During an open and honest interview with actor Dax Shepard and Monica Padman, EGOT winner John Legend revealed that when he was in his twenties, he often cheated on women. He told Shepard, who also admitted to being a serial cheater before meeting Kristen Bell, it was only after meeting his wife, model Chrissy Teigen that Legend changed his ways.
As a guest on Shepard’s podcast, Armchair Expert, Shepard was the first to open up about being unfaithful in his past relationship. “I have a horrendous history of cheating. F**king deplorable,” Shepard said before referring to the songs Legend has written about cheating.
“Yes, I did have a history of [cheating]. Definitely in my 20’s. I think what happened for me, you go through a lot of your life in your teens and I was younger than everybody in high school and college, and so I just didn’t get a lot of girls. When I started to get that attention, I loved it. I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating. I definitely was dishonest and selfish… It was happening before I was famous.”-John Legend
And although Legend was adamant that he changed his way after meeting Teigen, Chrissy Teigen wasn’t completely pleased with her husband’s honesty.
Along with a screenshot of an article talking about the comments Legend made on the podcast, Teigen highlighted one of her husband’s quotes and issued a response.
“’Especially’??,” Teigen wrote. “The other sh*t is the 10’s and 30’s so u better be talking the tens, idiot.” Shortly before sharing the lighthearted tweet, Teigen posted other tweets about her son Miles and the longest sentence he ever spoke as well as a potty incident that ended with a turd being found on their coffee table and John using his hands to take it to the toilet.
Sadly as a result of sharing a very relatable parenting moment with her followers, Teigen started getting bombarded with hateful tweets from people who claim to be QAnon members. At one point, the trolls got so bad that Teigen briefly changed her Twitter to private.
“If Twitter doesn’t do something about this *actually scary* harassment, I am gonna have to go,” Teigen wrote in response to someone accusing her of “tormenting” her “suffering” children. The model later thanked her friends for helping her deal with the large amount of scary trolling she deals with on a regular basis.
