  • Linda Evangelista, 58, says she hasn't been seeing anyone after her CoolSculpting procedure in 2016.

  • "Not interested. I don't want to sleep with anybody anymore," she told The Sunday Times.

  • She previously said the procedure left her "brutally disfigured" and "permanently deformed."

Linda Evangelista says she hasn't been dating after undergoing what she said was a botched cosmetic procedure.

"Not interested," the 58-year-old told The Sunday Times about her dating life.

"I don't want to sleep with anybody anymore. I don't want to hear somebody breathing," Evangelista continued.

Evangelista told the publication that the last time she dated anyone was "definitely before the Cool Sculpting" procedure she underwent in 2016.

In September 2021, Evangelista said in an Instagram post that she was suing CoolSculpting's parent company, Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc., alleging that their fat reduction procedure left her "brutally disfigured."

"It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries," she wrote in her post.

In another Instagram post in July 2022, Evangelista said she'd settled with Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc.

Her post didn't provide details on the size of the settlement, though she initially sought $50 million in damages from the company.

The supermodel was married to former Elite Model Management executive Gérald Marie from 1987 to 1993. She alleged in an AppleTV+ documentary, "The Super Models," released in September that her relationship with Marie was "abusive."

She also has a 17-year-old son with François-Henri Pinault, a French billionaire and luxury goods mogul. Pinault is married to actor Salma Hayek.

Representatives for Evangelista and CoolSculpting did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider sent outside regular business hours.
