Chrissy Teigen is speaking out on her current well-being. The TV personality has been at the center of a cyberbullying controversy for months.

According to TMZ, Teigen is “doing good” and has spent her time recently “diamond painting” amid the scandal. Reporters from the outlet spoke to her outside of her home in Hollywood. Teigen denied that she had any plans to have a sit down with Oprah Winfrey.

“I have no idea about the Oprah interview,” Teigen told the outlet. Previously, a source claimed Teigen planned to sit down with the media legend. She allegedly wanted to frame her interview similar to that of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The source also reported that Teigen planned to sit with Oprah in hopes of waving away the controversy.

Later, Courtney Stodden also agreed to sit down with Teigen on Oprah if the occasion arose. Stodden initially accused Teigen of cyberbullying them and encouraging them to commit suicide. Stodden was 16-years-old at the time.

Chrissy Teigen on John Legend

As for how her husband John Legend is doing, well Chrissy Teigen has an answer as well. She revealed that Legend has been a source of comfort during her recent controversies. She had high praise for her husband and thanked him for standing by her side.

“Oh my God, he’s been everything,” she said. “He’s my everything.”

John Legend has been quick to come to his wife’s defense. He recently called out fashion designer Michael Costello on social media. Costello is one of the latest accusers to blast Teigen for cyberbullying. He claimed that Teigen tried to ruin his career, sharing direct messages from their conversations. But Teigen’s team has claimed those messages to be false.

“Chrissy apologized for her public tweets, but after her apology, Mr. Costello fabricated a DM exchange between them. This exchange was made up, completely fake, never happened. Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would fake DMs to insert themselves in this narrative, but that’s what happened. I encourage everyone who breathlessly spread this lie to keep that same energy when they correct the record,” John Legend wrote on Twitter.

Teigen Apologizes to Victims

Chrissy Teigen has officially apologized to victims of cyberbullying, particularly Stodden. In an interview with Medium, Teigen discussed wanting to make amends. But many people have criticized Teigen’s apology as false. And since then accusers like Costello have stepped forward and kept the range of controversies going.

“I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to,” Chrissy Teigen told Medium. “I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show ‘My Name is Earl!’ I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
