Joey King and Jacob Elordi: An On-Camera Love Story
According to reports, Joey King, 18, is in a relationship with the 21-year-old Australian actor Jacob Elordi. King and Elordi have been dating each other since The Kissing Booth stopped filming almost a year ago.
When King and Elordi first met, they, along with Joel Courtney, went out to dinner and had a great time. Eventually, King and Elordi became best friends while filming the movie.
King felt that Elordi was amazing. They had a lot in common and they loved spending time together.
After a month, King realized that she was starting to like Elordi, more than a friend. And, Elordi felt the same! In fact, their relationship got pretty serious pretty fast, as Elordi moved into King’s house in Sherman Oaks for a year. And neither of them shied away from giving out details about their relationship, posting pictures all over social media.
However, after the movie was released, their relationship came into the spotlight. King then became aware of how much she posted about her and Elordi on social media.
In an interview, King said, “I guess I feel like it’s almost scary giving people what they want so much, because of how much people are obsessed with our relationship.”
The actress further added, “I’m like, ‘Maybe I should keep some of that to myself.’ I go back and forth on that.” It also helped that the movie became a huge Netflix hit, with everyone loving the fact that this on-screen couple became a real-life one.
But the publicity might have become too much and rumors surfaced that King’s account got hacked! This seems to be the reason behind the lack of photos lately, leading many to wonder if the two had indeed split!
However, there are no reports to confirm that the two ended their relationship. It seems as though they might just be taking a break from the many posts of each other on social media.
For now, King wants to keep her relationship with him private, especially now that they’ve both been flung squarely in the spotlight! So, don’t worry, folks! It looks like Jacob Elordi and Joey King are still together.
