Lupita Nyong'o And Joshua Jackson Fuel Dating Rumors, Seen Holding Hands

Lupita Nyong’o and Joshua Jackson have once again fueled rumors that they are dating.

The actors were spotted holding hands while walking through Joshua Tree National Park in southeastern California, as seen in photospublished by several outlets on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, TMZ published photos of the two in a car, with Nyong’o seemingly ducked down in the passenger seat out of view, ahead of a trip to the grocery store in Los Angeles. They first sparked romance rumors in October, when they were seen together at a Janelle Monáe concert with a group of friends.

Representatives for Jackson and Nyong’o did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Nyong’o and Jackson have both separated from their previous partners in recent months.

Actor Jodie Turner-Smith reportedly filed for divorce from Jackson in October, after more than three years of marriage. They share one daughter, whom they welcomed in 2020.

Nyong’o, who had been in a relationship with sports commentator Selema Masekela, announced on Instagram in October that she was “in a season of heartbreak” due to “deception.”

The Oscar winner did not mention Masekela by name in that post, but she wrote that she was choosing to “face the pain” caused by a breakup.

“Let’s face our pain so we don’t spread it,” she wrote at the time.
