Trevor Noah was in a relationship with South African beauty Dani Gabriel but the couple have split in recent months
He took her around the world to be by his side on his tour last year
Trevor Noah has moved on to become a US TV star, and he left behind a stunning South African physiotherapist to pursue his American dream, the Africa Cradle can reveal.
Noah has known Gabriel for at least four years and it’s believed they began dating early in 2014. The comedian quickly became smitten with the beautiful brunette and took her around the world to be by his side while on tour.
But following behind-the-scenes talks earlier this year with Comedy Central – the producers of The Daily Show – it was clear Noah’s career was about to explode.
A source close to Noah told Africa Cradle: ‘Dani is an ex-girlfriend. They decided to go their separate ways and are not together anymore, they split a few months ago but are still friends.’
Despite the split Gabriel is still right behind Noah as he takes over from Jon Stewart in the biggest seat in world comedy. She told Africa Cradle that she’s ‘very supportive’ of Noah’s newfound fame and has said she couldn’t be ‘prouder’ of her ex.
And while previously little known Noah is set to become a household name for millions of people, Gabriel still doesn’t see him as a ‘celebrity’. Speaking in Cape Town, she said: ‘Yes he’s going through this huge transition but at the end of the day he’s not a celebrity to me and he’s never treated himself like that and I don’t treat him like that, I don’t bring that in to my life.’
‘It doesn’t make a difference to my life. I don’t talk about my stuff, Trevor doesn’t talk about my stuff.
‘There’s really nothing more that I need to say, whatever’s there is there, beyond that, it is genuinely between me and him.’
But it’s clear that Gabriel has struggled with the split, keeping her Facebook status as ‘in a relationship’ and keeping a large photo of the couple kissing on her home page wall.
However, the physio quickly changed her wall photo to one of three pretty dresses when Africa Cradle asked why she kept Noah’s picture on display now they’ve split.
The couple had several pictures together on Facebook, and Gabriel had a picture of the pair kissing as her main profile picture until recently
