Soul singer Angie Stone revealed in a new interview she turned down one of the hottest men in the planet..
Yes! Idris Elba..She claimed that Elba had a thing for her, and now, looking back, she regrets not taking him up on it.In an interview with MadameNoire, she said
“When Idris and I were working on that song, Idris was actually crushing on me.“The sad part about it is I wasn’t checking for him like that,And he was like, you know, we were very good friends, we had the same accountant, same manager, and for a very long time, he made it very public that he was in love with Angie Stone. And I had already been with D’Angelo.”“I didn’t know what to do with these good looking guys digging Angie Stone,” she joked.
She then continued,
“We became very close, but not in the way. So, Idris actually did a treatment for a video for me. There was a song called ‘I Can’t Take It’ that I did on one of my albums. And he did the video treatment. He was going to shoot the video, very beautiful, sensual treatment. And it was after that that I found out how he was, you know, going on with about twenty of his home boys, like, ‘She doesn’t want it.’”“There is one weak moment that I had because I have a thing for beautiful teeth. And he came to the door, and I opened the door, and he was twirling this toothpick around in his teeth. And I fell on the side of the door like, ‘Okay, what’s happening to me?’” she added.But she said that she pulled the brakes, telling herself, “I will never date Idris, because he’s like my brother.”
“Do I regret it? Absolutely.”
