we’ve got a few possibilities here. either 

a. both cole and lili won’t acknowledge any of this and go about their lives as if none of these articles even exist 

2. they may lighten up and become more open about the relationship they could potential be in 

or thirdly. they could straight up deny all speculation. 

as much as I appreciate these news outlets trying to let fans in on what’s going on, they don’t need to tag the two in their posts. the tags aren’t necessary. lines are being crossed.
