"UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult," Cole wrote on his page. The pair's Riverdale costars were quick to comment on the pictures with Camila Mendes doing a clapping hand emoji and Casey Cott posting laughing emojis. Queer Eye's Tan France wrote on Lili's version, "TELL👏THEM👏KWEEEN."
In the story, Lili reveals that Cole was the one who encouraged her to keep their relationship away from the spotlight and as secret as possible. “At first, I didn’t want things private,” Reinhart said. “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. 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.”
Though their matching Instagram posts very much look like they're quashing rumours and are in fact still a couple, on closer inspection W's cover story references the split, saying that two months after their cover interview, "the two would part ways romantically." However, there was no confirmation from Cole or Lili included in the piece.
