[Blind Gossip] You’ll be seeing more of this new celebrity couple in the New Year.
It’s an odd relationship.
They are not a romantic couple.
They are not a couple put together for a specific marketing purpose (like playing a couple in an upcoming film).
There is no contract.
However, the two are friends.
She is a comedic actress who would love to host an awards show.
She hasn’t had a boyfriend in at least five years but she does talk a lot about having a baby.
He is a rapper.
Although he has been linked to various women – including a famous athlete – he has not even come close to marriage.
Someone who personally knows them both says this:
They don’t actually make sense as a couple, but neither of them has anything else going on except work, so they figured what the hell. She has a lot of movies coming out, so dating him could give her some good talking points for interviews.
This is an odd arrangement for two people in their 40s. They don’t seem to have a lot in common or even a strong attraction to each other. Could there be some other motivation?

Couple: Tiffany Haddish and Common
This is one odd couple!
Actress Tiffany Haddish and rapper Common have known each other for years.
Lately, the status of their relationship has been… mysterious.
Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, recently referred to them as a “beautiful couple.”
Then Tiffany Haddish made an appearance in a brief video for Cedric the Entertainer. Cedric gathered together some of his famous friends for a cyberspace fundraiser called “Healing Through Laughter.”
While Cedric was talking to Haddish…. Common suddenly appeared on screen… and it looked like he was living with Haddish!
From The Grio:
During their cyberspace conversation, the actress playfully revealed that she wasn’t in the house alone and that the Chicago-born rapper turned actor was actually keeping her company during the stay-at-home mandate.
Common was cool as a cucumber as he thanked Cedric for keeping people’s spirits up through humor during these uncertain times. However, when Haddish popped back on the screen, the look of mischief in her eyes was undeniable as she suggestively winked at the viewers and playfully stuck her tongue out.
As she walked down the hall, away from Common, Cedric echoed what many were thinking and said, “Tiff, that’s an exclusive.”
A few days later, Tiffany Haddish was remotely interviewed by Wendy Williams.
Here’s an old photo of Haddish and Williams together.
From The Blast:
Wendy Williams Throws Rapper Common Under The Bus
Lesson of the day: Don’t ask Wendy Williams for dating advice.
The shady TV host is never one to back down when it comes to telling it like it is to her fans, friends, ex-husband and anyone else who gets in her way.
Williams has been taping her show “The Wendy Williams Show” in her home and the change of scenery has seemed to have made her even more comfortable stating her opinion, not that it was a problem before.
Wendy Williams has never been shy about throwing shade at even the biggest celebrities.
Remember when Whitney Houston wanted to fight Wendy Williams when Williams discussed Houston’s gay relationship on air?
One of Wendy Williams’ guests this week was actress Tiffany Haddish.
…The comedian had a lot to say. She joked about possibly sequestering with rapper turned actor Common. The friends had been dodging rumors for quite some time now about being a couple.
While Haddish did not confirm that they are dating she did hint that he was her home partner and even made a few jokes about not being able to get her birth control shot. Is Haddish planning a baby?
Williams seemed concerned that her friend was making a bad decision regarding Common. Yet, she still showed a level of support that is just sly enough to be either support or shade. “I like Tiffany Haddish and Common, only because she’s been lusting after him for so long.”
So that was the Wendy Williams interview.
Then, a few days later, things took a weird turn.
Tiffany Haddish suddenly started ranting on social media about some sort of break up!
This one for the people that ever talked to me for hours, hung out with me, laid down with me, told me you loved me, you would fight for me…..Smh Fake ass cause then you turned around and tried to destroy me. Well guess what I still Love you from the other side of the universe and I am rubber you are glue everything you say bad about me and everything you try to do to hurt me is Bouncing off of me and sticking to you 10x’s more. Stay strong cause I am as I walk out of your life forever. #fuckusers #don’tgetsick #stillloveyoujustalsohateyou #iamprayingforyou #SHEREADY

Haddish did not specify about whom she was ranting, but it certainly didn’t sound like she had some sort of argument with a female friend.
Most of the commenters speculated that she broke up with Common.
However, Haddish is being as mysterious as ever about who the Instagram rant was about… and the status of her relationship with Common, who appears to be living with her.
Friends? Beards? Lovers? Exes?
Your friends at Blind Gossip told you back in December 2019 that this was coming, and it’s now here.
Whatever the status of their relationship, both Tiffany Haddish and Common are certainly wringing out the publicity on this one!
Congratulations to Brobdingnagian for being first with the correct response!
And… it’s over!
That weird relationship between Tiffany Haddish and Common is dunzo!
It apparently did not end on a pleasant note, either, as the two have unfollowed each other on social media.
Two days ago, Haddish posted a rant on social media.
THIS IS FOR MOST OF MY EXES. BITS AND PIECES ARE FOR DIFFERENT ONES. I am so sick of my ex F**k Boys and yes YOU still a f**kboy even if we was in a relationship cause you still was trying to f**k when it was over, Boy. Stop reaching out to me trying to be my friend, I don’t want to be your friend. Plus you got a whole women and Babies on they way and we been done for years.
That’s ugly. But there’s even more.
But you want a windfall of money, and want me to make that wind go? Huh hahahaha if I thought that would remove you from my entire life I would. Just act like I never said I love you. Cause who I was loving wasn’t the real you. When the real you showed up I was disappointed and disgusted, so please go away forever. PEACE AND HAPPINESS BE UPON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
That “peace and happiness” bit at the end isn’t really convincing after such a rant, is it?
We don’t know about whom Tiffany Haddish is ranting, but it’s odd that she would take such a personal feud so public.
Then she unfollowed Common. And he unfollowed her.
So maybe the rant was about Common. Maybe not.
Yes, it’s confusing. We told you that this relationship was weird… even before it started!
Other than for publicity reasons, we don’t know why these two pretended to date.
Whatever the reason, perhaps “living together” may have put such a strain on their friendship that the two are no longer friends, either.
Is it possible that one of them developed real feelings for the other one and that interest was not reciprocated. You know, where one thought they loved each other as friends, but the other one thought it was love love?
Or is it possible that Tiffany Haddish’s bout with corona has impaired her ability to think clearly?
Or is it possible that Tiffany Haddish finally expressed her secret love for President Donald Trump and Common decided that he just couldn’t compete?
Just kidding about that last one! Haddish is not a Trump fan.
Whatever the reason for the relationship/breakup, don’t expect to ever hear the truth from either Haddish or Common.
Celebrities who engage in a fake relationships are usually contractually obligated to stay tight-lipped about them forever.
We are actually not aware of a contract in this relationship, but that actually might have been part of the problem!
When the rules are spelled out and lawyers are involved, everyone generally follows the script. When there is no contract and no attorneys and the parties are just winging it, it can get messy.
Especially when one of the parties is so vocal and erratic with her scorched earth policy.
Perhaps she thinks that’s part of her charm.
Tiffany Haddish and Common. Over. And messy!
