DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Teigen who have so far been unavailable for comment.
Denica, 33, – real name Reprudencia Sonkey – has made the claims in an interview with The Sun amid Chrissy’s growing cyberbullying scandal where she once told Courtney Stodden to commit suicide in past tweets from 2011.
Fight? Chrissy Teigen accused of ‘pushing Cameroonian singer Dencia TWICE’ at 2016 Grammy Awards and ‘yanked phone out of assistant’s hands’ (pictured at the event)
The singer claims Chrissy became ‘aggressive over a misunderstanding’ at the music event in Los Angeles, alleging: ‘My assistant at the time took his phone out to record a video of me as I walked the carpet. Chrissy literally yanked his phone out of his hand and said, ‘Don’t record me!”‘
Denica claims that Chrissy, who was pregnant at the time, was not in the phone’s view and alleges that she did not know who the model was.
The singer then alleges that Chrissy ‘pushed’ her as she arrived on the red carpet and then pushed her again minutes later.

Support: On Friday, John Legend hit back at Michael Costello’s claims of bullying
‘She pushed me when I got off the carpet after them! I almost fell flat on my face,’ she claims.
The allegations comes after Chrissy’s husband leaped to her defense on Friday, breaking his silence over recent claims from Project Runway star Michael Costello.
John tweeted: ‘Chrissy apologized for her public tweets, but after her apology, Mr Costello fabricated a DM exchange between them. This exchange was made up, completely fake, never happened.’
Adding: ‘Honestly I don’t know why anyone would fake DMs to insert themselves in this narrative, but that’s what happened.’
The latest: Reps for Chrissy Teigen, 35, on Thursday said that a series of direct messages designer Michael Costello, 38, posted online, claiming to be from the model, are not authentic
Chrissy’s team has alleged that the 2014 Instagram direct messages between Michael and the model that he shared earlier this week are either fake, or had at least been manipulated.
Teigen’s rep told Business Insider that the DMs – which the fashion designer, 38, said Teigen, 35, sent him in 2014 – had aesthetic inconsistencies with the timeframe of the alleged communications.
Costello took to Instagram Monday saying that Teigen – based on a faulty belief that he had posted racist messages online – torpedoed his fashion career and left him with suicidal ideations, after taunting him in DMs.
A rep for Teigen told Business Insider that there was manipulation in the messages Costello put online earlier this week
Backstory: Costello said that Teigen tormented him amid a misunderstanding that he had used a racial slur online, which he denied, and tried to explain to her at the time to no avail
Meanwhile, Costello’s team told DailyMail.com on Thursday: ‘The fact that Chrissy Teigen’s team is desperately trying to prove the DM’s are fake and attempts to discredit Michael Costello, a victim of trauma and bullying by Chrissy Teigen both online and offline, confirms that she remains the same bully, despite her public apology.’
The statement added: ‘Michael Costello is only one of the many victims who are living with long-lasting, unhealed traumas from Chrissy Teigen’s decade-long bullying behavior.
‘Chrissy Teigen’s team has yet to reach out to us, or any of her other victims.’
He initially said that both Teigen and her stylist Monica Rose had went ‘out of their way to threaten people and brands that if they were in any shape or form associated with me, they would not work with any of them.’
‘Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past’: Chrissy Teigen (seen last month) has written a blog post to apologize for her past bullying tweets
Costello said that his efforts to plead his case to Teigen and Rose were for naught.
He said that in trying to get them ‘to see the whole story before believing a false narrative a former disgruntled employee cast upon me, they didn’t give me the time of day.’
In the wake of the exchange, Costello said that he ‘didn’t see the point of living’ with his career in disarray.
‘There was no way I can ever escape from being the target of the powerful elites in Hollywood.’
Costello said he is ‘not okay,’ adding, ‘I may never be okay, but today, I am choosing to speak my truth.’
Teigen has been the target of backlash since abusive tweets by the star, originally made in 2011, resurfaced online, including one that urged then 16-year-old TV personality Courtney Stodden (pictured above in 2019), who identifies as non-binary, to kill themselves
Costello captioned the post urging his followers not to respond with vitriol toward Teigen and Rose, stressing that it was his own personal process to move forward.
‘You do not have to say anything mean or hurtful about them in the comments I am trying every day to love myself and forget this,’ he said. ‘This is step 1.’
The designer received supportive words from April Love Geary, Olivia Culpo, Audrina Patridge and LeAnn Rimes among others amid his public revelation.
He later told TMZ that he doesn’t wish ‘ill’ on Teigen, saying: ‘We are all works in progress and we deserve the opportunity to prove that we can do better.’
Relentless: In one tweet Teigen told the non-binary reality star to ‘take a dirt nap,’ which is slang for death
Hatred: In another tweet she told Stodden ‘I hate you,’ and insinuated that drugs must be responsible for her affected speech
‘Lindsay [Lohan] adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone,’ read the tweet dated January 16 2011
‘But progress takes time. We must show through actions that we have changed. After all, action speaks much louder than a 10-minute apology written on a notepad.’
Costello’s post comes as Teigen has come under fire in recent weeks for cruel posts on Twitter aimed at Stodden, Lindsay Lohan, Quvenzhané Wallis, and others.
In 2011, Teigen published a barrage of tweets telling then-16-year-old Stodden, who had just married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison, to ‘go to sleep forever’.
Stodden said this was only part of the picture, saying Teigen would also ‘privately DM me and tell me to kill myself.’
Stodden incurred relentless bullying both publicly and in private from Teigen, who tweeted at the then-teen in 2011: ‘My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby’, followed by: ‘go. to sleep. forever.’
Old tweets from 2013 have also resurfaced in which she described nine-year-old Oscar nominee Wallis as ‘cocky’ and called Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, then 21, a ‘wh***’.
