Idris Elba recently broke up with his son’s mother Naiyana Garth, and the news went viral after he was photographed having a night out on the town with Naomi Campbell.
Now The Daily Mail has penned a new piece detailing the actor’s string of failed relationships.
The Daily Mail writes:
Biographer Nadia Cohen, author of Idris Elba: Actor, DJ, Legend, says: ‘People felt that Naiyana had tamed him and that he was ready to settle down finally, but perhaps it’s just not to be.
‘He’s at the peak of his career and one of the most desired men in the world and maybe having a young baby doesn’t chime with that. It seems like he won’t ever settle down.’
He certainly has form: Idris split from his first wife while she was pregnant with their daughter, Isan, who’s now 15.
A second marriage lasted only a day — and as a young man working as a DJ on a pirate radio station he was known as Mr Kipling, after someone said, ‘Idris, you’ve got more tarts than Mr Kipling.’
Now, as a Hollywood heavyweight, he is surrounded by fawning females. According to Cohen: ‘He just loves all the attention. He loves flirting with everyone in the room, whether it’s a gay waiter or the coat check girl.
‘Everybody fancies him. He’s a really, really sexy man and loves the attention.’
The writer even brings up Idris’ past relationship with K Michelle in which the R&B singer claims they got together while he was with Naiyana (K also claims she had no idea he was dating someone else) and Idris called things off after he learned Naiyana was pregnant.
