LOS ANGELES, March 7 (UPI) -- Lupita Nyong'o was seen cuddling up to Somali rapper K'naan amidst rumors that she could be dating Jared Leto.

The 31-year-old Mexican-Kenyan star was photographed sharing a hug with K'naan -- real name Keinan Abdi Warsame -- outside the Live! TV studios on Monday. The picture shows the rapper holding Nyong'o's Oscar in one hand as he holds her with the other one.


Nyong'o won her first Academy Award Sunday for her role as Patsey in the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave.

Over the past month there's been a lot of speculation regarding Nyong'o's relationship with Jared Leto after he called the actress "his future ex wife" during an acceptance speech and because both actors were spotted at the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion Week right after winning their golden statuettes.
