Joey King is at the peak of her career with her latest projects The Kissing Booth 2 and David Leitch’s Bullet Train alongside Brad Pitt. The kissing Booth 2 is a hit show with the third part in progress. However, amidst all this, there are also rumors about her romance with her co-star Taylor Zakhar Perez. The two have become very close especially during the quarantine time and fans are shipping them.
For the ones who are unaware, Joey and Jacob dated for more than a year before calling it quit in 2018. In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, King was hesitant when asked if she would ever date an actor again, especially after her breakup with co-star Jacob Elordi. The 21-year-old actress confessed to Howard Stern.”No. I couldn’t. 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.”
However, King looks back at her relationship with Elordi and cherished it as she expressed, “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.” Yet her aficionados want Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez to become a couple. Well, now we can just wait and watch.
Currently, we wait for The Kissing Booth 3 which is expected to release in 2021. It will see Elle Evans (King) choose between attending Berkeley with her best friend Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney) and Harvard with boyfriend Noah Flynn (Elordi).
