The "Black Panther" co-stars have been getting pretty flirty in recent weeks, and it continued when she popped into his dressing room Monday at "The View." After grabbing/caressing Michael's face ... Lupita demanded he drop down and pump out ... one push-up.
Apparently they made some bet, which he lost, and now MBJ has to do on-call, on-demand push-ups.
The dressing room antics only fueled dating rumors. They were spotted getting a little handsy at several events and promotional appearances last week ... including NY Fashion Week.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
While their fans are all about it, and would LOVE to see them really be a thing ... our sources say the flirting is more about promoting the movie.
With $235 mil at the box office, we'd say ... mission accomplished!
