Actors Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o dismissed rumors linking them as a romantic couple. The Black Panther stars have insisted they are "just friends" ever since they started working on the 2018 blockbuster superhero film.

"We're good friends, honestly, we've known each other a really long time and respect each other and I love this girl to death," Jordan tells Entertainment Tonight.

"It's flattering at the end of the day," Nyong'o adds. "I think it's such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and for us to find each other as actors and get to work together; it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other's company on and off screen."

Michael and Lupita mocked the romance rumors by sharing a steamy kiss in an elevator at the Golden Globes Awards on Sunday. They also included their Black Panther co-star Danai Gurira in on the flirty fun, but the joke misfired when both Danai and Lupita lost their balance and hit the floor when the elevator door closed.

"This is the thing, first of all, Danai, she commits to everything, so she really committed to that swoop and it took me by surprise," Nyong'o adds. "We were both in stilettos, so we ended up on the ground."

Lupita has been tight-lipped about her personal life, refusing to discuss who she's seeing. Her silence - plus the lack of swarthy men in her life - sparked rumors that she is a lesbian. Both Lupita and Michael are rumored to be members of the LGBT community.

In 2017, Lupita addressed the rumors surrounding her personal life, by insisting she would never address them.

"You can ask, but you definitely won't get an answer," she told U.S. Vogue when asked if she was in a relationship. "There have been rumors and rumors and rumors about my love life. That's the one area that I really like to hold close to my heart."

  • Mind Yo Business

    They didnt have to say anything. Nobody believed that rumor. He prefers his women to look like baby formula ?????

  • Bashi22

    Too African for Michael B he wants none black girlfriends or wives. Michael need to fulfilled the Hollywood black males prerequisites. All curly hair babies with light skin.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    WHOOO THOUGHT THEY WERE DATING? LOL! Please...and Ion like the way Lupita's hair or outfit is looking for these damn "Golden Globe Awards"...Meh...

  • Karen Brady

    PUH-LEAZE.. Ya'll can troll wipippo with that mess cuz WE know this man likes Beckys.

  • Blak

    they are obviously not each others type and that rumor is incredibly laughable

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Lupitas too dark for them colorist ninjas. Some african obsessed white man is probably gonna snatch her up. Our lost

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Baby.formula.
    ?????????
    Whew chilay the paleness ?

  • WhoKnew

    So incredibly laughable. They must be promoting a new movie and doing the old publicity stunt "we're together".

  • hi-liter

    It would be so dope if the rumors were true.

  • Andrea Williams

    I think Ms. Lupita might be a tad too dark for him IF he is not into men because my gaydar keeps trying to light up about him.

  • HelloToni

    Such a classy response! I love her.

  • LYRICS

    You took the words right out of my mouth...…..

  • GuestSTAR

    I believe them.

  • ShWa

    They sure would make a very nice looking couple.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Does he still have a roommate?

  • ShWa

    LOLOLOL

  • SpillyNillie

    Ummm..he likes the palm colored girls....

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Well I don't even need to read this post to tell you this isn't true. I mean we all know he likes the white meat. She is soooo beautiful!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    They seem like good friends, and Michael B. might date White or non-black women, and don’t want to be cancelled by some.

    Look how long Jaime Foxx has kept his attraction for white women low-key. Katie Holmes is the first one, he’s gone this public with, given her own fame!

  • stav

    But we already knew this...Next!

  • NewNew

    Low key? All of Jaime's kids are with white women. The only time he's seen with black/brown women was in the Gold Digger music video or when he's playing a character. The only reason he's been low key with Katie Holmes is because of Tom Cruise/Scientology.

  • Desi

    Ain't she got too much melanin for him????

  • NewNew

    He dated my white friend about 12 or so years back. He definitely likes white girls.

  • HotInCleveland

    And water is wet. Thank you, Next!

