Tiffany Haddish has confirmed she is dating rapper Common after months of speculation. 

The actress, 40, was quizzed about her romance during an interview for Steve-O's Wild Ride, where she revealed it is 'the best relationship I've ever been in'. 

Tiffany said: 'I am in a relationship', and when Steve-O asked if it was the musician, 48, she replied: 'Yeah. We're twins now.'

Tiffany continued: 'This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in. Knock on wood! I've lost 20 pounds since I've been in this relationship.

'I feel more confident in me and it's not him that's doing it. I'm just way happier and it's like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. 

'It seems like he does anyways. And I love it. I love him.' 

Tiffany also discussed what Common - real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr - thought of her newly shaved head, which she debuted earlier this month. 

'I've been talking about cutting my hair for years… he said it was beautiful. He's like, "Wow, you did it man. You've got a lot of courage. You look so beautiful. I love it."

'And I'm like, "Ahh, put your head on my head," Tiffany said.  

Dating speculation about the pair has been rife in recent months after they were spotted at a Black Lives Matter protest with Megan Thee Stallion in June. 

The actress told Steve-O how she met the rapper on the set of The Kitchen and then worked together on a charity project with Bumble at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Of how their relationship blossomed, Tiffany said: 'Then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything, and yeah, we've been f****g.' 

Tiffany revealed that she already got the go-ahead from Paul Schrader, writer/director of her upcoming film The Card Counter, which is set to resume filming this month in Mississippi.  

Production was halted back in March, after one of the cast tested positive for COVID-19, just five days from wrap.

The Kitchen star clarified she can just wear wigs on set, adding: 'I can wear wigs in real life too. I mean, I've done it for years.' 

She later posted another video after some of her followers raised concern over her motives for cutting her hair off.

Haddish assured them: 'Nothing is wrong with my brain, you guys. I’m not suffering from no emotional s***, nothing. 

'Anybody that knows me, knows me, knows that I’ve been talking about this for a long time.'
