Jennifer Hudson and Common have finally confirmed what everyone’s been thinking. The Chicago natives are more than just friends, and Common’s last ex, Tiffany Haddish, might not be too happy about it. Let’s take a look at the new pair and what Common’s quarantine boo thinks about him after their breakup last year.
Tiffany Haddish joined a long line of Hollywood women smitten by the rapper-turned-actor. While shooting promotional content together for a dating app during the global lockdown, the duo realized that they had real-world chemistry they wanted to explore. Common and Tiffany became official on social media, even participating in the silhouette challenge, sharing a steamy kiss. By 2022 the pair had called it quits, and it seemed like Haddish was not too happy about it.
Haddish went on a bit of a smear campaign, opening up about their relationship with her Hollywood Unlocked bestie Jason Lee. In it, she called Common out for lying about their split, making it clear the “Go!” hitmaker was not ready to settle down with her. Meanwhile, in Common’s interview with Jason, he just made it seem like they were busy with their careers.
Haddish would obviously go on to have a pretty tough 2022 careerwise, but Common continued to work and, by the fall, was cozied up with Jennifer Hudson playing her on-screen husband in the upcoming film Breathe. Photos of the pair looking very close continued to hit the net while Hudson downplayed things. “People create their narratives of it…we shot a film together, and he played my husband. We gotta eat in between that moments.”

Hudson finalized her split from David Otunga in 2017 and has been on the market since. In addition to her rumored relationship with Common, some thought she could possibly be dating Marlon Wayans too. However, it seems her connection to Common was a lot stronger. “They’ve known each other for years,” confirmed insiders. Common was one of the first to show Jennifer love on the launch of her daytime talk show as well.
“Congratulations @iamjhud on the birth of The Jennifer Hudson shows,” he said in a social media post. “You looked amazing up there. So Pure. So True. And really, really moving. And above all, so Chicago! YES YES. Chicago moves on 4ever! Blessings!” Fans seem to enjoy the idea of Common and Jennifer Hudson together. Over on Twitter, people have said, “Common and Jennifer Hudson dating? I can see the vision.” Another person said, “Common and Jennifer Hudson? Okay, I’m here for it. It’s giving Chitown Lovers.”
Others think it’s a red flag and think Jennifer should be weary. “So Common dated Tiffany Haddish, but now he’s supposed to be in love with Jennifer Hudson like why does that seem weird to me?!” Another said, “Common went from Tiffany Haddish to Jennifer Hudson. Two totally different personalities, lol” Meanwhile, Haddish poked fun at the news, posting a photo of an old man in a wheelchair saying, “I’m finally ready to settle down,” immediately after news of the couple surfaced over the summer. “That’s why I hang at Adult Daycares for fun! I know I will find a real one in there,” she said in the caption.
Fans quickly connected the jab at her ex, Common. “Why do I feel like this was a shot at common ???” Another stated, “This is because you said Common needed to buy you an apartment building instead of engagement ring. 😂😂😂 I knew it was over when you made that comment. Now he wit JHud biking and [expletive]. ”
Tiffany Haddish is currently moving on with her life following backlash that stemmed for a skit. The comedian is slated to make her return in Girls Trip 2.
