Tiffany Haddish and Common are flying in dating bliss. That’s according to the signer who spoke with The Karen Hunter Show, reporting the couple is “doing wonderful.”

“She’s a really incredible human being, and, you know, the more I get to know her, I just see how dynamic she is as a person,” he told the radio program. “How intelligent, how selfless she is, how she stands up in Hollywood for Black women.”

The couple had only chance encounters before working together on the 2019 film, The Kitchen. That work experience drew Common’s attention to the actor. “Then we worked on a film together, and that time I was definitely like, ‘Hey, what’s up? How you doing?’ And she was like, ‘Nah, we good, we friends,'” he said.

As time passed and the two super stars spent more time around each other, a romantic relationship started to bloom. “I like good-hearted people, and Tiffany has a wonderful heart at the end of the day,” the singer described his partner.

Common also gave praise to Haddish’s awareness of social issues. ‘She’ll be like, ‘If there ain’t no Black people on the set, or no Black people working on this, then I’m not going to do it.’ Or, ‘Why can’t we go to these Black makeup artists?’” Common relayed.

“And I think, it takes that type of courage and mouthpiece and rawness to get the equanimity that we’ve been looking for — the equality that we talk about.”

2020 has been challenging for Tiffany who contracted the coronavirus. She spilled the details speaking with the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
