Yesterday was a seriously sad day for Riverdale fanatics everywhere. After a fun-filled weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that showrunners Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart had split after nearly two years of dating. Why did Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart split? It might have something to do with her Hustlers co-star.

We all know that the hit Netflix original Riverdale brought Sprouse and Reinhart together on-screen as Betty and Jughead, but that chemistry also turned into an adorable relationship off-screen. 

The news of Sprouse and Reinhart's breakup came as a shock to plenty of people when it broke yesterday. Initially, we didn't have a lot of insight as to what led up to the couple's split, but a source has informed Narcity of some further details.

"Part of their break-up is associated with Lili starring in her upcoming movie ‘Hustlers’ due to her schedule and her co-star, British actor, Tommy Hatto. The news of them starring together was confirmed back in March."

"Tommy stars as Lili’s love interest in the movie and they were seen getting quite close onset, as this was the first acting role that Lili has had since where she has an on-screen boyfriend. It looks highly likely that Lili and Tommy will be spending Lili’s birthday together as they will be in the middle of the Hustlers press tour."

Hatto is an up and coming British actor who currently has just over 1,200 followers on Instagram, one of whom is NOT Reinhart. The pair may be playing a couple in Hustlers, but they definitely aren't making anything social media official quite yet.

Reinhart and Sprouse have yet to confirm or deny the rumours about their recent split, although Sprouse was overheard talking about it to a friend at a Comic-Con party over the weekend. Only time will tell if Betty & Jughead have really called it quits IRL, or if it's just a temporary break.
