AceShowbiz - Thandiwe Newton (Thandie Newton) has further fueled rumors that she is dating Lonr. The "Westworld" actress was caught making out with her rumored 25-year-old musician boyfriend in Malibu, California.
The 49-year-old was spotted out and about with her alleged new fling on Saturday, April 23. In photos obtained by Daily Mail, the Hollywood star and the "A.M." crooner were photographed cuddling and kissing passionately, marking their first public appearance together amid dating rumors.
During the outing, Thandiwe, clad in a green print fleece, khaki cargo trousers and a bucket hat, ditched her wedding ring following her divorce from her husband of 24 years, Ol Parker, who was also caught without his ring when he was captured on April 19. Meanwhile, Lonr., whose real name is Elijah Dias and whose nickname stands for Land of Nothing Real, opted to dress casually in a black hoodie, maroon trousers and a brown crossbody leather bag.
The pair's California sighting came after she stepped away from "Magic Mike's Last Dance" to "deal with family matters." Following her departure, the "Reminiscence" star, who was rushed to hospital due to a foot injury on Friday, April 22, was allegedly urged to seek mental health support as it's believed that "there's a lot going on" in her personal life after she called it quits with Ol.
"Her apparent breakdown caused so much disruption, it became clear she couldn't play the role," a source spilled of her condition. "She seemed so stressed she even brought her two pet rabbits to her hotel for emotional support."
However, Thandiwe, who's replaced with Salma Hayek in the "Magic Mike" sequel, resisted checking herself into rehab despite her friends and agent's growing concern about her well-being, claimed a source. The informant went on to point out that this might be happening as the actress has already found someone new. "She has a close friendship with Lonr," said the insider. Lonr., born Elijah Dias, is a Los Angeles-based musician who is only two years older than Newton's oldest daughter, Ripley Parker.
Upon learning of the dating rumors, Lonr. coyly responded, "From the relatively short time I've been fortunate to spend with her, I know Thandiwe and Oliver care deeply about the welfare of their children." He added, "That's all I care about right now."
