Common and Tiffany Haddish are ‘doing wonderful’ despite recent breakup rumors.
The 48-year-old rapper heaped praise on his girlfriend Friday while appearing as a guest on The Karen Hunter Show on SiriusXM.
‘We’re doing wonderful. She’s a really incredible human being, and the more I get to know her, I just see how dynamic she is as a person. How intelligent, how selfless she is, how she stands up in Hollywood for black women, Common said.

‘I’m learning. You know what I mean? … She’s also fun. She’s fun. And ultimately …I like good-hearted people, and Tiffany has a good heart at the end of the day,’ Common added.
The rapper and actor also praised Tiffany’s work to promote race equality in the entertainment industry.
Speaking on Sirius XM, he added: ‘She takes it like the law. It’s not on back – she’ll be like, ”If there ain’t no black people on the set, or no black people working on this, then I’m not going to do it. Or, why can’t we go to these black makeup women?”
‘And I think it takes that type of courage and mouthpiece and rawness to get the equanimity that we’ve been looking for – the equality that we talk about. Especially within – any area of life – but then the Hollywood structure, sometimes you have to shake them up and say, ”Hey, y’all, this is what it has to be”,’ he added.

I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it. I’m just way happier and it’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. It seems like he does anyways.
