We were already convinced Ian Somerhalder (Damon) and Nina Dobrev (Elena) are a legit couple, despite their many attempts to convince us they’re “just friends.”

After all, do “just friends” kiss on the mouth for 2–4 seconds? Lainey Gossip reports that good pals Ian and Nina did just that behind-the-scenes at the MuchMusic Awards.

After Lainey finished an interview with Nina, the 22-year-old Bulgarian beauty immediately wanted to know where Ian was. Upon seeing him, “she did a little hop, almost like a skip, and floated towards him and he put his arms around her, and they kissed.”

While Lainey says “it wasn’t like a tongue situation or anything,” there was definite “mouth to mouth” action for a few solid seconds, and “there was nothing ‘just friendly’ about it.”

We must say, Lainey seems pretty reliable, and she made believers out of us last Valentine’s Day. What more confirmation do we need that these two are in luvre?
