Turns out, that wasn't that. At all. The pair showed up to the MTV VMAs dressed in throwback Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake denim outfits, which if you're going to dress like THE most epic pop music couple of all time, you d**n well better be a couple, too.
Then, Katy Instagrammed this pic of herself (sorta) holding his hand in the limo...
Still not convinced? How about the fact that Riff posted a pic of them ACTUALLY holding hands on the red carpet. Oh, and he captioned it "me and my baby showing the world how it's done!"
We also saw a few snaps from inside the show and they look like they're either REALLY good friends or really in a relationship. Twitter seems to think the latter. What do you guys think?
