And they're blowing up your feed with pics to prove it.

Justin Bieber and model Sofia Richie are doing nothing to quiet their current romance rumors. ET Online (opens in new tab) reports that within hours of touching down in Japan, where Bieber is performing for his Purpose World Tour, the rumored couple started posting pictures of each other on social media.

"Posting pictures" might actually be an understatement. "Blowing up Instagram" might be a more accurate description. In the last 24 hours, they've posted no fewer than 12 rumor-fueling pictures to Instagram.

Behold, young (rumored) love:

Richie posted this picture, presumably taken by Bieber, of herself wearing a hoodie emblazoned with his face.

Then she posted a picture of him wearing a delightfully silly hat.

Finally, she posted a couple of very cute pictures of them together.

Bieber posted even more pictures documenting their trip, starting with this dark, blurry black and white pic.

There was also this picture of them in a car together.

And a series of six pictures of them in a different car (or possibly the same car at a different time). Here's a small sampling, but check out Bieber's Instagram (opens in new tab) for the complete set.

Not all of Bieber's fans are supportive of the possible romance though. In fact, some have been so negative that Bieber threatened to make his Instagram private if the mean comments didn't stop.

"I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," he captioned (opens in new tab) the most recent photo of him and Richie on Instagram. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."

Jelena shippers may not like it, but Bieber and Richie seem to be having a genuinely great time together and we can get behind that, no matter what their relationship status is.
