Lupita Nyong’o and Michael Fassbender are NOT dating, despite an inaccurate report from The Sun.

On Wednesday, the British tabloid claimed the 12 Years A Slave co-stars “secretly dated last year and now we hear things are hotting up again.”

“They have an incredible connection after the whirlwind of filming 12 Years A Slave and then promoting it together,” a so-called “source” told the outlet, alleging, “In September during the Toronto Film Festival they had a brief romance.”

The supposed Sun “insider” further claimed, “Now Michael is intent on showing how he wants to get serious again and made a point of bringing his mum Adele to the Oscars rather than a date.”

“Lupita’s the most in-demand woman in the world at the moment so it will be hard to make it work but their chemistry is undeniable,” added the paper’s “source.”

Actually, it will be “hard to make it work” simply because Nyong’o and Fassbender are not a couple — period.

A source close to the pair tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the story is “100 percent false.”
