Rapper Common and political commentator Angela Rye have ended their nearly year-long public relationship and are no longer dating.
There's no telling what caused the couple to split as of yet, but Rye said in a published statement, "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."
As reported by media outlets including PageSix, the former couple was last seen together at a Jan. 3rd premiere of The Chi https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/common-and-angela-rye-reportedly-break-up/ar-BBK3NDn. Rye did not accompany the 45-year-old singer/actor to the recent Oscar Awards where he was nominated for Best Original Song. Common won the award in 2015.
This is another failed relationship for the conscious rapper since he used to date tennis great Serena Williams who is now married with a baby.
