Vile Trolls Target Chrissy Teigen Following Premature Death Of Her Third Child
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have endured a heartbreaking bereavement after losing their third child Jack.
The star was admitted to hospital last month for excessive bleeding and despite doctors' best efforts, sadly she lost her baby.
Chrissy uploaded a gut-wrenching series of photos illustrating the moment she gave birth, her devastation and their moment with Jack before she was discharged.
The 34-year-old wrote on social media: "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough.
"We never decide on our babies' names until the last possible moment after they're born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever."
However, while many people offered their condolences and warm messages of support, others thought it was the time to start making unimaginable accusations.
Conspiracy theorists, with many linked to the QAnon group, tried to link Teigen to Jeffrey Epstein.
They accused her of staging the photos and the loss of Jack and that this was an attempt to distract from pizzagate - a debunked 2016 conspiracy theory that went viral during the Presidential election.

Teigen is no stranger to these types of online trolls and had to make her Twitter account private and delete 60,000 tweets earlier this year to avoid being targeted in the comments section.
Chrissy responded to a tweet from stand-up comedian Chrissie Mayr who was quizzing her about removing 28,000 tweets on 13 July saying 'some celebrities have been VERY busy since ##GhislaineMaxwell was arrested'.
Chrissy replied saying: "I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f**king STAND you idiots anymore and I'm worried for my family. Finding me talking about [reality TV series] Toddlers and Tiaras in 2013 and thinking you're some sort of f**king operative."
She added: "Why would I be such a public paedophile, tweeting about it?? It was about how anyone who watches it [Toddlers and Tiaras] needs to go to jail. It's not hard."
Chrissy had to do the same thing back in the tail end of 2017 when the conspiracy theories started buzzing around.
Self-proclaimed 'investigative journalist' Liz Crokin accused Teigen of playing a part in the Pizzagate paedophile ring conspiracy theory.
Crokin tweeted photos of Teigen and Legend's daughter Luna dressed in various costumes, including Alice in Wonderland and a pineapple, suggesting that the costumes pointed towards some involvement with the completely made-up paedophile ring.
