Does Cole Sprouse have a new woman in his life? That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds after he was spotted spending a lot of time with Reiña Silva recently. Well guys, we decided to break down their relationship once and for all, so here’s what you need to know about his rumored new girlfriend…
Who Is Reiña Silva?
Silva is a 22-year-old model who has racked up more then 90,000 followers on Instagram. She lives in Vancouver, CA, where Sprouse is currently filming the fifth season of Riverdale.
According to the star, she started out as a dancer, but eventually turned to modeling.
“All the older girls were getting into modeling and I was like, ‘Oh my god, that’s so cool,'” she once said in a YouTube video.
When Did She And Cole Sprouse Meet?
It’s unclear when they first met, but it appears that Sprouse and Silva got close after she modeled for him on October 11, 2020. At the time, the former Disney star shared some shots from the photoshoot to his Instagram account.
Then, in a series of photos obtained by E! News on October 26, 2020, the actor and the brunette beauty were seen hugging and packing on the PDA while out and about in Vancouver. According to an onlooker, they also shared a kiss on the cheek and were spotted holding hands while heading to dinner afterwards.
Although we don’t know when the relationship officially started, back in January, when asked if she was single in a YouTube video, Silva replied, “Absolutely.”
Who Has Cole Sprouse Previously Dated?
In the past, Sprouse had relationships with his Riverdale costar Lili Reinhart, fellow NYU classmate Bree Morgan, actress Alyson Stoner and Victorious alum Victoria Justice. There were also rumors that he dated fellow Suite Life of Zac and Cody stars Sophie Oda and Katelyn Pippy, actress Kathleen Herles, Cory in the House alum Maiara Walsh and fashion designer Erin Barr over the years.
What Happened With Him And Lili Reinhart?
His most-famous relationship was probably with Reinhart. We mean, their characters were practically couple goals in the CW show, so when they took their love off the screen and into real life, it was definitely a dream come true for Riverdale fans!
For those who forgot, the pair was first spotted kissing in July 2017, and after that they quickly became couple goals. Over their three-year relationship, they constantly shared cute pictures together, gushed over each other in interviews and attended events side by side. But in August 2020, fans were left shocked when the 28-year-old announced that they had split a few months earlier.
“Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March,” Sprouse wrote on Instagram. “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, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”
Why Did They Break Up?
So what went wrong? Well, at the time, a source explained to E! News, “Lili and Cole were in a good place when Riverdale was shut down due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but they isolated separately and distance has never been a good thing for their relationship. When Cole and Lili are around each other often, things are very good. Their relationship is very intimate and affectionate, but things become much more complicated when they’re apart.”
“Distance is never good for their relationship. They decided not to quarantine together and knew off the bat that it wasn’t going to work,” another insider said. “They both know their communication is better when they are together in person, and it just wasn’t working.”
What Happened In His Other Relationships?
Since Sprouse is pretty private, there’s not a lot of information about his other relationships online. In fact, we wouldn’t have even known about his romance with Justice if Stoner didn’t talk about it during an interview in 2017!
“The first boy, I guess, that I had like a crush on and dated was Cole Sprouse,” she explained. “We were maybe 11. I don’t remember. [In the end], he just said, ‘It’s not going to work out.’ He and Victoria Justice had a thing before me, and so I was always like super nervous, jealous — not jealous, insecure more so. She’s a babe, like what am I gonna do? What do I have to offer? I play sports — I don’t know.”
