Today’s world offers an unimaginable variety of ways to communicate. It has never been so easy to stay in touch. With a lot of that communication being text-based, sometimes wires can get crossed along the way.

Misinformation and misunderstandings are just a couple of the side effects of our modern communication infrastructure. It becomes even more complicated for celebrities. It is not uncommon for celebs to use the media as an additional way to send personal messages.

That is why it isn’t surprising that sometimes miscommunications can cause major headaches for stars. That is the case for Common and Tiffany Haddish, who recently broke off their relationship. Common made comments about the breakup to Hollywood Unlocked. Tiffany says they don’t match what the rap veteran told her at the time.

“He might be the type of person that never really settles with somebody, maybe he’s like, you know, like a bee going from flower to flower to flower. I don’t know. I wish him nothing but joy and happiness, you know. He will always be cool.

I was disappointed. I was very disappointed. I was like, ‘Oh, OK. ‘Cause that’s not what you told me, but OK.'”

Common will now have to figure out how to clean up the mess. This is one of many times where a celebrity keeping their private affairs private would have benefitted both parties. Instead, Tiffany Haddish has now publicly called out Common as a liar. If only he had kept his mouth shut.

What do you think of Common saying one thing to the media and another to Tiffany Haddish? Let us know in the comments!
