Chrissy Teigen reveals name confusion

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen

"Last name is tie-gen, not tee-gen". During an August interview with Beats 1, Grande said her last name and pronounced it as "Gran-dee", as opposed to "Grahn-day".

Chrissy Teigen isn't the only star whose name is constantly mispronounced.

"Her voice is hurting", Legend explained to ET, adding that fans can continue to pronounce her last name "Tee-gen", despite her recent confession that it's actually "Tie-gen".

Teigen beamed as she posed in a metallic Zuhair Murad dress, but one Twitter follower seemed to take issue with her appearance.

There are many pronunciations that are debated on a daily basis; do you say scone as in cone or scone as in gone?

Led command approves South Korean border crossings into North Korea
The launch comes days before the leaders of the two Koreas are to meet in Pyongyang for their third summit this year. Trump and Kim Jong Un pledged to denuclearize the Korean peninsula at their historic Singapore meeting.

Off camera, her mother confirmed it with a "Yep!"

"Just call her Teigen; it's fine", Legend said.

Teigen even admitted, "I know".

The 32-year-old model has been left with a horrendous bruise on her knee after she took a tumble down a flight of stairs and now she's anxious that she won't be able to walk properly in her dress at the prestigious ceremony on September 18. "I'm bored to loss of life in residing this lie", she said in the video. And clearly, even if she isn't afraid to criticize Donald Trump, she hasn't been making an effort to tell people how to say her surname the correct way. "It's Tie-gen. Isn't it, mom?" Ancestry.com has that Teigen comes from the Old Norse word teigr, which means "strip of land".

Chrissy Teigen wowed on Monday night's gold carpet for the Emmys, but that didn't stop the internet from making comments about her body. Chrissy didn't even have the energy to give a massive response to that one, and instead simply replied, "breathe, chrissy. man, you guys are brutal".
