Lili Reinhart Wants People To Stop Reading Into Recent Comments, Says They're Not About Cole Sprouse Split
Lili Reinhart says she's sick of people twisting her words, after comments she’d made about feeling like she was in a 'never-ending black tunnel' were reported as being about her breakup with Cole Sprouse.
The Riverdale star wrote: “Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a ‘breakup.’ They are about the depression I’ve felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait.”
In a separate tweet, she added: “I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression.”

The article Lili’s referencing – published on US site Refinery29 and titled ‘Lili Reinhart’s Been Through Heartbreak. She Wants To Tell You About It’ – details a healing journey Lili's been on after recent struggles. Lili and Cole reportedly broke up in May this year and, while she didn't mention him by name, many other outlets had picked up on the story, alluding to the quotes being about their breakup.
In the article, Lili explained she’d felt like she was in a “black tunnel [that] was never going to end. I couldn't see the light. I was like, I feel like I'm dying. It was fucking rough, and there's no other way through it than just through it. I've seen a lot of people when it comes to heartache and grief and breakups, and they try to get that void filled with sex, with coke, with food, with drinking, [but] the void is still there. I took the road less travelled and just dealt with my shit. I had to face my own pain head-on.”
She’d continued: “The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life," she added. "And my therapist [told] me, ‘Your body's going through withdrawal from love. You're used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you're with.’ In moments of my life, I have dropped every ounce of pride that I had just to be like, Love me. Please take the pain away for a day, a second, an hour, just so I can feel that fix again.”
