Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are speaking out about their relationship. 

Well, kind of … they’re being extremely difficult and misleading, but don’t worry, we’re picking up what they’re putting down. 

Which is that they are over, and most likely have been for quite some time.

Following reports of a split earlier this week, the Riverdale co-stars took to their Instagram pages to post a joint photo from their W magazine cover story, which was published earlier today.

But instead of positively promoting their interview, they decided to really throw fans a curveball and just confuse the heck out of us all. 

Not appreciated!

"BREAKING: A reliable source has confirmed that none of you know s–t," Reinhart captioned the picture to Instagram. 

Cole also shared the photo, writing, "UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult."

Well, that’s a tad dramatic.

Either way, the actors are obviously trying to make a point here. 

And sure, we don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors, but we do know that the two requested to be interviewed separately for the publication, which is very suspicious. 

The story was written in May, two months before breakup rumors began to surface, which leads us to believe that things between the two have been rocky for some time now.

"I’m so glad we’re making your job more difficult," Sprouse told the interviewer.

"We’re not fighting with the idea that people group us together, but we are paired up a lot."

Reinhart also explained at the time of the interview that there is more to them than just their relationship!

"We’re acknowledging that we’re in a relationship, but it’s a small part of who we are as people."

"We want our own separate identities," she tried to reason. 

And Cole also said that Lili is her own person, which is why it was so important for him that they do the interviews individually.

No one is buying this, right?

They also opened up about what it is like to deal with fame and how they are so successful at keeping their love life private. 

"No one knows how long we’ve been together, and no one will until we’re ready to say it," Reinhart shared.

"No one knows how we fell in love, except for our close friends and us. It’s really special."

And even though the couple clapped back at the breakup reports after they believed to have been profiled in W’s latest issue, the two did note in the article that they "would part ways romantically." 

But they just said?? … ok, forget it. 

They were able to get away from the awkward relationship topic and switch things up by reflecting on fame and how their lives had changed since appearing on the CW series.

"Only three years ago, I was eating $2 hot dogs from 7-Eleven every day," Lili said.

"I applied to Urban Outfitters and a tanning salon before I booked Riverdale. It’s not like I’m used to this life."

Sprouse, however, who grew up as a child star thanks to the Disney Channel and his twin brother, says he is now in a place where he is "chasing a lifestyle." 

Fine. But we would just like to know if real life Bughead is chasing each other, or…?? Has that ship actually sailed?? 

All we do know is that Lili and Cole were so not here for that article. 

And that we would appreciate some answers.

But despite Lili admitting that she is sometimes "exhausted" by her role of Betty on Riverdale, she can’t wait to get back to work — even if that means being in her ex’s presence. 

"Luckily, I love the people I work with," she said of the cast.

"I can’t imagine how miserable I’d be if I hated them."
