‘I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll’: Chrissy Teigen finally apologizes to Courtney Stodden over tweets from 2011 telling the teenage bride to commit suicide
Chrissy Teigen has offered Courtney Stodden lengthy apologies for insulting tweets and direct messages she sent in 2011 encouraging the former teenage bride to commit suicide.
‘I’m hurt and sad for who I was,’ Teigen, 35, tweeted Wednesday. ‘I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely ashamed of my behavior. ‘
Earlier this week, Stodden, 26, who recently came out as non-binary, revealed that Teigen would “ send me a DM privately and tell me to kill myself ” on Twitter, after Teigen publicly insulted the model on the social media platform, telling them “go to sleep forever.”

Stodden – who shared their new pronouns, they / they / their – first spoke about the offending tweets in an Instagram post last year, saying they had not received an apology from Teigen.
However, John Legend’s wife has now fully admitted her wrongdoing, as she tweeted, “ I have tried to get in touch with Courtney privately, but since I fueled all of this publicly, I also want to publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how sorry I am. ‘
Teigen added: “And I am so sorry to let you down. I will forever work to be better than 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago. ‘
