LUPITA NYONG’O THE BIGGEST DIVA ON BROADWAY?
Lupita Nyong’o has earned rave reviews for her leading role in Broadway’s Eclipsed and was ravishing as she represented her show at the Tony Awards, but according to sources, things haven’t been quite so happy backstage.
Page Six reports that the Oscar winner has been making the show’s producers and investors angry with her diva-like demands.
Sources tell the site that Lupita has missed some shows and even decided to take Wednesdays off apparently without telling anyone. “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,” said the insider, who adds that Nyong’o gives “exhaustion or ‘I have a sore toe” as excuses for skipping work.
Well, turns out Lupita got caught playing hooky on one of her sick days when she was spotted hanging with Misty Copeland, and it’s truly pissed off the show’s investors. “They were banking on her fame and have not seen a return,” the source says. “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.”
