Pia Toscano may be trying to downplay her relationship with Mark Ballas, continuing to claim the duo are “just friends.” But judging by their interaction at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango extravaganza this weekend, romance between the American Idol alum and Dancing With the Stars pro is certainly heating up! Although Pia told OK! just last week that she and Mark were only friends, they were very cozy at Wango Tango.
“They kissed openly in the gift lounge, but it almost seemed as if they were trying to be discreet,” an onlooker tells OK! exclusively. “He whispered to her, ‘I missed you, babe!’ ”
Pia and Mark walked the entire lounge together, certainly looking like an official couple.
“They were being [touchy-feely] and cute,” our source adds. “It seemed like they hadn’t seen each other for a few days and really missed being together.”Pia and Mark even posed for a picture together, after Pia was gifted a ring, with the rock on her left hand.”
Pia and her fellow Idol castoff Casey Abrams surprised the crowd at the concert with a secret performance in the middle of the evening’s star-studded lineup.
