Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o are indeed dating. Is it true love or a trauma bond?

The 45-year-old “Dawson’s Creek” star was spotted casually walking hand in hand with the 40-year-old Wakanda Forever baddie on Wednesday in Joshua Tree, California.

This latest spotting comes hours after Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o were spotted leaving a Los Angeles grocery store together on Tuesday. 

The possibility of a budding romance between Joshua and Lupita hit our radars in October when they were spotted at a Janelle Monáe concert in Los Angeles with friends. 

But, now it appears our Spidey Senses were right! 

One thing is for certain, Joshua moves faster than cooties in a preschool classroom in these relationship streets. 

And he definitely has a type.

Queen & Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith JUST filed for divorce to end her nearly four-year marriage to Joshua Jackson in October. 

She cited “irreconcilable differences” for the demise of their union. 

Jodie famously told the story of how she and Joshua met in 2018 at Usher’s 40th birthday party and things moved pretty quickly.

When I first met my husband, we had a one-night stand. We’re in a two, three-year one-night stand now,” she said during an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Joshua Jackson told Andy Cohen that he knew Jodie Turner-Smith was his wife when she “walked in the room looking like that.” 

Ironically, in April of 2018, Lupita Nyong’o attended the Broadway production of “Children of a Lesser God,” and posed for photos with Joshua Jackson, who starred in the play, and Kenny Leon, Angela Bassett, and Lauren Ridloff backstage.

Now, in the year of our Lord 2023, I’m going to need Joshua to read the room.

Sir, you can’t start a new relationship with Lupita, and your Instagram is still flooded with photos of you and Jodie.

Meanwhile in Wakanda… Lupita Nyong’o took to social media in October to announce her split from her boyfriend Selema Masekela

The Oscar-winning actress said that she was “in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception.”

Perhaps Lupita and Joshua linked up at the Heartbreak Hotel. 

Folks have taken to their Twitter timelines to react to Joshua Jackson dating Lupita Nyong’o.

Do you think this is truly an authentic and budding relationship, a rebound romance, or a good old-fashioned trauma bond?
