Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart’s Relationship Timeline From Meeting on ‘Riverdale’ to Now

A whirlwind romance. Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart first met on the set of Riverdale in 2016, where they began an on-again, off-again romance that would last for nearly three years. 

While the A-list pair played onscreen lovers, Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, they kept their real-life relationship mostly under wraps. However, following Lili and Cole’s second split in May 2020, the Hustlers actress opened up about her experience with heartbreak

“The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life,” Lili told Refinery29 in an interview published in August 2020. “My therapist [told] me, ‘Your body’s going through withdrawal from love. You’re used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you’re with.'”

In the past, Lili has used poetry as a means of expressing her feelings. In September 2020, her first collection of poems, Swimming Lessons, will be released. Moreover, the Ohio native revealed her follow-up collection is already complete.

“I felt the need to write that because I was scared — and I am scared — that people are going to try and create their own idea of what my love life looked or looks like,” Lili expressed. “I’m not saying, ‘My boyfriend f–ked another woman.’ I’m saying, ‘I felt betrayed.’”

Since her breakup from Cole, Lili has also spoken out about her sexuality. In June 2020, the Chemical Hearts star came out as bisexual. “Although I’ve never announced it publicly before, I am a proud bisexual woman,” Lili captioned her Instagram Story while promoting an LGBTQ+ protest for the Black Lives Matter movement. 

For Cole’s part, he hasn’t commented on calling it quits with Lili or his love life. Based on his social media posts, the former Disney Channel actor is focused on his photography, activism and spending time with twin brother Dylan Sprouse.
