Common Speaks Out For First Time Since Breakup With Tiffany Haddish

Another one bites the dust.

Celebrity News

Fresh off of his breakup with Tiffany Haddish, Common is opening up about their relationship and what led to their split. During an interview with Jason Lee on Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored, the “Come Close” MC got candid about his love for the comedian while also acknowledging that ultimately their careers got in the way of their union.


“First of all, I want to say, Tiffany, as you know, is for me, like, one of the best people I met in life,” Common said. “One of the best-hearted and most authentic and caring people that I met in life, and that’s what made me love her and be in love with her and want to be in a relationship with her and grow with her.”

He continued, “We had a real healthy and loving relationship. It was probably the most mature relationship I’ve been in. The communication, the respect, just all around, man.”

Unfortunately, their love and respect for one another in their relationship weren’t enough. The two reportedly called it quits in late November with sources pointing it to their busy schedules.

“I don’t think the love really dispersed,” he said. “I think it was just like we weren’t feeding the relationship.”

He concluded, “I feel like both of us cherish and valued our relationship and both have come out better human beings.”

While Common noted that it was a mutual split, Tiffany has yet to speak out about their breakup.

When news broke about their relationship ending, many fans were caught off guard, and then there were some who blamed the rapper for the breakup due to his long history of dating some of the most high-profile women, but the relationships never lasted.

“There seems to be a pattern...It appears that Common likes to love bomb women, eventually drifts away, and blame it on everything else but the truth. I hope he realizes it and works on himself...also, some people just arent meant to be monogamous,” someone commented under the video of the interview.

“I don't believe Common...I want him not to date anyone to he knows what he want. This isn't a good look for him. When you get to a certain age you should know what you want. I wish him the best in life,” commented another.

The Chi-town artist even admitted that there was a pattern after he spoke with a therapist. TellingThe Breakfast Club in May 2019:

"The pattern I found myself in — and my therapist broke it down — was the feeling of being in love and that honeymoon period. I was addicted to that feeling. I obviously care for the person, but when things got tough and it was time to work through stuff, I wasn't willing to work through it."

Here are some of the other women the Academy Award-winning rapper has dated.

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
