Chrissy Teigen has lost another professional partner after allegations of cyberbullying of personality Courtney Stodden continue to gain attention.
Stodden controversially married actor Doug Hutchinson in 2011, when they were just 16-years-old. Shortly after, Teigen allegedly told Stodden to “kill herself” along with other words.
A decade later and now divorced from Hutchinson, Stodden came forward with the allegations and images from the exchange. In the days since their recent interview, sponsors, partners and endorsers have dropped Chrissy Teigen.
The latest in the fallout is Bloomingdale’s, a luxury department store chain. It should come as no surprise, however, because Bloomingdale’s is owned by the same company as Macy’s, who cut ties with Teigen earlier this week.
Page Six reported that the chain was set to renew their relationship with the former model, but the recent news has caused them to back out.
The insider at Page Six said, “They pretty much had it together … but had to cancel it.”
According to the Daily Beast’s interview with Stodden, Chrissy Teigen messaged them privately as well as publicly tweeted at them.
“She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take a dirt nap,” Stodden said. “But would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”
Target Also Dropped Chrissy Teigen
As mentioned, megastore chain Target was thought to have cut ties with the ex-model. Teigen had a cookware line with the brand, which will no longer be released.
However, the brand claimed that wasn’t due to recent developments. Instead, the decision was made back in December of 2020.
“We made the mutual decision in December to no longer carry the cookware line, given our continued focus on brands we develop, and that can only be found at Target,” a representative said.
After the interview came to light, Teigen quickly apologized on social media. However, it doesn’t appear as if that’s doing all that much for her professional relationships.
“I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be,” she wrote. “I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that … is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
That my be, in part, due to the fact that Stodden’s accepting of the apology came with clarification.
“I accept her apology and forgive her,” Stodden said. “But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private.”
