Jennifer Hudson Reveals She Is ‘Very Happy’ Amid Common Dating Rumors

Speculation about the nature of the artists’ relationship began to swirl in July 2022.

Jennifer Hudson's love life remains a hot topic, but she continues to be tight-lipped on the identity of the mystery man.

During an interview on Monday's broadcast of "CBS Mornings," the Grammy winner discussed where her emotions stand in the romance department these days, as reported by Entertainment Tonight.

“Word on the street is you’re very happy,” co-host Gayle King asked. "I am very happy, yes ma'am," the singer replied, though she stopped short of name-dropping who the person is.

“In a very nice relationship with someone who shall remain nameless,” King added.

"So you boo'ed up”? Nate Burleson inquired.

“I think it's more sophisticated than boo'ed up,” she said while smiling.

"It's a situationship?" Berkus continued while asking if they were in an entanglement.

“Definitely not an entanglement. That's for sure," Hudson noted.

Dating rumors began to spark in July 2022 between the talk show host and Common after they worked together on the set of "Breathe," slated to be released in 2024.

In 2022, Hudson addressed the speculation between her and the "Glory" rapper.

"People create their narratives of it and it’s like, OK, you know, how you feel," she explained to ET. "We shot a film together and he played my husband. We gotta eat in between those moments."

Whether they are just friends or more, the artists have been photographed spending time together.

Over the summer, they reportedly traveled to London together, per Page Six, and in February, they were spotted having dinner at Nobu in Los Angeles.

Hudson has been careful not to play into the speculation; Common also has remained silent on the topic.

In July, while appearing on Today, Al Roker asked Common about the dating rumors, which garnered a huge smile and chuckle from him. Although not addressing if they are an item, he said, "I'll say, speaking of Chicago, she's a Chicagoan, this amazing human being — I've always been inspired by her," he replied.

"She's one of the most beautiful people I ever met on the planet. Incredible heart, and she's just dope, man…seeing her evolve from an actress and singing, she's doing so many things and now her talk show, she's amazing, she's inspiring. I'm grateful to know her."
