Tiffany Haddish and Common split: are ‘too busy for a serious relationship’

Tiffany Haddish and Common join the pride BLM protest
Last year Tiffany Haddish found herself in an entanglement with hip hop’s most eligible bachelor, the Black George Clooney (before Amal), Common. Tiffany was extra AF when she confirmed back in August 2020 that she and Common were a couple, said she loved him and added that they both had been tested before doing the horizontal. Tiffany seemed more enthusiastic about their relationship than Common, which was a red flag for those of us who have been following Common for years. Two months later, we heard rumors that they had broken up because they unfollowed each other on the Gram. Tiffany denied that a few days later. Maybe there was something to those early rumors because a source told People that the two have recently broken up. The reason given was that they were too busy for a relationship. The source stated that Tiffany and Common are rarely in the same city and therefore couldn’t keep the fires burning. A few highlights from People:

“They are never in the same city together and both of them are just too busy for a serious relationship,” the source says.

Their split comes over a year after Haddish revealed she and Common were dating in an interview with Steve-O on his podcast Steve-O’s Wild Ride in August 2020.

“I am in a relationship,” the Girls Trip star, 41, said before confirming she was dating Common, 49.

“Yeah, we’re twins now,” she joked at the time of their similar shaved heads.

The two met on the set of the 2019 film The Kitchen where they became friends, Haddish told Steve-O.

She added that at the time it “wasn’t anything sexual or anything like that because my eyes were set on something else.”

It was after they went on a virtual Bumble date in April that their relationship blossomed, however. “And then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything and yeah, we’ve been f—ing,” she said.

Listen, when all of this came out I was concerned about how hot and enthusiastic Tiffany was about her budding relationship with Common. Common is a lover and I didn’t expect him to behave any differently with Tiffany than he had with all of the other women he had had relationships with. It was cringey watching Tiffany talk about how she loved Common while Common was saying that he “cared” for her. I knew then that it wouldn’t last long. Women mess up when we think we have magical vaginas and guys will change when WE date them. It has been common knowledge that Common’s (pun intended) past behavior shows that he prefers short term (1-2 years) situationships. If it were me, I would have went into the relationship just for the sex and bragging rights.

A lot of women have been in their feelings all over Twitter about the dissolution of this relationship and I personally don’t understand why. Common has been like this since the late 90s. He is as consistent in his relationship goals as he is with wearing them damn gray sweaters (I said it). No woman should go into a relationship with Common thinking they are going to bag him. Anyways, I am sure the excuse that they are rarely in the same city and don’t have time for each other is convenient. However, we are still in a pandemic and work is just now picking up. I know that Common released a new album in September of this year but his last movie came out early last year, so I am not buying it. But that’s none of my business. I hope, despite my feelings towards Tiffany, that she did not get her heart too involved. I hope the next woman in Common’s life knows that the only purpose of being with Common is to have fun and nothing more.

    Ok VENEERS! 😲

  2. Stephanie says:

    She seemed very into it, so hopefully she’s not heartbroken.

    she is tacky as all helll…recently I read something where she said she wants real estate rather than an engagement ring in regards to Common. I guess he said definitely time to cut it off. Yup but tackiness does not prevent a broken heart….I hope hers has been spared.

    • Lawcatb says:

      Her comment was in reference to giving back to the black community by providing good affordable housing, and wanting to help black people build generational wealth. And it was during a interview when she was talking about all the other ways she gives to the community. There was a lot of context that went along with this that you apparently missed.

    This is the reason all celeb couples give. Their “schedules” are too busy. I mean, they don’t owe us anything but why even mention WHY you broke up? Just say you broke up and move on from it. Don’t lie to us lol.

  5. JRenee says:

    He really is a serial dater. He seems to be a private guy, but it may be because of his dating life. Anyway, she’s an over sharer. Hopefully she isn’t too heart broken, but no one should be dating him with a long term commitment in mind..

    Common is the Community peen. You go into it knowing it’s just sex and then you move on. He’s always given me f@ck boi vibes.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      He and 50 Cent.

    • Oya says:

      But why the “f*ckboi” label? To me a f*ckboi is someone who lies about their intentions and lead you down the merry rose path, Common does not. He seems pretty clear about not wanting anything long term.

    Aww man. I just listened to her guest appearance on Smartless podcast. It sounds like is working all the time. But yeah she also sounded very into him, said she would marry him. Whoopsie, as Chelsea handler says

    Tiffany is an absolute gem – very few would be good enough for her.
    She had a very difficult upbringing — mother with serious mental illness, not even sure she stayed in the home growing up. Then a period of homelessness.
    She did stand-up at one of my company’s events – at the end of her act, she kept pointing at everyone sending person after person blessings. Maybe she does it at all of her events but it seemed really sincere and choked me up.
    I don’t think she has a lot of romantic experience and I hope she finds someone who will treat her the absolute best next time.
