Are they, aren’t they?

Rihanna and Drake have been teasing us for years about whether they’re a couple or just besties who, um, enjoy grinding up on each other on stage.

But over the past week it’s been looking increasingly likely that the pair are more than just BFFs.

It started with Drake’s totes emosh speech and that slightly awkward on-stage kiss at the VMAs. Then the pair followed that up with ANOTHER KISS, this time initiated by Rihanna at a Miami club, before leaving hand in hand.

And now? We’ll Rihanna’s just declared her love for Drake.

Well, kinda.

RiRi took to Instagram to post a lengthy message about her VMAs win and not surprisingly her rumoured boyfriend was given a mention.

“#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget! I have the most incredible people in my life,” Rihanna writes in the emotional post. “My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team! All gifted beautiful spirits! And I’m so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other!

“It’s because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career,” she continues. “And it’s also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 set productions, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I’m made of as an artist! My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me!”

She then thanked many people for helping her get to where she is now, writing “Forever grateful to everyone involved creatively, from choreography all the way to wardrobe and production! @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell@therealmaryjblige @traceeellisross for your kind words!” before adding a special message for Drake.

So cute.

Earlier in the week, Drake paid tribute to Rihanna as well.


“This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri,” he posted on Instagram.

Guys, can you just put us out of our misery already and let us know once and for all if this romance is really on? Great, thanks.
