Chrissy Teigen has publicly apologised for abusing model Courtney Stodden when they was just 16 years old.

The 35-year-old said she feels ‘ashamed and completely embarrassed’ after it emerged she allegedly used to DM the non-binary star, ‘telling them to kill themselves’.  

She tweeted: “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past b******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 behaviour 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!!”

She added: “I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fuelled all this, I want to also publicly apologise. 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.”

Later on, Stodden said they had accepted the apology. However, they added that they hoped it was ‘sincere’.

“I accept her apology and forgive her,” they said. “But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter.

“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 realising her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record.”
