Tiffany Haddish Was "Disappointed" by Common's Comments About Their Breakup

Tiffany Haddish and Common have called it quits after a year of dating, and it seems that the once-amicable breakup may be taking a bit of a prickly turn.

Haddish went on FOX SOUL’s Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored with Jason Lee last week and shared her take on comments her rapper-turned-actor ex made on the same show earlier in the month.

Common had started off by telling Lee that Haddish is “one of the best people I’ve met in life, one of the best-hearted and most authentic and caring people that I’ve met in life,” going on to explain, “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 even said the duo had a “real healthy and loving relationship” going, but apparently love wasn’t enough. The Selma star, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, attributed the breakup to busy schedules and a lack of time to spend nurturing a long-term pairing.

“Once Tiffany and I got back on the move [following isolation due to COVID-19], it really didn’t allow for us to spend as much time and put as much energy into our relationship.”

Sounds legit… but Haddish apparently has a different take.

In her interview with Lee, the stand-up comedian made it clear that what Common is saying in public and what he told her in private don’t quite gel. “I was disappointed. I was very disappointed. I was like, ‘Oh, OK. ‘Cause that’s not what you told me, but OK.”

There was also some discussion between Lee and Haddish of Common’s colorful romantic past, with Lee calling the Oscar winner the “common denominator” in breakups with a slew of famous ladies including Empire’s Taraji P. Henson, singer Erykah Badu, and decorated tennis pro Serena Williams.

“He might be the type of person that never really settles with somebody,” mused Haddish. “Maybe he’s like, you know, like a bee going from flower to flower to flower. I don’t know. I wish him nothing but joy and happiness, you know. He will always be cool.”

Some of Haddish’s disappointment could stem from claims she wasn’t told the couple's breakup was going public before a source’s report to People hit the internet and stirred up widespread speculation.

Haddish first confirmed she and her Chicago-born ex-beau were an item in August 2020, when went on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast and detailed their “meet cute” (a virtual date on Bumble while quarantining).While Haddish hasn’t had many high-profile relationships, she was once married, filing for divorce in 2011, about six years before she got her big break as part of the cast of Girls Trip.
