Riverdale Star Madelaine Petsch & Travis Mills Seemingly Split
Another breakup has hit the Riverdale set! Just a few months after Camila Mendes and costar Charles Melton went to splitsville, Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl Blossom on the hit CW show, and her longtime boyfriend Travis Mills have seemingly split.
In the past, Mads has discussed how her costars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse‘s privateness when it comes to their relationship keeps people gossiping which is why she’s always been super open about her relationship with the punk rocker. But now, the fact that she and her maybe-ex-man did not post anything about one another on Valentine’s Day has fueled gossip that they’ve split after three years together. Even further, her Valentine’s Day post for Travis from last year has been deleted or archived from Instagram, and same goes for some other photos of the couple.
She told Access Hollywood in July 2019, “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.” Months before that, she told Glamour, “I’m a huge advocate of showing my relationship online because love does exist, and I think it’s so important for our generation to know that love will win.” Thus, not voicing her affection for V-Day does go against the actress’s former words about her approach to posting about her relationship on the web — especially since Travis has posted to Instagram every Valentine’s Day since they’ve been together and last year, Madelaine posted a YouTube video sending her then-boyfriend on a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt. Lucky for us, Travis still hasn’t deleted the sweet photos from his feed.
Madelaine and Travis actually met through Riverdale. Though Travis didn’t get the part of Jughead, he did audition and it was there that he met the redheaded queen bee. When he found out she snagged a part on the show, he slid into the DMs to congratulate her — and the rest is history.
Something must be in that Vancouver water causing these Riverdale couples to split. If so, we hope Lili and Cole are drinking 100% purified, imported h2o!
