Common and Angela Rye have broken up, the political commentator announced Thursday. "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," Rye told Page Six. "May we all keep loving and living."
The rapper and the activist began dating in the summer of 2017, making their red carpet debut at the Creative Arts Emmys in September. "There's a definite connection with Angela Rye," Common said on Bevy Smith's SiriusXM radio show, Bevelations, in October. "She's a wonderful woman. I will just say, I am dating. I'm happy right now—and she is an incredible human being."
