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 and the pair announced their engagement in March 2022, a month after the producer got down on one knee.
The Hollywood couple met on the set of Joey’s Hulu series The Act and have been going strong ever since. They started dating shortly after Joey and former costar Jacob Elordi‘s whirlwind romance. The Kissing Booth stars took their love from the screen to real life, but called it quits in November 2018 after nearly a year together.
“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.”
Despite their breakup, the duo reunited for the second and third Kissing Booth movies. Over the years, Joey has spoken candidly about working alongside her ex on the film’s set — especially on the more romantic scenes.
“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.”
In a separate interview, the Ramona and Beezus star make it clear that she “couldn’t” ever date another actor.
“I think it’s a good thing we dated in the first place. I learned the most I’ve ever learned in my life from him,” Joey shared on the SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show in August 2020. “I think that it’s awesome to date someone in your field, who gets it, but doing the same exact thing as somebody is tough. It’s really tough.”
