Chrissy Teigen: More bullying claims, amid her 2nd apology
Chrissy Teigen today issued a second apology over her “past horrible tweets” after facing backlash a few weeks ago after old tweets resurfaced which saw Teigen, then 25, telling a 16-year-old to ‘kill herself’.
Now, designer Michael Costello has come forward alleging Teigen also bullied him online.
On Instagram, the designer detailed how he still has “thoughts of suicide” following the alleged bullying.
He said he is still “traumatized, depressed, and have thoughts of suicide” after Teigen allegedly accused him of being a racist in 2014 on his Instagram page.
Costello claims Teigen “formed her own opinion of me” after seeing a “photoshopped comment” that was eventually proven to be false by Instagram — and when he reached out to her to explain what had happened, “she told me that my career was over and that all my doors will be shut from now on.”
He went on to claim that both Teigen and stylist Monica Rose went “out of their way to threaten people and brands that if they were in any shape or form associated with me, they would not work with any of them.”
“Each time I have pleaded with Chrissy Teigen or Monica Rose to see the whole story before believing a false narrative a former disgruntled employee cast upon me, they didn’t give me the time of day.”
“So many nights I stayed awake, wanting to kill myself,” Costello wrote. “I didn’t see the point of living. There was no way I can ever escape from being the target of the powerful elites in Hollywood, who actually do have powers to close doors with a single text.”
Costello says he considered “taking [his] own life” as recently as last week, adding “As a result of what Chrissy Teigen did to me in 2014, I am not okay…To this day, I am still not able to recover from the years of trauma I have experienced.”
He shared to his page alleged DMs from Teigen showing her saying to him, “You will get what’s coming to you.”
“Racist people like you deserve to suffer and die,” she allegedly wrote in another screenshot of DMs. “You might as well be dead. Your career is over, just watch.”
