In a recent interview with Hoda Kotb on her Making Space podcast, Tiffany Haddish reveals her thoughts on her ex-boyfriend Common and his new relationship with Jennifer Hudson. In a shocking surprise, she seems to be overjoyed for the pair. The comedian noted that she “loved” Hudson and hoped the two were “having fun.” Tiffany Haddish and the Chicago-bred rapper dated back in 2021. However, their romance was short-lived, and they broke up a year later.

While Common defends that the decision was mutual, Haddish said it came as a surprise. “It’s like, you remember when you was a kid and you’d be on a play date, and y’all like playing, having a good time, and then all of a sudden, y’all like sliding down the slide, and then you turn around and go, ‘Where did they go? Where did they — where’d they go?’” she told the Today show host. She added, “And you see them waving at you and they mama carrying them. And they’re like, ‘Byeee.’ That’s what it was like.”

Common And Jennifer Hudson Relationship Timeline

Hudson and the “Glory” rapper were initially romantically linked in 2022, but Hudson quickly squashed those rumors. That said, one year later, the couple had gone public about their new relationship. The pair have been spotted out on date nights, even one where they went to see Usher perform his residency in Las Vegas. Earlier this year, Common stopped by the Dreamgirls actress’ TV show to promote his new book, And Then We Rise. However, it seems promotion wasn’t the only thing on the rapper’s mind.

He also took the time to briefly discuss the pair’s then-budding romance. “I’m in a relationship with one of the most beautiful people I ever met in life,” Common told Kotb and Jenny in a January interview. “She’s smart, she loves God, she has something real down-to-earth about her, she’s talented.” He added, “This relationship is a happy place for me. Seeing her happy actually makes me really happy. So I’m very grateful. I thank God each and every day, and I’m just letting God guide this relationship.”
