Lupita Nyongo’s definitely got a thing for musicians.

As we all know, Jared Leto’s got the sexy rock star thing down.

Only when it comes to boyfriends, it looks like Lupita has another taste in music.

Move over Jordan Catalano, Us Weekly is reporting the Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner has another man… only this guy she’s had for some time despite those Jared hot hook-up rumors. (Although we wouldn’t blame her. )

Lupita has only had one music man she’s been dating since last September, Somali-born rapper K’Naan.

“She loves his humanitarianism. Their both passionate about African issues,” a source told the mag of the budding romance.

The 36-year-old R&B songwriter and poet has two sons from a previous marriage, but it’s still too soon to meet the family: “She hasn’t met his family,” added the source.

At least the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman isn’t taking the news too hard. He’s still even holding out hope with a sense of humor, calling the 31-year-old actress his “future ex-wife.”
