John Legend Specifies Real Cause Of Kanye West’s Departure
John Legend has revealed the real cause of his and Kanye West’s breakup.
The erstwhile allies fell out while Ye was running for president in 2020 due to their divergent political ideologies. The Grammy Award-winning musician spoke on the subject in a recent interview with The New Yorker and said his first remarks on their fraying friendship were misinterpreted.
“Yeah, what it got described as was, we stopped being friends because he supported Trump, which was a mischaracterization of what I said,” Legend explained. “That was kind of the Rupert Murdoch version of the story — it was all over the New York Post and Fox News.”
According to legend, West was particularly irked by his backing of Joe Biden, the current president of the United States, rather than him.
“What I was saying was that he was very upset with me that I didn’t support him running for President, and that was the real impetus for us having a strain in our friendship,” he continued. “I don’t know what will happen in the future, but he was very upset with me that I didn’t support him and I supported Joe Biden. It’s up to him whether he can get past that.”
Kanye West shared a similar story when he appeared at Drink Champs last year, he said “Both John Legend and Big Sean, when I ran for office, got used quick by the Democrats to come at they boy that actually changed their life. And that’s some sell-out shit. And I don’t rock with neither of them.”
