Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o didn’t hold back on Thursday when she announced her split from boyfriend Selema Masekela in a pointed Instagram post that mentioned betrayal and deception.
“At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust,” she wrote.
“I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception.”
Masekela, a surfer and sports commentator, and Nyong’o confirmed their relationship on social media last December, but it’s unclear how long they had been together.
Just a day before her Thursday post, Nyong’o had set off speculation online about a new romance after she was spotted attending a concert with a group of friends that included the newly divorced Dawson’s Creek star Joshua Jackson.
