‘Riverdale’ Fans React to Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse’s Split
By now we're sure you've heard that Riverdale stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have broken up IRL leaving Bughead fans everywhere heartbroken by the devastating news.
As previously reported, multiple sources told Us Weekly the couple, who play Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, have split after nearly two years of dating. According to the outlet, the co-stars kept their distance from each other and were "rarely seen together" during a Comic-Con party over the weekend, with one insider noting the former Disney Channel star was even overheard telling a friend that he and the actress broke up.
Sources also told E! News that Reinhart and Sprouse split up "earlier this summer" but they're on "much better terms" now that the series is back in production.
Despite the fact that neither of them has confirmed the split, fans shared their reaction over the news via Twitter:
Though many wonder what this will mean for their beloved characters' relationship on the show, some of them pointed out that Reinhart's tweet about not giving "your f--ks away" could have been about Sprouse all along.
"One must choose very wisely when considering how many f--ks to give. Don’t give your f--ks away so easily. Don’t let someone who is not worthy of any f--ks, take your f--ks away from you. Some things/people are just not worth it. amen," she wrote on July 17.
Meanwhile, there are also people comparing Reinhart and Sprouse's break up to another famous couple who broke up while filming a hit TV show. Who can forget the heartbreak fans felt when The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder called it quits even though their characters were madly in love?
