Troye Sivan's Brother Tyde Comes Out As...

Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 2 MIN.

We all know that out singer Troye Sivan is gay – but what about brother Tyde, who took to social media recently to playfully boast about helping himself to Troye's clothes while he's on the road, triggering excited speculation about where Tyde falls on the rainbow continuum?

"Troye, I love you, but the best part about you going away is that... I get a new wardrobe!" Tyde narrated in the original post, before diving into Troye's closet and putting on an impromptu fashion show in which he remained shirtless most of the time.

But while he was pulling clothes out of Troye's closet was Tyde also considering pulling himself out of the closet?

He may have done just that... sort of. Reaction to the original post led Tyde to revisit the video.

"This tweet going viral and everyone in the comments asking if I'm [bisexual]," Tyde captioned the retweet, using a "painting toenails" emoticon to indicate "bisexual."

Needless to say, that teasing post just added fuel to the fire.

"Are you?" more than one fan demanded.

"You acknowledging the questions and not answering is hilarious!" another person commented. "The plot thickens".

"Is he gay or is he just australian..." another wisecracked.

In a subsequent post, Tyde seemed to answer the question for once and all... except, he really didn't. He gave a reenactment of a post by Charli XCX in which she had read a comment asking, "Are you bi? You give me bi vibes." Charli XCX answered, "I'm actually not bi... I'm really happy I'm giving you bi vibes, 'cause that's cool!"

Tyde jokingly performed his version of Charli XCX's post word for word.

Of course, the question remains: How much joke was in that post? Has Tyde Sivan come out as "not bi," as straight, or just as someone with a sense of humor about the subject?
