Troye Sivan jokes he ‘looks good’ as nearly-nude photo leaks

By Will Stroude

Whoops. After Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom’s full-frontal exploits, it looks like Troye Sivan is the latest star to fall foul of 2016’s growing trend for nude picture leaks.

After a private snap showing the Aussie pop star naked – but with his modesty tastefully protected – began circulating online yesterday (September 15), Troye took to Twitter to confirm it was real, but asking fans not to re-share it.

Sharing a screenshot of a text conversation with members of his team in which he joked he “looks good” in the snap, the 21-year-old wrote: “when ur almost nudes leak and ur talking to management”.

His management responds reassuring him he looks “fire” in the picture, and to “b proud [sic]”

Despite the praise, Troye tweeted again saying that the situation “sucks”, and asking fans not to publicise the image.

“Oi jokes aside, this sucks. Nothin I can do now but please don’t share anything you think I wouldn’t want the world to see”, the WILD singer wrote.

Responding to a fan who asked if he was okay in the wake of the leak, he replied: “I’m kinda not!!!! But I’m dealin.

“What can you do”, he added.

Frankly Troye, we have no idea why you wouldn’t want the world to see more of you. But if you insist, we suppose…

Meanwhile, Sivan recently donned slightly more clothing for a delightfully high fashion shoot with V magazine – check it out here.
