CHRISSY Teigen has quit Safely, her home cleaning brand with Kris Jenner, after her old “bullying” tweets resurfaced.
The company announced on Friday that the 35-year-old will no longer be involved with the company.
Safely said in a statement on its Instagram: “Chrissy will be stepping away from Safely to take much needed time to focus on herself and be with her family.
"We fully support her decision and are so thankful for her contributions.
“The brand will continue to move forward and focus on our important mission of bringing high quality, hard-working cleaning products to all American households."
Chrissy and Kris had launched the brand, with both of them as founders and spokespeople for the line, shortly before controversial comments Chrissy made towards Courtney Stodden surfaced.
Courtney – who is non-binary and prefers "they" pronouns – alleged in an interview that Chrissy would send horrific tweets and DMs, including comments that appeared to encourage suicide.
John Legend's wife saw a downfall in her career after these comments came out, as well as when some of her other "bullying" tweets toward other celebrities, like Lindsay Lohan, resurfaced.
Chrissy's kitchenware has been removed from Target's website, as well as Macy’s and Bloomingdales, and she was also removed from her role in season 2 of Netflix's Never Have I Ever.
Prior to leaving Safely, she had been "cut" from all of the brand's marketing amid the bullying scandal.
A source told The Sun at the time: “Kris Jenner has been in crisis mode for weeks with Chrissy’s scandal.
“She likes Chrissy but she’s a numbers girl first and their sales tanked after all of Chrissy’s tweets came out.
“It's the worst case scenario for them, they just launched their cleaning brand days before the scandal.”
The insider said that the “company has had to completely change it’s marketing strategy” because their “whole plan was to focus on the homes and families of Kris and Chrissy.”
