Tiffany Haddish finally opened up about her relationship with Common after months of speculation by the media.
Her first statement of Common assured everyone that she is happily in love.
“This is hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in,” she gushed on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast. “I’ve lost 20 pounds since I’ve been in this relationship. I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it.”
The Emmy winner noted she’s “way happier” than ever before.
“Knowing that I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back—it seems like he does anyways—and I love it,” she continued before dropping the L-word. “I love him.”
Tiffany Haddish was first approached about her and Common’s relationship when she danced around the rumors about her and Common in a remote interview on Today with Hoda Kotb in April.
“Get out my bedroom, Hoda!” the actress quipped back after Kotb asked her if they were dating. “Now it’s just me in my bedroom and all of my clean clothes. I piled all the clean clothes up next to me so it feels like somebody’s in the bed.”
The couple used virtual dating as a form of communication at the time. It was later confirmed the two were quarantining together.
Haddish explained she met Common while they were both working on the 2019 film “The Kitchen.”
“He was kind of like my love interest (in the movie) … and we kinda became friends,” she said. “Then I went into this period of dating … and at this point our friendship was getting a little bit more than friendship but not quite because COVID happened and we were like quarantined. So then we’re like Face-timing all the time.”
She continued, “And then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything and yeah we’ve been (expletive).”
According to Tiffany Haddish this is the first time she has ever dated a celebrity.
“I’ve (expletive) one, but this is my first time like dating one, being in a relationship with one,” she said. “This is hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in.”
She continued, “I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it. I’m just way happier and it’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. It seems like he does anyway. And I love it, I love him.”
Not to mention when asked about her bald head and how Common felt about it, Tiffany Haddish says he loved it.
