It appears fan favorite Riverdale couple, Bughead (AKA Betty Cooper and Jughead), are dating on the down-low off camera, too. People reports that Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse were spotted at Entertainment Weekly's Comic Con bash "canoodling, holding hands, and kissing," Saturday night. Reinhart was also sighted in Sprouse's maroon blazer.

Rumors that Reinhart and Sprouse were a thing off-screen started this spring, after Sprouse posted a photo of Reinhart on his 'gram in March. He'd post a second in April.

Neither Sprouse nor Reinhart has commented on the report yet. But Sprouse isn't likely to.

During an interview in April, Sprouse spoke about his relationship with the cast and what he made of the dating rumors around him and Reinhart. They're all tight, he said, and he has no plans to talk about his love life publicly:

We all get along so, so, so well, and I hang out with those guys when we are on hiatus. We all go to lunch; we all go to movies. It's one of those things where we all are really just great friends and there is a mutual respect there and the psychology is all grounded in the fact that we don't really care much about the fame aspect of it. Not much of us have something to prove so it means we have all grounded ourselves in just making a good program or trying to do the best with the material we can. And that has kept us humbled and really grounded and has made us all appreciative of one another. I think the shipping wars and communities have taken to realize relations as well when it comes to bromance or romance, as it's been called for KJ and I, and then Lili and I. I think people are getting invested into us and the characters and they really want to know the relationships of the people in real life.

I am one of those guys that's never ever going to talk about my private life with the public sphere. I mean people can talk about the Jughead as much as they want but when it comes to the personal relationships, I have spent much of my life separating work and play so I will continue to do so.
