Are Madonna and Idris Elba Dating!?
As far as odd celeb couplings go, Madonna and Idris Elba are pretty high up there. The legendary singer and British actor sparked rumours that they are newly involved after they were spotted kissing following the actor's debut kickboxing fight.
The 44-year-old Luther star participated in his first kickboxing fight for his new TV show Idris Elba: Fighter (which will hit screens next year and follows the actor as he trains to become a professional kickboxer), while the Material Girl singer documented the entire event from backstage on her social media feeds.
Mother-of-four Madonna shared the build-up to Idris' debut fight in London on Snapchat, as well as posting footage of the pair messing around. She continued to share clips from the fight with her followers and seemed as pleased as punch when he emerged as victor, writing: "Knockout in 1 min 55, go, Idris!"
The 58-year-old singer was then spotted heading to a party at London's M Restaurant to celebrate the actor's win, and it was there that the pair were allegedly seen kissing passionately. A source told The Sun newspaper, "There was nothing subtle about it, no attempt to hide. It was very blatant. They were at the party for about an hour, they would dance, go off to smooch, then mingle a bit more."
The pair have been close for years, with the actor-turned-DJ supporting the singer on parts of her Rebel Hearts tour last year. Idris attempted to deny the rumours on Twitter the next day, but let's watch this space!
