AceShowbiz - Jennifer Hudson is seemingly off the market. Months after the "Respect" actress sparked romance rumors with Common, a new report suggested that the pair are truly "secretly dating."
Revealing the news was RadaOnline.com. A source first told the outlet that the 41-year-old singer/actress and the rapper/actor have "known each other for years."
"Things took a romantic turn while they were filming in Philadelphia over the summer," the source added. "When the day's shoot wrapped, they'd always find their way to each other's side."
The informant went on to note, "They've kept up their communication since shooting the movie. They get together whenever their schedules allow." The insider then shared, "Of course, he's known as a total flirt, but Jennifer feels there's no harm in that, and she’s having fun."
Jennifer and Common were first linked romantically in July 2022 as they were filming the upcoming action thriller "Breathe" together. That month, they were caught on a date in Philadelphia where they were filming the movie.
Later in August, the alleged couple was spotted attending a back-to-school event for the youth in Chicago. In a picture taken at the event, the "Glory" hitmaker was seen casually putting his hand on the "Dreamgirls" star's shoulder while she wrapped her arm around his waist as they posed with people at the event.
In November, Commo was seen picking up Jennifer from the filming site of her talk show in Burbank, California. In pictures obtained by Daily Mail, the pair did not show any PDA, but they looked close as they walked alongside each other, deep in conversation, before getting into Common's car together.
