13 mins read


She hasn’t been glimpsed on social media in almost three weeks after her abusive tweets to Courtney Stodden and others from 2011 came to light.

But Chrissy Teigen made a rare appearance on Saturday in a sweet photo posted to Instagram on her husband John Legend’s account.

The 35-year-old model looked peaceful as she beamed with her daughter Luna, five, while celebrating her first-ever dance recital.

Chrissy was giving off some late-spring vibes with her lovely sleeveless floral dress covered in watercolor-like designs. 

The Chrissy’s Court star had her long caramel-colored locks partially braided and had the wavy strands resting over her shoulders. 

She shared a soft smile and rested her chin affectionately on little Luna’s head while gazing into the camera and wrapping one arm around her daughter.

Also featured to the side was Chrissy’s mother Vilailuck, who wore a black-and-white plaid jacket with a straw hat featuring a navy blue ribbon.

‘So proud of our little dancer!’ John captioned the cute photo.

Earlier in the day, the singer posted another sweet snap of Luna who beamed ear-to-ear while showing off in her red sequined dress with a lacy skirt.

‘Ready for her first dance recital!’ wrote the proud father.

John’s photo featuring Chrissy appears to be the first time she’s been featured on his Instagram account since May 16.

She hasn’t posted on her own account since May 11, and he most recent tweets were a May 12 thread in which she apologized for bullying tweets she sent to Courtney Stodden in 2011, when they were only 16.

Since those were first reported, additional harassing tweets she sent to Farrah Abraham and Lindsay Lohan have also come to light.

Amid the scandal, the catwalk star is now bowing out of a previous commitment, a voice role on the upcoming second season of Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, according to Deadline.

Chrissy was slated to be one of the guest narrators for the series, co-created by Mindy Kaling, but is exiting the gig amid the fallout following her cyberbullying scandal.

‘Chrissy Teigen has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever,’ a spokesperson for the Netflix series said.

The statement revealed that Teigen’s role ‘is expected to be recast.’

Late last month, the embattled model was glimpsed out for the first time in weeks amid the massive scandal, which has threatened her once-booming business empire. 

The Cravings founder was spotted laughing on a Facetime call after a business meeting in LA, just one day before her Twitter victim Courtney Stodden announced their engagement. 

Teigen is under fire for allegedly telling the former reality star — who identifies as they/them — to ‘kill themselves’ when they were just 16-years-old, and also wrote slanderous comments about a few other Hollywood names. 

The scandal has caused the mother of two to run into a fair amount of trouble in maintaining her partnerships, including a deal with Vrbo and retailers carrying her Cravings cookbooks. 

Despite the backlash she’s incurred for her malicious tweets, Teigen looked relatively chipper as she took her phone call on May 30th in Beverly Hills.

The sighting came just a day before Stodden — who recently came out as non-binary with pronouns of they/them — announced their engagement to Chris Sheng after several years of dating. 

‘I said yes,’ they gushed in the caption, as they showed off an enormous sparkler, adding: ‘the ring made me gag it’s so beautiful.’ 

Chrissy has gone radio silent on social media following outrage over tweets from almost a decade ago, in which she told teen bride Stodden to ‘kill themselves’ and also insinuated that Lindsay Lohan slit her wrists — among other things.

Stodden incurred relentless bullying both publicly and in private from Teigen, who tweeted at the then-teen in 2011: ‘My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby’, followed by: ‘go. to sleep. forever.’  

Old tweets from 2013 have also resurfaced in which she described nine-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis as ‘cocky’ and called Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, then 21, a ‘wh***’.

And ironically enough, Chrissy had stated that she was leaving Twitter before the scandal erupted because she was experiencing too much ‘negative’ abuse.

‘This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively … I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not,’ she said. 

Stodden first rose to fame as the teen bride of much older Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison (then 60-years-old) in 2011, and brought Teigen’s abusive tweets to light in recent weeks. 

‘What a shame #ChrissyTeigen is leaving Twitter,’ they wrote of Chrissy’s supposed parting, sharing a screen grab of one of the model’s many mean tweets to them, before doxxing others. 

Afterwards Stodden told the Daily Beast that they would also get private messages from the Chrissy’s Court star. ‘[Teigen] 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.”

After the barrage of tweets came to light and people called for the model to be ‘cancelled,’ she issued an apology to Stodden.  

‘Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t 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,’ she began.

‘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,’ she wrote.

Stodden appeared to accept the apology but maintained that they had ‘never heard’ a private apology, while revealing Chrissy still had them blocked, years later.

‘I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private,’ Stodden added. 

They went on to say that the apology seemed like damage control amid the backlash.   ‘All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record.’

At the time of the scandal, Target had discontinued their partnership with Teigen’s line of Cravings cookware — though it was said the two came to an agreement in December before the social media eruption. 

But just weeks later, retail giant Macy’s also dropped her cookware line and it was reported that Bloomingdale’s also backed out of a huge deal with the internet personality. 

Expedia-owned rental site VRBO is now also under fire for recently running a promo with Teigen, Legend, and their kids Luna and Miles, to celebrate ‘joy and togetherness.’

The promo push on social media prompted many enraged users to speak out that the company shouldn’t promote partnerships with a ‘bully.’ 

After Vrbo retweeted an article about the commercial from People, one user responded: ‘VRBO, cancel the collab you have with Chrissy NOW unless you support telling children to commit suicide.’

Another tweeted: Hey, @vrbo You’re paying @chrissyteigen to do ads for you after she repeatedly messaged an abused minor, telling them to commit suicide? Really?’

‘Using an abuser bully as a spokesperson no thanks,’ another wrote.
