Lupita Nyong’o and Selema Masekela have split up; she says ‘deception’ was a factor

On Thursday, Lupita Nyong'o revealed that she and Selema Masekela had broken up.

Nyong'o acknowledged that there were "much more important things going on in the world right now"

 in the opening of her moving Instagram post and stated that her thoughts were "with those who are deeply suffering."

The "Black Panther" actor continued, "I need to publicly distance [myself] from someone I can no longer trust...

 I am currently going through a difficult time because of a love that was cruelly and unexpectedly destroyed by deception.

When faced with the situation, Nyong'o initially thought she should "run into the shadows and hide" 

until she had emotionally recovered fully, but she later came to the conclusion that it was necessary to "face our pain so we do not spread it."

"The promise is that a tender heart is what births fearlessness, so they say. I really hope it is true,"
