Chrissy Teigen Says John Legend Nearly Broke Up With Her
Whoever coined the term "relationship goals" likely had perfect couple and new parents Chrissy Teigen and John Legend s in mind, but Teigen admits there's one point at which Legend nearly kicked her to the curb.
The couple, who began dating in 2007 before marrying in 2013, got into a particularly grim argument early on in their relationship, Teigen told Cosmpolitan in a new interview published today (November 3). In hindsight, it's a funny memory, but she admits that it wasn't really a laughing matter at the time.
"Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick," Teigen recalled. "He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, 'I can’t be in a relationship right now.' 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.'"
And Teigen said that when she began dating Legend, she was completely unaware of his former dating reputation — namely, that he'd gone out with a bunch of her industry peers.
"I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer," she noted. "To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear. 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."
