Idris Elba has given the boot to his longtime girlfriend and mother of his son, and sources say that superstar model Naomi Campbell is behind the split.

A source says that Elba has moved out of the London flat he shared with makeup artist Naiyana Garth and their son just days after he was seen partying with Campbell at the New York City hotspot 1 Oak, then leaving together.

"It ended very recently and it's too soon for her to talk about it," an insider told The Sun. "They've kept it very quiet so she's surprised people know already.

"It's very sad that this has happened while Idris is experiencing the highest points of his professional career and they can't celebrate it with each other."

Rumors started flying about the status of Elba's relationship when he showed up at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 30 with his teen daughter from his first marriage rather than Garth.

Then, at Sunday night's British Film Awards, he neglected to thank Garth during his acceptance speech for his win for Best Actor in Beasts of No Nation. When asked if he was in fact single and ready to mingle, he replied cryptically, "That's the media for you."

Reps for both Elba and Campbell have not commented on the rumors, but Campbell may have left some Twitter clues to the mystery. First, she tweeted this congratulatory message after Elba's SAG win, complete with kisses:
