COMMON: Accused of Sexual Assault by Jaguar Wright

COMMON: Accused of Sexual Assault by Jaguar Wright

Common is the latest rapper to get caught up in the #MeToo movement.

Singer Jaguar Wright, who’s worked with artists like The RootsAl Green and Jay-Z, alleges that Common once sexually assaulted her while she was sleeping. During an Instagram Live session, Wright told a story about a night that he pressured her for sex. She was exhausted and just wanted to sleep, so she said no. She even kept her clothes on when she went to bed because she’d been assaulted in the past. Wright says she woke up when Common tried to force oral sex.

She also had some thoughts on the rapper and actor’s dating life. “You was with Serena [Williams], that didn’t work out. You was with whoever, you always got whoever’s hot dating you, but the [stuff] don’t last long, He ain’t been right since Lauryn Hill left him anyway.“

Jaguar adds that after she rejected Lonnie, he moved on to Erykah Badu, who was so jealous she allegedly made the song “Booty” about Jaguar.

Hot Takes:

  • Will he address these allegations or is he hoping they’ll just quietly go away?
  • Damn, even Common’s a creep?
  • Tiffany Haddish might want to reconsider that relationship.
  • She deserves the benefit of the doubt, but Common also deserves the chance to respond.
