Kanye West Presidential Bid Ended Friendship with John Legend

Back in 2020 former G.O.O.D Music artist John Legend vocally opposed Kanye West's run for president and publicly called him out for trying help Donald Trump win the election [click here if you missed that]. 

Their relationship hasn't been the same since...

From ET
"We aren’t friends as much as we used to be," Legend said during an appearance on The Axe Files podcast with CNN's David Axelrod. "I honestly think because we publicly disagreed on his running for office, his supporting Trump. I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship."
"He was upset that I didn’t support his run for presidency of the United States of America -- for understandable reasons," Legend explained. "I wasn’t alone in that, but, you know, he was not happy about that. And we really haven’t been close since then."
