AceShowbiz - Newly-single Timothee Chalamet has added fuel to gay rumors. A man on Tik Tok revealed that he asked the "Call Me by Your Name" actor for a virtual date on Instagram and the star replied by requesting to follow the man's private social media.
The man named Mark Murphy accepted Timothee's request. He said he slid into the actor's DMs after googling and finding out he's single following Lily-Rose Depp split. "Now I don't know what to do?!" the man exclaimed on his Tik Tok video.
Timothee Chalamet, 24, has never publicly commented on his sexuality. He's quite secretive about his love life. In a 2018 interview, he wouldn't even divulge about his first-ever date. "Date is very much a scary word, because then that context has been established," he said. "You can always see people on early date behavior."
He sparked gay rumors after starring in the Oscar-winning movie "Call Me by Your Name" with Armie Hammer. The "Beautiful Boy" star, who once aspired to be a rapper, was linked to Kid Cudi due to their bromance.
Timothee and Cudi often hang out together. They celebrated each other's birthdays and Cudi even brought Timothee on stage during shows. In 2019, the actor opened Cudi's show with a poem. "We live in a world where it's more okay to follow than to lead. In this world being a leader is trouble for the system we are all accustomed to," he recited Common's introduction to Cudi's 2009 album "Man on the Moon: The End of Day".
Timothee dated Lily-Rose, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis' daughter, after they were tapped for Netflix movie "The King", in which he played King Henry V and she portrayed his wife Catherine. They split after more than a year of relationship.
Before dating Lily-Rose, Timothee was linked to Lourdes Leon, Madonna's daughter. They met at LaGuardia High School in New York City.
