John Legend Denies Being A Close Friend With Kanye West

Kanye West and John Legend used to be considered as good friends for quite some years but it seems they were not as close as we thought.

If you recall, John Legend was once signed to Kanye West’s ‘Good Music’ with John singing Ye’s hooks.

Kanye even helped produced Legend’s debut hit album ‘Get Lifted’ that propelled the singer on the map, and their families have spent holidays together.

Although, John Legend has never been in support of Kanye West support for Trump especially considering the fact that Trump has been at odds with Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, on social media.

John Legend was recently interviewed by ‘Vanity Fair’ and during their chat with the publication, Legend spoke about the state of his friendship with Kanye West.

“I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively,” Legend said. “But we were never the closest of friends.”

Then he dived into Kanye’s sudden interest in politics, “I think what was always challenging about it was Kanye has never been political,” he added. “I don’t think he knows one way or another what policies of Trump’s he likes,” Legend said.

“He just kind of embraced Trump’s blow-it-all-up spirit and the energy of himself being countercultural in supporting him,” He added.

And sometimes last year, Kanye and John had a falling out of sorts when Kanye violated their friendship. John Legend tried to talk some sense in him and then he posted their private chat on social media without permission.

They joked about it, but it appears that didn’t bode well for future conversations.
