Are ‘Riverdale’ Stars KJ Apa and Camila Mendes Dating In Real-Life?

For the past three seasons, fans have been in love with the on-screen romance between a few Riverdale characters.

Aside from Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, better known as their ship name Bughead, fans can’t seem to get enough of Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa).

Though their on-screen love was one we still hope these two characters will fight for after calling it quits in Season 3, has their characters’ romance brewed up a special connection between these actors in real-life?

Camila Mendes is in a relationship with another Riverdale actor

While many of us would love to believe that Camila Mendes and KJ Apa are dating in real life, it turns out that is not the case.

Though these two actors have impeccable chemistry in front of the camera, their on-screen romance has never translated to real life.

Behind the scenes, Camila Mendes and KJ Apa are great friends and enjoy getting to work alongside each other.

Although we may never know if there were once romantic feeling between these two co-stars, it doesn’t really matter now seeing as though Camila Mendes has been in a serious relationship for a while now.

Since last year, Mendes and her fellow Riverdale co-star, Charles Melton, have been sparking romance rumors after being spotted on multiple occasions together.

The two started out as close friends and eventually blossomed into something more since Mendes confirmed their romantic relationship on her Instagram back in October 2018.

Since then, the couple has been photographed together walking red carpets, sharing photos of each other on their social media accounts, and even gush about each other during interviews.

If Camila Mendes’ Instagram is any indication of how smitten she is with her beau then we can easily tell that this relationship is bound to last a long time.

KJ Apa could possibly have a new leading lady in his life

While Camila Mendes is head over heels for her leading man, KJ Apa has been living the single life for a while now.

Although he has been pretty content not having someone to call his own, it looks like that could be changing a lot soon than we thought.

It has recently been revealed that the 22-year-old is starting to get pretty cozy with fellow actress, Britt Robertson, 29.

The two were spotted at Entertainment Weekly‘s Comic-Con 2019 party on July 20 getting pretty cozy amongst the crowd.

Sources learned that Apa and Robertson exchanged a kiss, had their arms around each other, and even held hands while walking together.

Though a romantic relationship between them has yet to be confirmed, KJ Apa and Britt Robertson have gotten to know each other pretty well these past few years.

The two actors first worked together in 2017 on the film A Dog’s Purpose and are set to star together as love interests in the new film I Still Believe, a sequel to the 2018 indie I Can Only Imagine

While KJ Apa has been pretty mum about his love life over the years, the Riverdale actor has been open about finding “the one”.

“I think I’m just waiting for the right time, right girl,” he told Cosmopolitan in 2017. “I’m pretty busy at the moment. I don’t know how much I have to offer to someone right now.”

“The thing is, I don’t think it matters whether you’re looking for a relationship or not,” Apa told Seventeen the following year. “It’s not for us to decide when we meet the love of our lives.”

Even though his career has gotten in the way of him finding love, it looks like KJ Apa’s luck hasn’t run out just yet.
