Common - Badu Broke Common's Heart In Phone Call

Subscribe to Common alerts

Rapper/actor Common will never forget the day soul icon Erykah Badu broke his heart - she dumped him over the phone after falling for someone else.
The stars dated for two years before their split in 2002 and Common admits the break up hit him hard - because Badu was his first real love.
In an appearance on America's The Wendy Williams Show, he recalls, "She handed it to me. I was in my hotel room on tour and... she called me and was like, 'Hey, I don't wanna be in this relationship no more. I'm liking somebody else (sic).'"
Badu, who previously dated Outkast's Andre 3000, went on to have a child with another rapper, The D.O.C., but Common refuses to hold the harsh let down against the On & On hitmaker - and insists they are now good friends.
He says, "That was my first love and my first heartbreak, but it taught me a lot of things, and when it happened I kinda really got into myself and really learned about myself and I was able to move on, and now me and E is real cool (sic)."
Common also reveals he's close to another ex-girlfriend after ending his on/off romance with tennis star Serena Williams for good earlier this year (11).
He adds, "We're just friends now."
