Lupita Nyong’o and Joshua Jackson ‘Officially Dating’.

Lupita Nyong’o is said to be officially dating Joshua Jackson.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress, 40, and former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ actor, 45, sparked dating rumors back in October after being spotted in a concert together. This came shortly after their respective splits from actress Jodie Turner-Smith, 37, and presenter Selema Masekela, 52, were announced.

Sources told DailyMail.com that their breakups formed a new friendship that turned into a romance.

“Things have slowly turned to romance between the two. They have been amazing friends for a long time and Josh didn’t want to ruin that.

“But as they’ve hung out more and more and dealt with their breakups, dealing with it together has added another level to their friendship. Now it is a physical relationship. They are a couple.” An insider said

The claim they are officially dating comes a day after the new couple were seen shopping together before driving off in a car together.
