Why did Joey King and Jacob Elordi split? A look at who 'The Kissing Booth 3' stars are dating
If you're looking for the perfect summer romcom, get ready for 'The Kissing Booth 3'. In the third installation of the franchise, Elle has to make the most challenging choice yet, either she heads off the college with Lee or stays closer to her boyfriend Noah. Either way, someone is bound to get hurt.
Joey King and Jacob Elordi's chemistry on screen is undeniable, as they both do a convincing job at bringing their characters to life. So, it comes as no surprise that the pair were formerly together in real life too.
King and Elordi met on the sets of 'The Kissing Booth', and soon they began their whirlwind romance. The two frequently posted about each other on their social media. However, back in late 2018, rumors of their split began to form. Following this, Elordi went on a social media hiatus and King even began deleting photos of the pair, as reported by Distracify. King later opened up about the break-up, in a conversation with Refinery 29.
"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 said.
In a conversation with Elle, the actress maintained that she would prefer not to date actors. "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." she explained.
During the filming of the sequel, King pointed out that working together again would bring in some questions about the former couple's romance.
"No one's thinking to themselves, 'That was easy,' because it wasn't," she said, while talking to ET. "I'm sure people will analyze every movement and every detail. And you know what? Let them. But at the end of the day, I was just thrilled to be Elle Evans again." she added. "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," she explained.
