However, in August 2020, rumors about their relationship broke out. Many people have attributed that their relationship was private at first due to the COVID-19 pandemic as they had to stay indoors. This analogy has earned them the title of ‘Quarantine Couple.’

Also, neither of them has come out to confirm nor deny the relationship rumors openly.
But keeping their relationships private has also not been very easy for both of them because they have been spotted on several occasions together.

Like you already know, neither of them has come out to confirm the relationship rumors; on that same note, neither of them spoke out about their breakup.

Following his new job with Comedy Central to host The Daily Show, Trevor Noah moved to the United States. But because Dani Gabriel was already an established physiotherapist in South Africa, and her family and friends were also in the country.
