With Valentine’s Day just days away, it’s undeniable that romance is in the air at least it is for Hollywwod star Idris Elba.
The actor proposed to his Somali girlfriend, model Sabrina Dhowre on Saturday while attending a screening of his directorial debut, Yardie, at the Rio Cinema in London.
In a video doing rounds online, Elba is seen popping the big question on one knee in front of an entire audience, and then Dhowre emotionally accepts with a yes.
The cinema’s management also confirmed the proposal on their twitter account, saying, “Another @riocinema first! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie.”
Most women online were more heartbroken than congratulatory. Just moments after the news broke, dedicated Elba fans took to Twitter to voice their, sad disappointment, surrounding the engagement.
