Jennifer Hudson celebrated Common’s 51st birthday with a sweet Instagram post amid dating rumors, but fans warned the singer to steer clear.
“Team Jhud pls help me wish one of the brightest lights, a Chicago and hip hop legend, the one and only @common a very happy birthday on today!” Hudson, 41, wrote in an Instagram post on Monday.
The “Respect” star also shared a photo of herself and the “Invocation” rapper cozying up to one another and flashing big smiles.
Common reposted her birthday tribute to his social media.
“Thank you!” he captioned the post on his Instagram Story on Monday.
Fans quickly gathered that Hudson could be confirming speculation that she and Common are an item.
“Is that a ‘Soft Launch Insta Offical‘ 😉😉😉,” one person asked.
“Is this a confirmation or naw?” another pressed.
“Y’all are cute together,” a third fan gushed.
However, others cautioned the “Dream Girls” actress against dating the hip hop legend, with some even labeling Common as “emotionally unavailable.”
“Her new boo? I hope not, she can do better. Don’t get me wrong he’s a great person, but he doesn’t commit and he’s hurt several. But happy birthday,” one critic claimed.
“This man has commitment issues please don’t be another piece in his jigsaw puzzle,” a second person agreed.
“You better not Jen!!!! No he always gets out icons and leaves them on friendship status., This man’s end foal is not marriage. RUN!!! Unless you just having fun,” said another.
“So are you his latest it gurl? Don’t get caught up sis in the game,” added one more.
Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, was most recently in a relationship with Tiffany Haddish, 43, for nearly a year before ending things in November 2021.
He has also reportedly dated a slew of famous women including Erykah Badu, Taraji P. Henson, Serena Williams and Angela Rye.
The “Just Wright” star shares 26-year-old daughter Omoye Assata Lynn with ex Kim Jones, whom he dated in the ’90s.

Meanwhile, Hudson was previously engaged to 42-year-old David Otunga — with whom she shares 13-year-old son, David Jr. — though they broke up in 2017.
Hudson’s public birthday message to Common seemingly confirmed the rumors that they are dating, though their reps did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Whispers of the pair’s relationship started circulating back in 2022, but Hudson played coy about the claims.
“People create their narratives of it and it’s like, OK, you know, how you feel,” she told “Entertainment Tonight” last September when asked about the dating buzz.
She added, “We shot a film together and he played my husband. We gotta eat in between those moments.”
Then in January, Radar Online reported that the Chicago natives had been dating for months and the pair further fueled the romance rumors when they were spotted on a date night at Nobu in Malibu in February.
