Dua Lipa was darn near levitating during her dinner date with Trevor Noah earlier this week, Page Six has exclusively learned.
The London-born pop star, 27, and the South African comedian, 38, were spotted Wednesday night sharing an intimate meal at Miss Lily’s in New York City’s East Village, which an insider tells us was a place of Noah’s choosing.
Our informant says Lipa was “smitten” on what was “definitely a date,” though we’re told the pair is in the “very early” stages of getting to know each other.
A separate source tells us Lipa and Noah are not officially a couple.
Photos from the unlikely pair’s outing show them sitting closely during dinner, yet far away from other patrons, before heading off on a stroll afterward.
The duo was seen walking, talking and hugging, with the soon-to-be former talk show host appearing to give the singer-songwriter a kiss.
Our source tells us Noah was “a gentleman” the whole evening and that the two went home “separately.” As for whether the pictures show him planting a smooch on Lipa’s cheek or her lips, we’re told there was “maybe a corner lips kiss.”
“There is definitely interest on both ends,” our insider insists.
For their romantic rendezvous, the “One Kiss” songstress sported a black leather jacket and oversized denim jeans, which she paired with leopard-print kitten heels, minimal makeup and long, straight hair.
The 2021 Grammys host matched his date’s vibe, opting for an olive green jacket and slouchy black pants.
Reps for the stars did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.
Lipa’s last public relationship was with model Anwar Hadid, 23. They called it quits in December 2021 after more than two years of dating.
“Dua and Anwar are currently taking a break from their relationship and are spending time apart. They’re figuring things out right now,” a source told People at the time, though they never publicly rekindled their romance.
Noah — who announced Thursday he’d be leaving “The Daily Show” after seven years — last dated Minka Kelly, 42. They parted ways this past May after having been together since 2020.
“Minka is single now,” an insider told People at the time, adding that the actress had “the best attitude” regarding the split.
“She is very happy. She’d rather be single than waste her time with the wrong guy,” the source noted.
However, another informant close to both Noah and Kelly told the outlet that they had actually “been broken up for a while.”
Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa Sure Look Cozy
It’s that time of year again: There’s a chill in the air and everyone is soft-launching their relationships. Spotted out looking pretty couple-y this week? Soon-to-be-former Daily Show host Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa.
The pair was seen dining at Miss Lily’s in New York on Wednesday, where they apparently shared a kiss before leaving — and the Daily Mail has the extremely blurry photos to prove it.
Does this mean they’re dating? Who can say. They are both reportedly single. Noah split from on-again-off-again girlfriend Minka Kelly earlier this year while Lipa split from Hadid sibling Anwar Hadid last year. Noah did just announce that he’s stepping down from hosting The Daily Show, so he might be about to have a lot more time on his hands. Either way, congrats to them on the soft launch — and our condolences to Jack Harlow.
Trevor Noah, Dua Lipa spark dating rumors amid his ‘Daily Show’ exit
Outgoing “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah made headlines Thursday for announcing the conclusion of his seven-year stint on the Comedy Central show. But not long before that, he sparked dating rumors with “Levitating” pop star Dua Lipa.
The comedian and “Sweetest Pie” singer were photographed this week apparently locking lips just days before he announced the end of his Emmy-nominated run on the late-night series.
Noah, 38, and Lipa, 27, were spotted Wednesday at Miss Lily’s in the East Village in New York City, according to the Daily Mail, which published several photos of their rendezvous. (The very same publication published a Friday column by Meghan McCain titled “I loved The Daily Show and Trevor Noah ruined it.”)
They “quietly sat away from everyone else at the restaurant,” a source told the tabloid. “It was clear they were into each other and sat close together throughout the meal.”
Noah and Lipa reportedly left together after the meal and took a walk, “stopping for long embraces,” a kiss and hugs.
Representatives for Noah and Lipa did not immediately respond Friday to The Times’ requests for comment.
The rumored romance comes not long after each of them called it quits on their previous high-profile relationships. The “Cold Heart” singer split from her longtime boyfriend, model Anwar Hadid — brother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid — in December. The “Born a Crime” author reportedly ended things with actor-girlfriend Minka Kelly last May.
