Wright, pictured in 2005, said she slept fully clothed so as not to give Common any suggestions. However, she said things went left in the morning.

"This n***a tryin' to stick his d**k in my mouth while I'm sleep. Lonnie f**kin' Lynn. Rashid. Common. Whatever the f**k you wanna call yourself. That's why I stopped f**kin' with him. Because n***a, if you gon' try to stick your d**k in my mouth while I'm sleep, there ain't nothin' you won't do."

Common's fans were shocked to hear Wright's allegations about him. Although Common is emotionally unavailable and has difficulty maintaining relationships with women, he always seemed like a gentleman.

The news comes as comedic actress Tiffany Haddish confirmed she and Common are a romantic item.

"This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in. Knock on wood!" said the 40-year-old Sagittarius. "I've lost 20 pounds since I've been in this relationship. I feel more confident in me and it's not him that's doing it. 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."

"This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in. Knock on wood! I've lost 20 pounds since I've been in this relationship. I feel more confident in me and it's not him that's doing it.

Tiffany Haddish and spoken word rapper Common apparently split recently -- and she's spilling all his tea on social media.

Sandrarose.com was among the blogs to break the news last year that Tiffany and Common were a couple.

Her friends were happy for Tiffany, whose reported mental health issues made it difficult for her to maintain a steady relationship.

But rapper Common is in the same boat. His documented mental and emotional problems caused him to go through women like water. He broke up with CNN political analyst Angela Rye before dating Tiffany.

The couple attended a get-together with Cedric The Entertainer just last week.

And, in a video, Tiffany shared that she and Common, 48, were quarantining at home together amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The 40-year-old standup comic also claimed she was staying off birth control in an effort to have his baby.

But breakup rumors soon surfaced.

According to multiple reports, Common moved out of Tiffany's home over the weekend.

She left very angry comments on social media about a "fake ass" she laid up with, and how she’s walking out of his life forever.

This one for the people that ever talked to me for hours, hung out with me, laid down with me, told me you loved me, you would fight for me.....Smh Fake ass

Rapper/actor Common shared his admiration and respect for longtime pal Queen Latifah by penning a poem in honor of her 50th birthday.

The hip-hop pioneer, real name Dana Owens, marked the milestone on Wednesday, March 18, and Common was among her famous friends to pay tribute on social media.

But instead of just sharing a simple birthday greeting, Common came up with a touching piece of poetry, in which he recounted the beginnings of his Just Wright co-stars' close bond after crossing paths in New York City when he was "an unsigned artist seeking a dream".

He continued, "Years later as an artist I would get to meet her, And get to know her as Dana and I was still inspired by Latifah. Because she was she doing movies, TV shows, rapping and could sing. But it was the unstoppable light inside her that made her The Queen."

"Later on we go on to do a movie together, and on this path we would find a friendship and bond that would be forever," he added.

"So whenever I see the Queen I know that everything is Alright, I Love you Dana when GOD made you HE did it Just Right."

Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, also shared a sweet caption for his poem, writing, "Happy Born Day Dana! You are one of the greatest human being [sic] I've ever met. You have inspired me in ways that you can't fathom and you continue to.

"Thank you for being the Phenomenal Goddess that the Creator made you to be and sharing that light that smile, that gift, that flow, that voice, that acting presence and skill, that energy, that love and that joy with us. I celebrate you. Happy Born Day. Love You Rashid @queenlatifah".

Latifah's Girls Trip co-star Tiffany Haddish and actress Taraji P. Henson also sent well wishes to the birthday girl via social media.

Tiffany Haddish celebrated her 40th birthday on Tuesday, Dec. 3, by throwing herself a belated bat mitzvah. Her invited guests included rumored boyfriend, rapper Common. The Girls Trip actress and the popular rap star have been inseparable since Common, 47, dumped his political analyst girlfriend Angela Rye, 40, back in September.

