Idris Elba is clearing up any romance rumors related to him and Madonna.
After tabloids reported over the weekend that the 44-year-old actor was spotted kissing Madonna at a restaurant in London on Friday after she went to see him kickbox as part of his upcoming TV series, Idris Elba: Fighter
, Elba took to Twitter to directly address the reports.
"Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherfu**ers... 'Don't believe the Hype,'" he tweeted early Monday.
At the very least, 58-year-old Madonna and Elba appear to be friends. Madonna instagrammed a video of him boxing on Friday, writing, "Idris Elba Smashes it at York Hall!"
Last November, the British actor also tweeted a picture of him holding hands onstage with the Material Girl herself.
"Legend," he captioned the snap.
Elba's three-part documentary, in which he trains to become a professional kickboxer, will air on Discovery next year.
In August, the handsome star had his fans rejoicing when he posed in nothing but his briefs
for a sweaty, muscle-bound post-workout selfie. Elba had been working out intensely in preparation for his big fighting debut.
"Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place. Fear NO guy," he captioned the pic on Instagram.
