Jennifer Hudson wishes Common a happy birthday and fans say they are in a relationship

Jennifer Hudson’s rumoured romance with Common has fans closely following her every move on social media.

The daytime talk show host recently gave the fellow Chicago native recognition on his birthday, Tuesday, March 13, in a sweet post on Instagram, Atlanta Black Star reports.

“Team Jhud pls help me wish one of the brightest lights, a Chicago and hip hop legend, the one and only @common a very happy birthday on today!” she wrote in the caption.

The Just Wright actor reshared the post to his Instagram Story with a simple note, “Thank you.”

Since December when speculation that the friendship between the two Oscar winners turned romantic cropped up after they were reportedly spotted on a date in Philadelphia, the rumour mill has continued to buzz.

Hudson’s supporters wished the “Finding Forever” rapper a happy birthday like she requested.

But there are those who wondered if Hudson’s special birthday shoutout was the singer’s way of informally confirming the rumours.

Common was most recently involved with actress Tiffany Haddish, after sparking dating rumours in the spring of 2020.

By the end of the summer, their relationship was confirmed, but sadly they dated for a year before parting ways in late 2021.

In the past, the 51-year-old was also linked to Angela Rye and Serena Williams, the latter of whom he courted for three years between 2007 and 2010.

He was also romantically linked to Erykah Badu from 2000 to 2002. He has one child, a daughter named Omoye, from a previous relationship and has never been married.

Meanwhile, Hudson was previously engaged to former reality TV personality David Ortega for nine years.

The former couple split in 2017 after a decade together. Two years later, the wrestler and actress finalised custody details regarding their only child, David Jr.
