Chrissy Teigen Reveals That She Was Fired from Forever 21 for Being Fat

by The Insider 1:14 mins

Can you believe that Chrissy Teigen, one of of today's most successful models, was once fired for being fat? Teigen, who graced the cover of the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, revealed in a behind-the-scenes video with DuJour Magazine that she was actually fired from a very popular clothing brand. "Actually, I was fired from a job. Forever 21. They booked me directly when I was much younger," she explained. "I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo and then 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.'" Ouch. As a result, John Legend's wife still holds a grudge against the brand to this day. "I hate you Forever 21," she said. "I hate you so much. Honestly, you are the worst." The clothing retailer responded in a statement to “The Insider With Yahoo”: “Forever 21 celebrates and dresses women and girls of all shapes and sizes and is very supportive of the talent it works with. We are disappointed to hear of Chrissy Teigen's displeasure with her experience. We wish her continued success." Check out this video to see why Chrissy doesn't like to talk about her fitness and dieting regime, and tune in to "The Insider With Yahoo" for the latest in entertainment news.
