Too Fine to Be Single in Human Form: Common and His (In)Famous Dating History
As Lonnie Rashid Lynn best known as rapper/actor/activist Common and Jennifer Hudson have made their relationship daytime television official, many fans are reminiscing back over the rapper’s dating history (my friends and I are many fans.) We have so many questions, as Common seems and ideal mate yet hasn’t worked out with quite a few top-tier women. What’s wrong with Common? Is he toxic? A Narcissist? A love bomber? Is he going to break the heart of our beloved JHud? I think I may have clue to the root cause. Like my father, son, and first true love: he’s a Pisces. I generally shy away from generalizations but it has been my experience that Pisces men are amazing human beings in many ways. Accountability doesn’t tend to be one of them though.
With the exception of Tiffany Haddish, none of Common’s exes have publicly shaded him. I remember a fan referencing some earrings she thought Common purchased for the comedian. Haddish responded by saying he may have purchased them for “Jennifer.”
“We broke up and got back together, to get her back I had to sweat her.” – Common
In fact he previously made claims that Thee Erykah Badu, in fact left him heartbroken. He stated that she was his first love. That wouldn’t be odd, except for the fact that he dated Erykah Badu circa 2001, but fathered a daughter with ex-partner Kim Jones in 1998. Sir, how do you think that statement made your daughter or her mother feel? Then again we are talking about the notorious Badu Box and Stare, that no man can resist. (We’ve all heard the legend) They pair did however make beautiful music together.
Lets dig into some of Common’s fabulous and famous exes.
2000-2002 Erykah Badu
2005 Taraji P. Henson
2007-2010 Serena Williams
2020-2021 Tiffany Haddish
Present Day Jennifer Hudson
Maybe Common’s unsuccessful dating history has nothing to do with his zodiac sign and everything to do with him having three first names. Still fans are hopeful that J Hud will be his happily ever after as the couple seem very happy. They also have a lot in common with Jennifer being an EGOT and common only being a couple of letters away himself. Fingers crossed.
