She’s doing great

Putting on a brave face, the singing sensation confidently walked over to his car as he was asked about his wife.

Two days ago, the former Swimsuit Illustrated model issued an apology after admitting to “trolling” celebrities in an effort to become “cool and relatable”.

Her husband of eight years has so far kept his silence on the matter, but finally addressed the situation.

The All Of Me hitmaker insisted that his wife is holding up well following the calls for her to be “cancelled” after her “trolling” messages were unearthed.

When asked by TMZ how Chrissy is doing, John replied: “She’s doing great.”

The mother-of-two recently released a lengthy public apology after her historic trolling comments and messages came to light.

Sent to the likes of actress Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Stodden, and Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Chrissy profusely apologised for her nasty messages and confessed to being a “troll.”

“I know I’ve been quiet, and Lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done,'” Teigen wrote.

“Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.”

She continued: “As you know, a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets resurfaced.

“I’m truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”

She revealed she had made a public apology to Stodden last month, who had called her out for “bullying” her when she was a teenager.

Teigen went on: “I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show My Name is Earl! I understand that they may not want to speak to me.

“I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”

She added: “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor.

“I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

John Legend’s wife admitted she was “insecure, immature and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted”.

She explained that she jumped on a “pop culture pile-on” to “gain attention” in order to show off what she believed at the time was a “crude, clever, harmless quip”.

“I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities,” she sighed.

She ended her speech: “I ask that you allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own past mistakes and be given the opportunity to seek self improvement and change. Phew. A lot, I know. Thanks for listening.”
