Lupita Nyong’o Sparks Dating Rumors After Being Spotted Holding Hands With New Man
Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and “Dawson’s Creek” alum Joshua Jackson have sparked dating rumors after being spotted on a seemingly clandestine grocery run in Los Angeles.
The pair arrived at Erewhon, a popular Los Angeles grocery store, together on Monday. In an attempt to avoid attention, Lupita tried to duck out of sight when the car stopped, but was unsuccessful. Undeterred, Joshua continued the charade of a solo outing, entering the store first, while Lupita followed suit a few minutes later.
Their coordinated efforts to evade cameras, coupled with their recent history, have fueled speculation that they may be more than just friends. Joshua and Lupita have known each other for years, and their connection appears to have taken a romantic turn in October when they were spotted at Janelle Monáe’s concert.
While the concert itself displayed no public displays of affection, the timing was intriguing. Notably, Lupita had ended her relationship with longtime boyfriend Sal Masekela just that day, promptly erasing all traces of him from her Instagram. Additionally, TMZ had reported a week prior that Joshua’s marriage to actress/model Jodie Turner-Smith had ended after four years.
Whether their grocery run was a genuine attempt at privacy or a calculated publicity stunt remains unknown. However, their recent social media activity and coordinated attempt at incognito shopping have undoubtedly piqued the interest of fans and media outlets alike.
Only time will tell if Lupita and Joshua will officially confirm their relationship, but their actions speak volumes. Their apparent desire for secrecy suggests something more than casual friendship, leaving the public eager for further developments and potential confirmation of their romance.
