He went on to detail an incident where he was pictured hugging a married female friend over the summer after he split from Minka Kelly.

Trevor said family members had called his friend’s husband alleging he was having an affair with her. 

The interview comes after Dua and Trevor appeared to have some stellar chemistry as they concluded the evening on a high note with a romantic kiss and a sweet hug before going their separate ways.

An onlooker told DailyMail.com: ‘They were quietly sat away from everyone else at restaurant. It was clear they were into each other and sat close together throughout the meal. They left together and walked, stopping for long embraces and on the second kiss with hugs.’

The new romance comes as Trevor is leaving The Daily Show after seven years at the helm during which the late-night infotainment show’s viewership declined dramatically. 

After walking side-by-side for a while, Dua and Trevor turned to each other in an embrace. Trevor placed his arm delicately on the hitmaker’s back, while she stood on her toes and wrapped her arms around his shoulders as they kissed.

They clearly felt plenty of affection, and the stand-up star followed up the kiss by resting his head sweetly on Dua’s shoulders while they hugged. 

Dua and Trevor don’t appear to have given any previous hints at a potential romance. Their date night comes after both split from partners they had been dating for around two years. 

Comedian and talk show host Trevor is leaving The Daily Show after seven years at the helm during which the late-night infotainment show’s viewership declined dramatically.

Noah, who hails from South Africa, took over the show from former host Jon Stewart in 2015.

He revealed the news to a stunned live audience during yesterday’s taping of the show, which runs from Monday-Thursday on Comedy Central. 

Although the show is regularly nominated for Emmy Awards, it has not won since Stewart left.

Viewing figures were typically around 1.5 million for each episode during Stewart’s tenure and rose as high as 2.5 million in 2013.

Dua’s most recent long-term boyfriend was the model Anwar Hadid, 23, the younger brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid.

The two reportedly began dating in June of 2019, shortly after she split from her previous boyfriend. At the time, TMZ reported that the two developed a connection after Anwar played her some of the music he had been working on.

After word got out that the Levitating singer was single, the two started dating and were spotted cozying up at award shows and at his birthday.

At the start of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the two even quarantined together. 

‘I’m very comfortable in the relationship, more so than any others,’ she told Rolling Stone in her cover story for the February 2021 issue. ‘[We] wake up around 9:00, 9:30, shower, get dressed, have a bit of breakfast, take the dog out on a really nice long walk, maybe do some yoga, make some lunch, hang out, watch a movie, play with the animals.’

But the two reportedly would break up and then get back together on and off throughout the relationship, and they were on the rocks by late 2021 due to increased travel keeping them apart.

They were said to have called it quits — seemingly for good — in December of last year.

Prior to her relationship with Anwar, Dua dated the chef and model Isaac Carew from 2015 until early 2017.

She moved on to a brief relationship with Paul Klein, the frontman of the rock band LANY, before getting back together with Carew in early 2018. They broke up a final time in May 2019.

Trevor’s most recent serious relationship was with the actress Minka Kelly. In September 2020, it was reported that they had been dating for some time, even quarantining together early in the pandemic.

They paused the tumultuous relationship in May 2021, only to be seen together again later that month.

The comedian and the TV star were more open about the relationship as the year progressed, but it fizzled out by May of this year.

 Although their don’t appear to have been previous signs that Dua and Trevor are dating, they may have had a high-profile meeting at the Grammy Awards ceremony in Las Vegas in April of this year.
