Rye acknowledged their breakup with Common in December 2019. They had been together for almost a year. She explained the breakup on her podcast, titled “On One With Angela Rye,” by saying that they had different opinions about starting a family.
“We were together for about a year this time, and we broke up […] because we just want different things.
I’m leaning towards ‘I want kids’ and he was leaning towards ‘I don’t know,’ and I think when somebody tells you they don’t know they don’t really want that, they just don’t want to hurt you.”
Rya was interviewed by Jalen Rose of Page Six’s “Gone In 60 Seconds” feature in June 2022.
In 1994, the Denver Nuggets signed Rose, a first-round draft pick, to a contract worth more than $10 million over six years. After being traded to the Indiana Pacers, where he signed a seven-year, $93 million contract, he was released from his previous commitment.
