Idris Elba denies rumors that he’s sleeping with Madonna

Idris Elba says that he is not involved romantically with Madonna.

“Am I sleeping with Madonna? No … Don’t believe the hype,” he tweeted out on Monday.

Recently, rumors that the two are dating have been swirling since the singer went to Elba’s professional kickboxing debut. She captioned a picture of herself at the event on Instagram saying that she was a “kickboxing groupie,” then posted a Snapchat of herself and Elba lying on the floor, joking that “I kicked his butt.”

The two of them were reportedly close after Elba’s fight and were rumored to have been kissing at a London restaurant.
