Courtney Stodden has accepted the public apology Chrissy Teigen made this week, following her exposure for cruel Tweets she made about the singer-songwriter's personal life, reports CNN.

Stodden, a multi-faceted entertainment star who came out as nonbinary last month, became nationally known when they were 16 in 2011 and married then-50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison.

Following their divorce last year, Stodden revealed in an interview with the Daily Beast this week that many celebrities, including Teigen, cruelly bullied her in private.

"[Teigen] wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself," Stodden stated. "Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die.'"

Following the public backlash from this revelation, Teigen took to Twitter to apologize for actions.

Stodden was quick to respond, stating that while she accepted her apology, that no effort was made to reconcile behind the scenes.

"I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private," Stodden wrote. "In fact, she blocked me on Twitter."

Stodden was also quick to point out that this statement was only made following Target's removal of her cooking collection, in addition to several brands publicly distancing themselves from Tiegen.

"All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her 'wokeness' is a broken record."
