Earlier this week it was reported that Lena Waithe and her wife, Alana Mayo, called it quits after just two months of marriage.

According to Bossip, Waithe was allegedly unfaithful to her wife during their short stint as a married couple. The report states that Waithe was caught on multiple occasions purchasing women expensive gifts and struggled with infidelity even after the couple’s secret marriage ceremony in California. One of the sources stated:
“Even after they married, Lena was still buying designer gifts – Chanel, Gucci – for other women.”
Now, it looks like Waithe has already got a new boo thang in the form of Harriet actress, Cynthia Erivo. The two are rumored to even be living with each other just days after Waithe formally announced her split from Alana Mayo.
Lena Waithe and Cynthia Erivo have publicly crossed paths on several occasions during Hollywood outings and even posed in several candid photos together. While the rumors of Erivo and Emmy Award-winning writer’s relationship have yet to be verified, their interactions on social media praising each other’s artistry and personas could be used as some damning evidence against the alleged couple.
If the rumors of the two dating are true, Waithe is moving pretty savagely in these streets. Check out this short clip of Lena Waithe talking about ‘vibing’ with Cynthia Erivo in a red carpet conversation with Variety in the video provided below.
