Break Up Speculation
Joey and her beau Jacob who were the youngest ”it” couple in Hollywood seem to have parted ways. Or, at least the fans think so!
Well, the couple who were so open about their romance on Instagram stopped posting about their passion altogether. On 14th November Jacob deactivated his Instagram handle, and just two days after the incident Joey posted a cryptic tweet about holding on to her dog.
Although Jacob did return around New Year 2019 to the famous photo sharing site, there was no sign of his girlfriend in his posts. Add to that; the pair weren't seen together for a while. The handsome hunk wasn’t present when Joey won Favorite Movie Actress at 2019 Kids' Choice Awards.
Besides, he chose to go to HBO’s Golden Globes 2019 with his Euphoria co-star, Hunter Schafer.
In 2019, the worst speculation of the couple's fans turned out to be true. It turns out Joey and Jacob had indeed parted ways from each other in late 2018.
In August that year, the Kissing Booth actress was spotted spending time with her newfound love, Steven Piet. And, her new boyfriend turned out to be the executive producer of her Hulu's show, The Act.
The new love birds attended the screening of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets in Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Moreover, the two were joined by Joey's two sisters: Hunter & Kelli King, and their partners.
The two probably met through the filming process of The Act, but it's not yet known who approached whom first.
However, it seems, Joey's ex-bf Jacob Elordi isn't by himself after the breakup. He too is having his share of good times. Joey's former partner was spotted in Greece with his Euphorias co-star Zendaya Coleman spending vacation together.
