Bloomingdales has become the latest brand to drop Chrissy Teigen over her 2011 Twitter post to Courtney Stodden telling her to kill herself.
Teigen would sign a contract with the department store that would seal the deal on appearance, but it was torn at the last minute.
An insider told Page Six on Tuesday, “They pretty much had it together, but they had to cancel it.”
It comes as no surprise, given that Bloomingdales is owned by the same parent company as Macy’s, which shut down Teigen’s cookware line earlier this week.
Teigen, 35, has come under fire in recent days, after tweets telling a then 16-year-old Stodden, now 26, to commit suicide again surfaced.

Stodden has claimed how Teigen sent her shocking tweets and direct messages that seemed to encourage her to take her own life.
Stodden revealed that Teigen still hasn’t apologized to them privately and has called on her to lose her lucrative brand deals, warning companies that it ‘doesn’t seem right’ to ‘partner with someone encouraging a minor to commit suicide’ .
Stodden denounced Teigen by saying she had “ made her career by apologizing ” and questioned the sincerity of her public Twitter apologies.
Monday morning, the kitchen items, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, didn’t make it to Macy’s website at all.
In the aftermath of the scandal, it was also revealed that Teigen lost her contract with retail giant Target, although the retailer said a decision had been made to impeach her in December, before the current scandal broke.
The website also no longer showcases its cookware line Cravings by Chrissy Teigen – which she launched exclusively with them in 2019 – but it is still sells three of her cookbooks.

Teigen also lost its contract with retail giant Target, although the retailer has said a decision was taken in December to drop her.
Target says the partnership ended in late 2020 and has nothing to do with the controversy.
“We made a joint decision in December to discontinue the cookware line, given our continued focus on brands we develop that can only be found at Target,” the company said in a statement.
Teigen came under fire last week after Stodden revealed that the former model and wife of John Legend had sent insulting messages telling them to commit suicide in the past.
In 2011, Teigen inundated Stodden with nasty tweets, including one telling her to ‘sleep forever’.
Stodden was sixteen at the time.
Teigen, who previously took pride in her tweets and won millions of fans through them, has publicly apologized, saying she was trying to contact Stodden.
Stodden says no.
“ She apologized on Twitter, but I got blocked for the apology so I couldn’t really see it, but a few people sent it to me, ” they said.
“I feel like if she was genuinely sorry, she would have at least contacted me privately. She said she did, but she didn’t. ‘
In 2011, Teigen published a barrage of unearthed tweets telling the then 16-year-old Stodden to ‘go to sleep forever’
Teigen discussed the controversy on her Twitter account last Wednesday while writing a lengthy apology
The former teenage bride said they had doubts about the intent behind Teigen’s apology and posted an image showing that they had been blocked by the model on Twitter.
In March of this year, Chrissy Teigen revealed she was quitting Twitter (though she would later rejoin) amid a string of negative comments from trolls
