To say Erykah Badu had Common wide open when they were dating would be an understatement, so it’s not hard to believe their split left him completely heartbroken.
In a recent interview with People, the award-winning rapper and actor opened up about love and relationships and how one relationship left him without an appetite and another sent him to therapy.
With Erykah Badu, that was my first love where you’re just open and floating.
When we split, I was 27 or 28. I was in a haze, just going through the motions. It was hard to eat.
It wasn’t her fault, the relationship just didn’t go forward.
I was in another breakup after that that was heavy. That one honestly is what sent me to therapy.
I wonder if it was Common’s break up with Serena Williams that landed him in therapy…
Either way, I’m glad he’s good now.
