There is a rumor that Timothée Chalamet spread chlamydia across the NYU campus.

In the fall of 2015, the actor was reportedly enrolled at the prestigious New York University. Though he allegedly left in the spring the following year, Timothee's legacy at the campus apparently lived on. In 2018, a rumor started to spread that the young actor had a sexually transmitted disease.

"Mutual friend got chlamydia from Timothee Chalamet, pass it on," a person tweeted at the time.

Fans tried to cancel Timothée Chalamet.

As the world continues to practice social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems gossip is slow ... so people are inventing their own rumors and attempting to spread it across Twitter and TikTok.

Recently, an old clip of Timothee surfaced, which shows the actor reciting a line from a John Patrick Shanley play. During the table read, he says a homophobic slur, which was taken out of context.

The anti-gay slur was said because it is a line in the play Tennessee

And, fans have not stopped there. The hashtag #TimothéeChalametIsOverParty went viral after old photos of the actor kissing Selena Gomez resurfaced on TikTok. The pics were from the Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York. So, the two are not dating nor are they in a relationship; they were filming a movie together. 

While we get the Timothée hype, the rumors about his personal life should cease.
