Are Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart still together? Fans say 'they'll be back with each other' soon
When an on-screen couple of a popular TV show starts dating in real life, it does get their fans excited and invested in their relationship. But when the couple splits, it is equally devastating for the fans as it is for the two individuals in question. Something similar can be witnessed in the Cole Sprouse-Lili Reinhart break up. According to a Page Six report, the actress ended her three-year relationship. A source told Page Six, "Cole and Lili split before the pandemic hit and have been quarantining separately. They remain good friends."
But now, Sprouse has directly addressed the issue in his latest Instagram post. He posted a beautiful photo of Reinhart and wrote: "Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March. What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter." He also didn’t forget to give a shoutout to her new movie – 'Chemical Hearts'. "Also her movie comes out soon! I’m sure she’s just as incredible in it as everything else she does. Thanks guys."
Naturally, fans were heartbroken. The post had more than 4M likes within hours. One fan wrote: "I really thought you were gonna get married, ty for letting us all follow you both, we love you together and apart." A heartbroken fan said, "This just made 2020 the worse year but I’m happy they both are supporting each other even though they broke up. Much love to both of you."
There were hopeful fans who wished they will be back together. One wrote: "Aweee I really loved y'all together hope one day in the future y'all be together again." Another said, "I genuinely thought they were soulmates my heart. I kinda have a feeling that they might get back together in a few years when the feeling haven’t necessarily gone gone and they’ll still love each other." A supportive fan said, "Just to let you know all of us support your guys decision and have a wonderful rest of your day your a amazing person that makes people smile every day."
On the other hand, Reinhart in a recent interview to Refinery29 opened up about her mental health and said, "I couldn't see the light. I was like, I feel like I'm dying. It was f**king rough, and there's no other way through it than just through it. I've seen a lot of people when it comes to heartache and grief and breakups, and they try to get that void filled with sex, with coke, with food, with drinking, (but) the void is still there. I took the road less traveled and just dealt with my s**t. I had to face my own pain head-on."
Though many thought she was referring to her relationship with Sprouse, she clarified on Twitter in two subsequent tweets saying, "Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a 'breakup.' They are about the depression I’ve felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait." She added, "I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression."

Another said, "I thought Cole Sprouse's attitude was very beautiful, he's a real man, and just like Miley and Liam found their way back to each other that time, I'm sure the two of them will, Cole also mentioned the movie Lili is very cute, I love how he cares about her."
