Courtney Stodden accused Chrissy Teigen of ‘bullying her’ when she was 17 years old, and she shared old tweets she says were from the star telling her ‘I hate you’ and ‘go to sleep forever.’
The 25-year-old reality star took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal a collection of tweets she claims to have received from Chrissy Teigen, 34, who has 12.6 million followers.
These tweets, which are still available on Twitter from 2011 and 2012, include ‘I hate you,’ ‘go. to sleep. forever’ and ‘you have rabies.’
However, it remained unclear what context the tweets were sent in.
In a five-minute-long video she posted to her Instagram, entitled ‘A message to Chrissy Teigen be better [butterfly emoji] @chrissyteigen #chrissyteigan, she wrote: ‘I feel like women need to empower women.’
‘So-called celebrities s**t-shaming me, bullying me, makes me wonder where we are as a society? It’s not as far along as I thought we were for women; it really scares me.’
Courtney boldly claimed: ‘This video is definitely calling out Chrissy Teigen. She stalked me, harassed me, bullied me. Keep in mind, I was a minor, 16/17, during her period of bullying me and hating on me.
‘I’m not trying to say she knew what was happening, but when you’re a 16-year-old married to a 50-year-old, having a celebrity platform like Chrissy’s, bullying 17 or 16-year-old girls, it sticks with you. I’ve realized how much Chrissy Teigen affected me.’
She then claimed she ‘dug up’ some old tweets, that are still available on Twitter, where Teigan said ‘I hate you’, ‘go. to sleep. forever’ and ‘you have rabies.’
The reality star then added: ‘Shame on you, Chrissy!’
