Kenyan actress Lizz Njagah has refuted claims that her marriage was under threat after photos of her husband and Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o emerged on social media.

Word going round was that the two were ex lovers at the time when the photos were taken. However, Lizz has since dismissed those rumours. She told Nairobi News that the two were just friends.

” I know Lupita and Alex were just friends. Either way I wouldn’t be bothered even if they were lovers. That was way back.” She told Heads Up.

Her husband also insisted that he and Lupita Nyong’o were just friends. He added that the photos were taken during the Rwanda International Film Festival years back.

” We were making a diary of our activities after a special request by a local journalist. Most of these photos were on my Facebook page for over two years and I guess they were dug up when Lupita became internationally recognised.”explained Alex.

Lupita Nyon’go describes their relationship as just platonic and nothing more.
