Angie Stone says Idris Elba was ‘crushing on her,’ regrets saying ‘no’
Angie Stone could have had Idris Elba as her man.
At least, that’s what the singer said during a recent interview. She claimed that Elba had a thing for her, and now, looking back, she regrets not taking him up on it.
“When Idris and I were working on that song, Idris was actually crushing on me,” Stone said of her work with the actor on the video for “I Wanna Thank You.”
“The sad part about it is I wasn’t checking for him like that,” Stone continued. “And he was like, you know, we were very good friends, we had the same accountant, same manager, and for a very long time, he made it very public that he was in love with Angie Stone. And I had already been with D’Angelo.”
“I didn’t know what to do with these good looking guys digging Angie Stone,” she joked.
She then continued, “We became very close, but not in the way. So, Idris actually did a treatment for a video for me. There was a song called ‘I Can’t Take It’ that I did on one of my albums. And he did the video treatment. He was going to shoot the video, very beautiful, sensual treatment. And it was after that that I found out how he was, you know, going on with about twenty of his home boys, like, ‘She doesn’t want it.'”
“There is one weak moment that I had because I have a thing for beautiful teeth. And he came to the door, and I opened the door, and he was twirling this toothpick around in his teeth. And I fell on the side of the door like, ‘Okay, what’s happening to me?'” she added.
But she said that she pulled the brakes, telling herself, “I will never date Idris, because he’s like my brother.”
“Do I regret it? Absolutely.”
