Michael Costello has found himself at the center of his own bullying allegations from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Falynn Guobadia.
The designer made headlines after accusing Chrissy Teigen of bullying him and leaving him with “unhealed trauma” and suicidal thoughts after allegedly working to blacklist him from the community of fashion.
After Costello made her statement, singer Leona Lewis took to Instagram and claimed the designer “deeply hurt” and “humiliated” her when he pushed her out of a fashion show at the last moment.
Guobadia told a similar story on Thursday from her own interactions with the fashion star.

“What’s unfortunate about this story is that I had the same experience with Michael Costello, except as a model,” Guobadia wrote on her Instagram story in reference to Lewis’s accusations. “And [because] from this traumatic experience, it was unfortunately the end of my quest to become a model. “
The 32-year-old reality TV star said she “couldn’t take [sic.] embarrassed “by the ordeal and felt” very uncomfortable and inadequate “by the designer and his team.
She then shared the exact details of the incident.
“I was 23 and lived in LA with little more than a dream,” she wrote, according to Page Six. “I went to audition for Michael Costello’s Los Angeles Fashion Week where he complimented me on my body and my step on the catwalk. I was ecstatic!”

The star said she received an email with specific instructions for the next steps in the process, including what type of underwear to buy and details of the upcoming fashion show.
“When I arrived I had my Victoria[‘s] Secret bag in hand with the underwear we were asked to bring and we were told to queue for makeup, ”recalls Guobadia. “I see Michael and his sister talking in a corner and looking at me with that look on their faces as if I were the scum of the Earth. Then, in front of all the models and her team, they come to me and say, ‘Someone was supposed to call you. We don’t need you for the show and we don’t need anything to wear for you. ‘”
The star said the models in the area “gasped and covered their faces.”
“I was embarrassed and ashamed,” she added. “I ran outside and cried for two hours. I never auditioned to be a model again.”
