Minka Kelly may have found new love after her breakup with Trevor Noah.

Kelly, 42, sparked dating rumors over the weekend after being spotted with Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, 35. The couple went on a date to Cafe Stella in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood on Saturday night.

During the sighting, there was no overt public display of affection between them. However, in one photo obtained by Page Six, the musician can be seen stroking Kelly’s hair as they pull into the parking lot.

They allegedly stayed at the restaurant for five hours and didn’t leave until after 1 a.m.

According to the outlet, Kelly’s and Reynolds’ representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Kelly was publicly linked to someone for the first time since her breakup with Noah in May.

Beginning in 2020, the “Friday Night Lights” star and the “Daily Show” host had an on-again, off-again relationship.

Noah purchased a $27.5 million Bel Air mansion for them in 2021, indicating that the couple was getting serious.

According to People, Kelly and the South African comedian were “very happy” together and had a “very serious relationship.”

An insider told People:

“They’re making plans for a future together, and it’s a very stable relationship. They’ve been spending time between coasts over the last year and had been looking for a place in LA as a couple.”

They did, however, call it quits briefly in May 2021. The breakup was confirmed by an anonymous source to Entertainment Tonight, explaining that their:

“work commitments and careers are very different, and they both felt like they should take time apart.”

Kelly is said to have relied on friends, traveled, and kept herself busy after the split, while the Comedy Central host was “doing his things too.”

However, just weeks after their breakup, Noah and Kelly were spotted together in St. Barts, and they rekindled their romance later that year.

According to Page Six, Noah sold the Los Angeles property in March for $1.1 million less than what he paid.

Their second – and final – breakup became public two months later.

A tipster told People in May:

“They have been broken up for a while.”

Noah has since been romantically linked to Dua Lipa, whom he was seen with on a romantic dinner date in New York.