  • dru and neil

    Nobody thinks they are dating becasue everybody knows he’d never be with a woman that black so this is nonsense. Whatever they do for photo ops is just for publicity. People knew their public “canoodling” when Black Panther was being promoted, was all for show too.

  • dru and neil

    Jamie Fox never had any of his white women in the public eye until he was well established and respected. Now that the Oscars and Grammys have been won, they are public. I never believed he and Katie Holmes were hiding because of Tom Cruise and Scientology, etc. I always believed they were protecting his career.

  • Bossy704

    He is way too clean cut for her. She likes bad boys. I can't imagine him with a woman at all.

  • brooklyn23

    I agree

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Lupita has too much swag for him... FACT: Michael B Jordan does not look better than Trevante Rhodes who is sexy AF...

  • Gloria

    Protecting his career from what?
    That doesn't seem likely as there are many successful black men who have white spouses (and proudly show them off). Take for instance Omari Hardwick (AKA "Ghost" from Power), Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover, Dave Chappelle, Mike Colter (Played "Luke Cage.") The list goes on.

    People won't get turned down from acting gigs because of their spouse's race lol.

  • Andrea Williams

    I am so NOT surprised. I knew old girl was too dark. My gaydar is still not leaving me alone so i'm going to reserve judgement at this time because he is in his early 30's I believe so 12 years ago when he dated your friend, he may not have "found himself" yet. I don't know, lol

  • MsChocCookie

    We know he likes Saltine Crackers and Not Ritz Crackers...it's no secret

  • Gloria

    Lupita can do WAYYYY better than him.

  • the guest

    I don’t believe them.

    I believe they are “very close friends”.

    But it’s also none of our business.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I think he was ashamed and didn't want anyone to know what he preferred in a woman. That's why it took so long before the public actually saw pics of his kids. Jamie was trying to get his sex symbol on at the time and had black women known that he was not into them THAT would have hurt his career. We were his biggest supporters during his come up. Black women in his movies, black women in his videos, NO BLACK WOMEN IN HIS BED

  • the guest

    Yes. BUT he does like Lupita. They’re not fooling me.

  • the guest

    Black men that like white women are always low key sweating and hitting on black women and that’s why white women who like black men don’t like their black man around black women.

  • Navybeans95

    Yep, smart girl...don't clam him...keep it on the wraps?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    That the lady said winestein raped her but invited him to several of her shows and took pics with him. She an opportunist

  • dru and neil

    Jamie Foxx career has spanned almost 30 years, yes it’s commonplace now in this era to see a black man with an Asian or white or non black Hispanic but it wasn’t always like this. Yes people have always interracially dated and married of course, but not at the rate they do now. Couple decades ago, I always saw black couples in entertainment, these days, I’m actually surprised when a prominent black man actually has a black girlfriend or wife, not mixed, BLACK. That’s how accustomed I am to it, so no it’s not a big deal now, but back then I’m sure he didn’t want to look like a sell out, nowadays it doesn’t matter. Are there any public photos of his white baby mamas?

  • Renee26

    Leave these beautiful young people alone! Michael can get this cougar ? for real tho

  • Renee26

    Awwwwww her skin is beautiful!! He could like a woman of that shade...

  • dru and neil

    Thank you, it was strategic of him to keep these women and his children hidden, it was all about his image, and it worked. He clearly has a preference for white women, I don’t think I know of any black women connected to Jamie Foxx romantically.

  • Ni Ni

    Wasn't jaimie on kanye`s song "When he get on, leave yo azz for a white girl"? Both of them did just that.

    They were telling black women what was up then, but we aint hear em though ?.

    His daughter isn't mixed is she??

    Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o
    ^^^^^
    They like pink nipples and pink dack respectively, so will never be a couple. Anymore questions?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Both of them, yes.

