"Please re-evaluate your priorities": Lili took to Tumblr to set the record straight.

Watching our faves on television every week can make us feel like they're our friends. Complex storylines, onscreen hookups, and playful social media accounts can trick a lot of people into thinking they're entitled to know every detail of a famous person's life. 

Riverdale's Lili Reinhart has been linked to her co-star, Cole Sprouse, for the better part of this year. Fans even want to see her and KJ Apa take a crack at an offscreen romance. Lili, however, would kindly like for you all to stop shipping her "with literally everyone I make eye contact with."

Lili posted a brief but stern message on her Tumblr account.  

It’s horrifying how invested some people are in my love life. Emphasis on “my.” It is mine. It is private. If a stranger’s love life is causing you anger, frustration or anxiety… please reevaluate your priorities. I also want to point out that there is a difference between shipping Betty and other characters, and shipping me with literally everyone I make eye contact with. There are so many other things to focus your attention and energy on.

Lili hasn't confirmed a romance with anyone this year and the constant rumour mongering is clearly becoming too much to handle. While we may be interested in Betty Cooper's love life, Lili Reinhart isn't her TV character.  

A separate (now deleted) Tumblr post has also been circulating, and it basically hits the nail on the head.

The cast are extremely close and sometimes a close friendship can look like romance. Clearly, Lili isn't a fan of the shipping bonanza currently taking place in the fandom.
