Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart were our relationship goals both on and off the screen. Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper’s romance evolved over the three seasons of Riverdale into something balanced almost to perfection: with the right level of trust, support, care, friendship, and romance. Off the set, the two were couple goals with their relentless and unapologetic support for one another in whatever the two go on to achieve both individually and as a unit.
The two moved in together amidst the filming of Riverdale and were a couple both on the set as well as off it with co-stars and friends. For the current season, however, the two are commuting to work from different homes having officially moved out of one another’s abodes. A source close to the couple said that they’re “intentionally keeping their distance from the other.” Why they’re doing that, we don’t know, but it could be to take some time to discover or rediscover themselves or to simply take some self-care breathing time apart.
While the two kept some serious distance since the early summer when they broke up, with Riverdale’s next season filming, the two have had to meet and work together on set, putting them on much better speaking terms.
It comes as a massive shock that the two have split up and parted ways! We’re still in denial and taking a while to process this because they must be getting back together, no? That’s definitely the denial talking, but luckily, sources close to the couple indicate that the two are taking some time apart from one another and are on very good terms which means that a reunion may be in the books for the two sometime soon.
Mid last year, Cole Sprouse shared with Glamour magazine about Lili Reinhart that:
Lili was a tough egg to crack, she’s very shy at first, reserved, and I think it was about halfway into the first season she started letting people in truly. And she’s one of those people that consistently pushes me to be better at the arts that I’m pursuing, and that’s just the kind of person she is, she inspires excellence out of everybody she works with.”
If those aren’t the traits of a perfect partner, then we don’t know what are. It still remains a mystery as to why the two have decided to split.
