Cole Sprouse has confirmed his split from his Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart with slim to no chance of reconciliation.
Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart’s split were first reported months ago. However, some sources claimed that there were chances that they would get back together. Unfortunately, Sprouse’s announcement suggested that their recent split was for good.
Cole Sprouse confirmed permanent split from Lili
Cole Sprouse broke his silence about his relationship with Lili Reinhart. The Five Feet Apart actor confirmed that they temporarily separated in January and decided to call it quits for good in March.
“Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March,” he wrote on Instagram.
“What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”
Sprouse ended his message by promoting Reinhart’s movie. Reinhart stars on Amazon Studios’ Chemical Hearts, which will premiere on August 21.

What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter. Also her movie comes out soon! I’m sure she’s just as incredible in it as everything else she does. Thanks guys ❤️
Sprouse’s statement happened after Lili’s tweet and interview
Lili Reinhart had an interview with Refinery, where she opened up about her struggles due to depression.
“I couldn’t see the light. I was like, I feel like I’m dying. It was fucking rough, and there’s no other way through it than just through it,” she said.
“I’ve seen a lot of people when it comes to heartache and grief and breakups, and they try to get that void filled with sex, with coke, with food, with drinking, [but] the void is still there. I took the road less traveled and just dealt with my shit. I had to face my own pain head-on.”
Several outlets mistook Reinhart’s statement by reporting that it had something to do with Sprouse. The Chemical Hearts star immediately took to Twitter to correct it.
“Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a ‘breakup.’ They are about the depression I’ve felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait,” Reinhart wrote.
“I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression,” she added.
