Let's just say this isn't the first time Lele Pons was rumored to be dating fellow YouTuber Juanpa Zurita. The couple kissed at the 2017 MTV Millennial Awards back in June 2017, and now their romantic chemistry is showing up in full force the lyric video for Anitta and J Balvin's "Downtown." Let's break down the tale of their rumored romance.
The pair actually was romantically together briefly a while ago and then broke things off. Then they were speculated to have gotten back together, but nothing ever seemed to come of it — until they kissed each other on stage in front of a live audience. And no, we're not talking about a peck on the cheek or a smooch you'd only give a friend. This was a full-fledged kiss and we can't get over it.
The whole thing went down at the 2017 MTV Millennial Awards in Mexico City. Lele was co-hosting the gig with Juanpa. Apparently, the duo was set to kiss behind a screen, only revealing their silhouettes and completely hiding their true identities. However, things didn't go according to plan and the lights were on for the kiss. And we're glad they were!
Lele posted a photo on Instagram with the caption, "About last night 💃🕺🏻..."
Oh, baby! This kiss was clearly super steamy and fans are loving the public display of affection. Of course, this isn't definite confirmation that the two are back together. However, it was a clear way to make headlines and get people talking. No one is really sure whether or not they are an official couple, but they've been playing it up ever since.
Not only did Lele share a photo of the kiss with Juanpa, she also posted a cute selfie of the pair backstage. She captioned the shot, "One of the best experiences of my life🇲🇽😜 @mtvmiaw."
Whether this was one of the most memorable nights of Lele's life because she hosted the show or because Juanpa was by her side, we may never know. A couple things are for sure, Lele and Juanpa have amazing chemistry and she was incredibly grateful for this opportunity.
When it was announced that Lele would co-host the show with Juanpa she put out a statement letting the world know just how excited she was. She said, "For me, it’s an enormous honor to be able to host the MTV MIAW Awards 2017. I grew up watching MTV and to now be able to be part of a show where they award and celebrate the best and most successful talent of our generation is truly exciting! I’m counting down the days until I get to meet with my fans across Mexico and Latin America!"
Aww! We can't help but applaud Lele for her hosting performance. She gave everyone something to talk about. The only thing left to do is keep an eye out for her and Juan and the rekindling of their relationship. They have been spending more and more time together on social media. Of course, now with that kiss in the back of everyone's minds, we're going to be taking their hangouts much more seriously! But for the record, Lele and Juanpa have our vote as the current cutest couple on YouTube. And when you see them in a music video together? They're seriously on fire.
