Exclusive Lupita Nyong'o DatingLupita Nyong'o does NOT have a new boyfriend, despite tabloid reports claiming the contrary!

Lupita Nyong'o Dating New Boyfriend?! New Photos Spark Speculation Of A Romance

MediaTakeOut was the first outlet to spread the rumor. "NEW COUPLE ALERT!!! Lupita Is Photo’d Out In CANNES . . . Canoodling With A BROTHA!! (He Looks YOUNGER Too . . . Lupita Is A COUGAR)," blared a headline on the gossip site. The folks over at MTO continued, "Lupita was photo'd getting COZY with a man in Cannes, France. She's there for the Cannes Film Festival." That was pretty much the gist of it -- super convincing, MTO (psych)! But RumorFix checked with a rep for the A-Lister who filled us in on the supposed "mystery man." "That’s her hairstylist Vernon. Not her boyfriend," Lupita's rep reveals to RumorFix exclusively with a chuckle. This isn't the first time we've heard dating rumors involving Lupita. The star has also been linked to Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, K'Naan, Jared Leto, and most recently rapper Common -- none of which have been confirmed boyfriends. spl1026145_011 spl1025341_017
