Taylor Zakhar Perez Weighs In On Constant Joey King Dating Rumors: 'She's Dope'

Taylor Zakhar Perez is dishing on the dating rumors between him and Joey King.

During a new interview, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the constant rumors surrounding his relationship with his The Kissing Booth 2 co-star.

“We were quarantine buddies so I would see her all the time because we lived five minutes away from each other. We know what our relationship is, we love each other dearly,” he said on the Chicks In The Office podcast. “It’s been interesting how everyone has been trying to make something out of it but it’s fine. I mean, hey, I would love to be dating Joey King, she’s dope.”

“I’m a huge fan of dating your friend, someone that you know and you trust because that’s where it all starts right. For me, non-sexual intimacy is so much more important to me at first. I’m all about the sensitive stuff,” he added about relationships.

“I’m all about the ROI, what’s the return on investment. If I’m investing this much time into someone I’m gonna be dating, I’m gonna make sure this is more than a three-month thing,” Taylor continued. “I’m more into long-term goal wise when it comes to work and relationships and everything. Life’s short and you want to make sure you are spending it with the best people. I’m so much more turned on by emotional intimacy than sexual intimacy at first. I love that.”

Sorry The Kissing Booth fans – it’s just a rumor!

Taylor Zakhar Perez just confirmed in an interview that he is in fact NOT dating his The Kissing Booth 2 co-star Joey King.

“I know, we went away this weekend for some friends’ birthdays, and her birthday, and everyone kinda freaked about it. I will say that we are not dating,” Taylor told Access.

“We just became really close during filming, but then we became even closer after filming because we live really close to each other,” he added. “I think we’re like a three or four minute drive from each other. We’re kind of each other’s accountability partners during quarantine. So we got to hang out, make sure that we weren’t seeing anybody outside of the circle of people that we trusted.”

Taylor and Joey went away last weekend, like he said, and you can see all of their photos HERE and HERE!
