*Common is addressing reports late last month that he and Regina Hall have been quietly dating since meeting on the set of “Barbershop: The Next Cut.”
During an interview with The Breakfast Club on Wednesday, he shot down those rumors, as well as reports that he wrote his track “Lovestar” about her.
“That’s just my people—that’s just my buddy,” he said during the interview with Power 105.1. “We never were in that space—you know, that’s just like somebody I care about as a friend. We worked together and right now I’m just single, so.”
Co-hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God continued to rib him about landing in the gossip blogs. “It was just like you know point blank just friends,” he said. “She’s funny, super cool, beautiful.”
The co-hosts also brought up the fact that Hall said she “had a man” when she was on the show.
“I don’t know,” Common responded. “She probably does, but that’s my buddy. I’m single, so you know.”
