Michael Costello says that he is taking a break from social media amid all of the drama that is going on between him and Chrissy Teigen. Earlier this week Michael Costello said that the former model’s alleged bullying was so bad that it made him want to kill himself.
Now both Chrissy and her husband John Legend say that the DMs that Michael shared with the world that supposedly came from Chrissy are fake. Here’s what you need to know.
John Legend took to his Twitter account to suggest that his wife is innocent and that Michael Costello is fabricating the truth on his end. The fashion designer said that the former model’s alleged bullying was so bad that it made him want to kill himself.
Michael Costello Taking A Break From Social Media Amid Chrissy Teigen Drama
On Friday night, Chrissy wrote on Twitter, “No idea what the fuck Michael Costello is doing. He just released a statement where he didn’t at ALL acknowledge how fake the dm’s were, & now claims to have emails that don’t exist.”
The model further presses in the PR statement: “Chrissy has acknowledged her past behavior and the pain she has caused, but she will not stand for anyone spreading false accusations to further demean her name and reputation. Chrissy will continue to do the work she needs to do to be the best person she can be. She hopes Michael Costello can do the same.”
“Chrissy has every right to correct the record and defend her name. she is not interested in making Mr. Costello the target of harassment of abuse from anyone claiming to support her. She hopes this can be a time of honest reflection and healing.”
Michael Costello, meanwhile, insists that he’s telling the truth and nothing but the truth on his end. His statement reads as:
“No idea what the f–k Michael Costello is doing.”
“So while he conjures those up (hopefully with someone more talented in fakes this time),”
The fact that Chrissy Teigen and her crisis team are working so hard, so strategically to come out against the DM’s she sent me, and to downplay the comments she publicly posted on my Instagram, only proves that she is the same bully she always has been, despite her fake apology to the public.
I’ll say this again. Chrissy Teigen has gone out of her way to close doors to my career by making calls, sending texts, telling colleagues and companies that if I were attached to a project that she would not work with them. I have receipts of emails and confirmations from these individuals and companies.
This will be the last statement I am going to make. This has been like a nightmare, not just for me, but for my family. I apologize to everyone else involved in this messy situation, and I apologize for all the stress and trauma it has caused.
Much damage has been done on both sides. Everyone is hurting. It is a messy situation for everyone. But I spoke the truth and I have nothing left to say and nothing left in me to keep fighting against her.
Moving forward, I am taking a break from social media for my mental health. I hope everyone can respect my privacy, my decision.
I won’t be commenting further.
It was also revealed on Friday that Chrissy Teigen will be stepping away from her lifestyle brand, Safely, that she launched with Kris Jenner.
“Chrissy will be stepping away from Safely to take much-needed time to focus on herself and be with her family,” Safely said in a statement posted to the brand’s Instagram Story.
“We fully support her decision and are so thankful for her contributions,” the statement continued. “The brand will continue to move forward and focus on our important mission of bringing high quality, hard-working cleaning products to all American households.”
