According to Daily Mail, British actor and hunk Idris Elba is now officially dating hair and make-up artist Naiyana Garth. The 41-year-old actor was pictured getting cosy with Naiyana at this week's Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year awards at Claridge's Hotel in London.And despite the pair only just going public, a source close to the star said the couple have actually been together for several months.
They get on brilliantly and she's a real hit with his family and friends.'Idris is known as a ladies' man but he's really not at all. He'd rather have banter at the bar than spend all night grafting on women.Although he doesn't have to try anyway, women flock to him.' Strangely, as soon as news broke of their romance Naiyana's Twitter feed disappeared from the site while her personal web page, Naiyanamakeuphair.com, is now listed as being 'under construction'. It's still listed on Google however, describing Naiyana as 'a London-based professional hair and make-up artist with extensive experience in Fashion, Film, special effects/prosthetics, Body Painting and Bridal.' With Idris now getting serious with Naiyana after dating for a few months, this could turn out to be the best time of his life. After starring in two of the hottest TV series on TV, The Wire and Luther, he is now being tipped for an Oscar for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela in the new biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
