The 28-year-old, who is married to John Legend, told DuJour magazine that during a shoot for Forever 21 when she was ‘much younger’, she was suddenly told to leave because she was ‘too fat’.

‘I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo,’ she recalls. ‘And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, “You need to leave right now.
