Chrissy Tegan and her husband John Legend are breaking the silence over allegations of harassment by fashion designer Michael Costello.
Prolonged Twitter In a statement Friday, Tegan accused Costello of copying screenshots that allegedly threatened the model’s career, saying in a direct message that Tegyan sent her in 2014.
According to the Insider and the Huffington Post, Costello posted the photos on his now-private Instagram account on Monday, with the caption stating that Tigen accused him of racism in an Instagram comment against him. Costello added that Tegen and his stylist friend Monica Rose have confirmed that she missed out on professional opportunities and that their brutality led her to consider suicide.
On Friday, however, Tigen shared a statement claiming that the screenshots described by Costello contain imperfections proving that they are doctored. An icon for Instagram’s video chat function, which didn’t launch until 2018; And a color scheme that was not added to the application until 2020.
“The old profile picture and these new Instagram features cannot coexist in the same authentic screenshot,” the statement said.
Tigin’s statement added that Rose was not part of the model team until 2016 and did nothing to harm stylist Costello.
Although Tigen’s statement said the model posted a comment on Costello’s Instagram alleging publicly racist comments, it said that after Costello’s explanation, it was claimed that the allegation was based on Photoshop’s comments.
“Chrissy has acknowledged his past behavior and the pain he caused, but he will not stand up to anyone who spreads false accusations to further his own name and reputation. Chrissy will continue to do what he needs to do to be the best he can be. He hopes Michael Costello can do the same. “
In his own set TweetsLegend has it that Tegan’s alleged DM exchange with Castello “was made, completely fake, never happened”.
He added, “I really don’t know why anyone would duplicate the DMs to get themselves into this description, but it happened,” he added. “I encourage those who spread this lie with a sigh while revising the record to maintain the same strength.”
Costello later addressed the legend in a statement of his own Twitter.
The designer wrote, “I thought about whether I should write it, but I have to do it.” “” If anyone wants to say something about my family, I will protect them from the highest. You understand where you come from @ JohnLegend. I respect and love your music. Even if you have four songs in my playlist, you don’t care.
He added: “But your wife has hurt good people and done a lot of shady work offline to ruin other people’s careers. You don’t know it but she does.”
Legend has a brief proposition The answer: “Bruh. Stop. You know you made all this. Please stop.”

“I know I was silent, and the Lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know that I am sitting in the pit of the punishment I deserve, the ultimate ‘sit here and think what you have done,'” Tigen wrote in a blog post on Monday. .
Last month, Tegan publicly exposed Courtney Stodden for harassment, telling her that they killed her when she was 16 years old. Tigin’s track record of this bullying also included tweets directed by Avril Lavigne, Lindsay Lohan and Republican politician Sarah Palin.
“Not a day has passed, not a single moment has passed where I have not felt the heavy burden of grief for what I have said in the past,” Tygan wrote. “I’m really ashamed of them. When I look at them and realize the damage they’ve done, I have to stop and think: How could I do that?”
