Chrissy Teigen has paid tribute to her dog Pippa who she said “died in her arms” on Thursday.

The model, TV personality and wife of singer John Legend posted a photo of herself with the 10-year-old French bulldog on Instagram and described her as a “sassy broad”.

In a post to her 34.9m followers, Teigen wrote: “Our beautiful little pippa just died in my arms, not long ago. she was 10, I remember picking her up in Gainesville and documenting our trip home.

“She was a sassy broad – loved her pearl necklace and never took shit from ANY new dog we brought in. Our road dog with Sade, a tour dog for years.

“We loved her so much. We love you sweet girl. I know you’re giving puddy hell up there. Thank you for giving us your whole life.”

Her musician husbandJohn Legend also shared a similar tribute on Instagram, describing the dog as “smart, fancy and didn’t take any sh*t.”

Legend wrote: “We’re going to miss our little Pippa. This pic is her living her best life: on the road with her dad, wearing pearls.

“We got her near Gainesville FL so I gave her my best impression of a southern accent whenever I spoke for her. She was smart, fancy and didn’t take any shit. She gave us so much joy for 10 years. We love you Pippa!”

Teigen’s post came just one day after she bemoaned being part of the “cancel club” following allegations of online bullying.

“Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race,” Teigen said.

“But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.”

She has largely vanished from social media since non-binary TV star Courtney Stodden accused her of brutally trolling them online when they were just a teen.
