Wondering who Madelaine Petsch's boyfriend is? We don't blame you after the Riverdale actress seemingly 'soft launched her new relationship online. Here's the latest on Madelaine's dating sitch, as the actress hit Paris Fashion Week with her new man...

It seems Madelaine and her Riverdale co-star, Camila Mendes have teamed up to keep us guessing about their love lives after the pair posted a TikTok, in January 2023, to their joint account (which the two Riverdale girls share with Lili Reinhart)—seemingly hinting at their 'boyfriends' becoming best friends.

Right now, fans are pretty convinced that Camila Mendes is dating Rudy Mancuso, her Música co-star, but what about Madelaine's mystery fella?

Here's what we've sussed about Madelaine, aka Cheryl Blossom's current relationship sitch—plus a debrief on who the actress has been linked to previously...

Who is Madelaine Petsch's boyfriend?

From the looks of it, Madelaine is dating Halsey's manager, Anthony Li. 

Fans became aware of the new pairing after Madelaine quote-on-quote, 'soft launched' their relationship with an Instagram photo dump in October 2022. In the post, captioned "life" Madelaine and Anthony can be seen in the fifth picture, cuddling up for a mirror selfie—taken during a trip to Paris.

While Madelaine didn't tag Anthony in any of pics, Anthony also commented saying: "Thank you for representing the diversity in my photography ability between slide 1 and 3."

Madelaine then took a leaf out of Camila's book and posted another carousel for New Year's Eve, again seemingly featuring the pair hugging in the second snap and wearing matching shades of green! See picture two...

What really got fans talking though, was the TikTok Madelaine shared alongside Camilla in January 2023,  with the accompanying caption: "The moment you realize your boyfriends are becoming best friends." 

Both Madelaine and Camilla took turns to film each other sitting in silence as their "boyfriends" can be heard passionately discussing The Batman starring Robert Pattinson—as you do!

Then came even more confirmation of their romance, as the couple attended Paris Fashion Week together. Madelaine then shared an adorable video to her Instagram Story from Paris Fashion Week (on February 2, 2023) with her arms around Anthony—who also shared the very same video, plus a few snaps appreciating Madeline's Givenchy outfits. We love a supportive beau!

As of yet, neither Madelaine nor Anthony have publicly addressed their relationship, but the evidence is definitely stacking up!

So, now we've sussed out her current sitch—who has Madelaine been linked to previously?

Who has Madelaine Petsch dated?

Before her rumored relationship with Anthony Li, Madelaine was in a long-term and very public relationship with rapper, Travis Mills.

Madelaine and Travis were quite the fan-favorite pairing circa 2017, which was around the time that Riverdale first landed on Netflix. The pair dated for three years, making a number of public and red-carpet appearances together—Travis even featured in a number of Madelaine's YouTube videos. 

Sadly for fans of the couple though, they announced their split in 2020, with Travis taking to Instagram to share the news.

Along with a cute snap of him and Madelaine, he wrote: "While it pains me our journey has come to a close, I mean it when I say I’m so incredibly grateful to have shared the last 3 years with someone as compassionate, smart & wonderful as Madelaine. The personal growth made possible by our time together I wouldn’t trade for anything.⁣⁣⁣⁣"

Before adding, "I’m not deleting any of our images, I regret nothing.⁣⁣⁣⁣."
