It looks like Common and Jennifer Hudson are finally ready to publicly confirm their relationship.
Common will be a guest on “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” and he is expected to open up about his love life.
“Let’s get down to business, Mr. Common,” Hudson playfully says. “I’m a host, and so I have to ask you this question, because everybody always wants to know this. Are you dating anyone?
The three time Grammy Award winning rapper, replied saying he’s seeing “one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met.”
“She’s smart. She loves God. She has something real down to earth about her. She’s talented. But I set my standard kind of high because she had to have an EGOT,” he says, never naming Hudson but ticking off highlights of her career. “She had to win an Oscar on her first movie. I set my standard high. She had to get her own talk show.”
Later on the show flashes video of Usher serenading Hudson at a Dec. 2 concert in Las Vegas as her seatmate Common looks on, and a photo of the pair cozily sitting together at a Bulls game Dec. 30 at the United Center.
Clearly impressed by high-achieving women, Common over the years has romanced singer Erykah Badu, tennis great Serena Williams, actor Taraji P. Henson and comedian Tiffany Haddish.
