Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is an amazing actress, obviously, but the one aspect of her life she never really talks about is her personal life.

In 2014, Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto were rumored to be in a relationship. This was because during the award show for the independent sport award, Jared had won the award for best supporting actor. During his speech, he had referred to Lupita as “his future ex wife”.


“my future ex-wife, Lupita, I’m thinking about you.”

She later addressed this as a Moana friends banters and reveals that her and Jared shared an intimacy but it was nothing out of the ordinary.

Lupita Nyong’o and Micheal B Jordan

In 2018, during the press tour for Black Panther, fans started to speculate that Lupita and Micheal B Jordan were in a relationship.

This was because of how cozy they looked during the press conference.

“Me and Lupita? I love her to death. Beautiful girl, very talented. People write their own narratives — I don’t have any control over that.”

Janelle Monae

In 2019, Janelle Monae and Lupita started to make the media news and they were alleged to be dating.

While they’ve been close friends since the 2015 MET Gala, in 2019, when bringing Lupita up the stage, Janelle Monae has referred to her as “My Queen”.

She also posted a photo of her and Lupita dancing together while she held her on the waist.
