What We Know About Jennifer Hudson And Common’s Rumored Relationship
If this is your first sip of the Jennifer Hudson and Common tea, know that this isn’t the first or second-time fans have romantically linked them.
In September 2022, Jennifer shut down talks of dating the musician in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. At the time, they were filming for the upcoming film Breathe (2024) and were cast as husband and wife.
“People create their narratives of it, and it’s like, OK, you know, how you feel,” she says when asked about the rumors. “We shot a film together, and he played my husband. We gotta eat in between those moments,” she told ET.
The dating rumors came back around in February of this year after they pulled up to Nobu in Malibu together, per TMZ. In May, a photo showed them with their arms linked, walking in the Chicago suburb where JHud reportedly lives.
By August, Jennifer seemed a bit more open about speaking publicly on Common. She told a TMZ reporter “thank you” following a comment about them making a “beautiful couple.” Despite calling him a “beautiful man,” she did not confirm or deny being in a relationship with him.
Days before this most recent NYC photo surfaced, she spoke to Gayle King about being “very happy” in her relationship.
“Boo’ed up? I think it’s more sophisticated than boo’ed up… Definitely not an entanglement. That’s for sure,” Hudson said on CBS Mornings.
