Lauv has struggled with mental health issues, but his girlfriend, Sophie, has been there for him, encouraging and inspiring him at every turn.

The pair first met for the collaboration of their song There's No Way and with the release of that song, the rumors of their romantic relationship started going around in October 2018. 

Lauv and Julia began going out around that time, and Lauv confirmed their relationship through a YouTube video.  The singer said he and Julia remained friends for a few months before they started dating each other.

However, the couple soon fell out of love and broke up in January 2019. Later, Julie posted ‘No more dating narcissists’ on her Instagram story, which was speculated to be directed toward Lauv. She went on to tell what a narcissist does, which fueled people to attack Lauv on social media. 

After seeing the backslash and the situation getting out of hand, Julia tweeted that both of them were getting attacked online after their breakup. She further added that she still loves and supports him as a friend.

But because of her small mistake, Lauv had to suffer a lot. He also had to deal with questions regarding his sexuality.

Lauv’s Sexuality

Following the breakup with his ex-girlfriend, Julie, Lauv was then rumored to be gay because he is a supporter of the LGBT+ community.

But the speculation began after he got linked with another singer Troye Sivan in January 2019. They collaborated on the song I’m So Tired. 

The question regarding his sexuality started when Troy posted a photo of them together and referred to Lauv as his boyfriend. This created quite a stir, but no further information regarding their relationship was released until people found out about Troye dating Jacob Bixenman. But this also didn’t clear Lauv’s name.

In an interview with Gay Times Magazine, Lauv mentioned that Troye was just his close friend who helped him overcome his struggle with depression and OCD. 

Despite his greatest efforts to clarify any misunderstandings about his sexuality, he was still referred to as gay. After a lengthy struggle, he gave up explaining to the public and concentrated only on himself.
