She couldn’t stay away forever.

Chrissy Teigen made an appearance on Instagram over the weekend amid her cyberbullying scandal centered on cruel messages she sent to reality star Courtney Stodden years ago.

Teigen, who apologized to Stodden on May 12 for the old jabs, popped up in a photo on husband John Legend’s page that was snapped at their daughter Luna’s dance recital.

“So proud of our little dancer!” Legend captioned the pic of Teigen with her arm around the 5-year-old.

In the photo, the supermodel is seen smiling as she snuggles up to Luna, who is wearing a red dance costume for her first-ever recital.

Celeb pal Gwyneth Paltrow commented “She’s getting so big!” on the picture, while fans flooded the post asking Teigen — who has 34.9 million Instagram followers and 13.5 million Twitter followers — to return to social media.

“CAN CRISSY COME BACK TO SOCIAL MEDIA!!!! I MISS HER!!!!! ❤️,” one fan wrote.

“Chrissy , I know you must be struggling ..: I don’t know if you’ll even read this …. but stay positive, stay humble , and never give up. Your loved and your forgiven❤️,” another said.

A third wrote, “Let’s stop canceling people that make mistakes Let’s try and forgive and live with love you only live once ☮️.”

But other commenters said that all is not forgiven after Stodden — who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns — gave a recent interview claiming Teigen sent Stodden messages in the past encouraging them to kill themselves. Stodden says the cyberbullying took place when she gained fame at the age of 16 in 2011 after marrying a then-51-year-old Doug Hutchison.

“The people writing “WE MISS CHRISSY!”… imagine it was YOUR daughter she told to kill herself, all while preaching that kindness is important,” one commenter noted on Legend’s post. “She doesn’t need to come back 😂 we need less people like this, SPECIFICALLY in the public spotlight 🤦‍♀️.”

Teigen, 35, has stayed silent on social media since her Twitter apology to the 26-year-old model which read in part, “I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”

In the wake of the scandal, the supermodel dropped out of the Netflix comedy “Never Have I Ever” and lost a deal for her cookware line with Bloomingdale’s.
