In addition to a special feature all about how a man should rock a three piece suit or look, the 6’3, 200 pounds of fineness talks about his former marriage and the baby momma who lied to him about a son who wasn’t his, all while vacationing (and DJ’ing) in Ibiza.

On his ex wife, a London woman he had an on-and-off relationship with and married at 26

“I liked the idea of being married.  I was focused in on what I was trying to do in my life. And my girl supported me.”

On their divorce, which happened when his now ex-wife was pregnant

“I had to keep going back and forth to New York, to London, to try and make a bit of money real quick.” Back in the States, Elba’s wife “didn’t adjust to the culture as quickly as I did.” And he was gone a lot. “We just had a hard time. The next thing you know, we broke up.”

On the son he THOUGHT was his, but discovered the baby momma lied to him

“The celebration of having a son—from a man’s perspective, it’s massive.” He told friends about it. He told reporters about it. Then came the suggestion—not from the child’s mother, but from elsewhere—that not everything was what it appeared to be. “It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me,” Elba says. “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”

Eventually, Elba decided to take a paternity test, which showed the child wasn’t his. “To be given that and then have it taken away so harshly,” he says, “was like taking a full-on punch in the face: POW.”

“You know, the truth is—like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.” He looks directly at me when he says this. “But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the fuck back up, and I ain’t aiming to take another punch in the face ever again. Do you understand what I’m saying? It happened to me. I moved on.”
