Conscious rapper and super woke CNN correspondent and analyst Angela Rye have ended their relationship.
Folks began to speculate about the state of the couple’s relationship when people noticed that Rye and Common didn’t attend the Oscars together, though they were both in attendance. She was also absent at Common’s Toast to the Arts event.
Later, Rye confirmed the news to Page Six:
“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.”
The split was particularly shocking to some considering she defended him vehemently on CNN when another correspondent criticized Common’s Oscar’s performance.
I think it really does speak to the level of love she still has for the man. A ride or die even when the wheels fall off.
The couple went public as a couple in September 2017, when they appeared together on the Creative Arts Emmys red carpet.
People feel several ways about the split. Check out the reaction on the following pages.
