During an appearance on Fox Soul’s Hollywood Unlocked With Jason Lee Uncensored, said that his and the 42-year-old actress/comedian’s relationship was “heavy and loving,” adding, “it probably was the most mature relationship I have been in … meaning the communication, the respect, just all around.”

He also said that he and Tiffany while they were able to “navigate” through the pandemic together, things changed when they “got back on the move.”

“It really didn’t allow for us to spend as much time and put as much energy into our relationship. I don’t think the love really dispersed … we weren’t feeding the relationship … neither one of us is gonna stop. We both care about our crafts and what we do,” Common explained. “We care about love too and partnership, but I think the energy that has been put into our careers and continuing to want to do the things that we do for ourselves and for people … it was hard for me to balance all of that and keep the relationship fed.”

Common went on to say that he and Tiffany “came to the understanding that this is what’s gonna be best for us. To still continue to love each other and be there for each other is to not be in a romantic relationship because we won’t be able to give to that. I don’t want to be one foot in, one foot out.”

“It’s not about anybody else or another relationship because that’s not where my heart and head is,” Common continued. “It’s really honestly, it’s actually committing to so much work that we do. It’s hard when the other person is working just as much, to actually give time and love and nurture into the relationship.”

Also in the interview, Common gushed over Tiffany, saying she’s “one of the best-hearted and most authentic and caring people that I’ve met in life. That’s what made me love her and be in love with her and want to be in a relationship with her and grow with her.”

It was revealed back in late November that Common and Tiffany had split up after more than a year of dating, with a source sharing that their busy schedules was a big factor in their breakup.

Several days later, Common penned a sweet tribute to Tiffany in honor of her birthday, which you can read here.
