Common Says Erykah Badu Broke His Heart

Rapper Common is dishing on personal parts of his life including details of his two year relationship with Erykah Badu.

The Chi-town emcee recently taped an episode of The Wendy Williams show where he revealed that the seductive songstress broke his heart when she ended their relationship.

The rapper who recently released his “One Day, It’ll All Make Sense” autobiography, tells Williams that he got a phone call from the woman he dated from 2000-2002 saying it was over.

“She handed it to me. I was in my hotel room on tour and …she called me and was like, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be in this relationship no more. I’m liking somebody else. That was my first love and my first heartbreak.”

He also adds however that he and Badu are still friends and there are no hard feelings.

“It taught me a lot of things, and when it happened I kinda really got into myself and really learned about myself and I was able to move on, and now me and E is real cool.”

Badu previously dated and had her first child with Outkast’s Andre 3000 before having a child with rapper the D.O.C. in 2004, and a third childwith rapper Jay Electronica in 2009.

Before leaving the show Common also made mention of his most recent old flame Serena Williams saying, “We’re just friends now.”

    Maybe in years to come he will come to realize that she actually did him a favor. She’s already had three kids from three different well known performers. Doesn’t look good to me and she doesn’t seem to have a problem with the image she projects, not that she really has to, but fact is she also is a performer and was a very good one at that, so I don’t understand why she kept allowing pregnancy to take place when she had so much going for herself and I dnt believe any of these kids were planned but it is obvious that she definitely wanted to give birth once she became pregnant. I do not however, believe she was ready to be a mother. I feel she would still be in the spotlight doing her thing (such great talent she possesed) had she not given birth to so many kids when the music industry demanded so much of her time. I also can’t fathom any woman actually making a concious decicison to give life to mutiple children from multiple fathers. Common, you have been spared and you should see it just that way and thank God and count your blessings. As you grow older and become wiser and lust and love of becomes less impotrtant, (but more of what you want in your life to make life complete and make you happy) you will understand how lucky you were to have her dump you. Granted it wasn’t nice the way she went about it and I’m sure it hurt and then you got over it and you should have. In just a few years from that day she broke off your (you all) relationship, you will saying boy was I lucky and I’m glad she did. Was she actually your first love or first girl?
