Idris Elba angrily denies ‘stupid’ celebrity coronavirus conspiracy theory

Idris Elba’s wife Sabrina tells Oprah Winfrey she has coronavirus

Elba's statement comes as the disparity between rich and poor have resulted in frustration in the general populace about how rich celebrities and politicians are getting tested multiple times while there's a testing kit shortage. During an Instagram Live Tuesday, the Hobbs & Shaw star said he believes all people should have access to COVID-19 tests - but that it's "counterproductive" to shame those who have been able to get one. "Secondly, I'm in higher altitude at the moment, which makes breathing even more hard".

He insisted: "It shouldn't be about whether the rich or poor gets it". "It's like, I got a test but I also got COVID".

"I could have made the decision to put myself, maybe in a separate room or stay away, and I'm sure that people are making those decisions and they're tough decisions to make", she said.

He continued and said: 'Such stupidness and people wanna spread that as if it's like news. There's no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting here saying we've got it when we ain't got it.

Idris Elba's wife, Sabrina Dhowre Elba, is viewed by many as the quintessential embodiment of the urban term "ride-or-die chick" as she refused to leave his side after he contracted COVID-19.

"I'm just a human being and I just happen to be in the public eye".

"I'm starting to feel like ya'll n-s is paying n-s to say that they got it", she added, "and if you are paying n-as to say that they got it, pay me, too!"

Cardi B claimed celebs might be being paid to say they have coronavirus....


"Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive", Sabrina told the host on Facetime on Saturday.

"Let's say if I have the coronavirus right now. That causes confusion", Cardi said in response to Elba's comments.

"So essentially, I could have been positive from March 4, but it's hard to say when I contracted someone with corona, you can contract it at anytime but my known exposure was March 4".

Elba previously explained he was screened for the virus, despite having no symptoms, after coming into contact with someone who had tested positive.

"Tell me what it is and what it ain't".

Another asked him about more episodes of his TV show Luther, to which he said: "I don't know about that".

That's my problem right there.
