Chrissy Teigen on That Time John Legend Tried to Break Up with Her: 'He Was Being a Whiny Face'
Chrissy Teigen says John Legend was being a "whiny face" when he (unsuccessfully) tried to break up with her
Both Teigen, 31, and 38-year-old Legend have opened up about the time the singer attempted to break up with Teigen. But now, years later, they can both laugh about that turbulent time in their relationship.
The supermodel tweeted on Monday tweeted an article about the short-lived breakup, writing, “11 years later, baby.”
It was Legend’s recent interview with The Guardian that prompted Teigen’s trip down memory lane.
“I was really stressed and busy,” he told the publication of the rough patch. “I was just like, ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like, ‘No.’ ”
The split lasted for less than a day (as Teigen previously recalled), and the couple were quickly back together.
“She pushes me to be funnier,” he says. “Not because she’s trying to. I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder.”

Teigen talked previously about the brief breakup in last year’s December issue of Cosmopolitan, revealing that she and her husband laugh about the ordeal now.
“I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake,’ ” she said.
