Just days after reports that Charles and Camila left a dinner with friends together, we have learned that the pair is allegedly back together. According to E! News, "the break was nice for them and they reconnected on set of Riverdale." Apparently, "being around all of their mutual friends and hanging out together often made them realize they still have a strong connection and chemistry." Things are reportedly going well for the couple "and they aren't putting too much stress on the relationship."
As of now, neither Camila nor Charles have spoken publicly about the relationship.

Following the dinner, Charles and Camila reportedly left together in Charles' car.
After a few months of not hearing anything from Chamila, we learned the pair broke things off shortly after celebrating their one-year anniversary. According to E! News, the actors decided to take "a break from their relationship." Apparently it "escalated very quickly" and they wanted to take time to "focus on their work and themselves."

I know it's hard to believe because it seems like they've been together for forever, but Charles and Cami just celebrated their one year anniversary together! For the past year, we've been blessed with hilarious selfies, adorable red carpet moments, and, of course, some onscreen action on Riverdale.
Camila celebrated the milestone with a gorgeous photo on Instagram, though she has since deleted the pic. It featured the couple kissing on a boat, in front of a stunning sunset.
Along with the photo, Cami included a very simple caption: "365 days. i love you." Someone pass a box of tissues because these two are too much!

Camila posted a sweet message for Charles on the eve of his The Sun is Also a Star premiere.
"I remember the day @melton told me about this project," she began the now-deleted post. "We were still just friends then. He hadn’t even been cast yet. They hadn’t even started casting. All he told me was 'I'm going to play this role, I am Daniel Bae.'"
Camila went on to praise Charles saying he has the biggest heart out of anyone she knows, as well as passion and tenacity. "Watching him throw his entire heart and soul into this story of love taught me a lot about the kind of person he is. I’m probably sharing too much, but before we started dating he’d often get mad at me for trying to bring logic into love. He taught me that love doesn’t have an explanation, it either exists or it doesn’t. It was his vulnerability not only as an actor, but also as a man, that taught me that valuable message, one that is so relevant to this film. iI’m so proud of you Charles, and so grateful to have witnessed this beautiful journey of yours. Can’t wait for the world to see what you’re capable of ♥️ Happy premiere day!!"
Of course, Cami escorted Charles to the premiere for the movie as well. And they looks so absolutely in love on the red carpet.
While on the red carpet for the event, Camila gushed to Entertainment Tonight about how happy she was to be support Charles on his big night. "It means so much!" She said. "I feel like I've been hearing about this project since forever, so to finally see all of this come to fruition is a beautiful thing."
Camila also revealed the sweetest thing that Charles does for her...he writes love letters!!! "He's a hopeless romantic for sure!" OK, I am officially in LOVE with this couple.

Charles and Camila proved that they can do glamour like no one else when they stepped out on the Met Gala red carpet together. The couple took on the theme of "Camp: Notes on Fashion," with grace, looking absolutely gorgeous in a shiny blue suit and yellow feathery dress, respectively.
With this event, Camila and Charles join the ranks of Riverdale couples who completely slay the Met Gala red carpet. They're in very good company.
May 1, 2019
In a new interview with Teen Vogue, Camila said that she's not here for hiding things, but that she's becoming more selective with what she decides to share with the world. "I'm not a private person," she said. "I don't like hiding. But the more I get used to this lifestyle the more I reevaluate what I want to share and what I don't."
In the interview, Camila also opened up about how Twitter comments about her relationship with Charles used to bother her.
But now they just don't. "I know I'm happy, and I know where I am in my life, so I'm going to let [people on Twitter] say whatever they want. Why should I care?"
In November 2018, Camila clapped back at a "fan" that was coming for her relationship by comparing a photo of her with her ex, Victor Houston, with a photo of her with Charles. "I'm happier than I've ever been in my life," she wrote.
Camila also went on Twitter to tell her real fans she loved them.
Clearly, Camila does not play when it comes to Charles.
