The threats started after the duo took their relationship public. The couple started dating recently and were seen together at September’s Creative Arts Emmys.
The political analyst said she has since been receiving annoying, harassing and threatening messages on her phone, social media and email, according to court documents reported by TMZ.
Rye said the derogatory messages even referenced locations she and Common visited privately over the summer.
“Yr dumb dead ass gonna be found in a river,” read one message sent Aug. 5. “Let me catch ya ass I’m put the paws on ya.”
Los Angeles police obtained search warrants to examine social media posts by the suspect, whose screen name has been identified.
The incident remains under investigation.

Michael Vick has reportedly paid off a $17.6 million debt he owed after filing for bankruptcy back in 2008.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Vick made a $1.5 million payment to creditors on Thursday, which was confirmed by Joseph Luzinski, an executive at the management consultancy firm that was the liquidating trustee in Vick’s bankruptcy.
“Paying 99 cents on the dollar, which he did, is remarkable,” Luzinski said. “It happens in, maybe, one out of 100 cases.”
Vick owed millions because he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy instead of Chapter 7. He opted to pay off the debt with future income, rather than liquidate his assets and not owe anything.
“I didn’t want to stiff people who never stiffed me,” Vick said in an interview with ESPN in 2014.
Vick earned almost $50 million after being released from prison for masterminding a dogfighting ring.
