Actor Joshua Jackson was spotted out with Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o on the heels of his split from Jodie-Turner Smith. On Oct. 18, 2023, cameras caught Joshua and Lupita at Janelle Monae’s concert in Los Angeles. In images obtained by TMZ, the pair are seen sitting next to one another, as they chatted during the show.
A day after the sighting, Lupita announced her breakup with her boyfriend, Selema Masekela. “At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust,” Lupita shared in a statement on Instagram. “I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception.” Lupita didn't disclose what caused the split, but her post suggests that there may be some bad blood between the two.
Lupita and Selema first went public with their relationship in December 2022, sharing the news in a since-deleted post on Instagram, per Us Weekly. Lupita and Selema have both removed all traces of their relationship from social media, marking the official end of their time together.
Joshua is also recently single, as Jodie filed for divorce on Oct. 2, 2023. As speculation about Joshua’s love life grows, some may be wondering who the actor has dated in the past. Here’s a rundown of his dating history and rumored romances.
According to E! News, Joshua had a brief romance with Katie Holmes in 1997. The pair were co-stars on the hit show Dawson Creek, which aired from 1998 to 2003. “I fell in love, I had my first love, and it was something so incredible and indescribable that I will treasure it always,” Katie told Rolling Stone. She went on to call Joshua one of her best friends, as she gushed over their time together.
Joshua reportedly dated Brittany Daniel for a short time in 1999, The Things reports. The pair met on the set of Dawson’s Creek, during Season 3 of the show. While they have never explicitly confirmed their relationship, Joshua and Brittany attended the 1999 Radio Music Awards together and walked the red carpet as a pair.
Years after his romance with Brittany ended, Joshua began dating actor Rosario Dawson. According to Us Weekly, Joshua and Rosario began dating in 2002 and split after almost a year together. A year after the two went their separate ways, Rosario began dating Sex and the City star Jason Lewis, while Joshua took a break from the dating scene.
Joshua dated Diane Kruger for 10 years, starting in 2006. The couple chose not to get married during their time together but remained in a committed relationship. “Marriage is important for the people it's important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious,” Joshua told Us Weekly in 2012. Following their split four years later, the pair promised to remain “friends,” per People.
