Tom Daley, Rihanna and Troye Sivan at the Met Gala

Rihanna apparently made Tom Daley take a picture of Troye Sivan peeing at a urinal at the Met Gala – and no, somehow this story isn’t made up.

The Met Gala is, of course, one of the biggest celebrity events in the calendar, with some of the most famous faces in the world descending on the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for a lucrative fundraiser.

The event generally generates headlines for days, with those who follow celebrity culture desperate to know who was there, what they were wearing, and who they rubbed shoulders with.

Well, Troye Sivan, Tom Daley and Rihanna all had a great time rubbing shoulders at the Met Gala, if their bizarre social media posts are to be believed.

The sorry affair all started when Sivan rocked up to the Met Gala wearing a slinky black dress with some fabulous – and very tall – platform heels.

British Olympic diver Tom Daley was also there, and he and Sivan apparently hit it off. After the event, Sivan posted a picture on Twitter of himself hiking his dress up at a urinal to have a wee while he holds his handbag in his other hand.

“Rihanna told Tom Daley to take this pic of me weeing,” Sivan captioned the post.

Tom Daley confirmed that Rihanna indeed made him photograph Troye Sivan weeing

You would be forgiven for thinking he was joking – but no, Tom Daley rushed forward to confirm the sad news that the story was, in fact, completely true.

Daley shared a screenshot of Sivan’s post no his Instagram stories, simply adding: “True story…”

Meanwhile, Rihanna hasn’t commented on the exchange because – let’s be honest – we all know that she’s way too cool and too busy for pleasantries.

The unusual incident occurred at an action packed Met Gala. Celebrities were apparently desperate to show off their wildest looks for the event, which was postponed from its usual May outing to September due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2021 Met Gala saw some of the biggest names on the planet turn up to show off their most spectacular looks – and they didn’t disappoint.

Some of the most famous queer celebrities on the planet turned up to the event, including Lil Nas X, Elliot Page, MJ Rodriguez and many others.

Lil Nas X wowed with three separate outfits, while Elliot Page wore a simple suit that featured a subtle nod to Oscar Wilde.
