Social media never tells us the full story. Case in point: Common and Tiffany Haddish’s relationship. Haddish first confirmed she was dating the Oscar-winning rapper in August. But less than three months later, they’ve already being hit with wild breakup rumors. It began when some observant Instagram users noticed Common had unfollowed the actress, and instantly took it as a sign that the two had split. Granted, an unfollow is typically a sure-fire way to determine whether or not our favorite celebrities have broken up; but Haddish set the record straight in a new Extra interview.
Despite the circulating rumors, Haddish and Common have not broken up. In fact, Haddish told Extra, “I feel like it’s gonna work. I haven’t felt like this about a relationship ever.” Honestly, we love to hear it.
The amazing comedian that Haddish is, it’s only right for her to find someone that makes her laugh for a change. Luckily, it seems that she has. The gushing actress continued to tell the outlet, “We laugh all the time. He’s actually really funny.”
The actress then joked, “I’m like, ‘You should do this comedy movie with me.’ He’s like, ‘I don’t want to exploit our relationship’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t want to be in no relationship where we making no money!'”
And if things don’t work out, Haddish already has her Plan B! While talking to the first Black Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, she said: “If this relationship doesn’t work out I’m taking my ass to the Bachelorette!” Which we can’t lie, would be absolutely iconic.
As far as the shady Instagram activity goes, it looks like the two are back to following each other. That’ll teach us something about trusting social media!
