That One Time John Legend Tried to Dump Chrissy Teigen

They may look like the perfect couple on social media, but even John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have their struggles. For example, one time they had a disagreement over whether Legend was going to break up with Teigen. Yes, you read that right.

Legend spoke The Guardian about the hilarious fight that happened back when he and Teigen first started dating in 2006. He wanted to end things, and Teigen basically shut him down. “I was really stressed and busy,” Legend explained. “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.'”

They did end up breaking up, Legend added, but only for a little over an hour. Teigen, who kind of rules Twitter, was quick to weigh in on the social media platform with some more details from her side of the story.

“It wasn’t a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like ‘no,'” she wrote.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard this story. As you might remember, Teigen told her side of it in an interview with Cosmopolitan last year.

“Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick,” she explained at the time. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.'”

She continued, “That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working… I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake.'”
