On Wednesday, September 28, pop star Dua Lipa and comedian Trevor Noah were seen out sharing an intimate dinner in New York City at the East Village restaurant Miss Lily’s. An insider told Page Six that the spot was Noah’s choice, and that it was “definitely a date.”
The couple were dressed in casual date night clothes, Noah wearing an olive green jacket and loose cut black pants. Dua Lipa had on a black leather jacket over large denim jeans, and a pair of leopard print heels below.
While Miss Lipa is apparently “smitten” with the Daily Show host, they’re still only in the very “early stages” of the dating process and not officially a couple. They were spotted sitting close together as they enjoyed their meal, then out walking and even hugging. One photo appeared to show the pair sharing a kiss. They did apparently go home separately, and the source suggested that the image of a smooch was more likely a “maybe a corner lips kiss.”
“There is definitely interest on both ends,” the source added.
But another source told People that Noah and Lipa “just friends” despite the rumors and photographs.
Both of the stars have left relationships in the last year. Lipa dated model Anwar Hadid for two years before calling it quits in December of 2021.
“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 then, but it appears they have not come back together.
Noah broke up with his actress girlfriend Minka Kelly in May of this year after sharing an on-again and off-again relationship since 2020. Another insider told People that Kelly had a good attitude about the split, saying, “She is very happy. She’d rather be single than waste her time with the wrong guy.”
