R&B singer K. Michelle admits that her new album Anybody Wanna Buy a Broken Heart? is all about her secret relationship with British actor Idris Elba (The Wire, No Good Deed). Why people are surprised to learn that they dated is a mystery. Didn’t they see the sexy Rebellious Soul, the musical Elba directed for her? Anyway, they’re no longer together. The Love ‘Em All singer quietly walked away when she heard Elba’s girlfriend Naiyana Garth was pregnant. K. Michelle says she and Elba are on good terms but timing wasn’t on their side.
