News outlets, Hollywood Reporter, The Grio, Yahoo and more have published stories saying Idris Elba has moved out of the London home he shared with make-up artist Naiyana, with whom he has 22-month-old boy Winston.

Well, we have Erykah Badu making men put their phones down and now it seems we may have Naomi Campbell making men leave home.

The reports of the 43-year-old actor leaving the home he shared with his girlfriend of 2 1/2 years surfaced after he was seen out on the town with super beauty Naomi Campbell.

The pair seemed to have got together again in America and were pictured leaving the prestigious 1 Oak nightclub.

It is further reported that Elba moved into a two bedroom flat not too far from Naiyana and Winston so he could remain close to his son.

Naomi also recently took to Twitter to publicly congratulate Elba on his SAG Awards win in the midst of the Oscars’ race row, writing on the social network: ‘Congratulations @Idriselba you deserve your double WIN. @SAGawards.’

There’s more tea. Naiyana, in a relationship with Idris for two-and-a-half years, was notably absent from Idris’ appearance at the British Film Awards on Sunday when he scooped the Best Actor accolade for Beasts Of No Nation.

He failed to mention her during his acceptance speech.


No one from the Idris Elba side is commenting publicly on the reported split.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

  1. Every relationship that breaks down is always a sad story. Idris Elba is a nice gentleman. Breaking the heart of the mother of his child just so that he could be with Naomi Campbell is not a very pleasant story. But I’m not here to condemn him. Each to his own!

    1. Very well said felixjarikre. Then too no one really knows how healthy the relationship is / was with his child’s mother. I would suppose something had to be amiss for him to begin entertaining Ms Campbell. In any event, for the child’s sake I hope things remain civil between him and the child’s mother.
