Common and CNN correspondent and activist Angela Rye have called it quits.
Insiders pointed out that Rye “wasn’t on his arm at the Oscars” and, “she was also not at the fourth annual Toast to the Arts event Common hosted with the Ayars Agency.”
Rye confirmed the split saying: “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.”
Common performed the Oscar-nominated song “Stand Up for Something” at the awards on Sunday.
He and Rye started dating this past summer and were fixtures on red carpets together at events such as the Creative Arts Emmys, CNN Heroes gala and the premiere of Showtime’s “The Chi.”
