AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen is inarguably a clap-back queen. The 32-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model has come to Oprah Winfrey's defense after Seal mocked the former talk show queen by linking her to Harvey Weinstein, following her powerful Golden Globes speech which sparked rumors of potential presidential run in 2020.
As reported before, Seal took to his Instagram account to call out Oprah for what he believed was knowing about the rumors surrounding the former The Weinstein boss. Sharing a collage of photos, one of which featured Oprah kissing Harvey on the cheek at an event, the British musician wrote across it, "When you have been part of the problem for decades but suddenly they all think you are the solution."
The "Fly Like an Eagle" singer sarcastically added in the caption of the post he shared on Wednesday, January 10, "Oh I forgot, that's right.....you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad." He also added the hashtag #SanctimoniousHollywood.
Chrissy later showed up in his comment section and suggested that there could also be rumors out there about the 54-year-old singer/songwriter. "Hmm. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we," so the model, who is currently pregnant with her second child with singer husband John Legend, wrote, which received many likes.
It's unclear if Oprah was indeed aware of the many claims against Harvey which came to light last year following bombshell reports that led to the 65-year-old disgraced movie mogul being fired from The Weinstein Company and checking into a sex rehab in Arizona. But in the days following those reports, Oprah addressed the burgeoning allegations against Harvey in an October Facebook post.
"I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's hideous behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation," the "A Wrinkle in Time" actress wrote at the time. She also thanked the victims who had come forward and added, "I believe a shift is coming."
