*John Legend is defending his fiancée Chrissy Teigen after she was pummeled with Twitter threats for dissing Chris Brown’s lip synced performance Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards.

The model came under fire from #Team Breezy after she tweeted, “Why sing when you can dance.” For days to follow, Chrissy retweeted and entertained malicious comments, until she finally shot back in her own Twitter rant: “…I like some of his music too. YOU can like it. You CAN. But WHY the insane hate and ‘team’? Why can’t you just CHILL THE F*** OUT.”

She added, “You can even form these sentences at someone you don’t even know makes me so sad.”

Chrissy was most shocked at the harsh tweets from females. “John has gotten numerous comments about him needing to ‘leash me’ or ‘control’ me. FROM WOMEN. Please stop this. It’s so sad,” she tweeted. “What are you even doing this for? Some good music and dancing? Good god. DO BETTER. Ennnnnd.”

John avoided the drama until Chris Brown tweeted to his fans, “Team Breezy! Lets stop sending death threats! I know ya’ll bout that life but it’s the wrong message! Ur turning haters into victims! And that only furthers their pointless existence.”

John defended his fiancée writing on his own account. “Personally, I don’t think @chrissyteigen’s existence is pointless. Not anyone else who dares criticize a performance,” he tweeted. “Every artist has to be ok with the fact that some people won’t like their work. All critics aren’t haters.”

The piano-playing crooner continued, “And don’t ever tell me to put my ‘bitch on a leash.’ She’s a grown woman with her own mind and her own opinions and this is not 1950.”