  • RaginB

    ...but he like white women

  • dru and neil

    Her skin is beautiful, but it’s not as respected, preferred, or positively represented at all. A lot of times people aren’t even taking the time to look look at someone facial features before they dismiss them as “too dark.” I was on the IG page of a stunning young dark skinned actress I follow and somebody was in the comments whining about how the lighting on the show made her look “too dark.” That pissed me all the way off because this woman is extremely good looking, yet people complaining about her being “too dark.” I had read other comments about her color on other sites as well and I just didn’t understand how people don’t see what I see, but they don’t.

  • dru and neil

    Both his kids are..

  • Wyteprivilege

    I thought he wasn’t into sistas like that? I mean, he makes money off of Black women, and he’ll even make money with them. But date them? I don’t think so. ?????

  • Renee26

    Sad... Remember the character Keisha from the Belly movie?? I loved how they intentionally made her scenes dark to highlight her dark beauty then on the street scenes they showed her true color.

  • Renee26

    Ok I thought she was just light skinned

  • Renee26

    Shole thought she was just light brown

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    She is...more so due to the fact that her mother is white! LOL

  • Gloria

    Hmmmm. Not sure. I was a child back in the 90s when Jamie was just starting out. I remember the Jamie Foxx show though, which was largely aimed to a black audience so I see your point. I just never heard any black woman raving about him. Has he ever been a sex symbol? No shade to Jamie but I don't think black women even back in the day and even now would be concerned if he dated a Becky.

    But now that I think about it, Jamie wouldn't be the first to hide his relations with white women. I was shocked when I heard that Madonna and 2pac were a thing. They were never public because he didn't want to damage his career, so I can see that for Jamie as well. Thanks for explaining! Times were different back then.

  • dru and neil

    Hell yes and she was on fire! Very pretty lady. I don’t know if we’d see her cast if that movie was made today.

  • Gloria

    I didn't know this either. I'm sorry but I'm looking at Jamie with the side eye.

  • Gloria

    I do adore her as well. Her and Tessa Thompson, even though I sometimes think that Tessa is "industry made," for lack of a better word.

  • Gloria

    Facts.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Anybody who would think they're a couple obviously doesn't know about his preference in women. Here in the ATL it's not a big secret that he's only into white girls.

  • Eileen

    dats right cause wez free

  • Jacqueline Byrd

    Thank you for saying that I am so tired of ignorant thinking that because someone on tv or movies that they owe an explanation about their personal lives. So what he likes white women or she likes women too, just keep making movies that's all I care about. They must have something coming out because that's usually when crap comes out that has nothing to do with their talent.

  • the guest

    Did anyone consider they might just be attracted to each other and don't want people in their business. Being attracted to each other or even lovers doesn't mean they are in a relationship.

    Famous people in Hollywood are attracted to eachother's fame and are always getting involved with each other. I imagine for every public relationship stars have there are five no one knows about.

    Seems like these two were hooking up privately and someone in their circle broke their confidence.

    I think I’m starting to understand what the word internet trolls mean. Ppl take everything they see or say way too serious.

    MBJ is looking for a Thot with a college degree and this girl is looking for a high profile politician. They are not going in the same direction of life.

    They are joking!!!! They not attached, they don’t like each other. They are joking!!!!

    He does date black woman... y’all need to stop spreading this lie. One of his girlfriends was black.

    MBJ is being a hoe right now, he don’t care what color you are as long as you cute.

    I’m trying to figure out why y’all cant understand this. I hung around a lot of playboys growing up, that’s what he is. Every race if girl is capable of getting popped... I don’t think he has a type besides Party Girl Thot right now. This fool ain’t getting married until he 52.

  • 11pink123

    I just think y’all accusing him of being gay because y’all mad his girlfriend is Mexican. That’s all.. that’s really what it is. A bunch of bitter azz woman, who worried about a man that would not f—k them even if he did date black woman.

    Leave that man alone and let him live his life and stop trying to put him with lupita to make yourself feel like you have a chance. You know that girl ain’t his type. And he ain’t her type.

