...867-5309.

  • leapyearpisces

    I hope that is the case. :-).

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    What about Serena? ?

  • Slim Goodie

    That was the final discard. Typical narcissistic behavior.

  • Slim Goodie

    Try Palo Santo. Sage is too aggressive IMO.

  • Renee26

    I'm going to look into it... Thanks for the suggestion!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I also like retrospective of life with Lauryn Hill. That's the song that made me fall in love with him. I had never heard a man speak in that manner about a woman he loved until then

    I don't know but the article says that he says 'He says he's open to a relationship with a woman again. Hmm.......
