During an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” one caller asked Teigen if it was “awkward at all between John and Kanye at your baby shower after Kanye posted John’s texts about Trump?”
The fan was referring to West posting text messages between him and Legend in regards to their opposing views on President Donald Trump. The rapper has been outspoken about his support of Trump, while Legend and Teigen have expressed their contempt.
In response to the question, Teigen said that the “All of Me” singer wasn’t deeply affected by the disagreement.
“John had to live with me for like, 12 years now,” the model and cookbook author said. “Nothing fazes him, really. I like to get that awkwardness out of there. Let’s squash it, let’s talk. They’ve had a good conversation there. It really wasn’t. It’s hard for me to feel uncomfortable.”
When “WWHL” host Andy Cohen said that Legend “had to be pissed” that West posted their private conversation on Twitter, Teigen said: “He didn’t know that was going to happen, but also, he still stands by everything he said. It’s fine.”
In April, Kanye West posted screenshots of texts, where Legend told the rapper: “I hope you’ll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump. You’re way too powerful and influential to endorse who he is and what he stands for. As you know, what you say really means something to your fans. They are loyal to you and respect your opinion.”
Legend also encouraged the 41-year-old to not “let this be part of your legacy. You’re the greatest artist of our generation.”
In response, the “All Mine” rapper said: “I love you John and I appreciate your thoughts. You bringing up my fans or my legacy is a tactic based on fear used to manipulate my free thought.”
West added that he stood by his view.
“I respect everyone’s opinion but I stand my ground,” he said. “If you feel something don’t let peer pressure manipulate you.”
Following the disagreement, both musicians were seen smiling and taking a photo together at Teigen’s baby shower.
“We got love. Agree to disagree,” West wrote after sharing a snap of him and Legend.
