Jared and Kaufman
Kaufman was spotted with Jared, strolling down a grocery store, and were even photographed enjoying an afternoon hike in Malibu amidst the global pandemic. Jared Leto also introduced his alleged girlfriend to his mother Constance Leto, and the two women were also seen hanging out together.
The photographer source suggests, “They initially seemed to be friends. They would meet up with groups of people and all hangout. They didn’t go on solo dates. Over the years, things seem to have turned romantic. They have been off and on now for a few years, but seem to spend more time together lately.”
Jared Leto was also linked to his co-star and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o. At the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards, Jared referred to Lupita as “my future ex-wife, Lupita. I’m thinking about you.”
The 12 Years a Slave spoke about her relationship with Jared Leto in 2019, saying, “Jared Leto, he’s still on speed dial, because we were on that [Oscar campaign] journey together and he’s so embracing of me. There was an intimacy that grew from that, that goes beyond the dating rumors, beyond all that.”
