Idris Elba has denied the rumors he’s dating Madonna. On Monday morning, the actor took to Twitter to shoot down recent tabloid claims he’s “sleeping” with the iconic singer.

Earlier this week, Madonna attended the actor’s kickboxing debut at London’s York Hall, where the two posed for photos backstage. And later that night, both went to an after-party at London’s M Restaurant. Now according to The Sun, the singer and actor got very cozy during the party and were even caught kissing. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid newspaper, “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.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “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.” Several outlets immediately picked up the story and began spreading the false claim that Madonna and Elba are hooking up, but this simply isn’t the case.

Early Monday morning, Elba tweeted a concise and pointed message to silence the rumors. “Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherf***ers… ‘Don’t believe the Hype,'” the actor wrote. Elba is friendly with the singer, but there’s nothing romantic happening between the two.
