Are Trevor Noah And Minka Kelly Dating?

TV comedian and Grammy host Trevor Noah and actress Kelly were first linked as a couple in August 2020, with a source telling People the pair were in a "very serious relationship."

The pair appeared to go public with their relationship after Noah uploaded to his Instagram page a picture of them sitting side by side during a visit to his native South Africa.

In January 2022, Elle noted Trevor Kelly and Minka Noah follow each other on Instagram and "have 'liked' some of each other's posts, dating back to November 2019."

Although the rumored couple remained tight-lipped about their love lives, they provided ammunition for celebrity gossip sites after being pictured together at a California fast-food chain, published in E! in February 2021.

It was then reported, again by E!, that Kelly and Noah broke up in May 2021, only to reconcile shortly afterwards and vacation together on the Caribbean island of St. Barts.

But, with both of them refusing to confirm or deny the romance, fans of Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly will have to continue guessing about the real nature of their relationship.

The Grammys 2022 Nominations

On a short comedy skit for CBS late last month, Grammys host Trevor Noah professed to listen to nominees Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.

However, by far the biggest star ahead of the ceremony itself is Jazz and R&B star and bandleader Batiste.

He leads the 2022 Grammy nominations with 11 nods, a considerable achievement, given that many are all in different musical categories.

And also celebrating a critically acclaimed year are U.S. genre-blurring songwriter Billy Eilish and pop newcomer Rodrigo, with each boasting seven nominations.
