Lili Reinhart Reveals Why She Didn’t Come Out Before

Lili gave the reason behind why she didn’t come out before in a recent interview. She has always been in a heterosexual relationship and coming out as a bisexual earlier would seem fake to the people and the media. However, after breaking up with Cole, she thought it was the right time to come out. She said, “I felt that since I’ve exclusively been in hetero-normative relationships, it would be too easy for any outsider, especially the media, to vilify me and accuse me of faking it to get attention.”

Close Friends Of Lili Reinhart Knew About Her Sexuality

Lili also made it clear that her sexuality was not a thing that she kept as a secret from everyone. Anyone close to her and inside her inner circle knew that she was a bisexual. Her friends have been kind enough to keep this as a secret until Lili herself decided to come out. Talking about this, she said, “But to my close friends and those in my life, my bisexuality has been no secret.”
