CNN’s fiery political analyst Angela Rye is receiving death threats in connection with her boyfriend, rapper Common.
She told TMZ the strange threats began after she and her boyfriend started dating this summer.
Rye said she’s received annoying, harassing and threatening messages on her phone, social media and email. She says they were just annoying and derogatory at first, but got scary when the sender got specific.
Then, on August 5, she 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.”
TMZ reports that the LAPD received a search warrant to go through the sender’s social media and are currently investigating.
