John Legend Blames Falling Out with Kanye West on Support for Trump, Bid for Presidency

Left-wing pop star John Legend has spoken publicly about his falling out with Kanye West, blaming West’s support for President Donald Trump and subsequent bid for the presidency for the failure of their friendship.

John Legend addressed his relationship with Kanye West in an  interview on the Axe Files podcast, hosted by CNN personality and former Obama administration official David Axelrod.

“Well, you know, we aren’t friends as much as we used to be because, I honestly think because we publicly disagreed on his running for office, his supporting Trump,” Legend said. “I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship, honestly.”
