Courtney Stodden is in the process of writing her memoir and it has got her reflecting on some extremely hard times and harsh treatment she received from model Chrissy Teigen. Most people know Teigen for her fun, bubbly attitude and of course the way she claps back at her bullies on social media. Unfortunately, Stodden is accusing Teigen of “stalking” and “harassment”. It is unclear if the accusations will make it into the book but Stodden certainly shared her experience in a detailed IG video.
The video was five minutes long and it put Teigen on blast for her alleged reckless bullying of Stodden who was only 16 at the time and newly married. Stodden initially made headlines when she married actor Doug Hutchinson when he was 50 and and she was 16. The incidents of bullying took place during 2011 and 2012. Stodden captioned the Instagram post “A Message to Chrissy Teigen Be Better”. In the video she shares that she is going through a lot and has come to some revelations.
“Women need to empower women and there was a time in my life when I was 16 and 17 years old being abused by an alcoholic almost every single night. After a while I thought it was normal because my own father is an alcoholic, so I just accepted it.” Then the 25-year-old dropped the bullying bombshell that no one expected to hear. “On top of that I had so-called celebrities slut-shaming me and bullying me…where are we as a society for women?” asked Stodden.
“This video is definitely calling out Chrissy Teigen. She stalked me. She harassed me. She bullied me, and keep in mind, I was a minor,” said Stodden. She clarifies that Teigen did not know what was happening to her behind closed doors but thought that she could look at the situation and see that something wasn’t right and maybe choose to not bully her. Stodden claimed that Teigen would tweet her “everyday” telling her how much she hated her and continuously called her a slut. Which is ironic for someone who always has their boobs out on social media.
Unfortunately, for Teigen theses may not be baseless accusations. Stodden posted a bunch of tweets that she went back to old Twitter and Instagram posts to find. Sure enough, Teigen said some horrific things to the 16-year-old. One tweet shows Teigen asking Stodden “what drugs are you on”, another she called her a “butthole” and in another she simply said, “I hate you”. It looks like all the tweets were unprovoked meaning Stodden was doing what every teenager does tweeting about things that make her happy and Teigen was trolling her to filth but clearly took it too far.
Stodden also stressed that the tweets came at a horrible time in her life and did nothing but effect her in a poor way. She decided to share these incidents because Teigen was just making headlines for calling out yet another cyberbully who referred to her as “Sponge Bob” in reference to her “square” body. “Girl, you are a hypocrite,” said Stodden. “I still see her bullying once in a while but when she comes out saying that she’s stronger than people shaming her — well, you shamed a minor.” Let’s see how Teigen crawls her way out of this one. For someone who is so active on social media she hasn’t had a lot to say in the last 24 hours.
