What is the one thing that can have you reminiscing on an ex? Their charm? Their way of making you laugh? Well, in K Michelle’s case, it’s all in the head game, Idris Elba’s head game to be specific.

The Love & Hip-Hop star sat down with a TMZ journalist to talk about her BET series Rag Rants and ended up opening about her short-lived relationship with the 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive. The two dated for only 8 months almost five years ago, but their time together is still ingrained in Michelle’s mind because Idris apparently left his mark. “That was the whole album girl,” jokes K. Michelle, insinuating that Elba influenced the entire creation of her latest project. “That was the one person who I learned the most from about business,” she explains.

“‘Cause he was like a f*cking drug dealer and DJ, hood ass Memphis nigga for real with an accent, behind closed doors.” That’s when Raq interrupts to dive into something more sexual. She inquires about Michelle singing on a song about Elba’s head game. “He’s great. He was very passionate. That was so good,” states K. Michelle as she melts back into her seat, flustered by her memories. Although it’s been years since she and Elba dated, the veteran actor still has his exes praising his existence.
