The marriage between two of Hollywood's favorite stars—John Legend and Chrissy Teigen—may have never been! In a recent interview with The Guardian, Legend revealed that he once tried to end things with the model.
The singer shared that a while back, he and Teigen almost broke up. "I was really stressed and busy," he explained. "I was just like: 'I'd just be happier single right now,'" he added. His now-wife, however, wasn't having it. According to Legend, "she was like: 'No.'"
To show just how fine they are with their shocking breakup story, both celebs took to Twitter (as usual) to express their thoughts on the topic. After the interview was published, Legend shared an article about it, writing "11 years later, baby" with a crying-laughing emoji. Teigen decided to clarify the almost-split by explaining the situation. "It wasn't a typical breakup," she posted. "He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a winey face about everything and so yeah, I was like 'no.'"

In the interview, Legend also shared a little bit more about his wife. "She pushes me to be funnier," he said, "not because she's trying to, I think it's just being around her. And to be bolder." He also reminisced about meeting Teigen on the set of his music video for "Stereo." "It was this one-on-one video of just me and a girl, and she's my love interest in the video," Legend recalled. "We spent the whole day dancing together," he added, and the rest is history.
