COMMON admitted that he tells comic girlfriend Tiffany Haddish when her jokes are NOT funny and refuses to “fake laugh.”
The two had actually kept their relationship under wraps until this year.
Common – whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. – appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and talked to the singer about his blooming relationship with the Girls Trip actress.
When Kelly, who is going through a divorce right now, asked him if it was tough to date Tiffany because he could become insecure of his own jokes, the rapper said: “I mean, I’m definitely funny but in a corny way. I’ll say corny jokes.
“But it’s not hard to date a comedian but I don’t try to keep up with her jokes, even though I throw mine but she’s just in another level.
“It does encourage me because sometimes she’ll say some jokes that are not as funny and she’s courageous enough to do it so it makes me more inspired to say some.”
When Kelly further asked if he was really honest with her when she tried out some funny routines on him, he said: “I gotta be truthful with her and caring. I’m caring but I’m honest.
“Like I’m not gonna let her go out if I think something is not fresh and not say nothing. And if a joke is not really funny, I’m not going to fake laugh, I’m not like that.”
Back in August, Tiffany opened up about her relationship with Common and told Steve-O that she’s in love with him.
The comedian turned actress revealed that the two had actually met while they were filming the movie The Kitchen but at the time, she was more focused on her career than her love life.
She revealed:”We became friends but it wasn’t anything sexual or anything like that – my eyes were set on something else.”
However, as time went by, she decided to start dating and things suddenly got a little hot and bothered.
The actress – who recently shaved her head – recounted.”I had been talking to Common and he comes to play Spades with me and my friends, and at this point, our friendship was getting more than friendship but not quite because we were quarantined and we were FaceTiming all the time.
“And then he got tested for everything and I got tested for everything and we’ve been f**king.”
However, their relationship is way more than just sex as she finally confirmed they were dating.
She said happily: “This is my first time ever dating a celebrity and being in a relationship.
“This is hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in. I’ve lost 20 pounds since I’ve been in this relationship.
“I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it. I’m just way happier and it’s, like, knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back.
“It seems like he does anyways, and I love it. I love him.”
Tiffany and Common were first linked back in March when Tina Knowles-Lawson – Beyonce’s mom – called them a “beautiful couple.”
