Not even John Legend can talk sense into Kanye West.
The friends and collaborators, who are tight enough to go on Waffle House dates with their wives, are now in a public dispute about West’s Donald Trump love during in his wide-ranging Twitter rant on Wednesday. Legend first posted several tweets online reacting to West’s support of the president. (West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, also said she disagreed with her husband.) Apparently, Legend — or “JL” — then reached out privately to West to ask him to reconsider all the “MAGA” talk. West not only wouldn’t back down, but he took their private text exchange and posted it on Twitter today.
Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, is the Twitter queen, so of course she was asked about it. She made it clear she didn’t have much on the topic. She also made it clear that her husband wasn’t aware that West was going to post their conversation online.
