Sad news for Riverdale fans and people who love love generally: Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have ended their relationship, Us Weekly is reporting. Multiple sources confirmed the split to the outlet, with one noting the two kept their distance from each other at Entertainment Weekly's Comic Con party this weekend. They were "rarely seen together," the outlet wrote, although they mingled with castmates.
The outlet added that Sprouse was overheard telling a friend at the event that he and Reinhart broke up.
Reinhart and Sprouse's romance was first reported after the two were seen showing PDA (specifically "canoodling, holding hands and kissing," a source said at the time) at EW's Comic Con party two years ago. The two occasionally posted photos of each other on their Instagrams and attended two Met Galas as each other's dates.
On Valentine's Day this year, the two shared affectionate tributes to each other. Sprouse posted his tribute to Reinhart first, captioning a photo he took of her,"Quite actually the only thing keeping me sane is @lilireinhart." He posted one other photo from the shoot, writing, "Another one just for good measure."
Reinhart's Valentine's Day tribute to Sprouse had a simple message: "You make me very happy. Happy Valentine’s Day, my love," she wrote to him.
Back when dating rumors first broke about them, Sprouse told ELLE.com in an April 2017 interview that he isn't someone who wants to talk much about his private relationships. "I am one of those guys that's never ever going to talk about my private life with the public sphere," he said. "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." His and Reinhart's Instagram tributes were their only intimate glimpse they gave the world of their private relationship.
