Drake gushed endlessly for Rihanna while presenting her the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 28). However, when he try to his land a kiss on RiRi, he got mercilessly curved, which prompted Twitter to tease Drizzy for neck nuzzling skills.

But if you think Drake was friend-zoned by Rihanna, guess again. After the VMAs, the couple reportedly went out for drinks and danced the night away at Up&Down nightclub in New York. An insider told E! News that the couple "didn't leave each other's side" and "Drake didn't let Rihanna out of his sight."

The 6 God even posted a photo on his Instagram account giving Rihanna a kiss on the cheek.

"This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us!" reads the caption. "You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you!"

So the photo either confirms they are dating for real, or if Drake is just trolling us all. Judging by the picture above, they're more than just friends.

Nevertheless, both Drake and Rihanna were big winners at the VMAs, and possibly winning in the game of love.
