Courtney Stodden said they have not received a personal apology from Chrissy Teigen, for social media bullying Teigen inflicted toward them a decade back.
The singer/model, 26, who identifies as non-binary, appeared at an event for People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) at Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on Wednesday, commenting on the ongoing controversy with the model/cookbook author, 35.
Teigen on Tuesday told TMZ that she ‘has reached out to’ Stodden via text, but Stodden denied having received anything.
The latest: Courtney Stodden, 26, said they have not received a personal apology from Chrissy Teigen, 35, for social media bullying Teigen inflicted toward them a decade back
‘I haven’t received anything from her, I don’t know what she’s talking about, she’s never reached out to my team, I’ve never gotten any emails, anything,’ Stodden said.
Teigen, who has come under fire in recent months for past toxic social media behavior – some relating to Stodden – has talked about being in the ‘Cancel Club,’ referring to the pushback she’s experienced in the wake of the scandal.
Stodden on Wednesday told the outlet that Teigen should do less complaining about the bad publicity, and use her fame and notoriety to focus on more positive endeavors.
‘I have a message for her … I think that continuing to gripe about being in cancel club or whatever that is, step out take your part and maybe do something for charities, step out, do something anti-bullying, if she really means what she says, get out, do something – it really helps the spirit,’ Stodden said.

Stodden first made headlines in 2011 at 16 in marrying a then-50-year-old Doug Hutchison, the actor best known for his roles in 1999’s The Green Mile and on the ABC TV show Lost.
In one instance in October of 2011, Teigen wrote, ‘Saying courtney stodden’s FB age got shut down for being too sexy is like saying the nazi’s were just meanies. As in, not quite;’ in another tweet Teigen directed at Stodden in early 2012, she wrote, ‘I hate you;’ in other tweets over the years, Teigen compared Stodden to an ‘animal’ and took other jabs at their person.
Teigen, who is married to superstar singer John Legend, had apologized publicly in May to Stodden in a tweet, writing, ‘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 behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.’
At the event in the nation’s capital Wednesday, Stodden donned a black PETA shirt with blue jeans with their wavy locks parted in the middle, telling the outlet that they hoped to persuade people not to consume meat products.
‘It’s so important because so many people are still eating meat and they’re not really understanding what meat does to us, it is like a huge driver for cancer, diabetes, strokes … it’s just not healthy and there’s just so many options now,’ Stodden said.
