‘Riverdale’ Star Camila Mendes Is Dating Her Co-Star and No, It’s Not KJ Apa
Sorry, Archiekins, but it looks like Veronica's found a new Riverdale High beau—and he's totally captain of the football team.
Camila Mendes, who plays affluent teen Veronica Lodge on Riverdale, is apparently dating her co-star Charles Melton, who plays high school jock Reggie Mantle on the hit CW series.
While Veronica and Reggie haven't gotten along so well on the show, things between Mendes and Melton seem to be heating up. The rumored couple made their romance Instagram official on Sunday (October 8) when Mendes, just hours after the Riverdale panel at New York Comic Con, shared a sweet photo of Melton smooching her face.
"Mine," she captioned the image, which co-star Apa later commented on to ask, "Are u guys dating?"
"I'm sorry you had to find out this way," Mendes responded.
The news of Mendes and Melton's blossoming relationship comes just a month following the actress's split from ex-boyfriend Victor Houston back in August.
Riverdale Season 3 premieres on The CW Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. EST.
