Chrissy Teigen remembers even today, a decade later, how the whole thing made her feel. In celebration of her husband John Legend’s Green Light music video turning ten years old, the model and mother of two took to social media to recall the huge meltdown she had on set at the time.
The reason? – She was extremely jealous of the lead actress appearing alongside her singer man.
‘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. Oh, you want to know more, do you? Let me try to remember. Ten years is a long time!’ she teased before returning to her Twitter account with more details about the incident.
‘It began with our friends (john’s managers and co-writers and a couple of others) talking about how BEAAAAAUUUTIFUL some of the women were….and they really were! But in my mind, they were talking about it on purpose just to rile me up. Looking back and knowing them now, THEY WERE DEFINITELY RILING ME UP AND GETTING A KICK OUT OF IT. I was watching the monitor with all of the guys, and someone said ‘ooooo look at that girl with john ooooooo!’ so I watched the monitor like a psychotic (tarantula) hawk and in my mind, ohhh he was in trouble.’
What made her even more paranoid was the fact that the year before, she starred in his Stereo music video and that is how they met and started dating, so she apparently knew how ‘this s**t’ works!
Chrissy went on to hilariously admit that maybe the music video leading lady laughed at something John had said between the takes and in her mind, the dialogue they were having was something ‘GRAND,’ like asking him if he wanted to ‘bone.’
As the interactions between Legend and the girl were getting more and more subtly intimate (in Chrissy’s eyes) she had a full-on breakdown complete with sobbing, fleeing the set and checking into a hotel.
Everyone, there was baffled, including director Alan Ferguson.
Chrissy admits that she was ‘just a jealous 22-year-old’ at the time and that she is now better – but don’t test her!
