It’s over for Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart.
The co-stars of Riverdale are shared after two years of dating.
“Lili and Cole broke up earlier this summer”, a source told E! News. “The two don’t live together this season.”
The insider said the two “have deliberately kept their distance”; But now that Riverdale is back in production, they are back to film together and are in ‘much better conditions’.
Several outlets have also confirmed the breakup.
The news came as a shock to their fans. After all, the Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones stars were all smiling in the Comic-Con 2019 panel of the show in San Diego a few days earlier.
But is there hope for reconciliation?
“At the moment it is unclear where things are, but it looks like they could go back in the direction of coming together,” the insider added.
It was not exactly love at first sight for the 22-year-old actress and the 26-year-old actor.
“Lili was a hard-to-crack egg, she was very shy at first, reserved, and I think it was halfway through the first season that she really started telling people,” Sprouse told Glamor in September 2018. “And she is one of those people who consistently pushes me to become better at the art I pursue, and that is exactly the kind of person she is, inspiring the excellence of everyone she works with.”
Reinhart also admitted that she initially found his voice “annoying.”
The CW stars then triggered romantic rumors in July 2017 after being spotted at the PDA at Comic-Con 2017. While the two continued to speculate on romantic outings, they still played reluctantly about their relationship status. They even avoided the question of a fan about their rumor romance during a PaleyFest panel in 2018. Only in the 2018 Metala did the two make their first red carpet as a couple.
“It’s not something we’re hiding, or it’s not something we’re showing,” Sprouse told GQ in March 2019. “It’s just something that exists.”
But as time went on, the two became much more comfortable in sharing aspects of their relationship with the public. From sending each other flirty messages on social media to talking about the other in interviews, the two were not afraid to share their love story with the world.
Sprouse recently unveiled his greatest romantic gesture for the Hustlers actress.
“I really like the date of the road trip, I took my girlfriend [Lili] to a date when we drove deep into Canada to this location, and I surprised her with a big hot air balloon adventure, which was pretty fun,” he told Glamor . “I love to travel, I love car journeys, those great experiences always provide the best memories – and the best romances.”
