Was all a publicity stunt? Was it horrendous reporting? Lili Reinhart just confirmed she’s still dating Cole Sprouse.
Actually, at this point, who really cares anymore?
On Instagram, the Riverdale actress spat out “BREAKING: A reliable source has confirmed that none of you know shit.”
Cole also took aim at the haters, writing: “UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult.”
Aww. Look at them fighting back at those breakup rumors.
In a new W magazine interview, the actress explains her request to be interviewed as an individual, telling the interviewer, “We want our own separate identities.”
Cole added, “Lili is an incredibly talented individual who speaks for herself and deserves her own box in every single way. That alone is justification enough for me to do it like this. I don’t think we’re weaving two different narratives here.”
The couple’s representatives have yet to respond to requests for a comment about the status of the screen-to-real-life romance.
As for her relationship, this is what Reinhart told W Magazine:
“Though Reinhart is the less sociable of the two, she said it was Sprouse who pushed for harder boundaries between their public and private lives early on. “At first, I didn’t want things private,” Reinhart said, referring to their relationship. “Now that I’m X amount of years in, I do appreciate the privacy we have, that he’s encouraged me to take. No one knows how long we’ve been together, and no one will until we’re ready to say it. No one knows how we fell in love, except for our close friends and us. It’s really special.” She alluded, briefly, to the potential logistical dilemma of them parting ways, though in the context of their fictional romance. “If and when we break up on the show, I don’t know,” she said, trailing off. “It’s weird being with an actor. You deal with shit no one has to deal with.”
Fans seem to be relishing in the photo spread amongst the confusing rumors.