April 19, 2019:
It seems like Camila and Charles' relationship is getting more and more serious everyday (unfortunately, I can't say the same about Veronica and Reggie). This weekend, the two took a major step and they shared it on Instagram.
Camila attended Coachella this past weekend with two friends by her side, Charles' sisters Tammie and Patricia! Of course, Charles was there as well, but the three ladies seemed to be having some quality girl time together.
April 15, 2019:
Camila and Charles just hit a very important relationship milestone: a shirt that says "ask me about my butthole." Once you start talking butts in a relationship, you know things are getting serious. Camila proved the point my captioning the photo: "there's something about him, but I can't quite put my finger on it."
Chamila's resident third-wheel Lili Reinhart commented on the pic to share that she too is pro-butthole – and also to point out a really weird detail you probably missed in the background.
I think I love them even more now.
April 5, 2019:
Charles and his co-star, Yara Shahidi, in new movie The Sun Is Also a Star, graced the cover of Cosmopolitan's May issue, and they look 🔥🔥🔥. But more importantly, in the cover interview, the Riverdale star swooned over GF Camila in the cutest way.
Charles admitted that he was totally thinking about Camila when he auditioned for the movie. Yara's character, who plays his love interest, is the more sensible one of the two, just like Camila in her IRL relationship with Charles. "I may or may not have been thinking about — when I auditioned, when I was doing my research — a certain relationship,” he told Cosmopolitan. "Thinking about, you know, kind of how I’d be."
AW. As if the interview couldn't get any cuter, he also reportedly zoned out during his chat with the magazine and said, "I was just thinking about my girlfriend for a second."
So I guess it's safe to say the two are pretty serious!
March 28, 2019:
Charles Melton and Camila Mendes just took a HUGE step in their relationship! According to the Daily Mail, Camila just moved into Charles' apartment in Vancouver. It seems like it was a super fast move for the both of them as Charles was traveling the next day, according to his Instagram story.
With the cast coming back for another season next year, it looks like Charles and Camila will have plenty of time to get cozy in their new place together.
February 19, 2019:
Charles Melton recently showed off some new ink that had people wondering if he really got Camila's name on his chest. Now, Camila is setting the record straight, revealing that it's actually NOT REAL.
At least Charles has a good idea what to get when he finally gets the real one.
January 4, 2019:
Charles turned 28 and Camila was right beside him in South Korea ringing in the big bday!
In honor of her bae's bday, Camila posted the most incredible pic of the couple dressed in hanboks, traditional Korean clothing. "Happy birthday @melton i will always protect you 💖," she captioned the now-deleted pic.
The two went on vacation in South Korea and spent time with Charles' family and seeing the sights.
December 28, 2018:
The couple spent some quality time with an adorable puppy in Korea. Though it's unclear who's dog it is, it made an appearance on both Camila and Charles' Instagram stories. Later, they headed out to dinner and to a karaoke bar.
Later, Cami and Charles headed to the spa with a friend where they enjoyed a foot soak in matching robes.
Next time, why don't you invite me to join?!
December 26, 2018:
While it doesn't seem like the young couple celebrated Christmas together, they are having their own belated celebration now, heading off to Korea together for their first trip as a couple!
Camila posted a pic of her and Charles' tickets on her Instagram story, followed by a shot of some delicious looking Korean BBQ and I am officially jealous.
Before they left for the trip, Cami and Charles seemed to have a little gift exchange, with Charles giving his GF $890 boots from Miu Miu. Camila posted a pic of her new boots on her Instagram story with the caption, "he done good," and I can't help but agree!
Want the boots for yourself? Get them here:
November 26, 2018:
The new couple took a major step in their relationship as they spent Thanksgiving together with Camila's family in Miami. Camila couldn't stop posting photos of her and her beau as they enjoyed the sights and good weather.
Charles also shared a couple of photos of the two of them together, including one of them on a yacht.
So will Cami spend Christmas with Charles' family? Guess we'll have to wait to find out!