It’s unclear when their relationship started, though the Daily Mail speculated that they crossed paths at this year’s Grammy Awards, which Noah hosted in Las Vegas last April and where the English singer presented with rapper Megan Thee Stallion. (It was a twinning moment reminiscent of a stunt by music legends Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.)
Noah told his studio audience and viewers Thursday that he would step away from “The Daily Show” seven years after taking over the post from comedian Jon Stewart. He criticized President Trump, hosted luminaries, weathered the volatile COVID-19 pandemic and even feuded with rapper Kanye West during his run. (In case you didn’t read McCain’s piece, the conservative argued that “Noah never lived up to his predecessor” in the ratings and that he “got by on his ‘cool kid’ clout in the media.”)
“It’s time,” the late-night host said Thursday on TV and online.
“I realized there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows,” the South Africa-born comic added. “I miss just being everywhere, doing everything.”
Representatives for the series said that there is “no timetable for his departure” and that they’re “working together on next steps.” Here’s hoping they include addressing the dating rumors in his upcoming monologues.
Dua Lipa, Amal Clooney, and More of the Bestest Party Pics This Week
Happy Friday, New York! It’s the final day of my internship at the Cut, and therefore, my final Party Pics roundup. Throughout the summer, fashionable attendees stunned us at lavish Hamptons parties, brand celebration dinners, and NYFW events. Now, as we enter a new season, things are starting to calm down. Still, Dua Lipa, Julia Fox, and more stepped out this week to celebrate at events including a Chanel launch party, the New York Ballet Fall Fashion Gala, and the Taste of Asia benefit.
Okay, so this isn’t quite a little black dress, but Dua Lipa knew how to pull the color off, wearing this Versace gown with button details to the Clooney Foundation for Justice Albie Awards.
In her beaded Atelier Versace gown at the Clooney Foundation for Justice Albie Awards, Amal Clooney looked straight out of the 1920s. Her husband looked dapper too.
I appreciate Julia Fox’s consistency when it comes to picking daring looks. Fox attended the New York Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala wearing this dramatic metallic gown and sporting bleached eyebrows, because of course she did.
It’s fall, which means it’s time to start bringing out our favorite statement jackets. At the New York Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala, Queen Latifah wore this emerald-green crystal-embellished number.
Soo Joo Park, the face of Chanel’s Première Original Edition watch, sported the timepiece at the dinner to celebrate its launch.
Also in attendance at Chanel’s celebratory dinner, Lily Allen sported a heart-shaped Chanel bag, Chanel shoes, and a Chanel top and trousers. I can’t blame her for wearing the brand from head to toe.
Not all party outfits are created equal, but Jessica Williams managed to choose something both cool and comfortable for the “Entergalactic” Brunch to celebrate Black love. The puffed sleeves and lace detailing are fun, and her white sneakers make me want to wear the outfit asap.
Who said tye-dye can’t be fancy? Anitta wore this multicolored ruffled gown to the Sotheby’s Impact Gala and paired it with a purple asymmetrical bag.
Kelly Ripa and Bethenny Frankel looked ready to celebrate the launch of Ripa’s new book at her dinner party at Scarpetta.
Teddy Quinlivan bravely wore a mostly orange outfit to Zegna’s celebration of the launch of its Oasi Cashmere Collection, and she pulled it off by committing to the color coordination.
Wen Zhou, CEO and co-founder of 3.1 Phillip Lim, and actress Jamie Chung looked chic in their neutral-toned jackets at the second annual Taste of Asia benefit.
Tomás Matos wore this blue-and-white-striped dress with a reddish-orange accent to celebrate the Keith Haring x Pandora collection. They paired their look with a matching purse, hat, and nail polish.
Rachel Trail and Roxette Arisa celebrated the launch of their podcast, Bush Babies, with a late-night soirée. With their cutout leather outfits and grungy makeup, the pair were this week’s resident party girls.
