John Legend tried to break up with Chrissy Teigen Years Ago but she said NO!


John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are definitely one of our fave couples and we can’t see a world without the two of them together but in a recent interview John Legend revealed that he had actually once tried breaking up with the supermodel – years before they got married.

The couple, who have been together for nearly ten years and have a daughter together, almost broke up at one point during their relationship.

In a new interview, the 38-year-old singer said that he tried breaking up with Chrissy, but she wasn’t having any of it. The “breakup” lasted only for an hour and a half.


John Legend told The Guardian, “I was really stressed and busy. I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.’”

Talking about his relationship with Chrissy, he says “She pushes me to be funnier, not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder.”

John and Chrissy got married in Italy back in 2013.
