Idris Elba’s first marriage was to Dormowa Sherman, a fellow thespian from Liberia. Idris Elba married Dormowa Sherman in 1997 and had one daughter, Isan, but things fell apart when he couldn’t find work and wound up living “in my brown Chevrolet Astro van for eight weeks,” as he told Britain’s Now magazine. Idris Elba then married his second wife, Kim Elba, though online reports are unclear as to when they divorced. In fact, some websites claim Idris Elba had his daughter with Kim. But one thing is for sure: He’s now single.

“Is Idris Elba married?” is a question ladies have been asking since at least 2002, when he made his “Wire” debut and became a superstar. Born September 6, 1972, in London, England, this son of African parents had spent most of the ‘90s appearing on British TV shows, and after the success of “The Wire,” he landed high-profile gigs on “The Office” and “Luther.” “Yeah, yeah,” say ladies (and fellas) smitten with his good looks, “But is Idris Elba married?” Idris Elba is not married, but he’s twice walked down the aisle, and that’s not the only intrigue in his personal life.

In a 2013 interview with GQ, Idris Elba talked about being duped into thinking he’d fathered a son. The deception occurred in 2010, when he was dating a woman from Florida. “Is Idris Elba married?” in other words, is not the only interesting question surrounding this superstar actor. No, he’s not married—and he’s not the father of a son, either.

“The celebration of having a son—from a man’s perspective, it’s massive,” he told GQ, as the L.A. Times reports, explaining how he later learned the child was not his. “It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me. But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”
