Veronica Lodge and Reggie Mantle seem to be taking a break from each other.
Riverdale stars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton have reportedly split according to Teen Vogue. Riverdale has become popular for having on-screen love interest being actually real-life couples starting with Lily Reinhart who plays Betty Cooper being paired up with real-life boyfriend Cole Sprouse who plays Jughead Jones on the CW’s teen drama based on the Archie Comics.
It was reported by multiple media outlets that Mendes and Melton have discreetly decided to have their relationship on pause for the time being. Rumors of the two surfaced back in December of last year and their relationship has seemed to be going strong.
Entertainment News reported that a source told them that Mendes and Melton have stopped seeing each other for a few months already and are taking a much-needed break from their relationship because it developed rapidly over the course of less than a year and have decided to focus on themselves and their jobs.
Last August, the actress posted a photo of her and Melton kissing marking their first year together and is still up on her Instagram page. Melton also posted a similar photo captioned ‘I love you’.
If one tries to speculate, it would seem that something happened between now and August that led to the couple’s decision to take a break from their relationship. The source also told Entertainment News that there were no issues or altercations between the two Riverdale stars that led to their apparent breakup and was just dealing with the high level of stress in their work just like everybody else.
The source added that the two have film projects of their own and have had full plates so to speak. Melton and Mendes just felt the overwhelming pressure and it weighed on them. The two of them are both fully committed to being professionals. They are still in contact with each other and both understand the need to be cordial while on set and during their media obligations.
Prior to the source disclosing the alleged split, rumors have already been circling around social media since the two Riverdale stars have not posted anything together since their anniversary posts on Instagram. People can only speculate until either Mendes or Melton confirms the apparent breakup.
One can speculate that it might be very awkward for the two since most of their time working is on the set of Riverdale where they have had and will probably have more scenes together.
