Haddish and Common confirmed their relationship when the comedian appeared on the “Wild Ride With Steve-O” podcast in July 2020. “I am in a relationship,” she revealed. The couple reportedly met on the set of 2019’s “The Kitchen,” but things didn’t turn romantic until the following year.
In April 2020, Bumble invited Haddish to participate in a virtual dating campaign for Bumble Video Chat, and she asked Common out on a virtual date. “At this point, our friendship was getting a little more than friendship, but not quite,” Haddish said during her podcast appearance. Sparks flew, and after more virtual dates, the two decided to quarantine together. Relationship rumors picked up after they made a joint appearance on an Instagram Live chat with Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, per iHeart, but it wasn’t until that summer that their relationship was publicly announced. “This is hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in,” Haddish previously gushed to Steve-O.
Common also opened up about their relationship during an August 2020 appearance on “Live With Kelly and Ryan.” “She’s a wonderful woman, a queen, and just a beautiful person,” he said. “I care for her a lot, enjoy her, and am grateful to have her in my life. Yeah, I’m happy!”
Haddish and Common dated for a year before People reported that the two had decided to split. On Fox Soul’s “Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored with Jason Lee” in December 2021, Haddish revealed that she’d found out about the breakup along with the rest of the world and had some hard feelings over the split. “I was disappointed,” she said of comments her ex made about the breakup on the same show. “I was very disappointed. I was like, ‘Oh, OK. ‘Cause that’s not what you told me, but OK.'”
That same month, Common told host Lee that the breakup came down to the pair’s busy schedules. “Once Tiffany and I got back on the move, it really didn’t allow for us to spend as much time and put as much energy into our relationship,” he said. He added that the two “came to an understanding,” saying, “This is what’s gonna be best for us — to still continue to love each other and be there for each other is to not be in a romantic relationship, because we won’t be able to give to that.”
Reflecting on their romance in an interview with The Washington Post, published on July 20, Haddish called it “the healthiest” and “funnest relationship” she’d ever had. She added, “It’s where I felt safest out of all the relationships I’ve ever had.” However, the comedian also told the outlet it was Common who ended things over the phone. “It wasn’t mutual,” said Haddish. “It was more him saying, ‘I think this relationship has run its course.’ And I was like, ‘OK. Like you gonna be a 50-year-old single man. Okay?'”
