Bad boys are very hard to resist…
And if the reports are true, it looks like Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has fallen hard for a rough around the edges rapper, K’Naan!
He was apparently seen by the 12 Years A Slave actress' side after her big win on Sunday, and was spotted on her Instagram account in the (above) snap taken at the start of award season about 3 months ago.
It's safe to say they're close - so Lupita must know K'naan is a former Somali gang member with a history of past arrests, right?!
Keinan Warsame (that's his real name) was born in Somalia but fled to Canada in the early '90s, where he lived in a rough Toronto neighborhood, falling into a gang.
Did we fail to mention he was arrested more than 12 times in his teens?!
Luckily, since becoming a successful rapper, K'naan cleaned up his act quite a bit - practicing the Muslim religion, and he doesn't even drink or smoke anymore!
Maybe this *REFORMED* bad boy is just what Miz Nyong'o needs right now…
We'll be on the hardcore lookout for more sightings of these two!
