Back in July of 2019, it was rumored that Reinhart and Sprouse had pulled the plug on their relationship.

“Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a ‘breakup’,” the 23-year-old wrote. “They are about the depression I’ve felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait. I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression,” she shared.
