Tiffany Haddish has never been one to hold back.
The always outspoken comedian and actress gave an extensive interview with The Washington Post, in which she opened up about everything from her breakup with Common to the eight miscarriages she suffered. “I have a heart-shaped uterus, it won’t hold anything,” she said at one point in the play, noting that she had kept her struggles private until now because she didn’t want to be treated “like a wounded animal.”

Elsewhere in the profile, Haddish revealed a diagnosis of endometriosis and the fact that she is now hesitant about the prospect of adopting. Although she took parenting classes last year in preparation for motherhood, she said she was hesitant now, mainly because of her schedule. As the piece makes clear, despite a year that brought a “TMZ nightmare about a grim and bizarre trial,” Haddish is busier than ever.

Haddish was far less successful in romance, another topic she broached candidly. She described her recent relationship with rapper and actor Lonnie Rashid Lynn, better known as Common, as “the healthiest [and] funniest relationship” she’s ever had, but at some point suggested that she start withdrawing. According to the profile, there was a framework of key events, including a birthday party for Barack Obama and Common’s own birthday, which she says he didn’t invite her to.
In the end, Common, who was unavailable to comment on the WaPo piece, reportedly called to break up with her over the phone. “It wasn’t reciprocated,” Haddish said. “It was more like him saying, ‘I think this relationship has run its course.’ And I was like, ‘Okay. Like you’re gonna be a 50-year-old bachelor. Okay?’ As the profile author notes, Haddish still holds out hope that she’ll find the right man for her.
