Jennifer Hudson and Common Make Rare Public Appearance at NBA Game Amid Romance Rumors

The pair has sparked romance rumors since 2022.

Jennifer Hudson and Common took their rumored romance courtside!

On Wednesday, the Jennifer Hudson Show host and the rapper had a casual date night in Los Angeles, as they watched the Clippers take on the Toronto Raptors. 

In a rare move for the low-key couple, they sat courtside and were photographed together. Hudson, 42, kept things chic in a black leather coat and matching pants. For his part, the "Glory" rapper wore a matching denim set.

Although the two are both from Chicago, they were seen cheering for the Clippers, who defeated the Raptors 126-120.

Common and Hudson were first linked in 2022. In November, the talk show host and the rapper were spotted holding hands while making a special appearance at Joe's Pub for a one-night-only performance honoring renowned jazz vocalist Mikel Mwalimu-Banks.

Two days after their outing, Hudson was asked about her relationships status on CBS Mornings. Though she didn't name names, she assured Gayle King that she was taken.

"I am very happy, yes, ma'am," Hudson responded, giggling as she smiled at King and her co-hosts. "Boo'ed up? I think it's more sophisticated than boo'ed up... Definitely not an entanglement. That's for sure."
