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.

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.

1I love Jessica Chastain. I love her; she's amazing, and she's such a good actress, and she's been nominated for Oscars, and she's just a big role model to me. I love her.
2It's very different working with all adults. I have a swear jar so that, if they have a potty mouth, I make them pay. That's what it's like being on set with adults.
3My older sisters were in acting, and of course, I wanted to be just like them!
4You have to keep going and pursue your dreams.
5I'm usually always a big fan of the people that I'm working with, because I get to work with big people.
6Both my sisters and I were in Stage Door plays, and we did that together, just in, like, little small plays together. And we did that, and it was really fun, and we kinda did commercials, and it kinda took off from there. It was great; it's what I love.
7You have to show the character is confused or scared or happy through your voice instead of with your face and body.
8I love Disneyland because the teacups are so awesome. But California Adventure is the best.
9I love my house. I love my family. I love my animals.
10I like normal life, but I will go crazy if I'm not working.
11I am such a big fan of Batman.
12Don't get discouraged from all the rejection.
13I'm part Jewish and part Christian, but I'm mostly Jewish...
