Chrissy Teigen opens up about mental health following online bullying controversy

·2-min read

Chrissy Teigen has opened up about her mental health struggles after being called out for cyberbullying Courtney Stodden ten years ago.

The cookbook author wrote a lengthy Instagram post on Wednesday night in which she candidly wrote about her struggle to leave the house after coming under fire for bullying the model and TV personality on Twitter.

"Iiiii don't really know what to say here...just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter s**t in real life," she began. "Going outside sucks and doesn't feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I'm handling this now isn't the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again,I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay."

The TV personality admitted she has learned a lot from being in the "cancel club" and she finds it hard to talk about because she doesn't want to be perceived as complaining when she's "clearly done something wrong."

"All I know is I love you guys, I miss you guys, and I just needed an honest moment with you because I'm just...tired of being sick with myself all day," she shared. "I don't even know if it's good to say any of this because it's gonna get brutally picked apart but I dunno. I can't do this silent s**t anymore!

"If you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch!"

Fellow stars came out in support of the mom of two, with Paris Hilton writing "Sending lots of love beauty" and model Tess Holliday commenting, "You've always shown me nothing but kindness & love & I hope you show yourself the same in return right now."

The post comes two months after ten-year-old tweets resurfaced in which Chrissy trolled reality TV star Courtney, who was a teenager at the time and was shouldering a barrage of criticism for marrying then-husband Doug Hutchinson, who was 35 years her senior.
