Jennifer Hudson, Common Continue to Spark Romance Rumors
Jennifer Hudson and Common are sparking even more romance rumors after Common was spotted picking Hudson up from her talk show on Sunday. The pair is starring together in an upcoming movie called Breathe.
Jennifer Hudson, Common Rumored to Be Dating
Over the summer, rumors swirled that Hudson and Common were dating after they were spotted having dinner together in Philadelphia. This was around the time the two actors were filming a movie together called Breathe.
This week, the rumors were brought up again after the Daily Mail shared photos of Common picking Hudson up from the set of her talk show in Burbank, California. The pair can be seen walking side by side before driving off in Common’s car.
In September, Common showed his support for Hudson’s new talk show on Instagram, posting a photo of the former American Idol star in front of a sign advertising the premiere. He wrote, “You looked amazing up there. So Pure. So True. And really really moving.”
Hudson Denied the Rumors Earlier This Year
In September, ahead of her talk show’s premiere, Hudson spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the rumors surrounding her and Common. She seemed to deny that they were romantically involved, emphasizing that they were co-stars.
“People create their narratives of it and it’s like, OK, you know, how you feel,” Hudson shared. “We shot a film together and he played my husband. We gotta eat in between those moments.”
Hudson and Common have known each other for years before filming their new movie together. In 2014, they collaborated (along with Lupe Fiasco) on the song “Remission,” which they performed at a Stand Up To Cancer telecast.
Common was previously in a relationship with actress Tiffany Haddish. They split last year. Hudson was previously engaged to WWE wrestler David Otunga, with whom she shares a son. Hudson and Otunga split in 2017.
