Finding love! Joey King has been romantically linked to a few of her costars over the years, along with other major stars, but is the Netflix actress off the market? She’s currently in a relationship with producer Steven Piet.
The duo met after Steven produced her Hulu series The Act, and have been going strong ever since. Of course, it’s no secret that their romance came just after Joey and ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi called it quits. The former flames dated after starring alongside each other in The Kissing Booth, and fans were seriously living for their relationship. Their characters in the Netflix movie — Elle and Noah — were legit goals, so when they took their love off the screen and into real life, it was everything! But unfortunately, after a year together, the couple shocked the world by calling it quits.
“All you can really do at that point is shut your phone off and crawl into your sister’s bed and watch Friends with her, because when you’re going through something and the world wants to go through it with you or [wants] to get every piece of detail from you about it, it’s really difficult. Some of these things are just meant for you,” she told Refinery29 in July 2019, when speaking about their split. “I don’t fault it, but it was a little difficult going through some of that stuff a couple months ago. Now I feel good, and they’ve calmed down a little, which is nice.”
After their breakup, the duo reunited for the second and third Kissing Booth movies. What was it like filming romantic scenes with her real-life ex? Joey spilled all the tea!
“I’m a fan with how [the film] resonated with the world, it resonated with me,” she said on the “Mood With Lauren Elizabeth” podcast in October 2019. “So, going back and doing that and making the sacrifice of what, obviously, everyone is thinking about — outwardly addressing, but what I’m kind of on the sly addressing, making those sacrifices was totally worth it.”
Once the Kissing Booth 2 premiered, some fans were convinced that Joey started dating costar Taylor Zakhar Perez. But after much speculation, the duo confirmed that they were nothing more than friends. So, J-14 went ahead and broke down everything you need to know about Joey’s love life.
