John Legend defends Chrissy Teigen & claims designer Michael Costello 'FAKED' mean tweets & bullying 'never happened'
CHRISSY Teigen's husband, John Legend, defended the star in a set of tweets and claimed celebrity designer Michel Costello "faked" mean tweets after he accused the mother of two told him to "suffer and die."
Michael claimed Chrissy spread rumors about him that he was "racist."
John took to Twitter to answer to the claims, as he wrote: "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. Receipts below…"
The musician directed his followers to a tweet by reporter Taylor Lorenz who wrote: "These DMs designer Michael Costello tried to say were from Chrissy Tiegen "bullying" him really looked like the fakest thing ever and @kattenbarge debunked them here."
John was not done there, as he also tweeted: "Honestly I don’t know why anyone would fake DMs to insert themselves in this narrative, but that’s what happened."
He added: "I encourage everyone who breathlessly spread this lie to keep that same energy when they correct the record."
The chaos kicked off after the 38-year-old designer shared a head-turning Instagram post where he claimed: “In 2014, I received a public comment from Chrissy Teigen on my Instagram page, accusing me of being a racist.
“She apparently formed her own opinion of me based on a photoshopped comment floating around the internet which has now been proven to be false by Instagram and since taken down.
“When I reached out to Chrissy Teigen to communicate that I was a victim of a vindictive cyber slander, and that everything she thought I was is not who I am, she told me that my career was over and that all my doors will be shut from there on.”
In addition to the text posts, Michael shared a DM exchange between him and Chrissy.
After he asked if he could call her, Chrissy responded: “No! I do not have anything to say to you. You will get what’s coming to you.”
Michael insisted he “never called anyone the n word,” as Chrissy replied: “Good luck with that lmao hope that story keeps your already dead career going.”
After Michael claimed he was "suffering," Chrissy allegedly wrote: "Good! Racist people like you deserve to suffer and die. You might as well be dead. Your career is over, just watch.”
A representative for Michael then exclusively revealed to The Sun that the 35-year-old had still not offered an apology despite inciting "years of trauma" upon him.
Chrissy's team then "found technical inconsistencies" in the private DMs that Michael shared, according to Business Insider.
The cookbook author has been in hot water for weeks after old tweets resurfaced where it showcased Chrissy bullying Courtney Stodden when she was just 16 years old, as well as other notable celebrities.
Courtney previously spoke out against Chrissy in an interview with The Daily Beast.
They said: "She wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, "I can't wait for you to die."'
One past tweet from Chrissy read: “@CourtneyStodden my Friday fantasy: you. Dirt nap. Mmmmmm baby.”
Chrissy was also accused of "bullying" Lindsay Lohan in 2011 as well as former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham.
Chrissy, who was also accused of "pushing Cameroonian singer Dencia twice" at 2016 Grammys, recently took to Medium to apologize again for her past behavior.
The star admitted she was a "troll" and an "a**hole" but that she is ‘no longer that person."
