Catch Me Elsewhere
When you think of a fine black man, Luther star, Idris Elba comes to mind. He is my prototype of a handsome, strong black man and when he speaks, I melt like butter. I’m sure women all over are willing to have his baby and his ex girlfriend, Desiree Newberry, did give him a son…or so he thought!
In the October issue of GQ magazine, Elba reveals that the son he thought was his was not. In 2010, Elba told the world about his second child, a son when doing press for the movie, The Losers. He later revealed in an interview with Essence magazine that ” I only have a daughter.”
Elba told GQ Magazine that having a son was one of the happiest moments in his life until he found out the truth.
The celebration of having a son from the male’s perspective, it’s massive.”
It was brought to his attention that something just may not be right,
It wasn’t immediately obvious – well it was because he didn’t look like me,” Elba said. “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.
Elba’s decided to have a paternity test which revealed that his girlfriend, Desiree Newberry’s child was not his.
To be given that and then have it taken away so harshly, he recalled, was like taking a full-on punch in the face: POW.
You know, the truth is—like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.
But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the f–k back up, and I ain’t aiming to take another punch in the face ever again.
Do you understand what I’m saying? It happened to me. I moved on. I’ve not be an angel in my life, either – do you know what I’m saying? So to a certain extent, what goes around comes around. But for me in the future, I’m about being comfortable. That’s it.
Ain’t that shit? Who would cheat on Idris Elba? I guess it goes to show, just like in the case of Halle Berry, you can be fine as hell but that doesn’t mean that your mate won’t cheat on you.
