*During an exclusive listening event in NY for her new album, “Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart,” K. Michelle was asked to address rumors that she was dating Idris Elba, the director of her VH1 special “The Rebellious Soul Musical.”

Their relationship seemed to be strictly business, until she spoke about an unnamed man with the same life events as the “Mandela” actor in a recent interview with NecoleBitchie.

At the listening party, just before her album art revealed, Necole was on hand to directly ask K to clear up the rumors from their initial interview.

“Well… Uh, I’ve been very protective of certain things and situations, but you know what, I really respect him and our situation,” she said vaguely, before adding, “I will always love him and that’s all I am going to say.”
