Rapper Common and CNN correspondent Angela Rye are over.
According to Page Six, sources close to the couple noted that Rye “wasn’t on his arm at the Oscars” and, “she was also not at the fourth annual Toast to the Arts event Common hosted with the Ayars Agency.”
Following the heated reaction to that development, Rye confirmed their split to “Page Six TV” in a statement, adding, “We have and will always be friends. He is an amazing human being, and I’m a much better person because he’s a part of my life. May we all keep loving and living.”
The duo started dating last year and made their relationship public; they attended red carpet events together, including the Creative Arts Emmys, CNN Heroes gala and the premiere of Showtime’s “The Chi.”
In November, Common who had previously dated Serena Williams, gushed about Rye at the Root 100 gala, saying, “I feel like I have to be more intelligent with the work and strategise more . . . I have to listen more and go out and do more work.”
Now, they are over; although Common has speak about this.
