Well, things certainly got out of control quickly after The Sun posted a story speculating that Madonna and Idris Elba were an item.

Sources told the UK publication that the two were “all over each other” during a party at a London restaurant.

“They arrived together at around 3am and were all over each other. There was nothing subtle about it, no attempt to hide. It was very blatant,” said one source. Another added, “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, very clear.”

Madonna also posted a video of the actor in which she’s cheering him on during a boxing match.
