Is it normal to mourn the demise of a celebrity couple? Well, that is certainly what fans are doing now that Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have broken up. The Riverdale pair was the true definition of couple goals. They seemed to truly love one another and get along, and it didn’t hurt that their characters, Betty and Jughead, were also in a relationship.
Why did Reinhart and Sprouse break up?
While this break up may seem abrupt to fans, sources told E! News that the couple’s relationship was “always up and down.”
This split came “after an argument while on their break from filming,” which ultimately made Sprouse decide to end the relationship.
How are they going to work together?
Usually, when you break up with someone, they are out of your life. You stop seeing each other and you eventually get over them. For Sprouse and Reinhart, things won’t be that easy, as they still have to work together on Riverdale.
“Cole and Lili will be able to deal with it,” a source told HollywoodLife. “The show’s writers and producers are aware and will never make anything awkward that doesn’t have to be. Their working relationship will be just that. They can coexist and will continue to coexist because they know the show is important to them and so many other people who work for it and fans alike.”
Though the situation will be tough, both stars are committed to trying to make things as normal as possible.
“Cole and Lili are going to try extra hard to not make things awkward,” the source continued. “People are going to talk and they are going to have to feel it all out and feel like they have to defend themselves at times. It’s an emotional process. It likely will be more awkward for everyone else besides them. Because people like drama and it will be brought up on set. Once things settle, it’s about the job and the show and everyone hopes they can get to that place where they can do their job and leave the nonsense far away from it all.”
Will Sprouse and Reinhart get back together?
The wounds are a little fresh now, but that doesn’t mean that the two will never have a relationship again.
“Their friendship isn’t over forever,” the source said. “But they aren’t going to be hanging out with each other as much. They are dealing with the same things everyone deals with in a breakup just on a slightly bigger scale. So their friendship will obviously be affected but they are working on trying to work it all out.”
And spending a lot of time together is a surefire way to stir up feelings again.
“Now that filming is happening again, it is very likely they will mend the relationship and get back together,” a source told E! News. “They spend A LOT of time together on set.”
“They have a lot of chemistry and it’s hard for them to deny that they truly care about each other,” the source continued.
So, who knows? Maybe we will see the two back together sooner rather than later.
