Ah, young love. It's an exhilarating rush full of ups and downs and changing Facebook statuses and blocking people on social media. Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have the added bonus of being costars on the hit show Riverdale and living their love in the public eye. Their alleged on-again, off-again relationship has been the subject of confusion for their fans — but it's now clear that they probably never split up. Here's the evidence.

The two lovebirds have been the subject of breakup rumors since late July.

Sprouse and Reinhart have been a pair for somewhere around the past two years. They were seen at the Met Gala in May 2019 and looked pretty smitten with each other at the Five Feet Apart premiere the previous March. Earlier this summer, rumors during Comic-Con swirled that the Bughead pair quietly called it quits.

The rumors stemmed from their W magazine cover.

In the article, published the same week of the breakup reports, David Amsden noted that Sprouse and Reinhart insisted they be interviewed separately. In the interview, they individually remark on the private nature of their relationship. "No one knows how long we’ve been together, and no one will until we’re ready to say it. No one knows how we fell in love, except for our close friends and us. It’s really special," Reinhart said.

The timing of their "breakup" doesn't make sense.

"Two months later, the two would part ways romantically," Amsden wrote. BUT! In an average press cycle, a cover interview takes place about 3-4 months before the article goes to print; this story was released at the end of July 2019. Amsden even clarifies the interviews took place in May.

So if the interview happened in May...

...what were Sprouse and Reinhart doing in May 2019? *Flips through notes* Ah yes, they were being fabulous on the red carpet at the Met Gala, looking very much in love, and very much not broken up.

See? Look at them! Totally not broken up at all.

Sure, Sprouse and Reinhart could have been broken up around the time this photo was taken. And they are actors, so they know how to pretend. However, their delighted facial expressions and matching thumbs-ups for the camera looks very much not like acting. You don't flash a thumbs-up with your significant other if you're secretly fighting.

They probably never broke up at all.

The rumors stemmed, in part, from the fact that throughout May, June, and July, Sprouse and Reinhart didn't share much about each other on social media. Sprouse, who is also a photographer, didn't even post any artsy photos of his muse. But maybe, just maybe, the two wanted to keep their relationship private. Or they were both busy with non-Riverdale projects and just hadn't seen each other. I know. Imagine that.

Anyway, they've pretty much confirmed that the rumors are just rumors.

The two simultaneously unveiled their W magazine cover, each with a message pushing back against the rumors. "UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult," wrote Sprouse, giving me FOMO for not getting invited to the cult party.  Reinhart wrote, "BREAKING: A reliable source has confirmed that none of you know [redacted]," which is how I now plan on responding to men on Tinder.

So there you have it. They're still together, they probably never broke up, and they're now part of a pagan sex ritual. All's well that ends well.
