Riverdale Stars Cole Sprouse & Lili Reinhart’s Breakup Confirmed
I’m sorry but we’ve been saying this for weeks. After two years of dating while concurrently starring on a TV show together, Riverdale costars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have *officially* split, according to Us Weekly sources. We’ll admit that we had our doubts that they’d split during the season three to season four Riverdale hiatus, especially because Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a photo where they looked awfully snuggly on-set this season. Then there’s this Comic Con video compilation:
But it looks like Lili and Cole are really just chill exes, since Us reports that Cole was “overheard telling a pal at [Comic Con] that he and Reinhart … broke up,” plus multiple sources backing up that eavesdropping. Looks like this whole thing is pretty fresh and the two haven’t completely figured out to be friends, exes, and costars on one of the hottest shows on TV.
As previously mentioned, rumors of Sprouehart’s split first started because the two spent very little time together while on break from filming Riverdale. Cole did go to New Jersey to see Lili, but then they both spent a few days together in L.A. notably without each other. Many have blamed Cole and Lili’s emotional distance on Cole’s good friend King Princess, some even going as far to say that Cole and KP were hooking up. But since King Princess is a lesbian, we’re gonna call that gossip false.
We can’t imagine how sucky this whole thing is as the two come to terms with the end of their relationship while also having to play it cool and see each other on set every day. I guess that’s a perk of being an actor… you know how to act. They can hit up Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev for tips on having to play a couple when you’re no longer one IRL. Hopefully Lili doesn’t pull a Nina and quit the show.
