Fresh off Lupita Nyong'o's Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress, a source spilled the beans on her dating life. Nope, no Jared Leto involved. Lupita has reportedly been dating Somali-born rapper K'Naan secretly since September.

Secret no more, of course, but the multi award-winning 31-year-old actress herself hasn't offered any confirmation.

K'Naan, who gained prominence for his single Wavin' Flag has two sons with now ex-wife Deqa Warsame, but according to a source, Lupita hasn't met the boys yet.

Prior to this, rumours had been circulating that 30 Second To Mars frontman and also first-time Oscar winner Jared was dating Lupita; a rumour further fuelled when he called Lupita his "future ex-wife" in his Film Independent Spirit Awards acceptance speech.

We've been stalking, ahem, we mean going through Lupita's Instagram photos since hearing about K'Naan to see if there are any photos of him, but no luck so far. It's either we missed him or the couple really, really knows how to keep things quiet. Don't leave us hanging, Lupita.
