Tiffany Haddish and Common (real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn) had a very low-key relationship for nearly two years, but the two split by late 2021. Nearly two years later, Tiffany dropped a few bombshell revelations about how they broke up.
Why Did Tiffany Haddish and Common Break Up?
After reports surfaced in November 2021 that the duo had split, Tiffany and Common appeared to remain amicable exes. That December, Common appeared on the “Hollywood Unlocked With Jason Lee” podcast, calling his and Tiffany’s split a “mutual decision.”
“[We] came to the understanding that this is what’s gonna be best for us,” he concluded at the time.
However, by July 2023, Tiffany set the record straight on how she and Common ended their former relationship.
“It was more him saying, ‘I think this relationship has run its course,’” Tiffany claimed to The Washington Post, adding that he broke up with her on the phone. “And I was like, ‘OK. Like, you gonna be a 50-year-old single man. OK?’”
Nevertheless, Tiffany reflected on the positive aspects of her and Common’s past romance, noting that she “felt safest out of all the relationships [she’s] ever had” and their relationship was the “healthiest [and] the funniest.”
When Did Tiffany Haddish and Common Start Dating?
The Hollywood pair met while playing love interests in the 2019 movie The Kitchen. Romance rumors began buzzing about the duo in April 2020 after they teamed up for Bumble’s virtual dating campaign.
The Night School actress all but confirmed their relationship one month later as she explained why she spent more time at the “Blue Sky” artist’s home instead of her own amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“His house [is] bigger than my house, so that’s nice. We spend way more time [at his place],” Tiffany said during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres at the time. “I live in South Central L.A. He came over to my house, like, maybe once or twice, and then, I’ve been at his. He lives in the Hills, you know. It’s nice!”
That being said, the Nobody’s Fool actress clarified on the “SmartLess” podcast in September that she and the Chicago native didn’t “live in the same house.”
Were Tiffany Haddish and Common Ever Engaged?
Tiffany and Common never took the plunge in their relationship. That being said, the Last O.G. actress noted on the “SmartLess” podcast that she didn’t have interest in a ring if Common popped the question.
“If he decides he wants to marry me, cool. I don’t want a ring, I want an apartment building,” Tiffany said, adding that the “When We Move” artist was “aware” of her “crazy” request.
She continued, “You know they present you with a ring, I want him to present me with the deed to a duplex or a 36-plex. Present me with an apartment building.”
The “Let It Lie” rapper previously gushed about their romance during an appearance on the “Every Day” podcast.
“I think one of the important things about relationships for me has been to really know myself more and love myself and be able to express the things that I want,” Common explained. “I’ve evolved and gotten to that place.”
