Right before a commercial break in the middle of this year's MTV Video Music Awards, the super-hot new couple could be seen walking down a narrow hallway backstage — holding hands!
The "aww" moment was over in the blink of an eye, but several Twitter users posted photos of the couple's inaugural PDA. Good thing, since they didn't walk the red carpet together or sit together. If not for the photos, we might never have known — the new couple are obviously working hard to keep their burgeoning romance under wraps.
Ever since the release of their new collab "Best Mistake," rumors have been flying that the two are more than friends. They were first spotted out together in early August, when they caught a movie at The Grove in Los Angeles. An eyewitness told E! News he saw the pair kiss before they left the movie early. Hmm.
But a source close to the two denied rumors of a love connection, saying they're just close friends.
"They have been friends since they made the song together. They have been spending more time together and recently have been getting very close. They are both doing great," that source told E! News.
Maybe they were at the time, but now it sure looks like they're a lot more more.
Both have had some pretty ugly breakups recently — Ariana from Jai Brooks and Big Sean from Naya Rivera, who since married actor Ryan Dorsey in a secret Mexico wedding — and Ariana's had some tough times with the recent death of her grandfather, so it's good to see them moving on, finding happiness and taking it public.
