Tina Lawson may have unintentionally outed Tiffany Haddish and Common's alleged relationship with just two words she wrote on Tiffany's comments section.
If Tiffany Haddish and rapper Common are trying to hide something that’s brewing between them, Tina Lawson may have let the cat out of the bag. It seems her comment in a recent post of Tiffany hinted at the secret romance.
Rumors of Common and Tiffany hitting it off have been swirling since last year but neither ever confirmed they were dating. They’ve been seen several times together including during the NBA All-Star game in February. Cameras caught them seated at the court side.
But on Common’s birthday, when Tiffany took to her Instagram to greet him, Tina chimed in. And the two words she wrote may have said it all.

The post featured a photo of Tiffany and Common holding up paintings they made. Tiffany captioned it, “Happy Birthday to My Friend @common!!! I Love that you are willing to go on @groupon adventures with me. #paintandpour plus food.”
The innocent post suddenly turned controversial when Beyonce’s mother wrote “Beautiful couple” in Tiffany’s comment section. Regardless if she spilled the tea intentionally, it was enough to claim headlines.
Tiffany is known to be close to Tina who gifted her a beautiful Bible with a diamond-studded crucifix during her Bat Mitzvah last year. Tina was present for the celebration which saw the actress being baptized after learning her father was Jewish.
"While Tiffany is famous for speaking her truth including her infatuation for certain actors (like Michael B. Jordan), she remains mum about the real score between her and Common.

Tiffany is also a friend of Tina’s daughter, Beyonce, or at least her defender. She famously dished about witnessing an unnamed actress biting Beyonce and lauded the singer for keeping her from retaliating.
“To me she is a Shero and a Great person,” Tiffany had written on Instagram in reference to the incident. “No matter what she has a Unicorn that has her back.”
While Tiffany is famous for speaking her truth including her infatuation for certain actors (like Michael B. Jordan), she remains mum about the real score between her and Common. The rapper called it quits with his longtime girlfriend, Angela Rye last year.
He once sought advice from Michelle Obama about finding the perfect woman and learned there was no such thing. Instead, she advised him to look for the woman who has the real core values and learn to compromise when he sees an imperfection.
Maybe Tiffany is that woman today and the “beautiful couple” is still trying to keep things low while they learn more about each other.
