The romance rumors have been swirling around the two for awhile, but it kicked into high gear when they were reportedly spotted kissing at London’s M Restaurant early Saturday after Elba competed in his first boxing match for Discovery Network International’s limited series Idris Elba: Fighter.
Madonna posted an Instagram video of Elba’s debut in the ring:
She also posted pics on Snapchat, including one of her lying next to the actor on the floor. The Material Girl wrote, “I kicked his butt.”
Then, in the early morning hours, Elba and Madonna headed into the London hot spot, and sources told The Sun, they were “all over” each other for the hour they stayed. “There was nothing subtle about it, no attempt to hide. It was very blatant… They only had eyes for each other. That seemed very, very clear.”
On Monday, the British actor sent one simple tweet to shut the rumors down. “Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherfuckers… Don’t believe the Hype.”
Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherfuckers… “Don’t believe the Hype”.
