Idris Elba Cuts The Wire On His Relationship With The Mother Of His Son After Stepping Out With Naomi Campbell
Posted On Feb 14, 2016
Idris Elba has called it quits with Naiyana Garth, his girlfriend of two and half years and the mother of his 22-month old son, Winston, amid rumors that he has already moved on with Naomi Campbell!
Just days after the award-winning British actor was spotted leaving a New York City nightclub with the stunning supermodel, he moved out of the London home he lived in with his long-time girlfriend. According to reports, Idris has taken up residence in a nearby two-bedroom apartment to continue sharing parental duties with Naiyana.
After earning critical acclaim with his breakout role as Russell “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s The Wire, the actor’s star has continued to rise. Idris appeared in a series of major Hollywood films including American Gangster, Pacific Rim, Thor, Prometheus and Thor: The Dark World. Last month, he scooped up two Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, earning a best supporting actor nod for Beasts of No Nation and best actor in a limited series after he reprised his iconic titular role in BBC One’s Luther.
However, the actor’s successful career and busy schedule may have taken a toll on his relationship with Naiyana. A source commenting on the couple’s split told British tabloid The Sun, “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.”
Naomi Campbell has been mum on the status of her relationship with Idris, however the two have been friendly since meeting in 2014. The Empire actress recently tweeted a picture of the actor, warmly congratulating him on his SAG wins.
Idris has been married twice before and has a fifteen-year-old daughter, Isan, with his ex-wife Kim Norgaard. With his career soaring, we can only hope that the actor finds similar joy in his personal life.
