Who is Trevor Noah’s girlfriend?

Trevor Noah is reportedly dating actress Minka Kelly.

An insider confirmed to People back in August 2020 that the couple were “very happy,” and that “it’s a very serious relationship.” Trevor and Minka were first spotted in New York City over the summer, sparking the initial speculation about their coupledom.

The couple met through mutual friends, who told Trevor about the huge crush that Minka had on him for years. Trevor reached out and the two have been together ever since. Trevor is extremely private about his personal life, and neither his nor Minka's representatives have confirmed the relationship. 

Who has Trevor dated before Minka?

Trevor’s first major relationship was back in his native South Africa, with a physiotherapist named Dani Gabriel. The couple started dating back in 2014, and Dani spent time traveling with Trevor as he honed his comedy skills — doing standup and working part-time on The Daily Show as a foreign correspondent.

Unfortunately, when Trevor was tapped to succeed Jon Stewart as the new host of the program, Dani didn’t want to uproot her professional career and personal life, so the two decided to split in 2015.

Shortly after moving to America, Trevor started dating real estate agent, model, and singer Jordyn Taylor. They were together for nearly four years when they started growing apart.

Trevor and Minka were reportedly back together in June 2021 following a split.

As of June 2021, Trevor is still romantically linked to Minka following a sighting of the couple out and about in New York City.

“Minka and Trevor have been on-and-off,” a source told Us Weekly. “Now they’re back together. They realized they’re both happier being together than apart.”

The insider added: “They already went on vacation together and are spending a lot of time together. They’re working on their relationship while just enjoying each other’s company."

Who has Minka Kelly dated before Trevor?

Minka, too, has had her fair share of mega-famous boyfriends. Some of her exes include Captain America’s Chris Evans, who she dated in 2007 and then again in 2012; Derek Jeter, whom she dated from 2008 to 2011 and is her longest known relationship; and Grey’s Anatomy heartthrob Jesse Williams in 2017.
