"I am worried for my family," said Teigen, mother of two and claimed that she has nothing to do with either Epstein or Maxwell. She said that she has never even met the man, forget flying on his jet. She said that she is being tormented with tweets trying to link her to Epstein.

"If we wanna play with your lie just for fun, do you understand that if I were on the flight for the date of this 'manifest,' I'd be a victim" – before vowing to "stop entertaining them," said Teigen on Twitter.
She also gave her reasons for deleting the 60,000 tweets and said that she can't stand the trolls anymore. "I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot STAND you idiots anymore and I'm worried for my family.
