John Legend's supermodel wife Chrissy Teigan has named and shamed bosses at U.S. clothing firm Forever 21 for firing her over weight concerns.

The stunning Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model tells DuJour magazine she was kicked off a modeling job years ago for being "too fat". She recalls, "They (Forever 21 bosses) booked me directly when I was much younger. And I showed up on set, and they asked me if they could take a photo.

"They shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the make-up chair. And they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said you are fat, and you need to come get your measurements taken'."

And Teigen has never forgotten - or forgiven - the cowardly Forever 21 bosses, adding, "I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst."
