Daniel later confronted the rumors that he was keeping the romance on the down-low, telling Daily News in January 2012, “I wasn’t trying to keep it secret, that’s the thing. Everyone’s like, ‘Wow, how did you keep that so quiet? I wasn’t trying to. I just do my job and I go home, we go out to a restaurant but we don’t go anywhere that there’s going to be paparazzi. We don’t go to clubs, we don’t really go to bars. So, we just kind of hang out with friends and have dinner. There was never a concentrated effort to try and conceal her from the world, but that’s just how it ended up. It just sort of happened that way in the end.”
But, the love ultimately came to an end in October of that year with Coker’s father revealing to London’s Daily Mail that “Rosie’s not in this country at the moment. She’s trying to move on. She won’t want to talk about it.”
