The news comes just days after her reported split from Riverdale co-star, Cole Sprouse. The couple reportedly called it quits for the second time last month — eight months after rekindling their romance in September 2019. News of the breakup came on May 25 after weeks of speculation due to Lili and Cole, 27, quarantining separately during the COVID-19 pandemic. The actor is currently staying with his Riverdale co-star, KJ Apa amid the global health crisis, his twin brother, Dylan Sprouse recently revealed in a Zoom interview with Entertainment Tonight on May 27.

Fans were also speculating that the pair had split back in May after Skeet Ulrich, who plays Cole’s father on Riverdale, spoke about the couple in the past tense during an Instagram Live.
“I think they were a very cute couple,” Skeet, who was joined by his girlfriend, Megan Blake Irwin, said. She chimed in, adding, “They were a very cute couple. They’re both beautiful people.”
Even before Skeet and Megan’s live, Lili and Cole were forced to address breakup rumors back in March when Cole was seen leaving a vehicle with model Kaia Gerber, 18, in Los Angeles. Cole and Lili were quick to shut down cheating speculation when critics came for him on social media.
Cole and Lili met in 2016 on the set of the CW’s hit series, Riverdale, in which they play love interests Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper. They sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2017, and later made their red-carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in New York City in May 2018. Cole and Lili have not addressed or confirmed reports that they’ve split.
