News reported that Reinhart and Sprouse were spending the isolation apart from each other since Riverdale’s filming was halted mid-March.

Insiders said that the time apart caused the pair to break up. Sharing with E! News the insider said that the duo was in a good place when Riverdale’s production was halted due to the pandemic. However, they quarantined separately and the distance put a strain on their relationship. Things are good when Reinhart and Sprouse are together.

The news was a surprise for fans as the couple was very close the past few years. The insider said that they may reconcile after the lockdown is over. Reinhart and Sprouse may reunite once filming resumes. They said that they were not interested in dating others but were using this time to relax and focus on themselves. On June 3, Reinhart shared a flyer promoting an LGBTQ Black Lives Matter protest in West Hollywood in her Instagram story.
