South Africa-born comedian, Trevor Noah, has set the records straight on why he is leaving The Daily Show after seven years.
According to Noah, his decision to leave the show has got nothing to do with claims that he is dating the singer of ‘One Kiss’, Dua Lipa.
He set the records straight in a video shared on The Daily Show’s official Instagram page.
That was after he and the singer had reportedly been seen together having dinner at a Jamaican restaurant in New York. Their hangout sparked dating rumours.
But in the video sighted by www.africanentertainment.com, Noah insisted that he was not leaving the Show because of Dua Lipa.
He told The Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr that “That is not how it happened. Please do not believe anything you read in the tabloids. It’s not true.”
He went on to provide more details to the audience about his exit from The Daily Show in the video shared on Instagram.
He jokingly says “That is why I am telling you I am going to leave, so that it’s not like an Irish goodbye.”
He added: “It would be weird if I was just, like, on a Thursday, ‘bye everybody’, and then Monday comes and it’s just, like, ‘Where’s Trevor?’ and you just see me on Instagram sipping something on the beach.”
