She’s got a type! Kissing Booth 2 star Joey King has romanced quite a few celebrity fellows since making a name for herself in Hollywood. We dissected her dating history to give you the full scoop on all of her past (and present?) boyfriends — including costar Taylor Zakhar Perez. Spoiler alert: She’s worked with all her former flames.
The Act star’s most high-profile relationship to date was with Euphoria breakout star Jacob Elordi. Joey and the Australian actor met on the set of the first Kissing Booth film, in which they starred opposite one another. Initially, their connection was platonic, though the Los Angeles native revealed she thought Jacob was “cute” when they first met in 2017.
“Before long I started to realize, ‘Hey, I think I kind of like this person!’ It was such an interesting experience meeting your boyfriend on set because you spend so much time together and become so close so fast,” Joey told Bello magazine. “We were spending 17 hours a day together, and all of us would hang out after work and watch movies together and stuff. It was great.”
Their love was on full-display throughout the press junket for the Netflix film — but their romance fizzled out by November 2018 when they quietly split. The original Kissing Booth film got pretty popular, so much so that a sequel was greenlit despite the fact that Joey and Jacob had broken up.
However, Joey and her former flame seemed to be ready and willing to put their past aside for the good of the movie. “What’s the most, um, correct way to go about this?” Joey told Cosmopolitan in their August 2020 issue. “Elle Evans needs her Noah Flynn, and whatever that means for my personal life, I’ll do anything to make sure the story of my character who I care about so much is complete.”
After Jacob, the starlet went on to cozy up to The Act producer Steven Piet. They started dating in September 2019 and were first spotted at a Harry Potter screening alongside Joey’s sisters and their boyfriends. It’s unclear when they split — but they seem to have moved on from one another. Joey was recently spotted on a weekend getaway with Taylor, 28, and friends … and there may just be a spark between the costars.
