(Newser) – The internet is buzzing after Drake and Jennifer Lopez both posted the same photo on Instagram early Wednesday—a photo showing them cuddling. Neither actually captioned the photo, but many fans are assuming that it confirms existing rumors that the rapper and singer are dating. The rumors first circulated earlier this month when Drake, 30, showed up twice at 47-year-old Lopez's Vegas show, People reports.

Mashable reports that "people are freaking out" over the photo, rounding up some of the shocked online reactions. And E! notes that Drake's on-again, off-again love Rihanna unfollowed both him and J.Lo on Instagram after the picture was shared. But TMZ thinks the photo is way too staged, and guesses that the whole thing is simply "genius marketing" for the music they're working on together. (Read more Jennifer Lopez stories.)
