“Sometimes You Don’t Even Know You’re The Side-Chick”: Did K. Michelle Have Something Going On With Idris Elba?
K. Michelle’s Necole Bitchie interview is spilling all the tea, honey.
In the second part of Necole’s interview with the singer, K talked about the last time she was in love, and revealed that unfortunately, that fella didn’t feel the same way. But what stood out in this conversation was the fact that K dropped some major hints (I’m willing to bet on purpose) that the person she was enamored with was Idris Elba.
Being the creep that I am, I’ve bolded some of those hints:
“The last time I was in love was recently and it was very secretive and quiet. And he had a baby that was about to be born. And yeah, that was very – I think – I [even wanna] cry–that was very hurtful…
He told me about the baby that was about to be born. But he also told me that…you know, we always wanna listen to men and we always want to make excuses for them in order not to pay attention and basically, I was like a glorified side-chick. And sometimes you don’t even know you’re the side-chick until you look back and say, ‘Damn b***h, I was the side-chick, gotdamn.’ But he had this baby and he just wasn’t for the baby’s mother. And you know, he wasn’t about her. And he spent a lot of time with me for eight months. A lot of time with me, here in America, a lot of time was spent. So I just…yeah!
When men, they say so much but not enough and I just assumed…how could you? You know, you are never with this woman. Like, you know, how you see things? And basically we were waiting on the baby to be born, only for you still to be there and now the new excuse is- ‘I can’t leave my baby.’
I’m not gonna do that. I did that for eight months. It’s hard when you date people in the industry and you have to look up and see them every day, you know what I’m saying? So for me, I think my whole album is about this situation. And I think it really took me up out of here. It really did. Because I really felt-like felt, felt, felt, felt and knew that this was my soul mate. This was the person that understood everything about me. And you grow so close. And creative beings are so…That’s one thing: If you fall in love with another creative soul- that’s the s**t that will f**k you up. It’s different from [dating a] basketball [player.] When it’s creative- that’s a whole other level. You’re creating together. You’re doing things. So yeah, I’m just now getting over it. And I’m not over it. But I’m kind of getting over it.
Your baby momma remind me of Spongebob and I’m around here trying to do squats and crunches with my anaconda, doing all kinds of twirling on the sausage, and doing everything that I don’t like to do. And I’m giving my all and you’re giving me what you can.”
At some point, Necole flat-out asked her if rumors of her being with Idris are true, and if he’s really “packing” after those photos (with the microphone wire) had people confused. She seemed a little uncomfortable with that line of questioning:
“[Laughs] So you’re asking me about that? You know what? Out of respect for Idris, I really don’t want to speak on that. I just, um…
Yeah, that was a microphone wire. But yeah, just out of respect of him and our situation, he’s a great person. Other than that, it is what it is, man. I respect him. Yeah. I respect everything. Thank you for the musical. He believed in me when no one did and things in life happen. Life happens.”
Now, some fans are saying that it could be someone else, but it seems that K was really out here alluding to this man in this interview. And it would make sense if she is talking about Elba. Think about it. I know everyone was wondering why the Golden Globe winner would direct K. Michelle’s “Rebellious Soul” musical. And why would he do it for free!? And on top of that, out of all the projects he’s worked on, Elba has promoted them on his Instagram page–except “Rebellious Soul.”
I don’t have all the answers, but I’m thinking that they met, she fell head over heels for him and they worked together, but he was on an entirely different page. Either way, she dished a lot about this man she fell in love with. Whoever he is…
Her statements about the last time she was in love start at the 1:55 mark.
