Archie’s personal life is just too difficult for him! Riverdale stars Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinart, Camila Mendes, and Vanessa Morgan have all had off-screen romances that have generated headlines over the years. On the CW drama Betty and Jughead, which began in January 2017, Reinhart and Sprouse won over fans as the lovebirds Betty and Jughead. When the two were originally linked in July 2017, fans were pleased to learn they were a real-life relationship.
The costars called it quits in 2020 after dating on and off for more than two years. In August 2020, Sprouse said through Instagram, “Lili and I originally separated in January of this year, agreeing to more permanently divorce in March.” “What a fantastic experience I had; I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to fall in love.” Moving forward, I wish her nothing but love and happiness. That’s all I’ll say about it; everything else you hear is irrelevant.”
During the aftermath of the divorce, the Chemical Hearts actress said that she felt like she was “dying.” That same month, she told Refinery29, “It was f—king awful, and there’s no other way out but through it.” “When it comes to heartbreak, sadness, and breakups, I’ve seen a lot of people try to fill the emptiness with sex, cocaine, food, and alcohol, but the void remains. I drove the back roads and dealt with my s—t alone. I have to confront my own suffering.”
Sprouse and Reinhart weren’t the only Riverdale actors that hung out outside of the show. From 2018 to 2019, Mendes dated Charles Melton. In 2019, the Sun Is Also a Star actor exclusively told Us Weekly, “I send letters to my partner.” “I mean, I don’t think that’s the most romantic thing I’ve done for her, but it’s the small basic things.” The cast also looks out for one other’s relationships. Madelaine Petsch revealed to Us exclusively in May 2019 that she and Mendes were “officially double daters.” Several of the show’s actors took the next step in their love relationships by establishing families. Morgan and Michael Kopech had baby River in January 2021, while KJ Apa and girlfriend Clara Berry welcomed a son, called Sasha in 2021.
The Hustlers star and Sprouse were originally linked in July 2017 when they were seen demonstrating PDA at Comic-Con. Reinhart told Harper’s Bazaar in July 2018 that she was “not OK sharing about my relationship,” and they kept their relationship primarily secret. In July 2019, multiple sources told Us that the couple had broken up. They were back on in September 2019, according to Reinhart. They “first separated in January of this year, opting to more permanently divorce in March,” the Disney Channel alum said in August 2020. In June 2020, the actress came out as a “proud bisexual lady” amid her on-again, off-again romance with Sprouse.
In a 2004 interview with Access Hollywood, Sprouse referred to actress and dancer Alyson Stoner as his “girlfriend.” Bree Morgan, Victoria Justice, Sophie Oda, Katelyn Pippy, Erin Barr, and Maiara Walsh have all been associated to him.
From July 2017 to March 2020, the former child star dated Reinhart on and off. In April 2020, Sprouse fueled relationship speculations with model Kaia Gerber, causing him to open out about his personal life.
In February 2021, the former Disney Channel actress fueled dating rumors with model Ari Fournier after the two were seen holding hands while out in Vancouver, Canada.
Cole posted an Instagram photo of Ari with the caption “Tippi and the burds” in July 2021, confirming the couple’s connection. The duo initially generated relationship rumors among fans in February 2021, when they were photographed eating lunch together in Vancouver, Canada.
