Lupita Nyong’o and Hollywood star, Joshua Jackson sparks dating rumors

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and Hollywood stalwart Joshua Jackson have sent tongues wagging after being spotted on a romantic walk, fueling speculations of a growing romance.

The Hollywood actor, 45, and the Black Panther actress, 40, were not only seen strolling hand in hand but also running errands at a local market.

The sightings by TMZ come on the heels of their shared time at a Janelle Monáe concert in mid-October, where they were seen enjoying each other’s company with friends.

The dating rumors add a new layer of intrigue as both Lupita Nyong’o and Joshua Jackson recently underwent public breakups.

Joshua Jackson’s four-year marriage to actress Jodie Turner-Smith ended, with Turner-Smith filing for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

Sources revealed that the decision to end the marriage was initiated by Turner-Smith, who deemed it an “unhealthy marriage that made her unhappy.”

Lupita Nyong’o confirmed the end of her one-year relationship with boyfriend Selema Masekela on October 19, 2023.

She shared a heartfelt message on social media, expressing her empathy for global issues and then delving into a personal revelation.

Without explicitly naming anyone, she revealed the necessity to share a personal truth and distance herself from an individual she could no longer trust.

“At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust…” Lupita Nyong’o wrote.

The actress went on to describe her current emotional state, characterized by heartbreak resulting from a love that was suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception.

She candidly admitted the temptation to retreat into the shadows and hide, only to reemerge when she felt strong enough to declare:

“Whatever, my life is better this way.”

Lupita Nyong’o reflected on the correlation between the magnitude of her pain and her capacity for love.

Lupita is yet to speak about the viral photo.
