Thandiwe Newton looks to be dating a new boyfriend.
The actress, 49, was caught kissing musician Lonr in Malibu, California, over the weekend, just days after her 24-year-old husband, Ol Parker, was spotted without his wedding ring.
Newton and Lonr (full name: Elijah Dias) were photographed holding hands as they stepped out together on Saturday, with the Westworld actress dressed in a green hoodie and matching bucket hat. She didn’t have a wedding ring on her finger.
Lonr, who is featured on the soundtrack for Newton’s next film Reminiscence, wore a black hoodie and red leggings for the occasion.
“I know Thandiwe and Oliver care greatly about the welfare of their children from the relatively little time I’ve been fortunate to spend with her,” Lonr told The New York Post’s Page Six. “Right now, that’s all I care about.”
Newton’s publicist has yet to respond to PEOPLE‘s request for comment.
Newton and Lonr were spotted four days after Parker, 52, was spotted outside his London house without his wedding ring.
Who Is Lonr, Thandie Newton’s new boyfriend?
Lonr’s real name is Elijah Dias. In April of 1997, he was born. With his song A.M., the singer made his debut in the music industry. In the year 2020, he released his debut EP, Land of Nothing Real (LONR), which stands for his stage name.
On Instagram, the singer has roughly 57.7k followers. He keeps his admirers up to date on his future ventures on social media every now and then.
In May 2020, Dias told Flaunt magazine that his stage name Lonr. stands for “Land of Nothing Real” and was inspired by his feelings of being a solitary while growing up in Massachusetts.
“When I was younger, I didn’t have a permanent residence. I was born in California, but I shared a couch with my mother. In high school, we relocated to Massachusetts. Because I moved about so much when I was young, I always felt alienated from everyone,” he explained at the time.
“I used to spend most of my time in my head, constantly picturing and editing things in real life.” Making that make-believe whatever it was in my head. It was a cornerstone of my creativity growing up in that milieu.”
About Thandie Newton and her ex-husband Ol Parker
Newton and Parker, 52, married in 1998 and have three children: Ripley, 21, Nico, 17, and Booker, eight years old. They haven’t been spotted together in public since March 2020, when they attended the “Westworld” Season 3 premiere in Los Angeles.
When asked for comment, Dias told The Post, “From the relatively little time I’ve been blessed to spend with her, I know Thandiwe and Oliver care greatly about the welfare of their children.” “Right now, that’s all I care about.”
Newton’s representative has been contacted for comment by Page Six.
Newton abruptly left “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” earlier this month owing to personal family issues and rumors of an apparent confrontation with co-star Channing Tatum, which Newton’s reps refuted.
A Warner Bros. spokeswoman said in a statement that “[she] made the painful decision to step away from the production of Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’ to deal with family problems.”
Newton has been dealing with “emotional and family problems” since her marriage fell apart, according to multiple sources.
“Thandiwe had been acting strangely on set, and she was really tense.” One Hollywood insider claimed, “Her apparent breakdown caused so much upheaval that it became clear she couldn’t play the job.”
“She has a lot going on in her personal life, including the fact that she and her husband have divorced.” She appeared to be so concerned that she brought her two pet bunnies with her to her hotel for emotional support.”
Salma Hayek, who was sighted on set in London on Friday, has taken Newton’s place.
