Was Lupita’s Relationship With K’naan Confirmed?

Lupita Nyong'o The Hollywood Reporter 2

There goes Lupita Nyong’o snagging another magazine cover again! This time the Oscar-winning beauty graces The Hollywood Reporter with fellow actress Michelle Dockery and personal stylist Micaela Erlanger. Micaela is the talented woman behind all of our girl’s red carpet looks!

Meanwhile, it looks as though Us Weekly is crushing the hearts of Lupita fans everywhere, including Wendy Williams and Perez Hilton, who had a lot to say recently about her allegedly dating K’naan.  According to the magazine, Lupita is coupled up with the Somali-Canadian rapper and has been for the past six months!

The New York-based couple has bonded over their similar interests. “She loves his humanitarianism,” says a pal of the “Wavin’ Flag” singer, 36. “They’d both passionate about African issues.” K’naan has two sons with pharmacy tech ex-wife Deqa Warsame. And the rapper’s pal notes that Nyong’o and K’naan are taking things slow. “She hasn’t met his kids,” the friend reveals.

It’s crazy how much shade folks have been throwing since the photos of Lupita and K’naan surfaced, including an article in the Latin Post that referred to him as a gang member who has been arrested 12 times.  Never mind his humanitarian work!  He has been working hard over the past few years to use his voice to raise awareness on some of the devastation that takes place in Somalia, and he recently shared a story of how he escaped death at age 12 after a soldier opened fire on him and his classmates and killed three of his friends.

The bullets hit everyone but me. A few months later, my immediate family and I were lucky enough to get seats on the last commercial flight out of Somalia.

It seems as though Hollywood would much definitely rather see Lupita and Jared hook up (they are both Oscar winners, how cute would that be), so to appease the masses, Lupita threw a curve ball this week after she posted selfies with Jared, which were snapped the night of the Prada show in Paris.

Beauty accompanied by substance is an unjust weapon against a man’s armor.
