Sources told Us Weekly that Lupita and K’Naan have been dating since September.
“She loves his humanitarianism,” an insider told the mag. “They’d both passionate about African issues.”
K’naan, 36, already has two sons from a previous marriage to pharmacy technician Dega Warsame.
A friend mentioned that the singer and Nyong’o aren’t rushing things yet.
“She hasn’t met his kids,” the friend said.
Rumors lately claimed that Lupita and Jared Leto were more than friends after he called her his “future ex wife” during his acceptance speech at the Independent Spirit Awards.
“When I read these rumors, they’re so detailed that even I start to question whether they’re true or not,” Nyong’o said on The Ellen Show in February.