  • cleopatra04

    I'm not sure if he's gay but Hollywood wants him to be. Hollywood is full of homosexuals and pedophiles. He's way too old for the pedophiles but I'm sure he has been on he casting couch. Men in Hollywood have been on their knees for roles a lot more than females have.

    On some G sh*t, Mike B is not cute to me. And it has nothing to do with him liking women who lost their virginity to barnyard animals ...

    However, he was so fine in Black Panther. I think it was the combination of the hairstyle and the character itself.

    I honestly believe black men preferring white or light women is definitely a thing but it is over hyped.... mainly to cause dissension between our men and women. I've come across countless black men who do prefer brown skinned and dark skinned women - proudly. These celebrities are another story. But hey, that's just part of selling your soul.

    Vick? Did he and Kijafa resolve their recent mess? Haven't seen him on her IG for a month-of-Sundays!

  • SweetTEE

    I understand what a hoe is and that coochie doesnt have a face..but how many times have you seen him on a date with anyone other than a white girl? And I need photo evidence bc I've never seen it. Dating & screwing are too totally different things hun.

    If you're spidey sense is tingling then pay attention. Something to be said for following your gut instincts

  • Andrea Williams

    Morning Boo-Boo, my spidey sense IS tingling and it has rarely let me down. But there is ALWAYS a first time for everything. BUT however, lol, it turns out, I am gonna come looking for you to either apologize because you were right or to gloat(just a little)because I was. I'll be like NewNew where you at? Child, we need to talk, lol. Have a good (ugh)Monday.

  • NewNew

    Andrea, why you got me laughing out loud at work?!? ?? Enjoy your day as well dear. Hit me up when you catch MBJ with a "roommate" or dear friend of 20 years who happens to live in his bedroom. ??

    Shoot, what else do you have opinions about? This is fun!! ?

  • Andrea Williams

    @NewNew......So glad you enjoy my humor. My oldest niece told me that I should have my own podcast. Her nickname for me was always LambiePie. She said I should call it 'A day in the life of Pie'. She said that sometimes I have her screaming at work on the low. She said when her co-workers ask her what she is laughing about, she can only shake her head and say my auntie. Even the guy at T-Mobile told me if I ever get the podcast he would listen and I met him over the phone just talking about my phone service. He said that I was the best customer he ever had. Child, he even texted me his number that would ring right to his desk if I ever need help with anything else. I do have some other opinions on SandraRose. Like Ice T's facially challenged little girl (pray for me)that her mama Coco tries to make look better by having her do the ho pose in zebra stripes and leopard print. NewNew she is TWO! Looking just like Ice T. not a good look! NoNo! NewNew. Wherever I see you, I will holla because IT IS fun to have a friend to bounce ideas off of. I will catch up with you soon and please try to enjoy the rest of your day, once you leave work of course, lol.

  • ?jessica?

    He look like the little cartoon dog droopy

  • NewNew

    Shoot, I'll be your third subscriber right behind your niece and the customer service rep. We gotta get our kicks where we can.

    You should seriously consider it though. Maybe 2019 is the year that you start entertaining the masses. I'm here for it girl! You've got a friend in New New ?

  • Andrea Williams

    Hey NewNew......As you can see, I am a night owl. I find that I am happiest or more at peace when I am at home alone or when old boy is asleep. Then I can hear myself think without all of his constant chatter. It is from one thought to the next with him. Lol, sometimes I look at him talking and wonder if I put a muzzle on him, will I go to jail? Then I think Lord please forgive me for that thought but Lord you KNOW what I mean. I don't know what 2019 might hold for me be it a podcast or my marinaded grilled pork chops that family and friends have been hounding me for the recipe for ages. They seem to be a real favorite. I even had someone who tried them wanting to bankroll me but I just don't want to be obligated to do them, you know what I mean? I just want to do me whatever that is. I am glad you are here for my mess. You as a friend works for me. I am going to lay down now before he wakes up and wants to TALK because I am still up. NoNo NewNew no talkie.

