‘Eclipsed’ Lupita Nyong’o A Diva? Skips Work & Avoids Fans?

Lupita Nyong’o is reportedly pissing off the fans of her Broadway show “Eclipsed.”  Rumors have it that she is making excuses to skip work so as not to meet them. Is she a diva?

According to Page Six, the 33-year-old Mexican-Kenyan actress has not only earned the ire of her fans, but also of the investors and producers because of allegedly missing some shows of her Broadway play.

While she reportedly asked Wednesdays as her days off, such request has never been made official.

“Wednesdays are her days off, but there was never an announcement, so fans are pissed when they come to the show and she’s not there,” a source alleged when asked about the absence of Lupita Nyong’o from some of her “Eclipsed” shows.

Amid her absence, the insider further narrated that she would cite “exhaustion or ‘I have a sore toe’” as her “excuses for skipping work.”

And what made the investors even more upset about the “Eclipsed” star Lupita Nyong’o, the report alleged, was when she was spotted hanging out with Misty Copeland during one of the days when she was not working.

“They were banking on her fame and have not seen a return,” the insider reportedly dished. “The most disrespectful thing is taking off every Wednesday while being seen hanging out with Misty. If you’re too tired to work, stay in bed.”

However, a source close to Lupita Nyong’o pointed out that her being sick was the reason of her absence, and that she is “only contractually obligated” to do seven “Eclipsed” shows in a week.

“She’s maybe missed a show or two because she was sick and lost her voice, but she was never expected to appear in Wednesday-evening shows,” the source said. “And she’s done more to promote this play than other nominees. This is her passion project that she is dedicated to and proud of.”

Meanwhile, Vogue reported that the “12 Years a Slave” star looked stunning in her “fearless” look at the Tony Awards night.

Designer Jason Wu even described her as “the perfect muse.”

The report noted that apart from her performance in “Eclipsed” and in other highly-acclaimed projects, Lupita Nyong’o is also being looked up to when it comes to fashion.
