Turns out you’ve been pronouncing Ariana Grande and Chrissy Teigen wrong

Chrissy Teigen has been letting fans mispronounce her last name for years.

The 39-year-old star said: "She was supposed to be taping "Lip Sync Battle" while we were here, and she convinced her producers to push the second show back so she could come here in between shows and see if we would win this EGOT".


"I'm exhausted of living this lie". She said it's not pronounced "TEE-gen", but rather "TIE-gen". I even correct people when they say it correctly.

We like to think we know Chrissy Teigen pretty well. "They can name me Janet and I won't". The 32-365 days-veteran says everyone publicizes her name contaminated, in conjunction with herself, which she acknowledges is "effed up".


Okay, enjoy the rest of your day where you'll no doubt tell several people they're pronouncing Chrissy Tie-gen's name wrong and they won't believe you but that's just the burden of being in the know, ya know?

Even she gave up and started pronouncing it the wrong way too! Wrong order? I'll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? "It's Tie-gen", she said in a video posted on Twitter. (As Us Weekly reported, Teigen has confirmed her parents are still married, but that her father lives just 10 minutes away from her household.) While Vilailuck is Thai, the name Teigen is Norwegian.


Relatively nothing is off-limits for model, author and avid Twitter enthusiast Chrissy Teigen, who has dished on everything from her sex life with hubby John Legend to her struggles with postpartum depression.
