It seems that even the most talented and successful individuals are not immune to heartbreak. Mexican-Kenyan award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has recently taken to Instagram to announce her breakup with boyfriend Selema ‘Sal’ Masekela. In a heartfelt and lengthy post, she revealed that deception was the cause behind their split.
Lupita began by acknowledging the current state of the world and expressing her thoughts for those who are suffering. Despite the bigger issues at hand, she felt it was important to share her personal truth and publicly distance herself from someone she can no longer trust.
‘I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception,’ Lupita shared. The pain she is feeling is profound, but she refuses to hide in the shadows. Instead, she chooses to confront the pain head-on, knowing that it is a testament to her capacity for love.

While Lupita is going through this difficult time, she hopes that her openness about her experience will be helpful to others who may be dealing with heartbreak. It’s a reminder that even those in the spotlight face challenges in their personal lives.
Interestingly, Lupita’s announcement comes just a day after she was spotted attending a Janelle Monae concert with actor Joshua Jackson, known for his role in Dawson’s Creek. Jackson’s recent divorce filing by his wife Jodie Turner-Smith adds another layer of complexity to the situation.
