It was rumored around the time Lupita Nyong’o got her Oscar that she was dating Somalian rapper K’naan but now sources claim the actress is back on the market again and she was reportedly spotted getting flirty with actor Jared Leto at an after party for the SAG Awards.
US Weekly writes:
Meanwhile, another source confirms to Us that Nyong’o is single after splitting from her rapper boyfriend K’naan.
The insider close to Nyong’o tells Us that the 12 Years a Slave actress was the one to break off her relationship from K’naan. Their split happened last year, the source adds.
Meanwhile, the eyewitness at the Meiomi Wines-sponsored bash tells Us that Leto was making moves and “majorly flirting” with the Brooklyn beauty. Earlier that evening, last year’s Oscar winners for Best Supporting Actress, 31, and Actor, 43, both presented onstage at the 21st Annual SAGs, where their chemistry was palpable — so much that it sparked reaction from social media fans.
The party observer adds that the Dallas Buyers Club actor “was a whirlwind” at the West Hollywood hotspot. “He came in and spoke to Harvey [Weinstein] for a second, than raced right for Lupita,” the insider tells Us. “He hugged her and started whispering to her quietly.”
The unattached actress was receptive to Leto’s attention, following his lead as he “dragged her right to the dance floor.”
