E! Confirms Camila Mendes & Charles Melton Split A ‘Few Months’ Ago
Well, well, well… looks like Riverdale super-sleuths know a little something about celebrity breakups. Nearly a month after we reported fan speculation that Camila Mendes and Charles Melton had gone to Splitsville, E! reports the two have been “taking a break” for a few months.
“Cami and Charles have been separated for a few months now. They are taking a break from their relationship,” an insider told the website. “Their relationship escalated very quickly and they are taking time now to focus on their work and themselves.”
The source continued that there was no drama. “Nothing in particular happened, they just both felt busy and overwhelmed and it was a lot of pressure on them… They are still in touch and both understand they need to be cordial while on set and throughout press for the show … They have been filming together while being split and things have been normal.”
This news comes just a few months after magazines had mistakenly reported that Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse had broken up over the summer. Sprousehart eventually slammed the rumors — which means we’ll be taking fan speculation and “insider” reports with a grain of salt until Cami or Charles speak out about the split / “break” rumors themselves.
The pair started dating a little over a year ago shortly after Camila’s split with her ex Victor Houston. In fact, Charles was *kind of* the person that confirmed Camila was not with Victor anymore.
Cami and Charles hadn’t been spotted together on a date since early October, which is likely around the time when the two decided that their relationship wasn’t working out. The two play Veronica Lodge and Reggie Mantle on Riverdale, characters who had a brief fling around the same time their actor-counterparts were dating. I guess Charles and Camila splitting could mean that there won’t be trouble insight for Varchie in the near future?