A bat mitzvah is Hebrew for "daughter of commandment," when 12-year-old Jewish girls mature to adulthood. Haddish was inspired by her father's background as an Eritrean Jew for the title of her new stand-up comedy show, Black Mitzvah, which debuted on Netflix. She decided to celebrate the launch of her new comedy show at the party - which also doubled as a traditional coming-of-age bash.

A Rabbi presided over the bat mitzvah ceremony. When a Jewish girl turns 12, she assumes the rights and responsibilities of a Jewish adult. But Haddish discovered her religious heritage later in life, so she decided to make her 40th birthday a celebration to remember.

Haddish even took part in a traditional Hora dance. She was raised into the air on a chair, and sang along to Israeli folk song, "Hava Nagila".

Celebrity guests included (L-R) Niko Khalé, his baby mama Keyshia Cole; Jessica Gadsden and Charlamagne tha God. Ironically, the party took Haddish back to her entertainment roots as she used to work as an "energy producer" at bar and bat mitzvahs at the very start of her career.

Haddish's good friend, comedian and cross-dresser Flame Monroe embraced Haddish at her Black Mitzvah celebration at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Monroe describes himself as both a drag queen and "comedian who happens to be transgender".

The father-of-two caused controversy when he appeared as a guest on NYC's Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club radio show and insisted "there ain't no women with penises." Click here to watch the interview.

The Internet is convinced that emotionally unavailable rapper Common is dating comic actor Tiffany Haddish. They say Common kicked Angeles Rye to the curb after taking her back twice.

The 47-year-old rapper/actor and then-39-year-old political analyst broke up in March of last year after a rocky relationship. They both released statements saying they remained friends.

But they got back together in May only to part ways again before reuniting in August. Now it seems they are done for good. According to the gossipmongers on message board Lipstick Alley, he dumped Angela in September to pursue Tiffany, a divorcee with a well-documented history of emotional and mental problems.

In between his multiple breakups with Angela, Common sought counseling from unlicensed therapist Michelle Obama.

He said she told him that his emotional issues stems from his ordeal as a child when he was molested by an uncle.

The abuse caused him to question his own sexuality which made it difficult for him to relate to women. Particularly so-called "strong, independent women" like Angela, who has personality issues of her own.

According to the sleuths on Lipstick Alley, Common skipped Angela's 40th birthday party in October. A few days later he was spotted taking Selfies with Tiffany backstage at the Blue Note Jazz Club. He recently flew to the West Coast to celebrate Tiffany's 40th birthday.

Update: her good friend said that when common went on tour in sept he kinda got distant. stopped calling, etc. when he came back he just sat her down and told her that they just didn't have it. he wasn't feeling the chemistry needed to go forward. same friend said common was super nice and cool when he hung out with her, but that they didn't have any romantic chemistry. seemed more like a guy she was kicking it with and not a couple. i've heard a few people say that-- they never acted or seemed like a couple. just no spark between them, no affection, and apparently no love because he let her know he just wasn't in love with her like that.

He missed Angela's 40th but flew to LA with Tiffany Haddish to celebrate hers. I'm surprised TMZ didn't catch them leaving NYC and arriving at LAX at the same time. They've been glued to the hip since he got back on tour. Weren't they rumored to be together after he and Angela broke up the first time?

UPDATE: one of tiffany's party guests-- a poster artists she hired for the part-- just replied on IG. confirmed she and common are def dating. said he was in LA on business as well as for her bday party.

 

Questions: 1. Considering their past histories of emotional unavailability, do you think Common and Tiffany make a good couple?

2. How long do you think they will last before he moves on to the next emotionally damaged Hollywood starlet?

Common and Angela Rye

Rapper/actor Common and political commentator Angela Rye attended the Los Angeles Screening of Showtime's The Chi at The Downtown Independent on Wednesday. The Chi is a TV series created by Lena Waithe about life on the South Side of Chicago.

Unlike director Spike Lee's widely panned film Chi-Raq, which focused on gang violence in Chicago, Waithe takes the viewer on a fanciful journey that portrays South Side residents in a positive "human light".
