    Chrissy Teigen Will No Longer Work With Cofounded Brand Safely

    And the train that is the fallout over Chrissy's online bullying controversy keeps on chugging.

    Note: This post includes a mention of suicide.

    Another day, another update in the Chrissy Teigen online bullying controversy.

    Safely, a home cleaning and self-care line that Chrissy cofounded with Kris Jenner, announced on Instagram that the model would be stepping away from the brand to "take much needed time to focus on herself and be with her family."

    The plant-powered brand, which sells products like hand sanitizer and multipurpose cleaner, launched in March with the help of Good American cofounder and CEO Emma Grede.

    The announcement comes after a messy unfolding of details about Chrissy's bullying, which was spurred by TV personality Courtney Stodden's reveal that they were harassed by Chrissy publicly and privately.

    As a result, Chrissy has dropped out of personal and professional endeavors, including leaving a voiceover role in Netflix's Never Have I Ever.

    Bloomingdale's has also dropped the model over the controversy, and the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen cookware line was taken off Target's and Macy's websites.

    In the latest update, designer Michael Costello alleged that Chrissy's bullying led him to thoughts of suicide, and showed DM screenshots to boot.

    But in a head-spinning back-and-forth, Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, claimed the DMs were falsified, to which Michael responded by saying it was an effort to "downplay" her harassment and only proved that she is the "same bully" she has always been.

    Chrissy apologized for her public tweets, but after her apology, Mr Costello fabricated a DM exchange between them. This exchange was made up, completely fake, never happened. Receipts below:
