One Insta Has Riverdale Fans Thinking KJ Apa & Camila Mendes are Dating!

Let’s carefully examine each and every detail of this Instagram post, featuring Camila Mendes and KJ Apa, shall we?

Mum and Dad came to visit us, my sister is so annoying omg lol smh

A post shared by KJ Apa (@kjapa) on

The faux-redheaded Riverdale star took to Instagram to share a picture of him and his brunette co-star at what looks like a dinner with two unnamed adults, along with the caption, “Mum and Dad came to visit us, my sister is so annoying omg lol smh.” Fans immediately saw this cute picture and jokey caption as a hint that the stars are dating… but we aren’t so convinced.


Before you start freaking out and thinking, “OMG, OMG, she met his parents which means they’re totally dating!” know that those are not KJ’s actual parents. The woman in the post appears to be Camila’s manager, Lena Roklin, and we know the man is for sure NOT KJ’s dad, because we’re professional stans, so we’ve obviously seen KJ’s real dad before.

KJ is an unrelenting joker on Instagram, so while some fans are really hoping that this post is a hint that his and Camila’s on-screen chemistry as Archie and Veronica has lead to a real-life romance, we’re gonna have to take anything he posts with a grain of salt. Of course, that definitely won’t stop Riverdale fans from shipping the cast members left and right, especially when it comes to show favorites like Archie and Veronica, or Bughead.


In conclusion, as much as we’d be soooo into the idea of Camila and KJ dating — just look at the adorable way they look at each other!…

…we’re also just happy to see that their friendship behind the scenes is obviously genuine. Plus, as far as we know, Camila has reportedly been dating a guy named Ian Wallace for a number of years, so we’re gonna need some more evidence before we’re convinced that she and KJ are more than just friends. Until then, we’ll just have to live vicariously through the obsession-worthy ship that is Archie and Veronica on Riverdale.
