On Thursday, 40-year-old Lupita announced the separation via her official Instagram page.
Lupita gave the reason that she didn’t trust Masekela, her 52-year-old boyfriend.
“At this time, I must publicly disassociate myself from someone I can no longer trust and communicate a personal reality. I’m going through a difficult time right now because of a love that was cruelly and unexpectedly destroyed by lies, Lupita stated.
“I’m tempted to hide in the shadows and only come out into the open when I have enough strength to speak.
“Whatever, my life is better this way. But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love,” Lupita added.
Less than a year after the couple made their romance public, they decided to split up.
In December 2022, Lupita initially revealed that she was seeing Masekela.
She remarked that she had chosen to be honest in order to encourage those who might be going through similar things in silence.
She added that she is prepared to bravely face her agony in the hopes that it will pass quickly. stating that those going through difficult circumstances should deal with their pain in order to prevent it from spreading.
