Lupita Nyong’o Has A New Boyfriend

Guess we have to give up on our hopes of a swirl match between Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto yet again.

The Oscar-winning VOGUE cover girl has a new boyfriend!

US Weekly got the exclusive on this one:

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has been dating GQ Style fashion editor Mobolaji Dawodu “for six months,” a Dawodu pal reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

The Kenyan-raised actress, 33, and the tastemaker — his website says he’s “informed the visual language of cosmopolitan life and style for more than a decade” — were introduced through mutual friends in the fashion world, adds the friend.

Nyong’o and Dawodu, who has a young daughter, are clearly on the same fashion page. In a June 12 Instagram he shared with his nearly 6,000 Instagram followers, they posed in coordinated denim and orange-hued outfits.

Since becoming Instagram official, Dawodu, formerly an editor at Fader magazine, Details and, has let pals in on his relationship. Says the friend, “He’s discreetly told people they are dating.”

Ironically Mobolaji styled Jared Leto for his last GQ cover story… He’s also the brilliant guy behind that beautiful Marley spread we featured a few weeks ago.

They make a cute couple and his daughter is adorable! As long as Lupita is happy, we’re happy!
