Actor Idris Elba has reportedly split from his girlfriend Naiyana Garth after three years of dating.
via the Telegraph:
The Luther star is reported to have taken up residence in a nearby flat in South West London in order to remain close to their 22-month-old Winston.
“It ended very recently and it’s too soon for her to talk about it,” a source close to Ms Garth told The Sun.
“They’ve kept it very quiet so she’s surprised people know already. It’s very sad that this has happened while Idris is experiencing the highest points of his professional career and they can’t celebrate it with each other.”
Rumors have swirled over his relationship since the SAG awards ceremony, which attended with 13-year-old daughter Isan rather than Ms Garth.
After winning best actor for Beasts of No Nation at the British Film Awards on Sunday night, Elba name-checked a number of people in his acceptance speech, but not his girlfriend.
When asked if he was newly single, Elba replied: “That’s the media for you.”
The newspaper said a representative for Elba declined to comment when asked about his relationship status.
The report came days after Elba was spotted at a New York nightclub with supermodel Naomi Campbell. The pair were pictured leaving the 1 Oak nightclub together.
Elba and Campbell became friends in 2014 after the 43-year-old actor took part in Fashion For Relief charity event, MailOnline reported.
Campbell publicly congratulated him on his SAG Awards win last week, tweeting: “Congratulations @Idriselba you deserve your double WIN. @SAGawards.”
If he’s single, we’re definitely ready to mingle. Hey Idris!
