Common and Angela Rye have broken up, Page Six confirms.
The CNN correspondent was noticeably absent from Common’s arm at Sunday’s Academy Awards, where he was nominated for Original Song for “Stand Up for Something.”
Rye confirmed the news with Page Six TV.
“We have and will always be friends, said Rye. “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.”
Rye was recently on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon where she got into a heated discussion about the NRA after another panelist called Common hypocritical about his concerns with the lobbyist group.
“The NRA is out of touch. They are in God’s way,” she said. “Common had it right. We didn’t need anybody to tell us that.”
