“Kanye and I aren’t friends as much as we used to be”- John Legend Reveals He Broke His Friendship with Kanye West For Running President

Kanye West and John Legend have been associated together since West was a producer on Legend’s debut album back in 2004.

Sadly, for the two friends, the last couple of years have been a little rocky. Because of differences in their political beliefs, the two industry giants decided to part ways.

John Legend and Kanye Dispute

Following their public fallout on their views of the Trump administration, the All of me fame hasn’t talked to the Heartless singer. Appearing on the latest episode of The Axe Files podcast, hosted by David Axelrod, Legend said,

“Kanye and I aren’t friends as much as we used to be, I honestly think because we publicly disagreed on his running for office, his supporting Donald Trump, I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship, honestly.”

The end of their friendship started soon after Kanye West ran for President back in 2020, and showed support to Trump. Something that wasn’t welcomed by a lot of celebrities. This led to the two disagreeing on Twitter and West posting a private text that Legend had sent him. “I wasn’t alone in that, but, you know, he was not happy about that. And we really haven’t been close since then,” he added.

Respect Still There- John Legend

But there’s not all hate from John Legend’s side. He still respects the international star for his honesty and blatant transparency of how he is. The soon-to-be father said,

“I think he’s been very open with who he is and his struggles with mental health, and he’s very real, honestly. So I think there’s not a lot about him that people don’t get … Like he’s been pretty upfront with his opinions, his struggles, all the things that he’s dealing with. And I think what you see with him is pretty much what you get.”
