It's over for Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart

The 27-year-old actor and the 23-year-old actress have broken up, according to People and Page Six citing sources.

This isn't the first time the Riverdale couple has sparked split speculation. As fans will recall, rumors started spreading that the dynamic duo called it quits last summer. However, the Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper stars set the record straight upon the release of their W Magazine cover story, telling fans, "Don't believe everything you read on the internet, kids." Reinhart then referred to Sprouse as her "boyfriend" during a September interview with Coveteur.

In addition, Sprouse fired back at "baseless accusations" linking him to Kaia Gerber in April. At the time, a source told E! News he and Reinhart were social distancing separately but were "still together."

"Their relationship is always up and down," the insider said at the time, "but they do talk every day and care very much about one another."

Reports of Sprouse and Reinhart's romance first spread in July 2017. Still, they didn't make their first red carpet appearance together until the 2018 Met Gala.

Over the years, the co-stars have continued to play coy about the status of their relationship.

"We're not fighting with the idea that people group us together, but we are paired up a lot," Reinhart told W Magazine last May. "We're acknowledging that we're in a relationship, but it's a small part of who we are as people. We want our own separate identities."

In fact, the Hustlers star said it was Sprouse who suggested they keep their private life exactly that—private.

"At first, I didn't want things private," she told W. "Now that I'm X amount of years in, I do appreciate the privacy we have, that he's encouraged me to take. 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."

But could a real-life split impact their on-screen relationship? 

"If and when we break up on the show, I don't know," Reinhart told the publication. "It's weird being with an actor. You deal with s--t no one has to deal with."

Neither Reinhart nor Sprouse has commented on the reports.

E! News has reached out to reps for comment.
