The model said she had connected with Stodden privately, but also wanted to apologize publicly.
Stodden, who has recently come out as non-binary, made headlines a decade ago for her marriage to 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. Stodden was 16 at the time.
They also revealed they received hateful comments from celebrities back then, including DMs from Teigen.
“[Chrissy] 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,'” they alleged in an interview with The Daily Beast.
Here is Chrissy Teigen’s response to Courtney Stodden in full
Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…
is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. 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!!
I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.
And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.
