However, as of mid-year, she hasn’t been active on Twitter, although she still regularly uploads photos onto her Instagram account.
Love life and relationships
When “Henry Danger” started airing in 2014, many of the show’s fans were quick to assume that Riele and her co-star, Jace Norman, were dating off-screen. The rumors followed them for the next few years, although they both confirmed that they were just friends. However, some fans still believe that they were in a relationship, because the two were frequently spotted together when not filming.
Right now, Riele seems to be more focused on her career, and as she splits her time between Toronto and Los Angeles, California, she might not even have time for a relationship.
Riele currently appears to be single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
