My sibling kittens that have been raised together are now estranged. Is this normal?

I rescued what I thought was a tiny 4-week-old feral kitten until I reached down and found an even tinier kitten, with one eye still shut, curled up with him. They have been inseparable house cats for the past 3 years until now.
The Male cat (the one I thought I was saving) has decided that the only time he even acknowledges his sister (the one curled up with her brother) is to chase her and jump on her to run her away from us or something he wants.
She is clinging to us and wandering around crying in a way that we would expect if we had physically lost him. Is this normal for the Male to do everything with her, including crying if he got separated from her, and now just ignore her?
