Chrissy Teigen Says Forever 21 Fired Her for Being ‘Fat’

Chrissy Teigen won’t be shopping at Forever 21 any time soon.

The 28-year-old model shared with DuJour magazine that early on in her career, the clothing company fired her from a photo shoot because of her weight, and understandably, she still hasn’t forgiven them.

“They booked me directly when I was much younger. And I showed up on set, and they asked me if they could take a photo,” she shared. “And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair. And they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said you are fat, and you need to come get your measurements taken.’”

She went on to add, “I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you’re the worst.”

The gorgeous brunette has gone on to cover the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, so it’s clear whose loss it really was!

Chrissy, who is married to hit singer John Legend, also shared a funny story of the time she was mistaken for her husband’s prostitute. Awkward! “A hotel in Los Angeles sold a story that John was at a hotel with what appeared to be a high-class hooker,” she explained.

Though the hotel insisted it wasn’t the singer’s wife, it was definitely Chrissy. “It was me!” she said with a laugh. “That’s horrible. High class, though,” she added good-naturedly.

We have to hand it to her — at least she’s got a good attitude about everything!
