john legend clarifies his strained relationship with Kanye West.
The “All of Me” singer, 43, opened up about what really caused a rift in his close friendship with the donda rapper, who was a strong supporter of donald trump before deciding to run against him and Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
“What he was described as, we stopped being friends because he was supporting Trump, which was a misinterpretation of what I said,” Legend explained during an interview with the New Yorker published on September 4. “It was a bit Rupert Murdoch version of the story – it was everywhere New York Job and Fox News.”
The caption said what really happened was West got upset when the Oscar-winning actor didn’t support him when he ran for president, adding that “it was the real impetus for us to have tension in our friendship.”
“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but he was very angry with me that I didn’t support him and I supported Joe Biden,” he continued. “It’s up to him whether he can get over this.”
