Troye Sivan has sparked speculation he and long-time model boyfriend Jacob Bixenman have called it quits.
Talking to Instagram on Saturday, the 23 year-old Bloom singer posted an image of himself shared an embrace with musician Ari Staprans Leff, better known as Lauv.
Wearing a striped sweater, jeans and dark boots, Troye proudly linked his arms with the blue-haired singer while resting his head on Lauv's shoulder.

Fans immediately flooded the post with comments of concern, asking, 'are you serious?' and 'what happened with Jacob?'
But based on the caption accompanying the photo, it appears the Boy Erased star was simply teasing the pair's new single together.
'(sic) Catch me and my new bf @lauvsongs performing our new SMASH 'i'm so tired' on @jimmykimmellive feb 6th,' he wrote.
Lauv, 24 appeared to be in on the joke also as he shared an image of the friends together in a close embrace, while also pushing their new single.
The My My My hitmaker and his model beau have been an item since 2016.
And last August, Troy gushed about Jacob, saying he possessed a 'magnetic energy' in an interview with Attitude magazine.
'I think he's got like a kind of energy about him, a magnetic sort of energy. I think people can't help but love him. He's just got one of those personalities that draws people in,' he said.
Troye went onto call the IMG model his 'best friend.'
He added: '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.'
