“When we first met, me, him and Joel [Courtney] went out to dinner and we had the best, most fun night ever. By the end of dinner, we had like six inside jokes. We were so close and throughout filming, I was just best friends with Jacob,” Joey told Seventeen in June 2018. “I guess there was no moment, but I feel like the friendship kind of naturally was like, ‘Oh, hey, this person is super frickin’ awesome. We have so much in common and we really love spending time together. Maybe there’s something more there.’ It was never like this moment of ‘OMG, I can’t let him see me like this.’ You know what I mean? We were open books with each other. There was nothing we wouldn’t talk about. He’s just so great.”
In November 2018, after over a year of dating, news broke that the duo had called it quits. The exes had to reunite to film the second Kissing Booth movie months after their split, and working together with their rocky past was definitely awkward. It’s safe to say that this former couple has had some serious ups and downs.
“Going back, and doing that, and making the sacrifice, obviously, what everyone is thinking about,” Joey said on the “Mood With Lauren Elizabeth” podcast. “I’m not outwardly addressing, but what I’m kinda on the sly addressing, making those sacrifices was totally worth it.”
But wait, when did they realize that they had feelings for each other and when did they make things official? What caused them to go their separate ways in the end? What was it like to work together on the sequel together and where do they stand now?
