Jack Antonoff and Lorde fans are in a major tizzy after photos of the pair hugging and seemingly cuddling appeared online this week.

The photos, which were published by The Daily Mail, feature the frequent collaborators embracing in Lorde's hometown of Auckland, New Zealand.

Fans of the singers—who have been friends and have worked together for years, including on Lorde's most recent album, Melodrama—are now convinced that the two are in a romantic relationship.

The friends have yet to confirm or deny their rumored relationship status.

Back in January, however, Antonoff, who dated Girls star Lena Dunham for five years before the two broke up at the start of 2018, slammed rumors that he and Lorde were an item.

On Twitter, he denied the reported relationship, writing, "Normally I would never address rumors but I resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative [sic] gossip. Those relationships are deeply important and sacred. With that said, I'm not seeing anyone. lol."
