Riverdale’s Camila Mendes & Charles Melton Spark Dating Rumors After They’re Spotted Smooching
Watch out Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart! There might be a new IRL Riverdale couple for us to ship. There have been rumors that Camila Mendes and Charles Melton are more than just friends for weeks, and now we’re even more convinced than ever. E! News reports that the co-stars are potentially dating, with an eyewitness saying they saw them kissing at a movie theater!
The rumored couple was spotted with their castmates Lili and Casey Cott at the movies in Vancouver, Canada (where the cast is currently filming season three) a few days ago, where a fellow movie-goer saw them lean in for a smooch. “Camila sat next to Charles and leaned on his shoulder,” a source told the website. “As the lights were dimming, my friend saw them kiss!”
If this is true, WE ARE SO HERE FOR IT! But in case you need more proof, both Camila and Charles shared a video of the exact same fireplace on Instagram on Tuesday night, September 18. Though they didn’t tag each other in the post, it’s clear they were together. Also, fireplaces = romance.
We also cannot forget to mention what first sparked the romance rumors between them. Fans quickly noticed that the two were looking quite cozy in a photo Camila posted on IG on Labor Day. In the pic, you can see Camila and Charles snuggling up to one another… and sharing the same towel. At the time, we thought were making something out of nothing (especially because we all know how close the Riverdale cast is), but the below pic may have been the start of it all!
Before we get too excited, #Varchie fans pointed out that Camila once said that she doesn’t like dating actors. “Actors are really emotionally complicated. You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not,” she told Nylon in July. “I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”
It turns out she did date a non-actor named Victor Houston earlier this summer, but the relationship was short-lived with the couple reportedly calling it quits in late July or early August. But guess who confirmed the breakup? None other than Charles himself! After a fan left the comment, “[She] and victor broke up it’s in [an article] and everything they broke up” on Camila’s Labor Day photo, Charles LIKED IT! Now, why would he like that comment? It’s totally suspicious and makes us think he wanted to make it clear that Camila definitely wasn’t in a relationship with Victor anymore.
Maybe Camila has had a change of heart when it comes to not dating actors. After all, Charles is so sweet and they genuinely look like they always have a good time together. Also, if this romance is real, Camila will no longer be the third wheel in Cole and Lili’s relationship! It’s a win-win for everyone, including us who can dream about their double dates.
