Common and Angela Rye split

CNN political analyst Angela Rye confirmed she and rapper activist Common have called it quits. The emotionally unavailable Common and the fiery Rye, who has a rigid personality, split sometime last month.

Rye, 38, confirmed the split to Page Six TV saying: “We have and will always be friends. He is an amazing human being, and I’m a much better person because he’s a part of my life. May we all keep loving and living.”

Common, 45, was first linked to Rye in the summer of 2017. He opened up about the relationship during an interview on SiriusXM in October, gushing: “There’s a definite connection with Angela Rye. She’s a wonderful woman, I’m dating, I’m happy right now, and she’s an incredible human being.”

Their union did not produce children.
