Angela Rye and Common have called it quits.

The CNN political analyst, 38, confirmed the news to Page Six, telling the site: “We have and will always be friends. He is an amazing human being, and I’m a much better person because he’s a part of my life. May we all keep loving and living.”

Split rumors began to swirl after Angela did not attend Sunday’s Oscars alongside her beau and additionally skipped the fourth annual "Toast to the Arts" event, which Common, 45, hosted.

The outspoken CNN analyst and Oscar-winning actor/rapper began dating in Summer 2017, making their red carpet debut at the Creative Arts Emmys in September.

A month later, Common confirmed their romance on Bevy Smith's SiriusXM radio show, Bevelations.

"There's a definite connection with Angela Rye," he gushed. "She's a wonderful woman. I will just say, I am dating. I'm happy right now—and she is an incredible human being."

Despite calling it quits, there seems to truly be no bad blood between the exes as Angela recently defended Common on CNN, after an NRA supporter called him out for his anti-NRA statements during Sunday’s Oscars.

Common has yet to publicly comment on their breakup.
