This is a sad news for the Riverdale fans as it’s over for their favourite reel couple Cole Sprouse who played Jughead Jones and Lili Reinhart who played Betty Cooper, who are also real life couple. They are known as “BUGHEAD” by their fans.
They have been dating since February 2017 at the same time when their show began premiering. This isn’t the first time the couple has sparked splitting speculations, they’ve always been battling the rumors of their breaking up in their 3 years of relationship. It is the first time that these rumors have been confirmed so, it seems they’ve officially called it quits. However, the sources confirmed that they both will always remain good friends.
It was also confirmed by people and Page Six sources that the 27-year-old actor and 23-year-old actress have broken up. Although we don’t know exactly when their split happened but we are assuming it happened before the Global Pandemic started, as they are quarantining separately.
The rumors started when their on-screen Riverdale father, Skeet Ulrich appeared with his girlfriend Megan Blake Irwin on her Instagram live ,where they were answering the fans. One fan asked Ulrich if Sprouse and Reinhart were a cute couple, in response he responded “I think they were a very cute couple” in her response Megan stressed “were”: “They were a very cute couple. They’re both beautiful people.”
Following there were many speculations and rumors. There were also rumors that Sprouse cheated on Reinhart with Kaia Gerber. After this rumor Sprouse posted a series of Instagram stories to deny the rumors saying “I tolerate alot of rumors and slander from people online claiming to be my fans.“
After this final blow, we have yet to see how this real life breakup will affect Season 5 of Riverdale which will see how the horny teenage cast leap into the future and become young horny adults. Brace yourself bugheads as there maybe be alot of trouble ahead for Betty and Jughead.
