I regret to inform you, but all the time we spent debating whether Camila Mendes and Charles Melton's couple name should be Chelton, Charmila, or Celton was in vain. According to some loose-lipped sources, they've split.
Camila and Charles—who play Veronica and Reggie on Riverdale—were dating offscreen for about a year, but their romantic ties have been cut. To get you up to speed, here's a trip through their entire relationship timeline:
September 3, 2018

November 7, 2018
Cami claps back at a "fan" who claims she looked "happier" with her ex.
"I feel silly responding to this, but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you're wrong. I'm happier than I've ever been in my life. It's absurd to me that you call yourself a fan, yet your entire page is dedicated to disrespecting my relationship and my boyfriend, both of which you clearly know nothing about."
"Charles and I were on our way to shoot a self-tape, which he helped me with all day. [He] literally stopped everything he was doing to help me tape the perfect audition. I was running the lines in my head without even knowing there was a pap taking photos of us. Victor and I were at Comic Con, walking toward a huge line of fans, knowing there were cameras pointed at us. See the difference? I hope you're young, because that seems to be the only justification for this kind of immaturity."

Nothing says together forever like a tattoo, right? Charles took the ~ultimate~ oath when he got Cami's name inked on his chest on Valentine's Day. But before you freak out, Cami eventually revealed that the tat was fake.
It’s the thought that counts tho!
March 1, 2019
In an interview with LA Confidential, Camila explains why she doesn't talk much about her relationship with Charles:
"In my day-to-day life, I am an open book. But I've also developed this sixth sense. I understand how my spoken words can translate into written words and how things can appear out of context. It's like, yeah, even though I feel comfortable talking about some things, do I really want to see it written over and over again? Sometimes, it's not really worth it."
But she did say that working with Charles is "great." Yeah, I'm sure getting paid to make out with your boyfriend is great.

December 4, 2019
Welp, Camila and Charles are reportedly over. According to an E! source, they've "been separated for a few months now." The source added, "Their relationship escalated very quickly and they are taking time now to focus on their work and themselves."
The source said even though there were alleged "ups and downs" in their relationship, Charles and Camila are still chill. There's no bad blood between them because they were just too "busy and overwhelmed and it was a lot of pressure on them."
And that brings us up to date on their time together. But on the off-chance they get back together and inhale any of the same air particles that Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Pete Davidson, Ariana Grande, Priyanka Chopra, and Nick Jonas did last year, we'll let you know.
