The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah ‘splits’ from Minka Kelly months after buying $27.5m love nest

THE Daily Show’s Trevor Noah and actress Minka Kelly have reportedly split after less than a year together.

The couple first sparked romance rumors last August and an insider said at the time that they were “very serious” despite neither publicly confirming their relationship.

In September, the pair were photographed for the first time going into his New York City apartment, where E! News reported she had been living “for some time”.

A source told People that the relationship was “very stable” and prompted them to look for a place as a couple after spending time “between coasts”.

In December, it was revealed that Trevor had bought a sprawling $27.5million home in Bel-Air as he and Minka made “plans for a future together”.

However, the pair were last photographed together in Trevor’s white SUV celebrating his birthday in February.

And now a source now told People that the 37-year-old host and the Friday Night Lights, 40, star have called it quits.

In January, we revealed that Trevor had bought a stunning six-bedroom and 11 bathroom property in Bel-Air from LA architect Mark Rios, the day before New Year’s Eve.

The 11,000-square-foot three-storey home features an infinity pool, a game room and a wine cellar.

The Los Angeles Times reported that architect Mark Rios originally built it for himself after being inspired by Japanese aesthetics.

From the street, the property takes on the appearance of stacked blocks, while the view from the back sees the white walls combine with the lush green hedges and lawn.

Pictures at the time gave a glimpse inside the striking property and showed wooden stairs next to a wall of glass which led to a library full of books.

Visitors can take their pick from comfy sofas or bar-style stools to sit and watch a movie in the screening room.

With a host of facilities spread over the three floors, a much-needed elevator has also been installed.

The property also boasts a gym, steam room and office. The spacious living areas include a dining room that looks out to the pool.

Noah’s latest purchase comes after he paid $20.5 million on a similar Bel-Air mansion before he sold it last summer for an increased $21.7 million.

Noah joined The Daily Show as a correspondent in 2014 before taking on the role of host the following year.

The comedian also won a Primetime Emmy in 2017.
