Both the 30-year-old rapper and the 47-year-old pop star shared a cuddly photo on Instagram early Wednesday morning.

“They seem to really like and respect each other, but it’s early,” says the source. “Where it goes, we shall see. Friends of them both are hoping it becomes something, but it’s too early to say more than that.”
