While her post didn’t explain much or if it was about her relationship with Sprouse, it did come days after reports surfaced alleging the two had broken up, after reportedly dating for the last two years. (RELATED: PHOTOS: The Ladies Of ‘Riverdale’ Strip Down For Stunning Cosmo Magazine Spread)

Sprouse, 26, posted the same cover photo on his social media account and captioned it simply, ““UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult.”

In the interview for the magazine done two months ago, Reinhart explained why it was important to both of them to keep details of their relationship out of the public eye, per People magazine.

“At first, I didn’t want things private,” Reinhart explained. “Now that I’m X amount of years in, I do appreciate the privacy we have, that he’s [Sprouse] encouraged me to take.”

“No one knows how long we’ve been together, and no one will until we’re ready to say it,” she added. “No one knows how we fell in love, except for our close friends and us. It’s really special.”

“Until you go through the paces and the dating stages and know that something is right for you, I don’t think it’s appropriate to bring others in,” Sprouse explained. “But in all honesty, my own happiness and her [Reinhart] happiness come before caring about what people are saying.”
