Madelaine Petsch Comments On “Catch-22” Of Cole Sprouse & Lili Reinhart Relationship
Riverdale stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart trolled the entire world last week when they clapped back at rumors they had broken up. The actors recently posed together for the cover of W Magazine, and in the midst of their breakup speculation, told fans that tabloids “know sh*t” about their relationship. Everybody was living for the actors’ response to the rumors — even their co-star Madelaine Petsch.
The Riverdale actress who plays Cheryl Blossom on The CW show told Access Hollywood that she was “blown away” by Lili and Cole’s Instagram posts. “I love them,” she said. “I don’t even know how they come up with this stuff. I was so in awe of that moment.”
“I knew they were shooting a cover of W, I did not know it was gonna go in that direction,” she added. “I mean, that shoot was probably one of the coolest shoots I’ve ever seen, and then with that caption, I [was] blown away. I loved it. We all got on the group text like, ‘Oh my god! That was so cool!'”
The Instagram posts Madelaine is referring to were posted by Cole and Lili last Thursday. They both shared their W Magazine cover but with different captions. “BREAKING: A reliable source has confirmed that none of you know sh*t,” Lili wrote under her post, while Cole captioned his: “UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult.”
In the same interview, Madelaine continued to discuss why she thinks she and her boyfriend Travis Mills receive less scrutiny from the public than Sprousehart. “Of course, there are more couples who are under the public eye than others,” she said. “I choose to keep my relationship pretty public, so I don’t think people really care, which I think is weird and a catch-22.”
“The more private and secretive you are, the more people are gonna want to know,” she continued.

We think Madelaine is definitely onto something there! She has been very open about her relationship with boyfriend Travis ever since she became a hot young star with the first season of Riverdale. The two often post cute photos together on social media and Travis has made appearances on Madelaine’s YouTube channel a bunch. This is super different from how Lili and Cole have handled their relationship, choosing to rarely speak about each other publicly, despite posting cute photos of each other from time to time.
Madelaine didn’t comment on the status of Sprousehart’s relationship, which is still unclear, but at least they’re both still participating in the Riverdale group chat!
