Chrissy Teigen Reveals How She Was Scammed When She Was a Young Model

Chrissy Teigen is opening up about coming up in the modeling world, and how when she first started out, she was being scammed out of money.

“When I started out in the modeling world I was bouncing around from agency to agency. I thought it was cool that agents wanted me and that I could get work. And I think when you’re young and excited to begin that world you don’t really think that anyone has any negative intentions. You just get so excited, you’ll do anything. You’ll do all the favors,” Chrissy said during an interview with Revolve.

“I remember living in Miami in this apartment with five other young models, and it was two bedroom and we were each paying like $4,000 a piece. Looking back it doesn’t make any sense, but for me it was so cool that an agency wanted to move me to Miami. It felt glamorous, and it felt cool but I didn’t realize how many people pull fast ones on you and I would have definitely gotten a business manager a lot earlier as a young person,” Chrissy continued.

And she also offered up some advice to young models: “Be humble….The world is really small. Word travels so fast with how you treat people. How speak to people. Little things go a really long way.”

    Can imagine how much sex and bjs all her agents must have gotten from her when she was starting out since she said she did anything and did all the favors to get to where she is now. Too bad they didn’t record it and can leak it all.
