Tom Daley took picture of Troye Sivan going to the toilet at the Met Gala on Rihanna's instruction

The snap of Troye using a urinal in a dress was apparently orchestrated by the 'Work' singer.

Troye Sivan has offered an insight into the rock and roll world of the Met Gala with his latest Instagram post.

Yesterday, the 'Youth' singer - who wore a dress to Monday's high-profile event - posted a photograph of himself "weeing" at a urinal taken by none other than Olympian Tom Daley.

Even more surreal, music icon Rihanna apparently orchestrated the photograph. (What next? Anna Wintour did the lighting?!)

"True story"

In a caption, 26-year-old Troye explained: "@badgalriri told @tomdaley to take this pic of me weeing."

The more you know.

Commenting on the post, diver Tom simply said: "True story."

The Gala, formally the Costume Institute Gala, is a yearly fundraising effort to benefit New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute - and attended by the world's glitterati. While we're used to seeing red carpet arrival pictures and a couple of inside selfies, we seldom see what really goes on behind closed doors...

Also, a note on the trio being in the bogs together - either the Met has gender-neutral toilets or 'Work' singer Rihanna just DGAF about being in the gents! We're into it, either way.

The photo follows a series of Troye getting ready for the party the day before, rocking a jockstrap and a Cartier necklace. Because why not?

it also follows the former Attitude cover star releasing his latest single 'Angel Baby' - a track the star has described as a "surprise gushy juicy doting adoring power b^tt^m gay ballad." We're enjoying this latest era, Troye!
