Jacob Elordi and Kaia Gerber kept their relationship under wraps after they first stepped out together in September 2020.
After being spotted together in New York City in the fall of 2020, the Kissing Booth actor and the model sparked relationship rumours. “Kaia and Jacob are newly seeing each other,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time, following the couple’s two PDA-filled outings in New York.
Their rumoured romance comes eight months after Gerber ended her relationship with Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live. After a three-month relationship, the couple split in January 2020.
Elordi, on the other hand, had previously been linked to Euphoria co-star Zendaya. After sparking romance rumours in August 2019, Us confirmed in February 2020 that the two were dating. In March 2020, they were last seen together.
Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi made their relationship public in November 2020, when they dressed up as Priscilla Presley and her late husband, Elvis Presley, for Halloween.
In April 2021, an insider told Us, “It’s actually crazy how much they have in common. It was like the universe brought them together! They’re both models, modeled for Calvin Klein — very into fashion, of course. They love going shopping together and even working out together. They’re truly some of the kindest people you will meet.”
While the pair bonded over common hobbies, a second insider told Us that they weren’t “rushing into anything serious like an engagement.” According to the source, the couple was “enjoying being a couple” and simply wanted to “experience life together.”
During an interview with Vogue in May 2021, Gerber broke her silence on her and Elordi’s relationship, saying they didn’t “want anything from each other.” She added that they were in a “safe, steady relationship,” which allowed her to understand “possibilities of love.”
“Lust is touching other people or wanting them, but love is really seeing someone,” she said.
After more than a year of dating, Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi have broken up, according to reports.
A source tells Just Jared, “It was a completely amicable split. They’re just going their separate ways now.”
Kaia deleted some photos of Jacob from her Instagram, and they were noticeably absent this Halloween, indicating trouble in paradise.
Jacob Elordi and Kaia Gerber made their red carpet debut as a couple in September, just weeks before their split, at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ opening gala.
Kaia’s family and friends were even on board with their relationship. “[They] adore Jacob and think he’s a great match for Kaia,” a source told In Touch. “Her friends have also taken a liking to him and think he’s such a heartthrob,” the source added.
In the end, the couple’s relationship didn’t work out. According to In Touch, Kaia was the one who started the breakup. The source revealed that “their schedules conflicted,” and “they weren’t spending much time together.” The source continued, “It seemed like they were going backward instead of forward and that’s why it wasn’t working.”
Despite the fact that their year-long relationship ended, Jacob and Kaia have no bad blood. “It has been a long time coming,” added the source. “From what I hear there are no hard feelings and they’re still on speaking terms.”
