John Legend Has Revealed That Kanye West’s Political Views Ultimately Led To The Downfall Of Their Friendship
For many years, the two musicians were close friends and frequent collaborators. John even signed with Ye's record label when it first started in 2004.
However, the All Of Me singer acknowledged in a recent interview with CNN's The Axe Files that his friendship with Ye had hit a snag because of the rapper's politics, specifically his support for former US president Donald Trump.
I genuinely believe that we publicly disagreed on his running for office and his support of Trump, which is why we aren't as close as we once were, John said.
“I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship," she said.
John added that the Touch The Sky musician was “upset that I didn’t support his run for the presidency for understandable reasons."
The host then pointed out that John was “not alone in that”, to which he said: “I wasn’t alone in that, but, you know, he was not happy about that." And we really haven’t been close since then. "
Despite having been a supporter of Trump throughout his presidency, Ye ultimately chose to run against him as an independent candidate in the 2020 US presidential election.
