Jo Koy's ex-wife Angie King is a vocalist who began dating him when he started his career as a comedian. They married quite soon after meeting but went their separate ways in 2013.

King is a Filipino American singer-songwriter born in the Philippines but moved to America with her parents as a child. She goes by the stage name Nura Luca and inherits her talents from her dad. Her official website states:

"Her late beloved father was a professional opera singer who heavily influenced her eclectic sound. Reminiscent of her childhood and in the church choir, her dark and dreamy melodies convey a time of romance, mystery, and illusion to interpret the blank narrative. It's an emotion. It's seen as an art. It's transcendent."

In 2020, she released her album "Pipe Dreams," which was described as nostalgic. She also released a collaborative new single in the same year called "Mediatrix!"


King's first single was released in 2019, which, she stated on her Instagram account, was about love and self-awareness. She penned it as a reminder that people can take one's affections for granted if they are not wise.

Angie King was in a relationship with Koy for several years before they divorced in 2013. They have a son, Joseph Herbert Jr., who turned 19 this year. On his birthday, Herbert Jr.'s mother shared a sweet picture of him as a child on Instagram, with a caption that read:

"Happy 19th birthday, LJ! Being your Mom is my greatest accomplishment in life. I love you beyond words, sweetheart, and it has been the best gift seeing you grow into the wonderful young man that you are. Remember the days when you were all about trains? 😻"

After King and Koy divorced, they remained on good terms. Herbert Jr. seems to enjoy the humorous dynamic his parents have post-marriage, an adorable relationship that is apparent on social media.


King stars in her ex-spouse's comedy sketches, and in March 2020, the two poked fun at the current state of the world via a satirical "soap opera." They joked about quarantining and everyone's obsession with toilet paper. Sharing the video on her page, King revealed:

"Guys, I’m in another episode of the best Filipino soap opera 'Bahay Ko Ito.' This is EP 4! Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe rn.🙏💓🌙"

The comedic relief was welcomed during the heaviness of the pandemic, and fans of the clip were in stitches, with laughing emojis filling the comment section.


King showed respect and affection for her ex-husband when she shared a photo of him and their son when he was younger. She wished him a happy 50th birthday and wrote:

"Today is the big 5•0 for the most genuine, giving, hard-working, and funniest guy I know🎉my best friend and baby daddy lol @jokoy Cheers to another year of success, happiness, good times, and great things ahead! Mahal Kita! 42nd vs. 48th/49th birthday ➪[sic]."

Fans commented on what a cute photo it was, and they wished Koy a happy birthday. King has not been in another romantic relationship since 2013.



While King has remained single, Koy began dating Handler, his friend since the early 2000s. The two became an item in 2021 but broke up nearly a year afterward, with Handler saying that her now ex-boyfriend helped her trust men again.

Their relationship drew a lot of attention, and they were photographed together before publicly announcing their relationship and being interviewed about it. Just like with his ex-wife, Koy remains on friendly terms with Handler.


Koy had an immediate crush on Handler when they first met, and Handler says she may have felt the same too but saw him as more of a brother. However, she eventually realized that her feelings were deeper than that.

When they were still together, Handler opened up about the relationship, stating that it was the first time she felt truly safe within a relationship. The television host also noted that it felt easy being with him.



King is single and thriving and continues to make a name for herself as a singer. She remains good friends with her husband and has a healthy and loving relationship with her son.

In March of this year, she took to Instagram to announce the debut of her single, "Love Spell. She also shared a small snippet of her "Mediatrix!" single on the same platform. King also promoted her former spouse and shared a trailer of the movie "Easter Sunday" that stars Koy.