  • NewNew

    I too am a night owl! Hate getting up in the morning but will stay up all night long. My mom says I've always been this way, even as a baby. It's hard being a night person in a daytime world!

    I believe that 2019 is the year of elevation. My husband and i have been talking about this a lot. I believe this is our year to start our own businesses and get up from under "Massa's" thumb. We should all have multiple streams of income so stuff like this shutdown won't derail us. So shoot, if your pork chops are the bomb and your wit is your money maker then go on girl! New New is here for it all! My super secret dream is to own my own high end tea shop selling high quality loose leaf teas and tea ware (tea pots, tea sets, etc.). Tea is my passion and I would love to travel asia visiting the tea fields and sourcing my teas from smaller local businesses who put quality over profit. I'll never forgive myself if I don't give it a try so this is the year I set aside self doubt and make my move. Let's do this! ???

    Nope. They're actors.

    Morning NewNew.......That whole night owl thing works for me. Darrell didn't know how I did it because I could go to bed at two, and be back up at six to get ready for work, when I worked. He was in awe, lol, because if you wake him up after four hours of sleep, he gonna be looking at you hella crazy. If you have decided that now is the time to make your move, I say go for it and I'll send up some prayers for you to be a success. What part of the country or world are you in? I am in mostly hot Georgia, where we don't get too much snow except in the northern part of Georgia and even there it is not too heavy and Christmas can be eighty degrees. So you want to share your passion for tea with everyone and travel to Asia? That should be good because there are many folks like myself that have not experienced that kind of tea on the regular, if ever, and it could catch on a little more. Girl, I am in the hot south, we know sweet, iced tea not so much the hot tea, but I do know in SOME circles, they partake of the hot tea so there is a market for it. You could probably do very well. Possibly you could do some "high tea" dahling and hit them with the pastries and scones to die for to keep them coming back and spending. It's just my thoughts.

  • NewNew

    Thanks for the well wishes girl! I'm a bit of a "tea snob" and would love nothing better than to introduce the masses to better tea than Lipton & Bigelow (although i'd like to tour their tea fields in North Carolina ??). I love your high tea idea and am working on a business model that incorporates all of that. I'll let you know when I get my ?hi? together.

    I'm in the northeast but spent a year in Atlanta. The first time I tasted sweet tea my teeth damñ near fell out! Tasted like syrup ?

    Lol about sleeping for 4 hours. That sounds like me back in college. Needed minimal sleep. Now I can't get enough sleep! My mother knows not to call me before 11am on the weekends. No no mama New New, let me sleep!

  • Lucy

    Nupita has a movie about to come out..PR people are working overtime.

  • Andrea Williams

    I hear you about the no calling early on weekends. I see that you are coming right along with your dream. I'm scared of you 'Ms. I'm working on a business model that incorporates all of that'! I certainly wish you well. You know you made me chuckle when you said that you would love to introduce the masses to better tea than Lipton & Bigelow. Now see after talking to you, I'm gonna need to broaden my tea horizons a bit because I NEVER brew tea. I have a Turkey Hill peach tea monkey on my southern back. Lol, I am so sorry your southern tea experience was less than stellar. IF it is done right and not about to make someone's teeth fall out, it can be good. If I know that a place has overly sweet tea, I'll get the unsweetened and use some stevia instead. Our tea might be an acquired taste for some depending on where you are from. Be blessed and I got faith that you will achieve your goals in EVERYTHING not just tea. Me, at this point right now, I just enjoy being home, not worrying about much of anything or being obligated to do anything if I don't want to. I'm just doing me. Now I'm going to eat my salad and take a nap so I can be ready for Mr. Talk Alot, lol. Talk to you later NewNew

  • NewNew

    Enjoy your nap! Catch you on the next good post! Say Hi when you see me in these blog streetz! ???
