Thandiwe Newton has been on the news lately, but for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this month, reports came in that she was dropped from the Magic Mike sequel amid her issues with the breakdown of her marriage. Recently, she was spotted for the first time after her split from husband Ol Parker became public.
Newton seemingly confirmed the end of their 23-year marriage with a very public display of affection with musician Lonr. The 49-year-old Hollywood star gave in to the speculation that she had parted ways with her director husband by stopping for a passionate kiss and holding hands with the rapper, who is 25, in Malibu.
Newton went for a casual look while on her date with Lonr. She was in a green print fleece, khaki cargo trousers and bucket hat. Meanwhile, At 25, Lonr is only a mere four years older than Thandiwe and Ol’s eldest child, their 21-year-old daughter Ripley.
The embattled actress was said to be heading to rehab. However, according to reports she resisted the idea. Thandiwe ditched her wedding ring and diverted her attention from recent adversity by lapping up some time in the balmy temperatures with the California native, whose real name is Elijah Dias.
Meanwhile, Lonr kept his attire laidback and sported a black hoodie with maroon trousers and crossbody leather bag. The pair filled their weekend with plenty of quality time, which included a spot of retail therapy and winding down with a bite to eat.
