According to the British press, Idris Elba and girlfriend Naiyana Garth have called it quits. The pair have been together for about three years and have a toddler son together, but apparently they’ve decided to go their separate ways.

The Sun reports, “Things ended very recently,” and the former couple have “kept it very quiet, so [Garth is] surprised people know already.”

But honey…when the news that Elba was officially single, scores women (and a fair amount of men too) sent up a collective cheer.

I don’t know about you, but over on my Facebook newsfeed many of my friends have chimed in with some variation of, “Well, I don’t normally root for bad news but….IDRIS!” And from the looks of things, Twitter is pretty happy too.

Before you get your hopes up, though, rumor has it Elba and supermodel Naomi Campbell might be an item. So basically, we still probably have a better chance at hitting the lotto than hooking up with Big Dris.

    I think the man is fine but I wish he was still with the mother of his child. We have too many children in our community growing up without both parents in the household.
