Back in September, Common & CNN reporter Angela Rye decided to officially make their relationship public after showing up to the Creative Arts Emmy and posing on the red carpet together. However since then, it appears Angela has been receiving death threats sent her way and TMZ reports some if it is tied in with her dating Chicago emcee & actor Common.

According to court docs, Rye said she's received annoying, harassing and threatening messages on her phone, social media and email. She says at first they were just annoying and derogatory, but then got scary and serious when the sender got more specific.

Angela and Common reportedly became an item and couple over the summer and cops say some of the messages she received had referenced locations the two visited that were not publicized, which is scary in itself. But then on August 5, Rye got an email that included the following: "Yr dumb dead ass gonna be found in a river" and "Let me catch ya ass I'm put the paws on ya.”

As a result, LAPD obtained search warrants to dig through the sender's social media. As of right now though, the Threat Management division is reportedly on the case and looking into it, but not much else is known to the public.

TMZ didn’t clarify if the death threats had anything to do with Common, or if he was just coincidentally with her on these dates over the Summer, but regardless stalkers and haters on that level ain’t nothing to play with. Hopefully this issue is resolved as soon as possible.
