In a series of tweets over the weekend, Chrissy Teigen revealed she once had a “jealousy-fueled meltdown” on the set of one of John Legend’s music videos.
Here’s how it all went down: When a fan account tweeted a “happy anniversary” to Legend’s song “Green Light,” which came out 10 years ago on Sunday, Teigen responded with an interesting tidbit of information. “Fun fact, I had a jealously-fueled meltdown visiting this video set and made an asshole out of myself to a large group of people,” she wrote. Obviously, fans wanted to know more.
So she continued: “It began with our friends (john’s managers and cowriters and a couple others) talking about how BEAAAAAAUUUUTIFUL some of the women were…” she wrote, referring to the women on set who were appearing in the video. “…and they were! But in my mind they not only were talking about it, they were talking about it on purpose to rile me up. Looking back and knowing how well I know them now, THEY WERE DEFINITELY RILING ME UP AND GETTING A KICK OUT OF IT. I was watching the monitor with all the guys and someone, I can’t remember who, said, ‘ooooooo look at that girl with john ooooooooo!’ so I watched the monitor like a psychotic (tarantula) hawk and in my mind, oh he was in trouble.”
This was around the time Teigen said she started to get upset. “Keep in mind john and I met on a video. I was that girl! I know how this shit works!” she wrote. “He probably laughed at something she said. And in my mind it was some GRAND conversation I was conjuring up. They were probably just talking about craft services honestly but in my mind she was like ‘hey we should bone’ and he was like ‘haha fuck yeah!'”
She expanded further, “A few more shoulder touches and laughs with her later, I lost it. Anger turned to sobbing turned to fleeing the set and getting a hotel room. The director (ALAN FERGUSON!) was baffled. Everyone was. Anyhow I wish more happened but no. I was just a jealous, angry 22 year old. I’m better now. BUT DONT TEST ME.”
