Lupita Nyong’o is opening up to her followers about someone she had to remove herself from due to “deception.”
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Nyong’o shared with her followers her story about the breakup.
“There are much more important things going on in the world right now, and my thoughts are with those who are deeply suffering,” the note started. “At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust.”
Although she did not mention any names, fans speculate that she is talking about her partner Selema Masekela. The first made their relationship social media official in Dec 2022.
“I am tempted to run into the shadows and hide, only to return to the light when I have regained my strength enough for me to say, ‘Whatever, my life is better this way,’” Nyong’o continued in the post. “But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love. And so, I am choosing to face the pain, cultivating the courage to meet my life exactly as it is, and trusting that this too shall pass.”
She concluded her message by bidding her followers with a bit of advice.
“Let’s face our pain so we don’t spread it,” Nyong’o said.
