Watch: Are Camila Mendes & Charles Melton Back Together?!

Riverdale's Charles Melton might know a thing or two about love, but spelling it appears to be a different story. 

The 30-year-old actor visits The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday, June 15, as seen in preview footage. During the appearance, the actor known for playing Reggie Mantle admitted to host Kelly Clarkson that a fan once approached him to write what would appear to be a simple phrase so she could get it tattooed on her wrist, but he somehow botched it. 

When asked to name his craziest fan experience, Charles shared, "I'd probably say the time a fan came up to me, and she asked me to write, 'Love is love,' and for some reason, I misspelled love, but she was gonna get it tattooed on her wrist. And I was like, 'I'm so sorry,' and she was like, 'No, no, no, I'm gonna keep it.'"

This response elicited laughter from Kelly, but Charles continued undaunted by explaining, "So, I haven't seen it today, but I'm sure if you see someone that has, 'Love is love,' with the love crossed out, that's my artwork." He then added some laughter of his own.

On-Again, Off-Again Celeb Couples

Kelly commiserated by saying she gets stressed when fans want her to write out her song lyrics for their tattoos, and Charles was quick to agree. 

He lamented, "It's so much pressure because I'm like, 'All right, now do I do cursive? Do I do box letters? What do I do?'"

While the word might have the Sun Is Also a Star performer stymied, the emotion itself appears to be important one to him. Indeed, a source exclusively told E! News earlier this month that he and Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes have rekindled their romance after initially parting ways in 2019. 

"Being around all of their mutual friends and hanging out together often made them realize they still have a strong connection and chemistry," the insider shared.
