Michael CostelloDouble up on claims Chrissy TeigenHe was bullied and traumatized, and she says her attempts to discredit him confirm that “she is still the same bully.”
The “Project Runway” star responded to the news that broke Thursday night — Chrissy’s team claims that the 2014 Instagram direct messages Costello shared earlier this week to show how they bullied him… are fake, or at least manipulated.
Chrissy’s side claims that the alleged DMs between Teigen and Costello contain technical inconsistencies that indicate they have been altered.
As reported… Costello claims Teigen attacked him because she mistakenly believed he had posted something racist, and says it led to A campaign that lasted for years To be blacklisted from the fashion industry. He also claims that Chrissy nearly pushed him to commit suicide.
Although Chrissy questions DMs, Costello maintains that for 7 years he has been a “victim of trauma and bullying by Chrissy Teigen both online and offline”…and points to public comments she posted as further evidence.
He adds… “When the victim feels that their only way is to speak out, and the abuser’s first step is to discredit and publicly expose the victim, this commits victim blaming and costs lives.”
Costello also claims to have undisclosed emails and documents that show Chrissy bypassing social media to blacklist him in the real world, “leaving him to endure more than seven years of suffering — both mentally and financially.”
While Chrissy has said that she plans to get in touch personally with some of the people she bullied – the constant back and forth allegations between Michael and her do not bode well for any kind of face-to-face confrontation… He invited her to do it.
