Chrissy Teigen had a ‘jealousy-fueled meltdown’ over a John Legend music video

BTW

Chrissy Teigen is the queen of being relatable, and on Monday she shared details about a time jealousy led her to freak out on her husband, John Legend. It’s something anyone who’s ever been attacked by the green-eyed monster in a relationship can definitely relate to.

Teigen admitted she had a “jealousy-fueled meltdown” on the set of Legend’s 2008 music video for “Green Light.” Her confession that she’d “made an asshole” of herself left her Twitter followers begging for the full story.

And as it turns out, Teigen’s issue with the song (which she’s said before is her least favorite of her hubby’s songs) is not just that it’s “corny.”

So after conferring with Legend about the facts of the story, Teigen laid it out for her followers.

Per Teigen, Legend’s managers and other people working on the “Green Light” video tried to rile her up with comments about how “BEAAAAAAUUUUTIFUL” some of the actresses were, especially the woman playing Legend’s love interest.

And since Teigen met Legend on the set of a music video herself, she couldn’t help but feel suspicious—and jealous—over the close contact she was seeing between Legend and the other woman on the monitor.

As anyone that’s ever been jealous of their significant other can relate to, Teigen was imagining not-so-innocent dialogue between Legend and the actress. She held it in long enough to witness “a few more shoulder touches and laughs”—and that’s when Teigen says she “lost it.”

“Anger turned to sobbing turned to fleeing the set and getting a hotel room,” she explained.

But looking back, Teigen knows her whole dramatic outburst was rooted in her being “jealous” and “angry” in her early 20s.

“I’m better now,” she said (but like most of us, she’s still occasionally susceptible to jealousy).

The best part is, 10 years after the “Green Light” video, Teigen and Legend are still goals AF.
