The Start Of Camila Mendes And Charles Melton’s Relationship And Their Split
Back in 2018, right after Camila broke up with her then-boyfriend Victor Houston, they were spotted together for the first time out and about. A month later, they made their relationship Instagram official.
Apparently, things escalated pretty quickly and got intense. The couple dated for a little over a year and then decided to call it quits in 2019. The reason for their split was never confirmed by them. According to sources, they were both in very different places life and work-wise and wanted to focus on themselves first. They had separate projects to work on which was putting a lot of pressure on them and their relationship and this was overwhelming which is why they chose to take some time apart and focus on their individual lives and careers.
This confirmation came a few months after speculations were rife about a split between the power couple.
Are Camila Mendes And Charles Melton Back Together Now?
Like their on screen pairing who got back together after a 7-year gap, are the couple back together in real life too?
Looks like the answer is yes! Although it isn’t nearly as dramatic as it was on Riverdale. Neither was the gap that long.
After breaking up in 2019, the couple seems to be back together in 2021, 2 years later!
They met on the sets of Riverdale again and realized that they still had the same chemistry and connection. When they had broken up previously, it wasn’t because anything had gone wrong between them, it was just because of their busy schedules and lives. So it is quite possible that the love was never lost!
It looks like they have rekindled their romance although they haven’t confirmed it themselves yet. They were recently spotted dining together with their co-stars, and an on-looker reported that they left the restaurant together.
You can see Charles and Camila’s onscreen chemistry yourself on new episodes of Riverdale, Tuesdays on the CW at 9 p.m. EST.
