AceShowbiz - Rumor has it, Lena Waithe cheated on her wife Alana Mayo with another woman. The "Master of None" actress allegedly betrayed Alana's trust and hooked up with "Harriet" actress Cynthia Erivo behind her back.
The infidelity rumors came to light after Lena and Alana announced separation after only months of marriage. "After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways. We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time," they said in a joint statement.
The "Queen & Slim" writer was reportedly spotted holding hands and kissing Cynthia at the Golden Globes where Cynthia received two nominations for Best Actress in a Movie and Best Original Song early this month.
Before the Golden Globes, Lena presented Cynthia with a Breakthrough Performance Award at the 31st annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF). On the red carpet, Lena gushed over Cynthia and said she was "vibing" with the British star.
Back in 2018 following Met Gala, It was Cynthia who sang high praise for Lena. "I finally found my sis. Lena you are absolutely everything. You are perfection. What a meeting of minds, glad to have you in my life! Stuck like glue !!! SHINE QUEEN SHINE!!" she wrote on Instagram, prompting Lena to reply, "I live for you! So glad our paths finally crossed, sis! Thanks for being the highlight of my night xoxo."
According to LoveBScott, Lena Waithe cheated on Alana Mayo multiple times and their rushed wedding at a San Francisco courthouse in 2019 was actually to appease Alana and salvage their relationship.
However, the wedding allegedly couldn't stop Lena's wandering eyes. "Even after they married, Lena was still buying designer gifts - Chanel, Gucci - for other women," a source said.
