Alongside the image, it read: ‘It’s ok to feel sad after making the right decision.’

She wrote on another Instagram Story: ‘Pettiness is a human trait from every era.’
The caption above the picture beneath read: ‘Before Facebook, this is how we used to unfollow people,’ with the image showing three people sitting alongside each other, with the head of one ripped from the photo.
The caption on Jodie’s next Story read: ‘And yet, somehow, I manage to go on.’
While Jodie and Joshua both still follow each other on Instagram, it is unclear if they are still linked on all social media platforms.
In December Joshua was photographed holding hands with Lupita, 40, just hours after DailyMail.com exclusively confirmed they’re dating.
Joshua and Lupita put on a PDA-packed display for the first time since sparking dating rumours.
In October, they were first seen enjoying a Janelle Monáe concert together, shortly after their respective splits were announced.
Lupita broke up with her boyfriend of nearly a year Selema Masekela in late October.

She claimed it was the result of ‘deception’ that caused her a ‘magnitude of pain.’
Sources dished to DailyMail.com that Lupita and Joshua’s friendship had blossomed into a ‘romance.’
‘Things have slowly turned to romance between the two,’ the source said. ‘They have been amazing friends for a long time and Josh didn’t want to ruin that.
‘But as they’ve hung out more and more and dealt with their breakups, dealing with it together has added another level to their friendship. Now it is a physical relationship. They are a couple.’
DailyMail.com’s exclusive confirmation came shortly after Lupita and Joshua were spotted picking up groceries at the high-priced Erewhon market in Los Angeles.
It was the first time they’d been seen since their concert outing in October, which occurred just one day before Lupita confirmed her split from Selema, 52 – and one month after Joshua split from Jodie, with whom he shares daughter Juno, three.
At the time of their outing, a source explained to DailyMail.com that the pair were attempting to take things slow as they navigated their recent breakups.
They revealed: ‘Joshua has a type and Lupita definitely fits that to a tee. But they are just friends, it is still a little early for Joshua to start dating again.

‘Could he be an item with Lupita down the road? Without question… They are both still going through it with their recent breakups and still are looking to heal.’
Indeed, sources told DailyMail.com Joshua had been left ‘heartbroken’ over his split from Jodie who filed for divorce after nearly four years, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’.
The actor had not been ‘thrilled’ about the termination of his marriage – but it was made clear by insiders that there was no foul play involved and that their union had simply ‘run its course’.
Meanwhile, Lupita was more vocal about her ‘season of heartbreak’ following the breakdown of her relationship with the TV host and sports commentator – whom she began dating in 2022.
The Oscar-winner waxed lyrical about a ‘break-up’ on Instagram, claiming it was a result of ‘deception’ by her unnamed loved one.
She wrote: ‘There are much more important things going on in the world right now, and my thoughts are with those who are deeply suffering.
‘At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust…
‘I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception.

‘I am tempted to run into the shadows and hide, only to return to the light when I have regained my strength enough for me to say, “Whatever, my life is better this way.”
‘But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love. And so, I am choosing to face the pain, cultivating the courage to meet my life exactly as it is, and trusting that this too shall pass.
‘The promise, they say, is that a tender heart is what gives birth to fearlessness. I hope it’s true…
‘I share this to keep it, and hoping that the knowledge of my experience might be useful to someone else out there experiencing the grip of heartbreak who is poised to try and escape from the pain and miss out on the wisdom that comes from it. #Breakup Let’s face our pain so we don’t spread it.’
Joshua and his ex Jodie first sparked split rumours in September 2022 when they unfollowed each other on social media – after previously sharing multiple loved-up posts.
They then refollowed each other, with Joshua brushing off speculation as he gushed about his wife in a chat with E! News.
The couple started dating in 2018 – two years after the Dr. Death star split from actress Diane Kruger, who has a four-year-old daughter with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus.
‘She is undeniably one of the most beautiful women on the planet,’ he said. ‘And she always smashes it when she’s on the red carpet. That is truly a wonder to behold.
‘But I will tell you, that there is nothing like waking up in the morning, opening my eyes and seeing her face in the morning.’
Joshua and Jodie went on to tie the knot in August 2019 and welcomed their daughter Juno in April 2020.
