Grammy award-winning singer/ songwriter/producer and actor John Legend has finally spoken out in depth about his fall out with long term friend fellow award winning artist and entrepreneur Kanye West.
The musician did an interview where he revealed the biggest problem was not even them supporting opposing sides but mostly Kanye's ideologies as well as the huge fact that John did not back up Kanye when he announced his bid to run for office.
The ' All of Me' hit-maker said, "I don’t feel like politics should be everything in your relationships, and your relationships with people shouldn’t only be determined by who they voted for.
But I do believe that certain things you believe in are indicators of your character, and obviously that will affect your friendships."
He went on to add that for him one's moral compass and values really do matter no matter whom you choose to be politically affiliated with,
"I don’t want to live a life that’s so consumed by politics that it’s the sole determinant of who can be my friend and who can’t. But values matter and character matters and moral compass matters."
On the main reason on why the two were not cool anymore, John said it's more about the fact that Kanye felt that John had personally betrayed him since John decided to endorse and get behind president elect Joe BIden and his vice president Kamala Harris instead of getting behind Kanye's presidential campaign.
The father of two ( more of three since he and wifey Chissy Teigen are expecting baby number 3) finished off by revealing that he had no beef with the 'Mercy' hit-maker if he wanted to bury the hatchet and mend their friendship.
John and Kanye were such amazing friends with their families occasionally hanging out and sending each other extravagant gifts.
John even defended Kanye back in 2015 when the rapper walked on stage interrupting Beck when he won 'Album of the year' Grammy award.
