What did Cole Sprouse say about his split with ex-girlfriend Lili Reinhart?
On August 19, 2020, Cole Sprouse took to Instagram and open about his break up from Lili Reinhart.
He told his followers: “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, is anything else you hear doesn’t matter. “
Previously, the two Riverdale co-stars called things off in May of the same year.
On March 8, 2023, Cole spoke more about his and Lili’s split in an interview on the Call Her Daddy podcast.
The Disney Channel alum recalled to the hosts: “It was really hard. I know we both did quite a bit of damage to each other.
“I think the work thing got difficult because it was hard to suspend all the way we felt about each other and it didn’t afford us the distance to really overcome that.
“We’re good friends now, which is awesome. We work really well together now.
“I think if I had loved myself a little more, I probably would have left a little earlier.”

What did Lili say about the split?
Lili revealed her side of the story and shared with Refinery29: “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.
“The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life.
“My therapist [told] me, ‘Your body’s going through withdrawal from love. You’re used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you’re with.’
“I couldn’t see the light. I was like, I feel like I’m dying. It was f***ing rough, and there’s no other way through it than just through it.”
