47-year-old ‘Cats’ actor Idris Elba believes he contracted the novel coronavirus from the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister, 44-year-old Sophie Grégoire Trudeau!
Elba who’s now in quarantine claims that the date he got the coronavirus was the same day he hugged Sophie, who also has coronavirus. Elba says in a new video update to press: “I know I’ve been exposed to it from March 4. That’s when the person (Sophie Trudeau) that came up positive, that was the time I got in contact with that person (Sophie).”
Elba didn’t directly mention Sophie Trudeau but says that he found out on the same Friday that news broke about Sophie Trudeau having coronavirus. Idris reveals: “On Friday last week I was told that someone that I had been in contact with had tested positive. And I’m on location, about to start a film and the news breaks that this person, who is also in the public eye, had tested positive.” Idris and Sophie Trudeau had met at a WE Day Charity event hosted at The SSE Arena in London on MArch 4. ‘The Dark Tower’ actor continues: “My job made me test immediately. I had to test because it meant putting a lot of people at risk — if I had been exposed, then the people I was working with would also have been exposed. I wasn’t showing any symptoms but I am very glad I made that decision [to get tested] because I have been out of contact with everyone since.” Watch the actor’s video update below and let us know: COULD SOPHIE TRUDEAU REALLY BE THE REASON IDRIS ELBA HAS CORONAVIRUS?
