Idris Elba is shooting a docuseries for Discovery called Idris Elba: Fighter that follows his progress as he trains to be a pro kickboxer. His training has been a gift to all of us. Example:


Two weeks left. For my Chuuus.

Anyway, Idris’s first fight happened this weekend and he won, a knockout in a minute 55 seconds. And part of it was documented by none other than Madonna:

Afterwards they hit up the same party. According to the UK Sun they were openly kissing, making out. A source says, “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. They only had eyes for each other. That seemed very clear”.

So now everyone’s all like, Madonna and Idris Elba, they’re a thing. And yeah, totally, it’s a good gossip story. A great gossip story. Madonna and Idris have known each other a while. He DJed an opening set for her while she was on tour last year. What makes this complicated though is that Idris was supposed to be back together with his girlfriend, and mother of his son, Naiyana Garth. They stepped out together in May at the British Academy Television Awards after he talked about his distractions, and how they can mess up his life, specifically his phone. Presumably he turned off his phone and things improved between him and Naiyana.

Just a few weeks ago, Idris wished Naiyana Happy Birthday on Instagram:


@naiyanagarth Happy Birthday Mummy;) ENJOY this day Nai....

So…if Madonna and Idris are really happening, maybe it’s actually not that great after all? But also, here’s what Idris tweeted about an hour ago:

I believe him. Do you believe him?
