The Kissing Booth 2's Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez have seen all your tweets and speculation about whether or not they're in a relationship, and now, Taylor has officially addressed the dating rumours.

Readers, we have both good news and bad news. The bad news? Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez are not dating. The good news? That means he's still single so you've still got time to slide into his DMs.
In a new interview ET Online, Taylor set the record straight, and even divulged a little further on the adorable bond that he and Joey formed while working together on the movie.
"We just kind of hit it off. When we were in South Africa, we had dinner together," he said of how their friendship started. "I cooked for her, she cooked for me. We just became kind of like the best of friends."
He continued: "I’m sure it was odd for her to go back into a production with someone that she dated, and so me being this new cast mate and Joel [Courtney] being there and Meganne [Young], we kind of just all meshed really well together."

Happy Friggen Birthday @joeyking Honestly I could write about this woman all day. She is the reason I joined the KB2 family, she welcomed me with open arms and love, she supported me, she pushed me, she made me laugh (like pee my pants laughter and had to check my underwear), she inspired me to be a bettter actor, she shared her family with me, THE LIST GOES ON. Grateful for you forever. #tbt
The two continued hanging out together after filming because they live near each other in LA. And once quarantine hit, he explained that they both needed "someone to trust", so they grew even closer.
He finished by saying: "I love her. I love her dearly. I’d do anything for her. We’re not dating. I’ll end it with that."
So there you have it. Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez are not dating but they have had a good laugh over how much the internet is rooting for them.
Fans are just gonna have to wait until The Kissing Booth 3 to get their Elle and Marco jush.
