The 35-year-old model-turned-cookbook author was set to do voiceover as a guest narrator in Mindy Kaling's coming-of-age comedy series, Never Have I Ever.

"Chrissy Teigen has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever," a spokesperson for the show said. "The role is expected to be recast."

This is the latest business deal that's gone awry for the wife of John Legend in the last month, following the aftermath of resurfaced cyber-attacks on a then-teenage Stodden and other young Hollywood stars.

Back in 2011/2012, Chrissy was vocal about her disdain for Courtney, often publicly tweeting messages wishing they would take a "dirt nap" and "go to sleep forever." But the allegations really only made headlines last month, after Stodden claimed Teigen would also urge them to commit suicide in private messages.

In response to the backlash, Teigen tweeted a public apology to Stodden and her fans, saying she was "mortified and sad" at who she used to be. "I was an insecure, attention seeking troll," she said, adding that she had "tried to connect with Courtney privately."

Though Stodden accepted the apology and forgave Chrissy, they claimed they "never heard from her or her camp in private." Courtney noted the apology felt like "a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her 'wokeness' is a broken record."

After the scandal went viral, several vendors and stores that sell or were going to sell Chrissy's cookbooks and/or cookware line – including Bloomingdales, Macy's and seemingly Target – reportedly cut ties with the star.

Teigen has not commented on the matter further and has remained mum on social media, though earlier this week she was seen in public for the first time in a long time.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, the mother of two was spotted out in Los Angeles, smiling and laughing while on a call. She had reportedly just left a business meeting, which would be a big deal for the recently embattled star.

Meanwhile, Stodden was in Palm Springs sharing poolside kisses with boyfriend-turned-fiancé Chris Sheng, who hours later presented his partner of five years with a very large and very sparkly cushion-cut diamond ring. Courtney said "yes."
