Simone Biles’ accused murderer brother has been behind bars for nearly a month — and his Olympic gold medalist sister hasn't bailed him out, can exclusively reveal.

Tevin Biles-Thomas — who pled not guilty on September 13 in the alleged murder of three people — was issued a bond of $1 million by an Ohio judge.

But according to a clerk for the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office, the 24-year-old's "bond has not been paid as of yet."

He remains at the Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland.

Biles, who is worth about $4 million following her successful career as an Olympic gymnast, revealed she was heartbroken by the news her brother was allegedly responsible for the New Year's Eve shooting spree that left three people dead.

"My heart aches for everyone involved, especially for the victims and their families," she wrote four days after her sibling was taken into police custody. "There is nothing that I can say that will heal anyone’s pain, but I do want to express my sincere condolences to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy."

She added, "I ask everyone to please respect my family’s privacy as we deal with our pain. XO."

As previously reported, Biles-Thomas was arrested on August 29 in Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The victims killed in the shooting were Devaughn Gibson, 23, DelVaunte Johnson, 19, and Toshon Banks, 21. Two others were wounded.

Johnson’s mother, Brandie Johnson, wore a black T-shirt with a photograph of her and her son at prom in 2017, emblazoned with the words, “my baby’s keeper.”

“I don’t agree with a million dollars bond, not for the murder of three people," Johnson said after the hearing.

“The investigators within the Cleveland Police Homicide Unit remained committed to securing an arrest in this tragic case,” said Cleveland Division of Police Chief Calvin Williams in a statement. “We appreciate our partnership with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office and are confident that their efforts will bring justice for the families affected by this terrible incident.”
