First come dating rumors, then come celebrity couple names. It's the typical set up for new celebrity romances. But in this week's case with Drake and Jennifer Lopez, the stages of how supposed celebrity romances are played out in the public all seem to be expedited and intertwined. That's right, the dating rumors are flowing, Drake and Lopez are the talk of the town, and "Dralo" has already begun making its rounds on the internet. Fans of both of the artists are likely wondering, how did all these rumors come about in the first place? Well, of course the validity of celebrity romances are usually questionable, but the evidence that Drake and J. Lo are dating explains what all the fuss is about. I mean, hashtag #Dralo is pretty catchy already.
If this were a courtroom, then the strongest piece of evidence that would be used would be a picture that both Lopez and Drake shared on their Instagram accounts. The two reportedly (or as Dralo hopefuls would have you think) incriminated themselves by both sharing a picture of themselves looking very cozy in each other's arms. Not to mention the lighting, and the setting in the background looked all too romantic to not make you take a second look.
