AceShowbiz - Common and Solange Knowles sparked romance rumors. They were reported to hook up after the rapper attended a New York event where Solange was lauded for her "excellence at the intersection of arts and activism."
He was the first speaker at the Town Hall event Friday, February 28 before Beyonce Knowles' younger sister was introduced to the stage. They didn't pose together on the red carpet, but rumor has it, he was there as her date.
Solange was also supported by her mother Tina Knowles and stepfather Richard Lawson. Other notable guests included Andra Day, Leon Bridges, Jon Batiste, Mumu Fresh, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Angelique Kidjo, Alice Smith, Rapsody, and Lauren Von Der Pool.
Solange was the first-ever recipient for the Lena Horne Prize for Artists Creating Social Impact Event. The 33-year-old singer/songwriter was "beyond humble" to receive the honor. She received $100,000 and would use it for Project Row Houses.
Solange Knowles just came out of her second marriage. She and husband Alan Ferguson called it quits in 2019 after 5 years of marriage. They have no children together, but she has a teenage son with her first husband Daniel Smith.
Common is also single. He split from girlfriend Angela Rye in 2019 after an on-and-off relationship. "We just want different things," she said. "I'm leaning towards 'I want kids' and he was leaning towards 'I don't know.' I think when somebody tells you I don't know, they just tell you that because they don't really want to hurt you."
Following their split, he was linked to Quad Webb and Tiffany Haddish. Before Christmas, he was spotted on a holiday with Tiffany in Maui, Hawaii.
