Did Idris Elba Ditch His Baby's Mother After a Night With a Supermodel?

The Beasts of No Nation star may have been up to no good.

Published February 10, 2016

Uh oh, Idris Elba may be a single man again after he was reportedly caught creeping with one of the most famous faces — and bodies — in the world. The Beasts of No Nation actor is said to have split with his longtime girlfriend and baby's mother Naiyana Garth after a night out with supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Elba has been rolling solo to various awards season functions lately (with the exception of the British Film Awards, to which he brought his beautiful 13-year-old daughter Isan) and was then spotted at 1OAK nightclub with Campbell. The supermodel even congratulated him on his history-making double win at the SAG Awards: "Congratulations @Idriselba you deserve your double WIN. @SAGawards."

Garth, who is mother to Elba's 22-month-old son Winston, is reportedly still in shock over the split. “It ended very recently and it’s too soon for her to talk about it," a source close to the makeup artist tells the Daily Mail. “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.”

Campbell and Elba became friends in 2014 after they both participated in a Fashion For Relief charity event. We don't know for sure whether she's the cause of his split with Garth — or even if they're really together — but the important takeaway from all this is that Idris is single again. Sorry, Naiyana, but your loss is a whole lot of women's gain. 

Meanwhile, Idris is simply crushing it in terms of his career. Watch a recap of his historic SAG Awards win with BET Breaks, below:
