We hope Lupita ain’t homewreckin’! Last week reports surfaced that Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has been dating Somali-Canadian rapper K’Naan after photos of the two were published that showed them the morning after the Academy Awards. Well we put a few feelers out on the situation and discovered K’Naan has a family back in Toronto!

We did a little investigating and were able to confirm that K’Naan was previously married to Deqa Gacal Warsame. Deqa is also an East African who was born in Somalia and raised in Toronto. Now here’s the tricky part. We learned that when the couple separated it was because of infidelity — on his part.

We couldn’t get the specifics on who he was caught creeping with, but we’re sure hoping the same thing doesn’t happen to Lupita! Deqa and K’Naan divorced in 2010, currently have a very good relationship as friends who now peacefully co-parent. Have a look at their beautiful family.
