Sprousehart Fans Convinced Cole Sprouse & Lili Reinhart’s Breakup Is Fake News
Is there hope for true love after all? The internet was shocked yesterday when reports of a Sprousehart breakup began to spread. Us Weekly was the first outlet to report that Riverdale actors Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart had called it quits after a nearly two year relationship. People, E! News, and Elle were among the outlets who picked up the story, citing the fact that “multiple sources” had confirmed to Us Weekly and E! that a breakup did take place. So why are some Sprousehart fans so sure the story is fake news?

After a summer full of fan speculation that the couple was on the outs, Sprousehart shippers are now pointing to the couple’s flirty behavior at San Diego Comic-Con as a reason why the breakup reports are false. Although Us Weekly reported that the couple acted distantly towards each other during Entertainment Weekly‘s Saturday night party at Comic-Con, fans maintain that the couple acted super flirty in public all weekend, with some claiming that Cole put his hand on Lili’s thigh during the Riverdale cast’s autography signing on Sunday.

But in the interviews and in the panel they were flirty and complementing each other as well in the signing cole had put his hand on her thigh. And most of the comic con Cole was drunk. So stop dealing with their lives. Even if it is true or not. 2/2

TBH, Lili and Cole could have fooled us. The (former?) couple looked like they were definitely an item at Comic-Con, and they’ve been spotted out an about together in Vancouver, where Riverdale shoots. On Sunday, Lili even posted a story of her and Cole that playfully zoomed-in on Cole’s face. She deleted the story after breakup reports broke Monday afternoon.

So what’s really up with Sprousehart? It’s rare for this many reputable outlets to get news like a breakup so wrong, but we’ve had a couple of exes and we don’t look at them the way that Lili and Cole looked at each other this weekend. E! News reported that Cole and Lili were working on a reconciliation, so maybe that explains their flirty behavior. Please, someone, tell us we can believe in love again!
