Who is Tiffany Haddish dating? A look at her love life with Common after double divorce from William Stewart
In August 2020, Haddish confirmed her relationship with the 48-year-old rapper and actor Common
Once again, Tiffany Haddish will introduce six of her favorite comedians to Netflix viewers around the world with the second season of the Emmy-nominated stand-up comedy series 'Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready' which is set to release on February 1. Haddish has garnered many fans after the release of the first part of the show on August 13, 2019.
Tiffany Haddish was born on December 3, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. She is known for her unflinching candor and disarming authenticity. She shot to stardom with her no-holds-barred performance as Dina in the raunchy comedy 'Girls Trip' (2017). Her father left the family when she was a toddler and her mother suffered brain damage in a car accident. Haddish has spent several years in foster care before going to live with her grandmother as a teenager.
Her first biggest break occurred in 2006 when she was a contestant on the television comedy competition show 'Who’s Got Jokes?' Haddish gained a larger audience with recurring roles on the satire comedy series 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' (2013–14), starring Kevin Hart, 'Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong' (2014–15) and 'The Carmichael Show' (2015–17).
She became a sought-after guest for talk shows, appearing on Chelsea Lately, hosted by Chelsea Handler; 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and 'The Arsenio Hall Show'. Here is everything you need to know about the comedian's love life:
Is Tiffany Haddish dating someone?
Last year in August 2020, during an appearance on "Steve-O's Wild Ride!" podcast, the actress and comedian confirmed her relationship with the 48-year-old rapper and actor Common, whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn. "I am in a relationship," she said before specifying who. When asked if she was dating Common, she replied, "Yeah. We're twins now," referring to her shaven head.
Haddish explained that she met Common while they were both working on the 2019 film 'The Kitchen'. "He was kind of like my love interest (in the movie) … and we kinda became friends," she said. "Then I went into this period of dating … and at this point our friendship was getting a little bit more than friendship but not quite because Covid-19 happened and we were like quarantined. So then we're like Face-timing all the time," she added.
She continued, "And then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything and yeah we've been (expletive)." Haddish also said this is her first time being in a relationship with a celebrity. "I've (expletive) one, but this is my first time like dating one, being in a relationship with one," she said.
"This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in." She continued, "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 anyway. And I love it, I love him."
When Haddish tied the knot with William Stewart "twice"
Tiffany Haddish said she was married to William Stewart twice. As Haddish postulated in her 2017 memoir titled 'The Last Black Unicorn', she married and divorced the same man twice. The claim has been contradicted by several outlets, including TMZ, who prompt that it's more likely that Tiffany filed for divorce twice.
As it stands, it's unknown whether Haddish and her ex-husband, army veteran Stewart, had two wedding ceremonies. Either way, she tied the knot with William in 2008. She reportedly filed for divorce twice, in 2011 and 2013.
As Tiffany revealed in 'The Last Black Unicorn', her relationship with Stewart was far from flawless. As she claimed in the book, the five years they spent together were filled with intense misunderstandings, fights and behaviors she described as physical and psychological abuse. As Haddish alleged in a chapter of the memoir titled "The Ex-Husband," Stewart exhibited stalker-like behaviors, while he also attempted to choke her on at least one occasion.
Stewart sued Haddish and publisher of 'The Last Black Unicorn', Simon & Schuster, for $1 million, for libel, slander and defamation in 2018. "Be patient your blessings are coming [...] start to think positive so positive things can come your way. Because your blessings are waiting on you," Tiffany reportedly responded to Stewart.
The court trial was set to take place on April 20, 2020. According to POPSUGAR, no update has been published since, which might be due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
