Those Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse Breakup Rumors, Explained
It hasn’t even been a full year since Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse had to dispel breakup rumors at the end of last summer and now, the COVID-19 social distancing has fans thinking there might be trouble in paradise (again?).
Riverdale season four filming was cut short when a crewmember was confirmed to have had contact with someone who tested positive for the new Coronavirus, so some fled Vancouver (where Riverdale films) for their homes and some stayed put. At first, it appeared that Lili and Cole (better known as #Sprousehart) would be self-quarantining together. But then, Lili and costar Madelaine Petsch were posting together and Cole was seen out and about in L.A. with Tommy Dorfman and Kaia Gerber.
Naturally, fans find it a little suspicious that a couple wouldn’t choose to self-isolate together, especially since theoretically, they were together on the Riverdale set before production shut down. Additionally, considering Mads and her boyfriend Travis Mills recently split, some speculate that the two are spending their breakups together. Personally, I don’t think that the latter theory holds much — but I’ll let you decide for yourself.
To make matters even more confusing, in a recent YouTube video, Madelaine said that she “changed locations” and was not social distancing with Lili anymore. Instead, she’s with Joey Graceffa and his BF Daniel Preda for self-isolation. Around the same time, Cole was tagged in posts during a “Zoom birthday party” with Katherine McNamara and Zelda Williams for Nic Mercado‘s big day — Lilli was nowhere to be found.
However, there is some good news. Lili is still commenting on Cole’s friends’ Instagrams. Which may not seem like much but, if you just broke up with someone, would you be sliding into the comments on their BFFs’ social media posts? Didn’t think so. Plus, people feel pretty certain they can see Cole’s pants in the corner of Lili’s recent IG Story.
