Chrissy Teigen Once Thought She and John Legend Wouldn’t Last, Says She’s Friends with His Exes
There’s no denying that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are literally perfect for each other, which is why it comes as a complete shock to hear that their relationship almost ended before it ever really began!
Teigen graces the cover of the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, in which she confesses that Legend once tried to break up with her early on in their relationship. “I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick. He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now,'” she reveals.
“That lasted for one day. Literally, a day,” she continues. “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.’”
And just in case you needed any further proof that Teigen and Legend are 100% perfect for each other, she goes on to admit she’s never been intimidated by Legend’s past. In fact, she’s even friends with some of his exes!
“I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer. To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear,” the model reveals. “What’s funny is that I get along with everyone he’s ever been with. I end up really liking them. After I see them, I’ll tell him, ‘Oh, I was on-set with your ex today — it was fun!’ … It was before me, so it’s fine.”
