Looks like there’s trouble in paradise for one of Hollywood’s popular IT couples. If rumors are to be believed, Riverdale co-stars and real-life beaus Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have allegedly broken up. Yep, no more real-life version of Jughead and Betty. HOW SAD IS THIS?!
According to US Weekly, the two dated for about two years till reports of them barely being seen together started floating around. In the recent Comic-Con part that was held in San Diego a few days ago, the couple was reported not spending any time with each other. Plus, it was also reported that Sprouse opened up to a friend about the split earlier, saying that he and Reinhart are no longer together. Ouch.
It’s a given that the two have always been pretty tight-lipped about their relationship. So it comes off as no surprise if the news about the split isn’t being announced officially. In any case, the couple duly deserves their privacy to be respected. Even back when the rumor mill started churning up gossip about them dating, Sprouse was quick to shut them all down with a curt response.
“I just never talk about it because it’s not anyone’s right to know.”
Completely understandable, but the fans can’t really be blamed if they want to keep up with what their favorite couple is up to. However, what hurts, even more, is the fact that there will be a strained relationship for the onscreen couple as well in the upcoming seasons.
At the recent Comic-Con, Sprouse talked about the brewing tensions between Betty and Jughead in the show and revealed how they might go through a rough patch.
“I think it might be a little bit tense. They might fall, turn away from each other, only to come back together way stronger. I think they’re gonna be really good.”
Well, there’s some hope at least. But what do you think of Sprouse and Reinhart’s breakup? Do you think they will get back together or will we have to bid farewell to them for good? Let us know in the comments.
