“Were?!” Does that mean they aren’t together anymore? According to People Magazine, the couple has decided to go their separate ways. A source told the outlet, “they tend to be on and off but are currently not together.”
Another insider explained to E! News, “Lili and Cole were in a good place when Riverdale was shut down due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but they isolated separately and distance has never been a good thing for their relationship. When Cole and Lili are around each other often, things are very good. Their relationship is very intimate and affectionate, but things become much more complicated when they’re apart.”
“Distance is never good for their relationship. They decided not to quarantine together and knew off the bat that it wasn’t going to work,” a different friend of the couple said. “They both know their communication is better when they are together in person, and it just wasn’t working.”
The sources added the pair decided to call it quits about a month ago but “remain on good terms,” and that it is more of “a break than a breakup.”
“Twitter is actually the most toxic form of social media. People are a**holes for the sake of being a**holes. Do you not understand karma? It’s fine if you don’t, you’ll understand when it bites your miserable a**,” Lili wrote in a series of now-deleted tweets on April 23, 2020. “Dear everyone on social media, don’t put down people for the sake of putting them down. Don’t be a f**king a**hole. The world doesn’t need anymore of that sh**.”
Fans first started to speculate that Cole had been unfaithful after model Kaia Gerber seemingly posted some photos from what appeared to be inside of Cole’s house. Cole also seemingly addressed the situation himself, writing on his Instagram Stories, “I tolerate a lot of rumors and slander from people online claiming to be my fans. Fans who feel entitled to my privacy precisely because I never indulge them. But attacking my friends, baseless accusations, leaking my address and sending death threats are all qualities of insanity and fanaticism.”
“When I first stepped into a public relationship this was one of the foreseeable consequences. And while I truly never intended to indulge any part of my private life to the ravenous horde, it’s clear my restraint in updating them has allowed them to push their own agenda onto my habits and lifestyle,” the 27-year-old continued. “So in conclusion, please eat my delectable plump a**.”
E! News reported at the time that the photos Kaia had shared were old and Lili and Cole were still going strong.
For those who forgot, the duo met and fell for each other on set of Riverdale, and fans are seriously living for their adorable relationship. Their characters are pretty much goals in the CW series, so when they took their romance off screen and revealed that they were dating IRL, everyone quickly became obsessed with them.
