Rumours swirl that Perth popstar Troye Sivan has split from model beau Jacob Bixenman

Could one of the great millennial romances be over? Rumours are swirling that local-boy-turned-pop- sensation Troye Sivan has split from his international modelling superstar beau Jacob Bixenman after four years together.

Music sources say the pair quietly parted ways in the past few months while Sivan was seeing out his COVID-19 isolation period in Australia.

Bixenman, meanwhile, has remained in his hometown of Los Angeles.

The pair have been virtually absent from each other’s Instagram feeds. The last combined post with them pictured together dates way back to November last year.

And, in a sure sign that things may be rocky, both have stopped commenting on each other’s posts.

But perhaps the biggest and most obvious clue is in the music.

Sivan is set to release a new album, Dream, next month — and it is heavily weighted with break-up angst.

The first single, Easy, details a tumultuous relationship, featuring the lines: “He made it easy, please, don’t leave me.”

The previous single, Take Yourself Home, is about Sivan returning to Australia last year after an undisclosed incident in his adopted hometown of LA.

“Talk to me, there’s nothing that can’t be fixed with some honesty,” he sings, adding: “And how we got this dark is just beyond to me”.

Sivan and Bixenman became the ultimate gay “it-couple” when they went public with their relationship in August 2018, and are regular paparazzi fodder around LA, where they share a house.

Representatives for Sivan’s label EMI declined to comment on rumours of a split.
