It's the end of the line for the relationship of Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart.

"Lili and Cole broke-up earlier this summer," a tipster told the outlet. "The two are not living together this season."

More telling is that they have been "intentionally keeping their distance from the other;" but things have improved because Riverdale Season 4 is officially in production and they are on "much better terms."

It's not like the actors have been apart in the eyes of the public.

They were with the rest of the show's cast when at the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the series on Sunday.

While it's a shame to hear that the relationship is over, it does sound like there's a glimmer of hope they could change course. 

"Right now, it's unclear where things stand, but it seems [like] they could be heading back in the direction of getting together," an insider confirmed to E! Online.

Sprouse and Reinhart's on-screen characters Jughead and Betty have been in a relationship since the show's early days. 

The characters form part of probably the most successful 'ship on the entire series.

We're talking about Bughead here. 

If you watch Riverdale online, you know that the characters have gone through their fair share of testing times during their relationship.

The E! Online report certainly seems to suggest that they could find their way back together. 

That being said, having to film intimate scenes with your ex for one of the most popular teen dramas around is not the best.

Their relationship was first teased when both Sprouse and Reinhart were spotted getting very close at Comic-Con back in 2017, but for the most part, they kept their relationship under wraps. 

But they were spotted together as a couple at the 2018 Met Gala, confirming their relationship.

Sprouse went on to talk about how their relationship kicked off later that year in an interview with Glamour. 

"Lili was a tough egg to crack, she's very shy at first, reserved, and I think it was about halfway into the first season she started letting people in truly," Sprouse said in a video for Glamour.

"And she's one of those people that consistently pushes me to be better at the arts that I'm pursuing, and that's just the kind of person she is, she inspires excellence out of everybody she works with."

As for Riverdale Season 4, it will premiere on Wednesday, October 9 at 8/7c.
