Lupita Nyong'o is thought to have been seeing K'naan since September.
Lupita Nyong’o is apparently dating “humanitarian” rapper K’naan.
The Oscar winner has been linked to both the musician and Dallas Buyers Club star Jared Leto recently.
However, it’s apparently only the former she has been seeing and it’s thought to be thanks to their shared interests and passions.
Us Weekly claims K’naan and Lupita have been an item since September last year.
“She loves his humanitarianism,” a source told the website. “They’d both passionate about African issues.”
K’naan, 36, was previously married to Deqa Warsame, who he has two sons with, but they split in 2010.
Lupita is yet to be introduced to his brood.
“She hasn’t met his kids,” the insider continued.
The 12 Years a Slave star has been enjoying a huge amount of success since starring as Patsey in the Steve McQueen directed film.
She recently fuelled rumours she and Jared were an item by posting a series of selfies with the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman.
The 31-year-old and fellow Oscar-winner Jared have both been spending some time in Paris.
“Selfie @jaredleto Done (sic),” Lupita wrote alongside four photographs of them pulling a series of expressions.
Both Jared and Lupita have made light of the romantic rumours surrounding their friendship.
“I want to thank all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me. And also my future ex-wife, I’m talking to you Lupita Nyong’o!” he joked at the Independent Spirit Awards recently.
Lupita also addressed the speculation during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard," she told Ellen when asked about the Dallas Buyers Club actor.
Lupita has also been linked to her 12 Years a Slave co-star Michael Fassbender.
