Lupita Nyong’o, aged 40, took to her Instagram on Thursday to share the news, explaining that trust had been irreparably broken.
Lupita’s announcement was candid:
She stated on Instagram.
She opened up about her heartache, admitting that love was abruptly extinguished by deceit.
Lupita acknowledged that a part of her preferred to keep the breakup private until the pain subsided.
However, she emphasized that sharing her experience and facing the pain head-on could inspire others going through similar heartbreak.
“They say a tender heart is the birthplace of fearlessness. I hope that’s true.
I’m sharing this to keep it real, in the hope that my experience may be of help to others grappling with heartbreak.”
Lupita had previously been very private about her personal life, choosing to focus on her work and family.
It’s worth noting this was Lupita’s first publicised romantic affair.
She has previously never shown off anyone she is dating like she did the 50-yer-old South African
However, in December 2022, she publicly confirmed her relationship with Selema by sharing a video of them participating in the ‘Click challenge,’ a trending Instagram activity involving outfit changes.
In embracing her pain, Lupita offers a powerful message:
facing heartbreak can lead to wisdom, and escaping it may mean missing valuable life lessons.
Lupita’s said openness serves as a reminder that, no matter the circumstances.
We should confront our pain rather than spread it, ultimately fostering resilience and fearlessness.
