Actor Cole Sprouse has been called out for 'humiliating' ex-girlfriend Lili Reinhart after the actor gave a tell-all interview about their relationship on International Women's Day.
The Riverdale actor said that they’d done ‘a lot of damage to each other’ during the turbulent three years they were together and went on to claim that ‘almost every one of his girlfriends’ had emotionally cheated on him.
Talking on the Call Her Daddy podcast, the 30-year-old actor told listeners that the ‘cliches of dating someone you work with are very much true'.
The couple originally met in 2017 on the set of Netflix’s Riverdale, with Reinhart and Sprouse becoming close as the series became an overnight success.
While the series went from strength to strength, it put a huge amount of pressure on the couple, who walked the red carpet at The Met Gala together in 2018.
In a revealing moment, the former Friends star said: “We both did a lot of damage to each other. The work thing got difficult because it was hard to suspend the way we felt about each other and it didn't afford us the luxury of distance to overcome that.”
Whilst Sprouse did say that they were now friends, he left out very few details about their relationship and their 2020 split.
Lighting a cigarette inside as he spoke to host Alex Cooper, he admitted that the relationship should have ended sooner.
“It absolutely lasted longer because we worked together. There was a lot of pressure and I think if I had loved myself more, I would have left earlier,” he said bluntly as he smoked.
Sprouse continued: “I didn't think the public needed to know about my heartbreak which created a grey area when I was pictured with other people.”
Though the actor may have thought his honesty was refreshing, former fans have claimed he ‘humiliated’ the Reinhart with his admission.
Taking to Twitter to vent their frustration, fans reacted angrily and were frustrated that his tell-all interview was released on International Women’s Day.
Shocked about Sprouse dragging his ex, one user wrote: “Cole Sprouse humiliating Lili Reinhart on International Women’s Day is just pure devil attitude.”
Others agreed, also condemning the actor for smoking: “I am getting major second hand embarrassment in watching that podcast with Cole Sprouse, like mans really thought he was doing something.”
UNILAD has contacted representatives for Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart for a comment.
