*Rapper/actor Common is setting the record straight regarding reports of his recent split from tennis star Serena Williams, declaring himself “definitely” single.

Reports of their breakup began surfacing last month during press interviews for his new film “Just Wright,” but just last week, he had mentioned plans to visit Serena in Paris while she was competing in the French Open.

Today, Common put speculation over his relationship status to rest, telling Chicago’s Fox News, “I am single. I am a single man, definitely.”
