Although the couple tried to sell the property in 2021, they were forced to withdraw amid a long social media battle after controversial bullying claims scandaled Teigen, but ultimately sold the property to the current owner.

The string of bullying allegations against the model came after model Courtney Stooden, 27, – who came out as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns – revealed Teigen ‘would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself’, after Teigen would publicly troll Stooden on Twitter in 2011. 

Stooden made the claims in an interview with the Daily Beast and explained they were just 16 years old when Teigen publicly trolled them.  

Stodden claimed: ‘She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take “a dirt nap” but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, “I can’t wait for you to die.”‘ 

A ‘dirt nap’ alludes to a dead person’s burial, and Teigen’s 2011 tweet to Stodden reads: ‘My Friday fantasy: You. Dirt nap. Mmmmmm baby.’

Another tweet from Teigen to Stodden stated: ‘go. to sleep. forever.’

It is not clear what triggered Teigen to launch the public attacks on Stodden, other than at the time they were just 16 years old and had gained notoriety for marrying Doug Hutchinson, who was 51.

However, some of the tweets Teigen was responding to are no longer available to view on Twitter.

Fashion designer and Project Runway alum Michael Costello also claimed Teigen bullied him based on a faulty belief that he’d posted racist messages, which then resulted in Teigen taunting him, torpedoing his career and leaving him with suicidal thoughts. 

In screenshots Costello said were DMs he exchanged with Teigen, she purportedly wrote to him, ‘Racist people like you deserve to suffer and die. You might as well be dead. Your career is over, just watch.’ 

Although reps for Teigen told Business Insider the DMs Costello shared had been manipulated, tweets of the model trolling others continued to resurface. 

Teigen came under fire after cruel posts on Twitter aimed at s come under fire in Stodden, Lindsay Lohan, Quvenzhané Wallis, and others resurfaced.

In 2013, she described nine-year-old Oscar nominee Wallis as ‘cocky’ and called Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, then 21, a ‘wh***’. 

Lohan was also the subject of an insensitive post by Teigen. A tweet from January 2011 read: ‘Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone.’ 

Amid the backlash, Teigen was dropped by several companies, including Safely, the cleaning brand she founded with Kris Jenner; Macy’s; Target; and Bloomingdale’s.

Furthermore, large retailers removed her line of Cravings cookware from its shelves and Teigen pulled out as a narrator in the Netflix TV show Never Have I Ever. 

In a Medium post, Teigen admitted to the bullying claims and added she plans to reach out to everyone she has insulted. 

Teigen began by writing: ‘Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks.

‘I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate “sit here and think about what you’ve done”,’ the supermodel wrote.

‘Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.

‘I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry,’ Teigen writes in her Medium post from Monday.

She added: ‘There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does.

‘Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding, and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor.’

Teigen continued: ‘When I first started using social media, I had so much fun with it.

‘I made jokes, random observations. Think of all the engineers, working day and night to develop this amazing new platform and technology, connecting people all over the world to learn, create, and find kindred spirits.

‘And I used it to snark at some celebrities.’

Teigen noted that her cruel tweets came as a result of her insecurities and a need to ‘to impress strangers to be accepted.’

‘If there was a pop culture pile-on, I took to Twitter to try to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip,’ she wrote.

‘I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities.’

Teigen wrote that when she is now confronted with some of her past posts, ‘I cringe to my core.’

Despite the bullying scandal, the couple seems to have moved on just like the current owner of their former home who is hoping to sell the home fit for a star without any hiccups.
