Fans were hurt last year to hear that Grammy Award-winning stars Tiffany Haddish and Common had split after dating for over a year, citing their busy schedules. However, the “Girls Trip” star recently revealed that with her newly reinstated single status, she has been attracting several romantic hopefuls from the hip-hop industry.
While talking to host Seth Meyers during her guest appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the 42-year-old opened up about what she’s looking for in her next romantic partner, noting that she needed someone with a good credit score which shows signs of responsibility, she slipped in “I been attracting a lot of hip-hop kids of guys.”
Now, while the “Night School” star “don’t mind them wearing jewelry,” she expressed that she does take issue “if you own a bunch of diamonds, but you don’t own no land.”
“That’s a problem for me,” She added. “Land, then diamonds. ’Cause where does the diamonds come from? The land. So own the land, then get the diamonds. I got diamonds ’cause I got land,” the actress continued.
Still, it wasn’t the first time the California native expressed her preference for being gifted items that presented more long-term benefits than jewelry or expensive bags.
Months before their breakup, Haddish revealed that when the time came, she didn’t want the “Go” emcee to propose to her with a traditional engagement ring but rather an apartment building; the star said, “the deed to a duplex or a 36-plex,” to be exact.
During an appearance on the “SmartLess” podcast hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, Will Arnet, the “Like a Boss” star defended her request stating, “‘No, I’m not crazy. I’m smart. Because a marriage is a union of two businesses, and the whole point of coming together is to grow yourselves, but also grow a family and make sure they have something to inherit.’”
“So this ring, they can inherit the ring, but what’s that? $2,000, $3,000? Maybe $10,000, what is that? But if you get an apartment building that will increase in value, the children will always be able to go to school, we’ll always have something. If we get sick or something, we’ll have something to cash out and be able to take care of ourselves,” she added.
