Just weeks after Idris Elba swore up and down that he would never get married again…

Idris has just introduced his new girlfriend to the world, going public with model and actress Sabrina Dhowre at his movie premiere last weekend.

Elba, 45, was first rumored to be dating the 29-year-old after they were spotted together in Manchester last month. 

The couple went public with their relationship on Friday night when they attended the premiere party for his new movie, "Molly's Game" at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Idris and Sabrina have reportedly been dating for seven months. The model was crowned Miss Vancouver in 2014.

IdrisElba has a new boo! The UK actor introduced his new model girlfriend #SabrinaDhowre to the world Sunday at the premiere of his new film #TheMountainBetweenUs at TIFF. S\O to @tracimelchor for getting that tea on his date.

An insider said, "It’s believed Idris and Sabrina have been dating for around seven months. They’re having a great time getting to know each other and Idris feels strongly enough about Sabrina for them to be talked about in public. Having her on his arm on a red carpet shows how serious he is about her as he doesn’t do these things lightly. He usually likes to keep that side of his life private but he’s proud to show Sabrina off on his arm. It’s been a different story for Sabrina, who has uploaded several pictures of Idris to her Snapchat account."

This is the first known relationship for the actor since his split with makeup artist Naiyana Garth, with whom he shares a three-year-old son named Winston. The actor dumped Garth last year just days after he was spotted partying with supermodel, Naomi Campbell. 

Elba was rumored to have been dating singer K. Michelle on the side during his relationship with Garth. Michelle claimed she was Elba's "glorified side chick" for eight months. She later revealed she met him at an awards ceremony and had no clue he was in a relationship with Garth until he revealed she was pregnant. 

Idris has been married twice before. The hunky actor tied the knot with makeup artist Hanne Norgaard in 1999. They have a teenage daughter together named Isan. However, Norgaard and Elba split four years into the marriage. 

Elba went on to marry property attorney Sonya Hamlin in 2006, but the couple split just a few months later. 

Elba, who is the son of immigrants from Ghana and Sierra Leone, also then dated pole dancer Desiree Newberry. After four years she had a son called Otenga, but Elba became suspicious when the boy did not resemble him, and a paternity test later revealed he was not the father.
