"Riverdale" Star Mark Consuelos Reacted To Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse's Breakup In An Interview
Looks like no one knows what's really going on.
Whether you've seen a single episode of Riverdale or not, you're probably aware by now that two of the show's stars, Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have broken up. The news was confirmed by various media outlets earlier this week, although neither actor has released a statement. Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse's breakup surprised Riverdale co-star Mark Consuelos.
Of all the Riverdale cast members, Consuelos is the first to be able to speak publically about the couple's recent split. In an interview with Andy Cohen on Radio Andy, Consuelos was asked if he could confirm the rumours that Sprouse and Reinhart had officially called it quits.
Despite working closely with the couple, it turns out Consuelos is just as out of the loop as the rest of us. "Is that true? I have… you know I’ve been gone from Vancouver for about ten days so I have no idea what’s going on over there", he responded to Cohen's question about the breakup.
Cohen then went on to say that he was never allowed to ask about Sprouse and Reinhart's relationship when they were together, to which Consuelos replied, "That’s surprising. I just kind of always knew that they were together. When I joined the show it was already a thing. I came on second season so I don’t know what happened the first season."
News ofcame this week, after spectators noticed that the pair maintained their distance from one another at San Diego Comic-Con events over the weekend. Sprouse was reportedly overheard telling a friend of his that the two had in fact broken up.
Although this isn't confirmed, a source told Narcity thatplayed a key role in the Riverdale star's split. Reinhart and up-and-coming British actor Tommy Hatto play a couple in the film and have been spending a lot of time together on press tours.
