Los Angeles - Chrissy Teigen has made her Twitter account private.

The Lip Sync Battle star is usually a prolific user of the microblogging site but has decided to only make her page available to followers she has approved because she is "not strong enough" anymore.

Asked if her account is now private, she tweeted: "Yeah. Not strong enough anymore."

But the 30-year-old beauty - who had earlier been tweeting her thoughts about the vice-presidential debate - insisted she hadn't made the decision after receiving unpleasant messages.

She added: 'It's not haters or trolls or generally mean people.

'"I just feel like I am absorbing bad shit 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."

The Sports Illustrated model recently admitted she is jealous of her 2.13 million followers because she wishes she could follow herself.

She wrote: "I am the best follow I know. I am jealous I'm not me and can't feel what it's like to follow me.

"I mean I'm jealous I'm not you

"I am me (sic)"

Alongside a picture of her screen showing the words she had typed, she wrote: "thank you, @instagram (sic)"
