Michael Costello, a designer, is the latest to accuse Chrissy Teigen of bullying.
The saga of Chrissy Teigen's bullying continues.
Within five hours of Teigen publishing a lengthy apology on Medium in response to bullying allegations made against her by Courtney Stodden and others, designer Michael Costello came forward on Instagram to accuse the model of bullying him to the point of suicidal thoughts.
“For the last seven years, I've been living with an unresolved trauma,” Costello, who stars in "Project Runway," explained.
Costello, 38, continued, Teigen "apparently formed her own opinion of me in 2014 based on a Photoshopped comment floating around the internet that has since been removed by Instagram."
The omitted portion of the comment was altered to make it appear as though Costello used a racial slur.
Costello shared screenshots of their conversation, demonstrating that Teigen was not sparing with the insults and veiled threats.
Costello began the messages by requesting permission to call Teigen.
“No! Teigen responded, "I have nothing to say to you." “You will receive what is due to you.”
Costello then explains that the fabricated images were indeed fabricated, but Teigen continued.
Costello also claimed in his post that Teigen and her stylist Monica Rose "went out of their way to threaten people and brands that they would not work with them if they were in any way associated with me."
Costello admitted, "I didn't see the point of living." “There was no way I could ever avoid becoming a target of Hollywood's powerful elites.”
“I am not in a good place,” he continued. “While I may never be okay, I am choosing to speak my truth today.”
