Common Breaks Silence On Jaguar Wright’s Sexual Assault Claims Against Him: It’s Not True
Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, has finally spoken out on the sexual assault allegations against him made by singer Jaguar Wright. During a recent interview on Philly’s Rise and Grind Morning Show, Common said he didn’t have any ill feelings towards Jaguar Wright, born Jacquelyn Suzette Wright-Johnson, but denied her claims. He said,
“Let me say this, man, God bless Jaguar. I really don’t have any negative thoughts towards her. I was surely disappointed and hurt when she said what she said about me because it wasn’t true. And I know people that have experienced sexual assault and that’s not anything to just say if it’s not true.”
“I also understand that she may be going through some things that I don’t understand. In all truth, I went through different emotions. I was like ‘Man why is she saying this? This is like, not true. How is this going to affect me?’ But then I started thinking ‘Man, I don’t know what she’s going through.’”
As previously reported, this past August Jaguar Wright came forward with claims that Common allegedly sexually assaulted her. The ‘Self Love’ singer accused Common of poking her in the mouth with his genitals while she was asleep. She said,
“I wake up its morning, I feel something poking me in my face and sh*t right, and it’s just poking me in my face. And I open my mouth, this ni**a, tryna stick his d**k in my mouth while I’m sleep. Lonnie f**king Lynn. Rashid, Common, whatever the f*ck you want to call yourself. That’s why I stop f*cking with him.”

After her claims against Common, Jaguar Wright made a public apology to Tiffany Haddish, who is dating Common.
Jaguar Wright posted a video to her Instagram page and said,
“There’s one person that I have not addressed directly, and mostly because, truth is I have a lot of respect for her. I think she is a wonderful comedian, I think she’s a great philanthropist.
I just got off of her page…I just scrolled through like a month or two, and I was just curious to see whether or not everything that’s going on, in Hip Hop and neo soul right now, is affecting her in an way right now because I know she’s in a relationship with unfortunately someone who became a target of my investigations.
I just wanted to say to Tiffany Haddish, I got all the respect in the world for you. We do have a mutual person in common, Luenell Campbell, Luenell has always spoke highly of you, and there’s not much that Luenell can say to me that I don’t take as Bible, so…
