Lupita Nyong’o confirms split from boyfriend



Lupita Nyong’o has posted an emotional statement on Instagram confirming her split from boyfriend Selema Masekela.

The Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave and Black Panther actress began dating sports commentator Masekela towards the end of 2022, and in her announcement accused him of “deception”.

It read: “There are much more important things going on in the world right now, and my thoughts are with those who are deeply suffering. At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust..


“I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception. I am tempted to run into the shadows and hide, only to return to the light when I have regained my strength enough for me to say, ‘Whatever, my life is better this way’.

“But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love. And so, I am choosing to face the pain, cultivating the courage to meet my life exactly as it is, and trusting that this too shall pass.”

The Hollywood star seemed to find some positivity amid her devastation, though, hoping that “the knowledge of my experience might be useful to someone else out there experiencing the grip of heartbreak who is poised to try and escape from the pain and miss out on the wisdom that comes from it”.
