Lonnie Lynn was born on March 13, 1972 at the Chicago Osteopathic Hospital in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, the son of educator Mahalia Ann Hines and former ABA basketball player turned youth counselor Lonnie Lynn Jr. After being featured in the Unsigned Hype column of The Source magazine, he debuted as a solo artist in 1992 with the single "Take It EZ", followed by the album Can I Borrow a Dollar? With the 1994 release of Resurrection, Common Sense achieved a much larger degree of critical acclaim, which extended beyond Chicago natives.Lynn's parents divorced when he was six years old, resulting in his father moving to Denver, Colorado. The album sold relatively well and received a strong positive reaction among alternative and underground hip hop fans at the time.
In November 2012, the two men wound up visiting the hospital for injuries they inflicted on each other and the brawl ended with them getting restraining orders against each other.
It was said that Martinez started the fight, at one point even threatening to kill Aubry. While the split was said to be amicable and there was simply no more gas in the relationship’s tank, it was alleged that the incident with Gabriel Aubry was quite common, and the split came from Martinez’s refusal to have his , the two are having fun together and Webby appeals to Berry’s “weakness for bad boys,” while also making her feel younger (an age-gap relationship will do that).
This marriage came after first being wed to pro baseball player David Justice in January 1993 before their June 1997 divorce, and singer-songwriter Eric Benét, whom she married in January 2001 and officially split from about two years later..
Theirs appeared to be a pretty traditional celebrity marriage with the exception of one instance in which Martinez came to blows with model Gabriel Aubry, whom Berry was seeing before him and was currently involved with Berry in a custody battle over their daughter.
Following the popularity of Resurrection, Common Sense was sued by an Orange County-based reggae band with the same name, and was forced to shorten his moniker to simply Common.
Initially scheduled for an October 1996 release, Common finally released his third album, One Day It'll All Make Sense, in September 1997.
Halle Berry actually has more than a few celebrity relationships under her belt, including an abusive one that cost her most of her hearing in her left ear; she has yet to name the man, simply stating that he is famous.
Her most recent marriage to Olivier Martinez was her third.
The album took a total of two years to complete and included collaborations with artists such as Lauryn Hill, De La Soul, Q-Tip, Canibus, Black Thought, Chantay Savage, and Questlove – a future fellow member of the Soulquarians outfit.
The album, which made a point of eschewing any gangsterism (in response to questions about his musical integrity), was critically acclaimed and led to a major label contract with MCA Records.
In addition to releasing One Day, Common's first child, daughter Omoye Assata Lynn, was born shortly after the release of the album.
