It’s all over. After two years of dating, Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly have called it quits.
The Daily Show host, 38, and the Friday Night Lights alum, 41, “have been broken up for a while,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “There is no ill will between them, and everything is friendly.”
Noah and Kelly were first linked in September 2020, though the couple was known to keep their relationship private.
“They’ve been dating for a while, well before the [coronavirus] quarantine started,” a source told Us exclusively at the time of their romance. Later that month, the comedian was seen assisting the Roommate actress with the loading of luggage into his New York City apartment.
Us announced the couple’s divorce in May 2021. They did, however, reconcile one month later.
In June 2021, an insider told Us, “Minka and Trevor have been on and off.” “They’re back together now. They realized they are happier together than apart. They have already gone on vacation and are spending a lot of time together. They’re working on their relationship while having fun with each other.”
For the first time, the political commentator acknowledged their relationship on Instagram in December 2021. Noah could be seen at a packed table of people sitting next to Kelly in a birthday post for a friend.
One month later, the typically private Charlie’s Angels star shared an Instagram photo of herself and the South African native in his home country. “Travel to South Africa.” Look for friends like these. Have the vacation of a lifetime. “Thank you, Mzansi,” she wrote alongside the photo.Kelly has spoken openly about why she prefers to keep her relationships private.
“I’m not dating anyone now,” she told the New York Post in October 2018, “but for some reason, for me, things turn into clickbait craziness, and I’ve been through hell.” So I’m not saying anything now.” “You’ll never see me with a man on my social media feed,” Kelly added. Except when I’m married. But perhaps not. “I enjoy keeping some things hidden.”
Noah has also kept his personal life mostly private, but in a 2016 interview with South Africa’s The Citizen, he discussed his thoughts on the concept of love. “I realize that if I love myself and have friends and family who love me, I can exist in a constant state of love,” he explained. “That’s what I discovered: happiness is a choice; happiness is hard work,” he explained.
Noah previously dated singer and model Jordyn Taylor from 2015 to 2018 and musician Dani Gabriel from 2014 to 2015. Kelly, for her part, was in a relationship with Derek Jeter from 2008 to 2011. She has had relationships with Donald Faison, Chris Evans, and John Mayer.
