Jaguar Wright has accused rapper Common of sexually assaulting her. The Philadelphia singer, who is known for her collaborations with The Roots and Jay-Z, shared the shocking news in a recent interview.

The 43-year-old Philly native described an incident that occurred after a show with Common. The "next thing we know we go to bed and he says, 'C'mon Jag.' No, I'm tired, n***a. I was on the stage all night, I wanna lay down."

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."

Common has yet to respond to the allegations made against him by Wright.

#MeToo founder Tarana Burke reveals her fiancé has tested positive for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

In a long Twitter thread on Thursday, Burke shared that her fiancé tested positive for the virus.

"I went back and forth about talking about this but my partner has Covid and the last two weeks of my life have been some of the scariest. The reason why I'm sharing is because I've read so much information but the most informative has been first person accounts of folks with it."

Burke, who won't reveal her fiancé's name, added that she and her partner were both exposed to the virus in mid-March because he is an essential employee who works with the homeless.

"It took about three days to figure out that we were probably dealing with Covid," she said. "In 3 days he went from feeling a little weak to 101.5 fever. Along with the fever he had something we had not read about: sensitive skin. His skin felt like it was burning - even when he barely had a fever of 99+."

Burke said they both went to the ER where they received Covid-19 tests and he was treated for dehydration and elevated blood sugar. "He was positive and I was negative," she said.

She described nursing her fiancé back to health. Burke said the doctor told her partner to stay inside for seven more days until the virus had run its course.

"...the doctor instructed him to stay inside at least 7 more days to be sure he's all the way through it. I would also suggest to let it run its course. He started trying to work out again and nearly fainted! Anyway, please stay safe and do your best not to get it at all."

I’ve kept my relationship relatively private for a lot of reasons. So much of my life is public now that it’s nice to have something just for us. Also, years ago I went ‘public’ with another relationship and was so embarrassed when it ended and I was faced with questions about it. When I got these pictures back I so loved them because they capture us at our best - carefree and in love. We took them on Highbridge, the oldest bridge in NY located in the Bronx neighborhood of the same name where we both grew up. It was a beautiful afternoon filled with beautiful, Black love. When I showed one of my girls and shared that I was debating going public she said “Black love is to be celebrated” and that resonated with me. So today I’m celebrating my love and all of the love spread from my timeline across the world. Happy Valentine’s Day ? #abronxtale ? - @strangebirdproductions ?

Lupita Nyong'o is praising the presence of intimacy coaches on sets during love scenes. The Black Panther star tells Vanity Fair magazine she's glad sexism and abuse are now hot topics in Hollywood, but she believes Hollywood can be "oversensitive" to sexism in the wake of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.

That's why she's praising the inclusion of intimacy coaches on movie sets to help actors feel comfortable during sex scenes.

"I'm quite happy that there is that kind of extreme change, and hopefully we find equilibrium as we move forward," the 36-year-old explained.

Nyong'o says intimacy coaches are now more commonplace on movie sets.

"In the past, when it came to physical combat, there were always consultants on set, but when it came to intimacy there was never, ever somebody present to help actors navigate that," she adds. "Now you have that, which I think is a great inclusion, and ensures that those kinds of abuses don't happen."

"I feel like there's parts of myself that I care to share and then there are parts that I don't," Lupita explains of her desire to keep her personal life private.
