Angela Rye and Common recently broke up claims a new report from BET, despite the fact they were previously described as a match made in heaven by some of the rapper’s fans. As fans of the pair know, they dated intermittently from the summer of 2017 until the fall of 2019.
In August 2019, the performing artist revealed he went to therapy to fix some of his issues, and subsequently wound up with Angela Rye, although, they split up by October of the same year. Previously, it was rumored by gossip tabloids and social media users that he was in a romance with Tiffany Haddish, the Nightschool star, but it was never confirmed.
Either way, it appears as though Angela is getting used to a life without Common, as she recently explained why she and Common broke up permanently. On her eponymous podcast, the CNN political analyst revealed she and the rapper called it off due to a difference in lifestyle and aspiration.
For one, she wants to have children, whereas Common doesn’t. Following their split earlier this year, the star claimed: “We just want different things.”

If #AngelaRye is trying to make her ex #Common jealous, we wouldn’t be surprised if it works. 👀 She posted this pic on Christmas with #KarimWebb – a franchise owner and father of 3 she often calls “her brother”. One of Karim’s businesses is the Hilltop coffee shop in Inglewood that #IssaRae recently invested in.
The political commentator claimed the realization came after she told him she was going to take her godson around more often. According to Rye, she told him she was interested in having children, but Common’s response was, “I don’t know.”
Angela explained that, in her view, when someone says they’re “don’t know,” when facing a major life decision, it really means they just don’t want to hurt your feelings. Rye dished on their relationship-changing conversation, in which Common said he didn’t know if he wanted to have kids.
Rye went on to add that they’re both the type of person who really knows what they want, so their split was inevitable on some level.
With that said, there is no bad blood between them. She described Common as a great person. Currently, rumor has it she’s in a relationship with Karim Webb, the restaurant owner.
