Common & Angela Rye Rumored To Have Rekindled Their Relationship


Common & Angela Rye Rumored To Have Rekindled Their Relationship

Back in 2017, legendary rapper/actor Common and political analyst Angela Rye dated for nearly a year before officially ending their relationship in March 2018. If rumored reports are to be believed, it appears that the former couple may have reconciled and decided to give things another try.

According to reports (via Madame Noire), it looks like the relationship between Common and Angela Rye may be back on, as the two have been spotted multiple times together at recent events. On May 5th, Common, 47, and Rye, 39, were spotted together at The Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas listening to Bishop T.D. Jakes’ “Don’t Burn the Baby” sermon. Common was on hand at the service to promote his newly released memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word. After he went up to speak just before Jakes’ sermon, you can see the Chicago rapper return to his seat right next to Rye, in video of the event.

Earlier this week, the pair were also seen together in separate photos while in Harlem at Riverside Church where Common performed and held a book signing for his memoir. Now, these recent appearances could simply be two exes coming together as one supports the other’s new project. However, it could also be the beginnings of a rekindled romance.


In November 2018, Common was asked in an interview about Rye and he spoke very highly of her:

“First of all, I learned she’s just an amazing, incredible woman and that man, love is a beautiful thing. I already knew that, but that was just something I continued to learn with her. And that it’s also a process, and a journey, to get to understanding how to be full in a relationship, and be a full complete person as much as possible in a relationship. And I learned it’s just fun to have a partner who you really enjoy and can be really friends [with] and all the above. Yeah, Angela, she’s an incredible woman.”

Similarly, also in 2018, Rye said this of Common:

“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. May we all keep loving and living.”

Only time will tell if we can put Common and Angela Rye back on our list of #CoupleGoals, but by the looks of things it may be sooner than we think.
