The sexuality of Kenyan-Mexican Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong'o is being questioned on social media following the emergence of controversial photos and videos on social media.
This comes after the 36-year-old was captured on tape getting cozy with musician Janelle Monae, sparking lesbian rumors.
In the videos and images shared online, Lupita and Janelle are seen dancing together during an event dubbed Met Gala 2019, an annual fundraiser in support of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York.

During the dance, the Black Panther actress gets affectionate with Janelle, who is openly gay.
The incident has left online users speculating that the two may be in a romantic relationship.
"I don't really get invested in celebrity relationships, but if Janelle Monae and Lupita Nyong'o are really dating, I might die," a Twitter user named Sierra Siwa said.
Others claim Janelle was trying to get her former girlfriend Tessa Thompson 'jealous.'
"My theory is that Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monáe broke up and are both trying to make the other jealous with Lupita Nyongo," says Bianca.
The two are yet to respond to the rumors.
