Jennifer Hudson is leaving hints about her possible relationship with the rapper Common. On Tuesday, TMZ caught up with the EGOT winner and current television show host to ask her about the rumored relationship between her and Common. In the video interview, TMZ cameras followed Hudson who was dressed in gym gear and tossing a ball from hand to hand. When the interviewer mentioned that she and Common make the cutest couple ever, Hudson’s response was a simple, “Thank you.”
When the reporter pressed further, asking if she could confirm if they were in a relationship, Hudson side-stepped the question, replying instead with what she thinks of Common.
“He’s a beautiful man, I’ll give you that,” she said.
A Possibly Blooming Relationship
Jennifer Hudson and Common have been seen spending a considerable amount of time together. The pair were seen enjoying an alleged “romantic weekend” in London where, according to Daily Mail, they took a tour of the city and watched the new musical “A Strange Loop.” A show on which Hudson serves as a producer.
According to a source that spoke to Daily Mail, “Jennifer and Common have been trying to keep their relationship low-profile. There has been speculation for months regarding whether or not they are together, but the fact they’ve traveled all the way to London together just shows they’re very much an item.”
The source went on to allege that “They arrived to the show individually to avoid any commotion but away from prying eyes. They were very much in each other’s company.”
The rapper himself was also asked if they were dating while on “The Daily Show.” He neither denied nor confirmed the relationship.
“I’ll say, speaking of Chicago, she’s a Chicagoan, this amazing human being — I’ve always been inspired by her. She’s one of the most beautiful people I ever met on the planet. Incredible heart, and she’s just dope, man,” he said, sidestepping the question.
