Celebrated Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o got fans emotional after announcing her painful breakup with South African TV host Selema Masekela. In a heartbreaking post shared on her Instagram page on October 19 2023, the Mexican-Kenyan actress best known for her role in Queen of Katwe revealed she called it quit because she was deceived. “I find myself in a season of Heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception, “she wrote, without mentioning her boyfriend’s name. Barely a year ago, the Black Panther Star actress went public with her relationship with the US-based sports commentator over the 2022 Christmas holidays, despite her love for privacy. Without actually saying much, the Daughter of a Kenyan Governor said plenty in this viral video, where she and her boyfriend participated in a popular online challenge.
This convinced many that the 40-year-old star was indeed in love and confident that it would stand the test of time. While the relationship lasted, Lupita was quite vocal about her feelings to the point where she publicly penned a birthday message to Selema and described him as a “sunshine human.” Unfortunately, in a shocking twist, the once-upon-a-time Sunshine Human has become responsible for the Oscar Winner’s broken and bleeding heart. Is there more to the sad breakup than Lupita is letting on? How has her 52-year-old ex-boyfriend reacted? And how are fans of the former power couple taking this news?
