Who is Joey King boyfriend now?
Joey King’s boyfriend now is… nobody. The popular actress is not seeing anyone after her alleged split with Jacob Elordi. The two are rumored to be getting back together, perhaps because they are both going to star in “The Kissing Booth 2” in 2019.
Is she split from Jacob Elordi?
Joey and Jacob appear to have split sometime in November 2018. Jacob posted on his Twitter account that he was going to take a break from social media, and his fans thought that it was due to his obligations, as he was just starting to film for the “Euphoria” TV series. However, a few days after, he tweeted ‘thank god I have my dog tho’, he deleted his Instagram account entirely.
Jacob’s actions started many rumors regarding the two’s break-up, which hasn’t been confirmed by them but it is certain that they’ve stopped uploading pictures of the two together on their social media accounts, and haven’t been seen together in public.
Who is Jacob Elordi?
Jacob was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, on 26 June 1997, so under the zodiac sign of Cancer and still holding Australian nationality – he rose to prominence after he appeared in “The Kissing Booth” movie alongside Joey King. It was the first time the two had met, and they apparently fell for each other immediately, and soon began dating.
Jacob attended St. Joseph’s College and matriculated in 2015. He launched his career while he was still in high school while the first Hollywood movie in which he appeared was “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” in 2017 – in the same year, he appeared in the “Swinging Safari” movie and “The Kissing Booth”. He played the lead character Elordi in “The Mortuary Collection” horror movie in 2018 and is currently shooting for two TV series – one of them is “Euphoria”.
Jacob is very popular on his Instagram account as he has nearly six million followers although he’s has only uploaded 11 pictures so far.
Joey King’s early life and education
Joey spent her entire childhood in Los Angeles, with her parents Terry and Jamie King, and her two siblings Hunter and Kelli King. She rarely talks about her family and therefore not much is known about them – her father is a retired arm-wrestling champion, who was the consultant for the popular director and actor Sylvester Stallone at some point of his life. Joey is said to have inherited her love for acting from her grandmother who performed in the theatre. She fell in love with acting at a very young age, and appeared in over 50 commercials before reaching teenage years. Joey matriculated from a local high school in 2017, then concentrated on acting rather than college.
Her acting career began the moment her siblings managed to persuade her to become part of the entertainment industry, and become a model for “Life Cereal” – she soon started acting, appearing briefly in a couple of TV shows including “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2000, “Entourage” in 2004 and “Medium” in 2005. The first TV movie she appeared in was “Grace” in 2006, when she was still only six years old. In the scene she was shooting, Joey had to pretend she was drowning in an ocean, and she’s stated that this was the moment she fell in love with acting.
In 2008, Joey voiced Katie in the “Horton Hears a Who!” animated series, and the Beaver in the “Ice Age 3-D” movie, she appeared in “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour” TV series in 2010, and then landed one of the most important roles in her career when she appeared in the “Ramona and Beezus” adventure comedy movie. She once stated how this role changed her life, and how she will always appreciate the help which Liz Allen and Denise DeNovi provided for her.
In 2013, Joey voiced the China Girl in the “Oz the Great and Powerful” adventure family movie, then appeared in a couple of shows and TV movies before she landed the big role in “The Kissing Booth” movie in 2017, where she met her now ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi.
Largest success in the short years of her career
Joey’s favorite moment during her career was when she worked with very popular director Christopher Nolan – he was there when she had to shave her hair off for her role in “The Dark Knight Rises” movie in 2012. Even though she is still young, Joey has worked with famous directors including Sam Raimi, and Roland Emmerich as she appeared in his movie “White House Down” in 2013.
Reaching out to teenagers and philanthropy
Joey dedicates some of her free time to speak at schools and Boys and Girls Clubs about contributing to a better world, and explaining that they can all make a difference even though they’re still very young. She is also a philanthropist, as she helps several charity organizations – her grandmother and she often deliver food together through the Meals on Wheels organization. Joey makes bracelets to raise money for charity, and goes on walks during the Relay for Life projects organized by the American Cancer Society.
Joey served as the main spokesperson for Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) Day in 2010 – during the same year, she recorded the “Ramona Blue” song with her sister, with all the money which the song made going to the First Book charity organization.
