3:30 PM PT -- Sources connected to Chrissy tell TMZ ... the break-up with Target was a mutual and amicable decision reached way back in December.
We're told she launched the cookware line exclusively with Target in 2018, but late last year, they decided to end the exclusivity. Now, Chrissy's hawking her cookware through e-commerce, most notably on her own website ... and through several other retailers.
All of these business moves were in motion long before Courtney, rightfully, raised their issues with Chrissy's treatment of them.
The retail giant's website shows her "Cravings by Chrissy Teigen" line of cookware has been wiped out. Target's move appeared to come as Chrissy was owning up to her past abusive behavior -- DMing to suggest Courtney kill themself -- issuing an apology on Twitter.
Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that...
However, Target sources say the line wasn't just removed from their website this week -- we're told it was yanked last month. It should be noted, Chrissy's 3 cookbooks are still available on Target's website.
You'll recall, Courtney first called out Chrissy back in March, telling us they felt Chrissy is a hypocritefor quitting Twitter over negativity on the platform.
Courtney pointed out Chrissy had, years ago, heavily bullied them on Twitter. However, it turns out it's just coincidental Target dropped Chrissy's cookware from its website the very next month.
In any event, you can still find those products in other retail outlets -- and some Target brick-and-mortar stores still have inventory too.
