In the wake of her Oscar win, Lupita Nyong’o is fuelling the rumour mill by hanging out with Toronto rapper K’naan. (Because in Hollywood, if two famous people are spotted together, it means they’re getting married, naturally.) Yesterday, the Daily Mail posted some fuzzy pictures of the pair arm-in-arm in L.A.—and (gasp!) he was holding her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, which Nyong’o won earlier this week for her performance as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave. Really, though, all we see is a friendly embrace (so far). Bring in the body language experts.
