The Kissing Booth actor and the model sparked relationship speculation in the fall of 2020 after being spotted in New York City together. “Kaia and Jacob are newly seeing each other,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time, following two PDA-filled outings for the pair in the Big Apple.
Elordi, for his part, was previously linked to Euphoria costar Zendaya. Us confirmed in February 2020 that the two were dating after they sparked romance rumors in August 2019. They were last seen together in March 2020.
“It’s actually crazy how much they have in common,” the insider told Us in April 2021. “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 duo bonded over their shared interests, a second source told Us that they weren’t “rushing into anything serious like an engagement.” The pair were “enjoying being a couple” and just wanted “to experience life together,” the insider added.
Gerber broke her silence about her and Elordi’s dynamic during an interview with Vogue in May 2021, noting that they didn’t “want anything from each other.” She explained that they were in a “safe, steady relationship,” which led to her seeing the “possibilities of love.”
She added: “Lust is touching other people or wanting them, but love is really seeing someone.”
Us confirmed in November 2021 that the duo split after a year of dating.
