Linton was involved in controversy over claims she made in a book, in which she described volunteering in Africa as a teenager. In “Congo’s Shadow: One girl’s perilous journey to the heart of Africa” describes Linton’s time in Zambia in 1999.

Last August, Linton tagged a string of luxury fashion designers and showed her and her husband exiting a federal airplane after a trip to Kentucky. An offended Instagram user commented on the post, “Glad we could pay for your little getaway. #deplorable.”

The whole thing culminated in Linton issuing an apology through her publicist and deleting the Instagram post. She recently told Elle, she felt ‘stupid’ for her response of the deleted Instagram snap.
