Is Cole Sprouse dating Ari Fournier? 'Riverdale' star hints they're a couple
Cole Sprouse fans are in overdrive currently, just like he predicted on his Instagram stories on Friday, July 16. The 'Riverdale' actor wrote "time to piss off the 14yos again" before posting a couple of photos of model Ari Fournier who he is rumored to be dating. Sprouse is known for his sarcasm and his dry sense of humor. He is always the first person to poke fun at himself for the fact that he at almost 29 years of age has a fan club that comprises mostly teenagers.
Sprouse's fans have been a cause of concern for him on quite a number of occasions and he has lashed out time and again. "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. Choose humanity, stop being," he concluded this with a clown emoji. Sprouse posted these stories sometime in April 2020, months after rumors surfaced that he cheated on Lili Reinhart with Kaia Gerber. Reinhart and Sprouse's breakup news was confirmed in August 2020 with the latter confirming they decided to break up in January but they were sure about it in March.
Fast forward to the present, Sprouse posted pictures of Fornier on his stories as well as his feed after declaring his fans were going to react negatively. Let's know more about who Fournier is as Sprouse seemingly confirmed those rumors of them dating.
