“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.”
On the other and Dani is a private person. She refused to talk about her split to the media.
“I don’t need to show my support publicly for Trevor, it doesn’t need validating to anybody else besides me and him. Anything that needs to be said I’ve said to him personally. There’s really nothing more than I need to say, whatever’s there is there, beyond that, it is genuinely between me and him.”
Though Trevor and Dani are no longer dating, one thing about her still grabs the attention of media. Unbelievably, Dani and Taylor; Trevor’s present girlfriend share a striking similarity. Besides their similar interest in music, acting, and fitness, they are so much similar to a look-alike.
