Sarah Barthel is an American singer-songwriter who is best known as the multi-instrumentalists and vocalists of the electro-rock duo, Phantogram. She was previously in a relationship with Olympic gold medalist Shaun White.
Barthel is currently 38 years old. She was born on February 17, 1983, in Greenwich, New York, United States, to parents Bruce Barthel and Claire Demarest. Barthel studied visual arts at Champlain College, Vermont.
Talking about her height and weight, Sarah is cited to be 5 ft and 6 in (1.67m) tall and weighs 63 kg (139 lbs). She had an older sister, Rebecca Claire Barthel, who was born on January 7, 1982, in Denver, Colorado.
Both Barthel sisters grew up in Greenwich; Rebecca took an interest in the fashion industry while Sarah's passion lay in the music industry. Her older sister began working for a clothing designer in Miami before creating her own fashion blog, Fabulous Junk.
Rebecca passed away from an apparent suicide at age 34 at her home in Los Angeles, California, on January 16, 2016. Sarah was in the middle of recording Phantogram’s third album when she found out that her older sister had died of suicide.
The 38-year-old stated that her sister suffered from depression and anxiety “her entire life,” resorted to alcohol, and had “attempted suicide a couple of times.”
“I am growing through this process with the help of therapy, but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t blame myself, and the other people in her life, too. It’s the heaviest feeling to ever feel. Suicide is so hard to understand,” she said in an interview with American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Barthel has an estimated net worth of $3 million. She has accumulated her wealth from her flourishing career as a singer. The 38-year-old formed the rock band Phantogram along with her pre-school friend Josh Carter in 2007.
They released their debut studio album titled Eyelid Movies in 2009, which peaked at number 7 on the US Heatseekers chart and number 38 on the US Independent Albums chart.
Moreover, the duo's 2014 album Voices reached number 11 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 3 on the US Alternative Albums chart. Their third studio album, titled Three, became the highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 with 23,000 album sales. It also debuted at number 5 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.
Barthel started dating Shaun White, a professional snowboarder, in 2013. They first met backstage at SNL "and became friends, and then over time it kind of turned into something,” as White puts it.
Their friendship blossomed into love in 2014 when White ended up becoming a savior to distressed Barthel and Cartel, who had rented a “really terrible” home “way out in East L.A.”
“I was like, ‘I got a house, there’s a house, you got a car, just take it, I’m training for the Olympics, I won’t be home. So her and her bandmate and some others came and stayed at my place and that’s kind of how things got going,” White told People.
Sarah and Shaun remained together for six years before splitting in late 2019. After ending his relationship with Barthel, White sparked dating rumors with actress Nina Dobrev in February 2020 after both shared similar pics from their South African safari.
Just a month after this, the two were snapped together, enjoying a bike ride in Malibu. Nina and Shaun confirmed their relationship in May 2020. As for Barthel, she is yet to reveal her current relationship status.
