Jennifer Hudson and Common spend ‘romantic weekend’ in London
Common and Jennifer Hudson have seemingly confirmed their relationship with a romantic weekend in London.
According to the Daily Mail, the couple flew to London together to see the Tony-winning musical “A Strange Loop.” Hudson, who is one of the musical’s producers, arrived separately from Common, but they reportedly posed for pictures backstage with the cast members.
“There has been speculation for months about whether or not they are together, but the fact that they traveled all the way to London together shows that they are very much a couple,” a source told the outlet.
“They arrived at the show individually to avoid any commotion, but away from prying eyes, they were very much in each other’s company,” the source added.
Representatives for both Hudson and Common did not respond to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.
Speculation about their relationship began in March when Hudson posted an Instagram wishing Common a happy birthday.
“Team Jhud, please help me wish one of the brightest lights, a Chicago and hip-hop legend, the one and only @common a very happy birthday today!” she wrote in the Instagram post.
The “Respect” star also shared a photo of herself and the “Invocation” rapper cuddling up to each other with big smiles.
Common reposted her birthday tribute on his social media.
“Thank you!” he captioned the post on his Instagram Story.
The two have been friends for some time and have worked together on the upcoming movie “Breathe.”
