In an interesting twist of events, John Legend revealed that he tried to breakup with his then-girlfriend/now-wife Chrissy Teigen – and homegirl was NOT having it.

The 38-year-old crooner admitted that their “breakup” lasted an hour and a half. “I was really stressed and busy,” John told the funny story to The Guardian. “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.'”

A few hours after hubby’s interview hit, Chrissy, who has been with John for over a decade, took to Twitter to respond. The 31-year-old shared a link to the break-up story with a laugh-crying emoji:

It’s great to see that the she still has a good sense of humor about her man’s past mistake. Chrissy, who shares a daughter Luna Legend with her husband since 2013, also said that “It wasn’t a a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like ‘no.'”

And that’s the story of how John and Chrissy became one of Hollywood’s most fun-loving couples.

In addition to admitting that he had plans to dump the model, John did talk about how his wife inspires him – “She pushes me to be funnier, not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder,” he said.

Either way, we’re glad that Chrissy put up a fight when she needed to!
