John Legend Has Revealed Why HE BROKE UP With Chrissy Teigen

If there has ever been a couple to be jealous of, it’s John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s.
But according to Legend, it wasn’t always smooth sailing.

The singer, who started dating Teigen more than a decade ago has revealed that he had once tried to break up with her after he was overwhelmed by work.

“I was really stressed and busy,” he told The Guardian.

“I was just like, ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like, ‘No’.”

Luckily, her bold approach worked and their relationship was back on track within half an hour.

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

The stars met on the set of Legend’s single Stereo in 2007 when the Sports Illustrated model was cast as his love interest, and they tied the knot in Lake Como in 2013.

They’re now parents to 16-month-old daughter, Luna.
