‘Riverdale’: The Real Reason Camila Mendes and Charles Melton Broke Up

Has another one bitten the dust? It seems like no relationships can stand the test of time anymore. Especially not in the world of celebrities. Every time we fall in love with a new celeb couple, they fall out of love before we can even properly give them a couple name.

The kids of CW’s Riverdale were changing that narrative though. Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart were the first to get together and they were going strong until this summer when breakup rumors started running rampant.

Now, everyone has been looking to Camila Mendes and Charles Melton to hold up the Riverdale relationship wagon. But it looks like they are already on the outs.

Camila Mendes and Charles Melton breakup

Though news of the breakup just became public, the couple has apparently been separated for a while.

“Cami and Charles have been separated for a few months now,” the source told E! News “They are taking a break from their relationship. Their relationship escalated very quickly and they are taking time now to focus on their work and themselves.”

The two have still been able to work together, though.

“They are still in touch and both understand they need to be cordial while on set and throughout press for the show,” the source continued. “They have been filming together while being split and things have been normal. Everyone is very close on the show and are all very good friends. They can’t ignore each other so they just remain cordial and try and focus on filming. They are still filming Riverdale season 4, but will have a break for the holidays for a few weeks.”

Why did Camila Mendes and Charles Melton break up?

Working together can be hard on any relationship. But apparently, there was no drama involved in the breakup at all. The distance and stress of it all just got to be too much.

“They both have movie projects separately, and it’s been a lot on both their plates,” the source continued. “Nothing in particular happened, they just both felt busy and overwhelmed and it was a lot of pressure on them.”

Are Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse still together?

After two years of dating, reports started circulating that Riverdale’s original sweethearts had broken up this summer.

The stories got so elaborate that Reinhart addressed them on Twitter.

“Don’t believe everything you read on the internet, kids,” she tweeted. “And news sources should try a little harder to be less vile. ‘Reliable sources’ can kiss my a–.”

So, at least we still have one Riverdale couple to swoon over.
