Leona Lewis has spoken out in defence of Chrissy Teigen and accused fashion designer Michael Costello of humiliating her. Teigen, a food writer, TV presenter and wife of singer John Legend, issued an apology this week after she became caught up in a bullying scandal involving a number of fellow celebrities.
Among them was Costello, who alleged that Teigen once made him suicidal after he was falsely accused of using a racist slur.
Singer Lewis, who won The X Factor in 2006, has now claimed Costello’s accusation is “the pot calling the kettle black”. She accused Costello of leaving her with “deep insecurities” after a perceived snub over a dress she was wearing at a charity fashion show in 2014.
