Riverdale costars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have reportedly split after nearly two years of dating, according to Us Weekly.
The outlet reports that the two kept their distance from each other at the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con party in San Diego on Saturday.
Sprouse and Reinhart were rarely seen together as they mingled with different castmates from their hit CW show. Us claims that Sprouse was overheard telling a friend that he and Reinhart had broken up.
However, Sprouse and Reinhart, who play onscreen couple Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper on the popular series, were seated next to each other during the show’s panel on Sunday.
Reinhart later took to Instagram to joke about the situation. “Please don’t put me between these two ever again,” she captioned a photo of her, Sprouse and Apa.
Sprouse and Reinhart kept their relationship private, despite living in the public eye. The pair sparked rumors that they were together in May 2017, when Sprouse shared a dreamy photo he took of Reinhart lounging in a flower field on Instagram. However, they refused to comment on the speculation until 2018.
“Lili and I are constantly talked about in the public eye, and for me I think that it is being deeply informed by the love of the characters and wanting to see us together,” Sprouse told PEOPLE at the time. “I think that in many ways it’s offensive and an invasion of privacy, but it’s also a badge of honor because it means you’re creating a chemistry onscreen that is so understandable that people want to see it in real life, which is flattering from a professional perspective.”
“Because whether you dismiss those rumors or whether you encourage those rumors, it’s giving people who are in my opinion are a bit entitled to your personal life more power, and you have to have spaces for reverence in the industry,” he explained. “So I just never talk about it because it’s not anyone’s right to know. People can speculate all they want, people speculate about me with every member of the cast practically, but it’s really no one’s right to know. It’s also sexy, these parts of the relationships that are just yours.”
