Thuso Mbedu Finally Addresses Rumours John Boyega Is Her Boyfriend
The Woman King actress Thuso Mbedu has finally addressed rumours that her co-star John Boyenga is her boyfriend.
Rumours that the two cast members are dating have gathered steam over recent weeks.
While work obviously has them featured in magazines, snaps, and other copies together, their body language, according to fans, suggests something more. The two have taken more pictures together than with anyone else.
Thuso Mbedu and John Boyega added fuel to the fire when they posted identical pictures of a CHANEL x VARIETY Filmmaker Dinner with the same caption that read “CHANEL x VARIETY Filmmaker Dinner” on their Instagram pages.
Thuso Mbedu has publicly addressed the rumours that John Boyega is her boyfriend while responding to a Twitter user who had commented on John Boyega’s announcement that he was heading to South Africa.
While the visit is likely so that John and other cast members can promote The Woman King which was shot in South Africa, one Twitter user going by the name @Ndamase_Siya said they hope Boyega would use the visit to marry Thuso Mbedu. @Ndamase_Siya wrote:

Thuso Mbedu shut down the suggestion by posting a gif of a person with a remote switching off a television set. You can see Mbedu’s response below:

While the response does in no way shoot down suggestions that the two are dating, Mbedu shot down suggestions of a wedding.
In an interview with British GQ published on 13 September, John Boyega revealed what he is looking for in a partner.
Boyega said that now that he is in his thirties, work and settling down is a priority. He said he was once too focused on his work to worry about his personal life. John also revealed that he only dates black women.
He added that he dates in a way that ensures his privacy. John Boyega also said the women that he dates are people who prefer having their personal life private.
