When Bella Thorne likes someone, she doesn't keep it a secret for very long. The Famous In Love actress literally does whatever she wants, which is pretty freaking cool when you live in a world like Hollywood. So many relationships are kept hush hush that it's kind of refreshing to see Bella with this carefree attitude about it all. And to be honest, because she rarely hides things, it tones down the rumors.

Over the weekend, fans were treated to Bella putting out some very racy snaps featuring blackbear. So, who is blackbear? Well, he's an American recording artist specializing in hip hop. He's also a songwriter and record producer who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry including Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Machine Gun Kelly and Mike Posner. Now, he's hanging with Bella and this isn't the first time they have been caught all over each other.

The paparazzi snapped photos of Bella and blackbear leaving one of his shows in New York City a few weeks ago. They were walking with their arms linked looking super happy. Now, they are showing off a bit more PDA. Well, actually, a lot more PDA to be exact. Bella posted a photo on her Instagram story with both of their tongues almost touching and we're just sitting here unable to stop staring at the madness. Not only that, but she's just wearing a bra. While we shouldn't be totally surprised, we can't help but wonder if this really is just a friendship or someone Bella actually has her eye on.

It's not totally wrong of us to think that this is Bella's new man. In a recent interview, she said, "I have my eye on [someone]. I'm sure you'll figure it out soon enough." And she was sure to refute the claim that it was the reality star bad boy Scott Disick. Bella continued, "Oh goodness. No, it's not Scott Disick…I have absolutely nothing to say…We're friends. Deal with it. People can be friends, it's a thing. It actually happens, so get over it, guys."

So, is it blackbear? She DID say we would find out soon enough and this all seems like a clue to us. She posted a photo with blackbear on her Instagram – tongue out bra on, once again – and captioned the shot, "Bsquared ???."

Well, they sure do look like they are definitely into each other. Bella is usually a pretty hands-on type of girl when it comes to the guys in her life. I mean, who could forget that super sexy photo she posted with Tyler Posey in the pool? She was legit on top of him on a float, and we cannot unsee or forget about it. While these few photos are actually tame compared to what she shared with Tyler, it's obvious that she got a new friend in blackbear – to say the least.

Here's to hoping Bella shuts down this rumor quickly so we can move on and really try to figure out who has caught her heart, or until she gives in and publicly announces they have a thing for each other. Either way, this Disney Channel alum is on her own time. She'll do what she wants when she wants. For that, we must say, you go girl!
