After two years of dating, Riverdale stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have reportedly split.
According to E!News, the young couple split last month and have been keeping their distance from one another. The reason for their separation is still unknown. However, Season Four of the teen drama has commenced and it is said they are on “much better terms”.
The break-up news comes as a shock to fans of the show following their appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on the weekend. While they were all smiles on the Riverdale panel, the couple were noticeably distant from one another at the Entertainment Weekly party.
The pair play love interests Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, better known as “Bughead”, on Riverdale. Reinhart and Sprouse sparked rumours of an off-screen romance at a Comic-Con party in 2017. The rather private couple confirmed their romance eight months later while in Paris before making their red carpet debut at the Met Gala in May 2018.
It’s not all doom and gloom for fans of “Sprousehart”. With Betty and Jughead still going strong on Riverdale, the chance of a reconciliation in real-life for the former couple could be on the cards. An insider told E!News that “it’s unclear where they stand, but it seems like they could be heading back in the direction of getting together.”
