Troye Sivan marked three years with boyfriend Jacob Bixenman on Sunday (10 February).
‘Luckiest boy alive. Love you lots’ the singer and gay heartthrob wrote on Twitter.
Sivan’s tweet shuts down rumors of a breakup with Bixenman circulating since Sivan referred to artist Lauv as his ‘new bf’.
The Bloom singer took to social media on January to announce a new song collaboration with American singer, songwriter and record producer, Ari Staprans Leff aka Lauv .
Sivan wrote in captions across social media: ‘catch me and my new bf [Lauv] performing our new SMASH “i’m so tired” on [Jimmy Kimmel] feb 6th.’
Sivan then quote-tweeted a tweet that said: ‘Troye Sivan reveals that he has a new boyfriend and is nothing more and nothing less than the talented Lauv. Both recently launched a single called “I’m So tired”. Promotion?’
Twenty four-year-old Lauv is most known for single I Like Me Better. He has not previously publicly come out as gay.
He took to Instagram last month to record a video of him talking about Sivan, where he mentions him as his ‘friend’.
People speculated whether this meant he and Jacob had split, or whether it was just a publicity stunt. Of course, it’s a possibility Troye was dating both guys. ‘Best friend’
Troye Sivan and Jacob Bixenman started dating in 2016 and reportedly live together.
But Sivan recently said: ‘It’s kind of like having your best friend around all the time, which is really nice. I think LA can get lonely and you sort of have to build a life for yourself.’
Speaking about their relationship, Jacob told Gay Times: ‘We’re both people who share ourselves online but need privacy and really value close personal relationships so balancing that line of how much to give away can be interesting.’
‘Otherwise our relationship is really easy,’ he added.
