Falynn claims Michael and his sister approached her in front of all the other models and asked her to leave the show.
Falynn posted her allegations to her Instagram Stories on Thursday as a reaction to current controversy surrounding Michael and Leona.
‘What’s unfortunate about this story is I had this same experience with Michael Costello, except as a model. And bc of this traumatic experience, unfortunately, it was the end of my pursuit to become a fashion model. I just couldn’t bare the embarrassment. Him/his team made me feel very uncomfortable and inadequate.’
‘I was ecstatic!’ Falynn said she was thrilled to be selected by Michael himself to walk in his event
‘I was 23 years old living in LA with not much but a dream. I went to audition for Michael Costello’s LA Fashion Week where he complimented me on my body and my runway walk. I was ecstatic! I received an email with a list of underwear to purchase and instructions for the show. I’m thinking to myself I’m 5’6 and have been chosen to WALK! Which I never thought would happen for me.’
‘When I arrived, I had my Victoria’s Secret bag in hand with the underwear we were instructed to bring and was told to wait in line for makeup. I see Michael and his sister talking in a corner and looking at me with this look on their faces as if I were the scum of the Earth.
‘Then, in front of all of the models and his team, they come over to me and say, “Someone was supposed to call you. We don’t need you for the show and have nothing for you to wear.”

Speaking up: Falynn posted her allegations to her Instagram Stories on Thursday as a reaction to current controversy surrounding Michael and Leona
‘All of the models gasped and covered their faces. I was embarrassed and ashamed. I ran outside and cried for two hours. I never auditioned to model again. It pains me to hear that Leona Lewis experienced such trauma. I pray this was a learning opportunity for Michael and his team.’
While Michael has not addressed Falynn’s allegations, he has apologized to Leona for the experience she had with him, admitting it came as a surprise to hear about as she has continued wearing his dresses since the alleged experience she had with him in 2014.
‘If I did unintentionally hurt you and and you continued to support me, I want to apologize to you directly. This caught me by surprise, I am completely blindsided, as you have always looked fabulous in my gowns, and I thought you truly loved them,’ he wrote in his lengthy apology to Leona, who has since thanked him for the note.
Coming forward: Falynn posted her recollections of the alleged event on her Instagram Stories
Her allegations came after Michael said he had suicidal ideations after Chrissy and her stylist Monica Rose blacklisted him from the industry and 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.’
Costello told TMZ he’s still waiting on an apology from Chrissy, who has been in the midst of controversy over bullying allegations.
He admitted to the site: ‘I do not wish ill on anyone. We are all works in progress and we deserve the opportunity to prove that we can do better. 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.’
