The Kissing Booth 2: Are Joey King & Taylor Perez Dating? Read To Know!: Last week, Netflix aired The Kissing Booth 2. After over a years’ wait, we saw lives of Elle, Lee and Noah get ahead. Moreover, we got to see Marco i-e Taylor Perez as Elle (Joey King’s) new love interest.
What’s more, is that sources say that Joey King and Taylor Perez are dating in real life. However, unfortunately, it’s not the case. Joey and Taylor are not dating. I know, that’s sad but, let’s get into the details of how this controversy stirred up.
Netflix viewers are well aware of onset romances on the sets of The Kissing Booth franchise. In 2018, Joey King started dating Jacob Elordi i-e Noah Flynn but, after a year into their relationship, the duo broke up.
Since then, both Joey and Jacob have been private about their personal lives. To that end, after TKB2 aired, Joey and Taylor have been posting about each other and enjoying their new film’s release.
As we all know, in the movie Elle and Marco get close, it seems Joey, and Taylor has gotten close in real life as well. However, they’re not dating.
Did Joey Get Tested To Meet Taylor?
Over the weekend on 25th July, Joey posted a photo on her Instagram stories of her cuddling with Taylor. She captioned:
“Got tested so that we could hug today.”
Moreover, she posted another photo of them captioning him as her ‘favourite weirdo.’
Provided that, on 30th July i-e Joey’s birthday, Taylor posted a heartfelt message on his Instagram post. He wrote:
“Happy Friggen Birthday @joeyking. Honestly, I could write about this woman all day. She’s the reason I joined TKB2 family, she welcomed me with open arms and love. She supported me, she pushed me, made me laugh (like pee in my pants laughing, and had to check my underwear), she inspired me to be a better actor, she shared her family with me, THE LIST GOES ON. Grateful for you forever.”
A Platonic Relationship
Naturally, right after Taylor posted, fans bawled their eyes out at Taylor and Joey. But, their relationship is just platonic. However, neither Joey nor Taylor have commented on this matter.
It’s no secret that many of us wanted Elle and Marco to end up together but, considering the basic plot, it didn’t happen. Several fans tweeted Taylor and Joey’s photo and said:
“Elle didn’t choose Marco, but Joey did.”
Furthermore, several other fans begged them to date but look like they’re just best friends!
