Weeks After Breakup with Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia Posts Picture Kissing Co-Star
Wow, can you believe it? For the first time since 2011, Avan Jogia will NOT be ringing in Valentine’s Day with Zoey Deutch. The beautiful couple of five years called it quits roughly five months ago (though, no one knew about it until this past January), and they’ve been keeping a low dating profile ever since… but that doesn’t mean the Nickelodeon actor is going to leave fans hanging this V-Day.
The 25-year-old actor recently posted a series of pictures on Instagram that are leaving Victorious fans in a state of “WTF?!” Mostly because of this bad boy:
The snapshot of himself kissing his co-star, Victoria Justice, while laying on other co-star Liz Gillies has been making its rounds on the Internet as the ultimate third-wheel meme:

Clearly, it got around to the Nick alums, and they’re all sorts of confused, especially because of VJ’s hand placement:
Fans are still freaking the eff out over the ‘gram. “Why is tori kissing him instead of jade, why is it right in front of her, why is her hand on his d*ck what episode is this so many questions,” Twitter user TaylorSxt1 asked. Thankfully, another fan may have all the answers:

So much for being “just friends,” huh?
You can now add this moment to the list of times a Victorious actor kissed a co-star:
When Victoria Justice dated Ryan Rottman for 2 years.
Though he's nearly 9 years her senior — VJ was a freshly-minted 18-year-old and he was about to turn 27 when they first started dating — the two hit it off right away after he appeared on the "Beggin' on Your Knees" episode of Victorious, on which his character, Ryder, was only using Vic's character, Tori, to get a good grade on a singing assignment.
The two dated from February 2011 to August 2013.
