Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o found each other after heartbreak.

In October 2023, Jodie Turner-Smith filed for divorce from Jackson after four years of marriage. That same month, Nyong’o revealed that she and ex-boyfriend Selema Masekela split after dating for less than a year.

One day before going public with her breakup, Nyong’o was spotted with Jackson and a group of friends attending a Janelle Monáe concert in Los Angeles. After news broke of the duo’s outing, Turner-Smith raised eyebrows when she shared a cryptic quote on her social media.

“An unhealed person can find offense in pretty much anything someone does. A healed person understands that actions of others has absolutely nothing to do with them,” the upload read. “Each day you get to decide which one you will be.”

Two months later, Us Weekly confirmed that Jackson and Nyong’o were an item. In February 2024, Nyong’o opened up about her decision to keep her romance private.

“That was very, very sage of me. I’m going back to those days, by the way,” she said to Net-a-Porter. “Our purpose in life is to love. And so you have to get back in it.”
