Jacob Elordi's new relationship with Kaia Gerber sparked all kinds of questions about his relationship with Zendaya, as fans didn't even know they had split when it emerged he was dating the supermodel.
Zendaya, 24, and Jacob Elordi, 23, were the young Hollywood couple Euphoria and The Kissing Booth fans were all rooting for, so when Jacob was pictured holding hands with model Kaia Gerber, 19, fans feared they'd split.
Not only was Jacob seen having dinner with Kaia on the night of Zendaya’s birthday, but two weeks prior he was seen on holiday with Zendaya in Greece.
To be fair to the Euphoria co-stars, they never confirmed they were in a relationship despite fuelling the rumours for a whole year, so his new love interest in Kaia might not be all that scandalous.
Here’s what we know about Jacob and Zendaya’s relationship, which was kept under wraps for months:
Did Jacob Elordi and Zendaya split up?
Jacob and Zendaya never confirmed they were an item, but sources told E! they began as “close friends” until things became “romantic” once they’d finished filming Euphoria.
Whether they were a couple or not, either way it looks like they eventually ended what they had after Jacob has been pictured looking close to Kaia in summer 2020.
Neither of the stars are yet to comment on the split.
The two were first linked in August 2019 after starring in Euphoria together and were seen on multiple occasions looking incredibly close.
In February 2020 were seen kissing in New York, which was pretty much confirmation they were a couple.
Have Jacob Elordi or Zendaya commented on their split?
Jacob, like Zendaya, isn't one to comment on his private life understandably, but he did seem to address the backlash he received over the first photos of him out with Kaia Gerber with a lengthy social media statement.
With a screenshot of his video call with his parents, Jacob said he often feels anxious about being a long distance from his mum and dad, and that they worry about him too.
He wrote to his 10.5 million Instagram followers to "try a little kindness", reminding them "I am a human being."
Is Jacob Elordi dating Kaia Gerber?
Jacob and Kaia were first spotted grabbing dinner together at Nobu in Malibu on Zendaya’s birthday, with a source telling E! at the time they were keeping things casual.
But things have hotted up since then as they went on to spend Halloween together, dressing as Elvis and and Priscilla Presley, and it's believed Jacob is thoroughly enjoying Kaia's Malibu lifestyle.
Previously, Kaia dated Ariana Grande’s ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.
