Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto are reportedly dating. According to sources, Lupita “isn’t ruling out” a relationship with Jared, but she’s tired of his modelizing ways. The actors have been getting cozy at several red carpet events, such as the 2015 Oscars. Now that Lupita has split from her boyfriend, she’s been debating the idea of giving Jared a chance.
Nyong’o, 31, is willing to give Leto, 43, a chance, but there’s one slight problem. Hollywood Life has learned that the actress wants Leto to pursue her more.
“Lupita is totally up for a romance with Jared! She and her boyfriend K’naan split months ago and she’s definitely ready for a relationship with the right guy. She likes Jared … problem is that although Jared loves to flirt he doesn’t seem interested in taking it further than that. When they see each other Jared is so incredibly flirty always touching her and telling her how gorgeous she is. He even talks about taking her out but so far he hasn’t followed through.”
The insider added: “He says he’ll call, but then weeks and months go by before they see each other at another awards show.” It sounds like Leto isn’t ready to get into a serious relationship anytime soon. After all, he’s a known “modelizer” who loves to flirt with women.
Jared brought German DJ and producer, Zedd, as his “date” to the Oscars. “Zeddlena” fans were freaking out on social media when he was spotted without Selena Gomez by his side. The two were later reunited at the Vanity Fairy after party.
Hollywood Life also spotted Nyong’o and Leto at the Vanity Fairy after party. They stayed side-by-side almost all night, according to the source. The two also mingled with other A-list stars like Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Although both Lupita and Jared arrived separately, the two quickly found each other at the party. They stayed close to each other as much as possible. Lupita and Jared were also photographed often throughout most of the night. The rumored couple even congratulated Eddie Redmayne on his first Oscar award.
Nyong’o and Leto were also spotted talking in the audience during the live Oscars broadcast, along with Nyong’o’s brother. Some fans have been raving about how cute the two look together.
Lupita Nyong’o turned heads the other night in her Oscars dress designed by Calvin Klein. The Inquisitr reported that it was created from 6,000 pearls. Lupita admitted that the dress was actually quite comfortable and light enough to wear during the awards show.
