Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse are over after two years of dating

The youthful cast members of Riverdale are really becoming bigger names, aren’t they? K.J. Apa has a bright future in front of him, I’m sure. I see news about Camila Mendes and Cole Sprouse all the time. But I think Lili Reinhart may be the big breakout star of the show. She’s gotten tons of attention for being fashionable and she scored a supporting role in Hustlers, alongside Jennifer Lopez. Plus, she looks so much like Brittany Murphy, it actually kind of creeps me out and makes me sad. Even though I gossip for a living, I really didn’t know that Lili and her costar Cole Sprouse had been dating for the past two years. That too makes sense – she’s only 22, Riverdale was her first big-time job, and it makes sense for her to date a coworker. Looks like it ended though:

Bughead is broken up in real life. Riverdale stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have reportedly split, according to Us Weekly and E! News. Reps for both did not immediately return PEOPLE’s requests for comment. The exes kept their distance from each other at Entertainment Weekly‘s Comic-Con party in San Diego on Saturday. Reinhart stuck close by costars Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch.

Despite the split, Sprouse, 26, and Reinhart, 22, were seated next to each other during the show’s panel on Sunday, which she later joked about on Instagram. “Please don’t put me between these two ever again,” she captioned a photo of her, Sprouse and Apa on Instagram.

The actors — who play love interests Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones on the CW’s soapy twist on the Archie comics — first sparked romance rumors in May 2017, when Sprouse shared a dreamy photo he took of Reinhart lounging in a flower field on Instagram.

Apparently, they really didn’t have a problem sitting with each other on stage, which is a good sign that things didn’t end TOO badly. But she must have been like “I don’t even want to see his face or hang out with him right now.” I wonder if Lili will be the first one to leave Riverdale for greener pastures?

    I’m waiting for actual confirmation on this one. They’re young so it’s not unbelievable that they might’ve split, but I watched a couple Riverdale interviews at Comic Con (I’m a fan, I know, shameless) and they seemed 100% fine. Maybe they were just acting though, lol!

    Lili is a very talented actress, and is definitely the best in the cast. I hope she has a long career ahead of her.

    • Steph says:

      Agreed. Her mom already said this wasn’t true so until I hear it from reps, US Weekly is not a reputable source.

      They took pics on Instagram over the weekend where they stood next to each and we’re touching each other, so couldn’t be that bad a breakup of true.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Lili is unbelievably talented. Her facial expressions alone are the reason I stuck with Riverdale as long as I did. I wish the storylines were better, but she can do a lot with a little.

      KJ Apa is a terrible actor IMO. Not sure why he is so hyped.

  2. Kris says:

    I’ve never gotten the Brittany Murphy comparison! I think they maybe have a passing resemblance but that’s it. Just me?

    • Jb says:

      I don’t see it at all either…

    • Originaltessa says:

      Lili is petite, but Brittany was a waif. Their physical stature is so different, I can’t see the comparisons. Passing facial resemblance, maybe…

    • Abby says:

      I had to Google more photos of Lili. I guess with certain hairstyles and from certain angles I can see the resemblance. But to me Brittany had a much more striking appearance.

      • Kris says:

        Yes! This is why I really don’t understand. Brittany Murphy had something that LIli does not quite have yet.

    • sommolierlady says:

      Looks nothing like Brittany and her and her husband deaths will always be suspicious to me.

  3. GreenBunny says:

    I don’t see Brittany Murphy either. If anything, she makes me think of Brittany Snow.

  4. Faithmobile says:

    I agree with the Britney Murphy resemblance, it throws me when I see her.

  5. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    As long as she doesn’t pull a Mischa Barton and leave a good thing too soon. I’ll be interested to see her performance in Hustlers.

    • Dani says:

      Worst career move for Mischa ever. Not like everyone else flourished and became big screen names but they all ventured off in to their own thing and are doing okay compared to. I’m not even sure what relevance she has that she got cast for The Hills.

  6. Cousin Chrissy says:

    I follow them both on Instagram and there is nothing hinting anything about a breakup. There is a picture floating around from her beside him at comic con and she is glancing at Cole, looking enamored. They also still follow each other so I just have doubts this is true. Maybe it’s just good gossip for the next season starting soon. A lot of fans say if “Bughead” break up they’re done with the show so there’s no telling what’s going on in the background. The third season was definitely not as good and the show is started to get silly even so my thoughts say this “breakup” is a media ploy. Until they confirm it themselves, it’s just a rumor.

  7. JoJo says:

    I can see the Brittany Murphy resemblance, although I never noticed it until now. I really liked them together. If you read interviews with them, it seems like Lili is the more conservative, introverted, private one – Cole has talked about how hard it was hard for the cast to kind of break through and connect with her in the beginning of the show. They seemed like a more interesting, substantive couple than most their age … but who really knows. I wouldn’t bet against them getting back together, if in fact they’ve even broken up.

  8. Vanessa says:

    I hope the rumors are not true their adorable together I don’t think she looks like Britney Murphy at all . To me she look like she could be January jones sister or daughter

  9. Starkiller says:

    Never heard of either of them, or the show they’re on. It appears to be based on archie comics?? Hollywood is really scraping the barrel, huh?
