Lili Reinhart Is the Next Rupi Kaur

Lili Reinhart Is the Next Rupi Kaur

Riverdale couple Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, despite what multiple news stories and this W magazine profile would suggest, are still together. How do we know? Mainly through Reinhart's Instagram, where she recently posted a birthday photo of her beau accompanied by several lines of verse.

Her loose, Rupi Kaur-style Instapoem is self-described as "sappy," and it's hard to disagree with that descriptor after reading it. "I tried to find a poem that I could send to you," the actress begins. But she ended up writing her own because, "nothing that did you justice... No one else's words could ever fit."

The meter is awkward, but the sentiments sincere: Lili and Cole are going strong, no matter what you heard. That W writer must be so pissed.

Sprouse, by the way, appeared in the comments section with a joking "follow for follow?" which is kind of a cold response to your girlfriend's public declaration of affection, but whatever. The photo of him smoking a cigarette in a white bucket hat is also... questionable.

Lili and Cole debuted their relationship at Comic Con 2017, having presumably met on the Riverdale set in Vancouver as onscreen teen lovers Betty and Jughead. Since then they've posted about each other frequently, and Lili has implied they enjoy a healthy sex life.

I personally wish more celebrities would spurn the tabloids in stanza format, so let's hope Reinhart is starting a tradition here. Love isn't dead, and neither is poetry! Ugh, Lana's impact.
