AceShowbiz - Sarah Talabi has opened up about how people's reactions to rumors claiming she and Timothee Chalamet are an item affected her mental health. The Victoria's Secret model has candidly shared that she became depressed following the wild online gossip.
"My mental health has been at an all-time low lately. The incessant hate and death threats has [sic] caused me to have panic attacks and bouts of depression," the 22-year-old beauty told E! News in an article published on Tuesday, April 26. "I am seeking therapy now, I just don't understand how people can be so cruel about something that has zero effect on their life."
Sarah said she's been "uncomfortable" with leaving her home amid the dating speculations. "Everyone is hounding me to answer the question of whether I'm dating Timothee or not," the "Is Climate Change the Pandemic that Will End Humanity?" co-author said.
"I will answer that question when politicians have answered my question of why they are ignoring the climate change crisis to the point of criminal negligence," Sarah continued. "I think that's a fair trade."
Sarah added, "If only people kept this energy for climate change reform." The social media influencer went on to say, "I hope they realize that at the rate global warming is going, the earth will cease to exist as we know it in just a few generations."
The dating speculations started swirling around Sarah and Timothee after they were spotted together during the Coachella livestream while Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd performed. An eyewitness then spilled to Instagram gossip account Deuxmoi that the pair looked cozy, even dancing and kissing, in the crowd.
When asked about the rumors, Sarah refused to confirm or deny the speculations. "Everyone is asking me if I was kissing Timothee Chalamet at Coachella, and that is a good question. But a great question would be asking our world leaders why the Earth is now losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice each year due to global warming and why climate crisis reform has been completely ineffective," she coyly said.
However, Sarah admitted that she was with the "Call Me by Your Name" actor at the music event. "I was at Coachella this weekend, as well as the Revolve Festival, and a few other private parties," she shared, "That was me in the photos. My twin sister, Leah Talabi, was there, too." She went on to stress, "We were all just hanging out and vibing with the music. It was the greatest night of my life."
