The Chrissy Teigen cyber-bullying fallout continues. The model, influencer and businesswoman reportedly was dropped from promoting her own cleaning brand.
Chrissy Teigen and Kris Jenner co-founded the cleaning brand, Safely. It hit the shelves early last month. However, because of a decrease in sales, Teigen no longer is appearing in the marketing campaign for the product. That’s according to The Sun.
Chrissy Teigen also took a break from social media for four weeks. But she was back, Saturday. Singer John Legend, her husband, posted a photo on his Instagram account featuring Teigen, their daughter, Luna and Teigen’s mother.
Teigen’s problems started last month when Courtney Stodden revealed old tweets Teigen sent the former model in 2011. Stodden, who has since come out as non-binary, was 16 at the time. In 2011, Stodden married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. The marriage drew heavy criticism. Stodden appeared in a number of reality shows. The couple divorced in 2018.
Stodden revealed to TMZ screenshots of several tweets and direct messages that Teigen sent. They ranged from “I hate you” to “go. to sleep. forever.” One also said “My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby.”
Chrissy Teigen Apologized, But Scandal Continued to Unfold
Chrissy Teigen apologized, writing:
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. (And) I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.
“I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
Stodden answered Chrissy Teigen, writing “I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private.”
Teigen Tweets Linked to Two More Stars
There also were reports that Teigen also cyber-bullied actress Lindsey Lohan and Teen Mom reality star Farrah Abraham.
Chrissy Teigen dropped out of the Netflix comedy Never Have I Ever. And she lost a deal for a cookware line with Bloomingdale’s. The deal already was negotiated, but wasn’t official when Bloomingdale’s dropped plans to work with her.
Macy’s shelved the Cravings cookware line. Target dropped it as well. A source told Page Six that customers were leaving critical messages in the reviews for the Cravings line. There is a possibility the line could return to Macy’s.
Chrissy Teigen was promoting the line on her own social media accounts. But she’s gone silent on her own accounts.
