Love will make you do some crazy things…..
A couple years ago when all that drama was going on between Common and Drake, it was pretty obvious it was over Serena Williams. Common and Serena had just broken up and Drake came in right after trying to wife her up. Both rappers later exchanged words through their music, but it isn’t until now that Common decided to confirm why the beef started.
In an interview with VladTV Common said,
“For me, I think it was an emotional thing. Meaning, I was feeling like, at that time, I think it was the Drake-Serena situation — I ain’t know what was going on with that. And I ain’t know if he was throwing things, shots at me. You know, this my ex, and we kinda, you know, going our separate ways. Unfortunately, the war might have been over a girl, even though at the time I never said that.”
“But it wasn’t totally that,” he added. “It was more or less kind of like, man, do you respect me? ‘Cause I actually like you as an artist; that’s what I was thinking about Drake. Then it eventually became where I think he was like, Look, man, I feel you disrespecting me, too.”
“I look back on it and say I’m glad it never escalated to a physical thing. Now, it’s nothing but love.”
Serena Williams knows while all of this was happening she was just sitting back smiling, enjoying making Common’s fine behind jealous. BTW, I always thought Common was sexy but I didn’t realize how much women love him. While attending the SiriusXM Essence festival panel, Common stopped by and the ladies went nuts!!!!
