Ava’s rumoured relationship with Common is the closest we’ve come to learning about her personal life. Rumours about a relationship between Ava and Common started when they starred together in Ava’s 2014 film Selma. Centrictv.com reported that;

“The two met in 2014 on the set of Selma. And as of late our spies have spotted them out together in Hollywood. Our sources have seen them exhibiting date-like behaviour holding hands, walking around a few low-key spots in LA.”

The outlet went on to state that the couple was spotted enjoying sushi and attending movies together. It further claimed that Common and Ava were spotted kissing and strolling about in Common’s vehicle. It is unclear whether this rumour is true, but Common and Ava do make a cute couple.

Ava didn’t confirm the rumours, and we aren’t sure whether the relationship still exists.
