Idris Elba has reportedly split from his long-term girlfriend and mother of his son, Naiyana Garth.
The Luther actor, 43, is said to have moved out of the London home he shared with make-up artist Naiyana, with whom he has a 22-month-old boy, Winston. They were in a relationship for two-and-a-half years.
A source told a daily newspaper today: “It ended very recently and it’s too soon for her to talk about it.
“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.”
News of the split comes after Idris was spotted enjoying a night out with supermodel Naomi Campbell.
The pair seemed to have got together in America last week and were pictured leaving the prestigious 1 Oak nightclub.
Naiyana was notably absent from Idris’ appearance at the British Film Awards on Sunday when he scooped the Best Actor accolade for Beasts Of No Nation. He also failed to mention her during his acceptance speech.
However, Idris’ 13-year-daughter Isan, his child with former wife Dormowa Sherman, was with him at the awards.
