45-year-old Joshua Jackson, whose wife filed for divorce in October, is dating 40-year-old Lupita Nyong'o, reports the Daily Mail. Nyong'o became famous in 2014 thanks to the film "12 Years a Slave", for a supporting role in which she received an Oscar.
Rumors about the actors' romance first appeared in October, when they attended a Janelle Monae concert together. This happened shortly after Jackson's divorce from 37-year-old actress Jodie Turner-Smith and Nyong'o's separation from her boyfriend, TV presenter Selema Masekela, were announced. The tabloid's insiders said that "Joshua and Lupita's friendship eventually blossomed into romance."
"A romance gradually began between them. They had been close friends for a long time and Josh didn't want to ruin their friendship. But as they communicated more and more and dealt with their breakups, working through the issue together took their friendship to the next level. Now they have an intimate relationship. They are a couple. Joshua has a type, and Lupita definitely fits that type,” the source said.
Joshua Jackson and his ex-wife Jodie Turner-Smith met at Usher's 40th birthday party in 2018 and got married in December 2019. This was the first marriage for both. In April 2019, Jackson and Turner-Smith became parents. Previously, Jackson's most famous romance was his relationship with Diane Kruger - he dated her for 10 years.
