Troye Sivan ‘SPLITS’ from American model boyfriend Jacob Bixenman – after the couple were ‘forced apart due to coronavirus self-isolation’

Troye Sivan and his American model boyfriend Jacob Bixenman have reportedly called time on their relationship after four years together. 

According to The Daily Telegraph, music sources have confirmed the pair quietly split in recent months after Troye, 25, flew from the US to Perth, Australia to self-isolate with his family amid the COVID-19 pandemic.   

Jacob, 26, has remained in his Los Angeles hometown, the publication alleges.

The couple, who went public with their romance in August 2018, have been conspicuously been absent from each other’s social media feeds since November last year.   

Tellingly, Troye and Jacob also failed to make mention of each other via Instagram in February, on what would have been their four-year anniversary. 

The singer’s new single Easy also suggests recent heartbreak thanks to lyrics including ‘Please don’t leave me’ and ‘Now I’m vulnerable, so sad and alone’.

Back in 2018, the My My My hitmaker praised Jacob for having a ‘magnetic energy’.  

Speaking in an interview with Attitude magazine, Troye said: ‘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 continued.

Troye went onto call the IMG model his ‘best friend’.

‘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,’ he said.   

The couple currently still follow each other on Instagram.  

Daily Mail Australia has reached out for comment.
