Are Drake and Jennifer Lopez dating? That’s what the internet wants to know after the couple posted the same photo on Instagram Tuesday night.

Neither photo has a caption, but the couple is shown cozied up on a couch snuggling.


The photos refueled rumors that something is going on between the 47-year-old actress-singer and the 30-year-old rapper. As the Los Angeles Times notes, the speculation began earlier this month when Drake was spotted at one of J.Lo’s Las Vegas shows.

They showed up in matching selfies together that evening, too; Drake captioned his with the heart-eyed emoji.

The following week, Drake was again spotted at one of J.Lo’s Vegas shows, and then she joined him for a private dinner in West Hollywood.


Though neither J.Lo nor Drake has confirmed the romance, the Times notes that eagle-eyed social media watchers noticed that Rihanna has unfollowed both stars on Instagram since the speculation started.

Lopez said the following in a Christmas message to her fans on Instagram:

This year I can honestly say my heart is full. This year had its ups and downs, but as I sit here in my living room … I feel surrounded by love and overflowing with gratitude for the many new blessings in my life!
