Model, musician and reality star Courtney Stodden says she has accepted Chrissy Teigen’s apology for bullying her on social media when Stodden was a teen. Stodden made headlines in 2011 when at the age of 16 married then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. During an interview, she mentioned that many celebrities including Teigen were mean to her at that time.
After social media started weighing in on it, Teigen took to Twitter to apologize.
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past (expletive) in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll,” Teigen tweeted on May 12.
“I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try,” she added.
“I’m so sorry, Courtney,” Teigen wrote. “I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
Responding to the apology, Stodden wrote, “I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private.”
“In fact, she blocked me on Twitter,” Stodden wrote in the caption of a photo of a screen grab of being blocked from Teigen’s Twitter account. “All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her “wokeness” is a broken record.”
Stodden had also told media that, Teigen use to sent private DMs encouraging them to kill themself.
