According to MTO News, the 32-year-old star has "a preference for White, Latina, and 'exotical' women." It might be true because her rumored new lady is of Middle Eastern descendant as both of her parents are Persian from Iran.
One of his friends spills to the site that the "Creed" actor is dating Swedish singer Snoh Aalegra. The alleged lovebirds "have been dating for months," says the friend before adding that "they appear to be getting pretty serious."
While Michael seemingly wants to keep their relationship out of spotlight, Snoh is the opposite. She seemed to be excited about the romance as she made a low key post of him on Instagram Stories over the weekend.
An Instagram blog that goes by @gossipofthecity shared a screenshot of her update featuring a pair of legs sporting military green cargo pants. The blog believes that Michael is the owner of the legs since the pants are apparently from one of the actor's collection for a collaboration with COACH.
Further fueling the rumors are the fact that they are following each other on the photo-sharing site. Michael has yet to address the rumors.
Prior to this, Michael was rumored to be dating "Black Panther" co-star Lupita Nyong'o. The pair, however, denied the romance rumors with Michael saying, "We're good friends, honestly, we've known each other a really long time and respect each other and I love this girl to death."
"It's flattering at the end of the day," Lupita added. "I think it's such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and for us to find each other as actors and get to work together; it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other's company on and off screen."
Michael and Lupita's comments came shortly after they poked fun at the romance rumours by locking lips in an elevator at the Golden Globes Awards. They also included their "Black Panther" co-star Danai Gurira in the flirty fun.