November 14, 2018:
Despite that fact that Camila's relationship with Charles is going strong af, it's KJ Apa who Camila kisses every week on Riverdale. While watching a recent episode, Charles Melton showed off how he really feels about his girlfriend's on screen romance, and KJ caught it on tape.
Poor Charles! Look at his face at the end!
Don't worry Charles, I'm sure Cami is thinking about you while she's mounting KJ.
November 11, 2018:
During her interview with them, Camila was told that they had a "fan" question that someone sent in. That "fan" ended up being Charles who asked her, "what's it like to work with Charles?"
"It's a lot, very intense," she joked. "You can't talk to him, you can't look at him. He only eats cashews rolled in cheese."
Jason Kennedy revealed that he's close friends with Charles and was told to ask her, "who is baby dragon?"
"I'm baby dragon! I'm just like a baby dragon," Camila said, admitting to the cute nickname Charles has for her. "Cause I'm kind of, you know, ferocious a little bit. I'm cute, but psycho."
They're slowly becoming our favorite Riverdale couple and we hope we get more cute moments between them soon.
November 7, 2018:
Camila Mendes has no interest in your opinion regarding her relationship. After one fan took to Instagram, claiming Camila looked happier with her ex, Victor Houston, than she does with her new boyfriend and fellow Riverdale star, Charles Melton, Camila responded, setting the record straight.
"I feel silly responding to this but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you're wrong," Camila wrote in the comments of the post. "I'm happier than I've ever been in my life."
Camila then went on to explain the situation behind each pic to give the fan a little more context. "Charles and I were on our way to shoot a self tape, which he helped me with all day," she explained. "Literally stopped everything he was doing to help me tape the perfect audition. I was running 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 camera pointed at us. See the difference?"
While the situation was obviously super awkward, it is nice to hear that Camila is so happy in her new relationship.
October 7, 2018:
Camila finally confirmed that she's dating fellow Riverdale star, Charles Melton! The actress posted a now-deleted pic of the two of them on Instagram with the caption, "Mine," so it doesn't get more obvious than that.
Of course, the rest of the Riverdale crew was very excited about the news.
September 20, 2018:
Rumors are really sparking! According to E! News, a source spotted Charles and Camila at a movie in Vancouver and they were getting pretty close.
"Camila sat next to Charles and leaned on his shoulder," said the source. "As the lights were dimming, my friend saw them kiss!"
September 3, 2018:
Many of the Riverdale cast spent Labor Day Weekend together, and this one pic, of the crew on a boat got a lot of people talking. Look at Charles and Cami cuddled up together in a towel!
August 23, 2018:
Camila Mendes broke up with her boyfriend, Victor Houston, meaning she is single and open to a relationship! Previously, Camila has stated that she doesn't like dating actors, especially those working on the same project as her.
"It’s just dating people in the industry is tough," she told Nylon. "I did for a little bit. I’ve just dated actors. It’s hard when that’s your world. You only meet people through work and that can be really tough, because you’re not necessarily meeting people that you’re similar to. It’s just people that you’re with because you’re working on the same project. I’ve learned to not do that."
Despite these comments, we think she would make an exception for the right guy.
June 27, 2018:
The relationship between Charles and Camila is not starting off on a great note. One Riverdale fan on Twitter unsurfaced some tweets from Charles back in 2012 that were extremely offensive.
The fat-shaming tweets were especially upsetting to Camila, who is a body positivity activist and has talked about her experiences with eating disorders in the past. When Camila was asked how she felt about Charles' tweets, she said that he actually called her to apologize about them. "He was devastated," she told Access. "He felt really sorry about it."
"With everything that I stand for, he said that he was really sorry," said Camila. "And I know Charles. I know he's not actually a bad person. I think it's a matter of sometimes you tweet things forever ago and they get buried in there and they come out and it sucks. And I don't agree with anything he said or support those statements, but I know that's not who he is."
