Jacob Elordi’s portrayal of Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film Priscilla has rightfully earned him superstardom—and with that fame comes newfound interest in his personal life.
Elordi first emerged in the public spotlight as the leading man of Netflix’s The Kissing Booth film series, in which he starred opposite eventual girlfriend Joey King. He later joined the cast of HBO’s Euphoria, and reportedly engaged in a brief romance with costar Zendaya. Since then, the actor has been romantically linked to model Kaia Gerber and influencer Olivia Jade Giannulli.
Ahead, we break down everything to know about Elordi’s complete dating history.
Olivia Jade Giannulli (December 2021–present)
The actor first sparked dating rumors with the YouTuber in December 2021, shortly after news outlets reported on his split from Gerber. They reportedly broke up in August 2022, but, by the next month, they had reunited.
They have since embarked on holidays together to Italy and to Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, the latter being spent with Giannulli's parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli.
“They are 100 percent going strong,” a source told People in July 2023.
Kaia Gerber (September 2020—November 2021)
Elordi and Gerber were first publicly spotted together in September 2020. Since, the two had embarked on multiple PDA-filled dates in New York City, before officially going Instagram official by posting a photo of their couples costume for Halloween, during which they dressed (quite omnisciently) as Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
At the time, a source told People that Elordi had gained the approval of the model's famous parents, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber.
“Jacob is very sweet to Kaia. They are always very loving and cute together,” the insider told the outlet. “It's obvious that Cindy and Rande approve of Jacob too. They spend a lot of time together.”
The two eventually split by November 2021, with a Page Six insider describing the breakup as “amicable.”
Zendaya (August 2019—Early 2020)
Elordi's first major acting role after The Kissing Booth was as Nate Jacobs on Sam Levinson's Euphoria. During this period, dating rumors between him and costar Zendaya, who plays Rue, began to brew.
Public speculation over the couple's relationship started after paparazzi captured photos of the two enjoying a vacation to Greece together in 2019. Elordi denied the rumors while speaking to GQ Australia, describing Zendaya as “like my sister.” He went on to rave over Zendaya's work ethic and personality, adding, “Zendaya is an amazing creative, you know? She's super dope to work with. She's an incredible artist and a very caring person to all of us.”
Over the next year, paparazzi continued to snap photos of the two on PDA-filled dates in New York City. But, when the world went into lockdown during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the two reportedly quarantined in separate corners of the globe, with Elordi in his home country of Australia and Zendaya based in Los Angeles. The relationship ultimately fizzled out.
Still, they seem to remain on friendly terms. Elordi posted a sweet tribute to Zendaya following her first-ever Emmy win in September 2020, in which he wrote on Instagram, “Congratulations captain. Bravo.”
Joey King (April 2017—November 2018)
Elordi first rose to fame with his portrayal of Noah in Netflix's 2018 teen rom-com, The Kissing Booth. On set for the movie, he found real-life love with his onscreen love interest, Joey King, who played protagonist Elle. The two dated for a year, much to the delight of Kissing Booth fans, before quietly splitting in 2018 shortly after the first movie's release.
King, who is now married to Steven Piet, discussed the difficulty of going through a public breakup in a 2019 interview with Refinery 29. “All you can really do at that point is shut your phone off and crawl into your sister's bed and watch Friends with her, because when you're going through something and the world wants to go through it with you or [wants] to get every piece of detail from you about it, it's really difficult. Some of these things are just meant for you,” she said. “They can't understand; they can't grasp, that reality could be completely different and completely not the same as what you see. So I think that the reason why it was really difficult for them to let up on it is because they just have a fantasy idea of someone else's life, when it’s not like that at all.”
