Love & Hip-Hop star K. Michelle still has her mind on Idris Elba. The two dated for 8 months almost five years ago, but their time together is still engrained in Michelle's mind. Maybe it was his gentleman-like demeanor, or his English accent. Actually, according to K. Michelle, it was his head game. Michelle sat down with TMZ's Raquel Harper for her BET series Raq Rants, and opened up about her time with Elba.

"That was the whole album girl," jokes K. Michelle, insinuating that Elba influenced the entire creation of her latest project. "That was the one person who I learned the most from about business," she explains. "'Cause he was like a fucking drug dealer and DJ, hood ass Memphis nigga for real with an accent, behind closed doors." That's when Raq interrupts to dive into something more sexual. She inquires about Michelle singing on a song about Elba's head game. "He's great. He was very passionate. That was so good," states K. Michelle as she melts back into her seat, flustered by her memories. Although it's been years since she and Elba dated, the veteran actor still has his exes praising his existence.
