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."

That whole presidential bid was a manic joke. Somebody somewhere must have Koonye back on his meds. This is the most quiet he has been in years.

Where you been??? he's laid low rn after 100 public tantrums about Pete/Kim/Kids.....definitely taking his meds but he still doing snake shit like canceling his Rolling Loud set only to pop up on Durk's set.


On topic, they were never real friends. Industry ppl are users & they'll use each other until they have no more use for them.....Disposals

Well Koonye is always going to be up to something but at least he's calmed his azz down. It was getting to the point I was expecting an announcement of his death by suicide at any moment. He had been on a never ending manic episode for 3 years. Shit was getting serious so kudos to whoever got him to take his meds. Now if the y could get him to take a shower and ditch those fugly clothes and boots.

John Legend has nerve. Still be singing at the church picnic if it wasn't for Ye

Phuk both of these clowns. Ain't neither one of them here for Black people. They want people to think they are but it's all BS. Both of them need to focus on making music and just shut up.

@10:57 AM... You hit the nail on the head. Kanye is responsible for Legend's career. You can silently not support Ye's support for Donald Trump but show some loyalty to the man who helped you get on!

Show some loyalty while he’s supporting Donald Trump? That kind of thinking is what’s wrong with black people.

I'm not following crazy or disrespect - I don't care if they plucked me from extreme, abject poverty - no one deserves the kind of loyalty that can (& would) destroy our political process; especially when so much was at stake (Hitler 2.0). If anything, that makes me respect Legend more, because it means he has standards and integrity.

Kanye has a mental illness, and he refuses to accept the fact that that condition comes with a responsibility; daily medication intake, and therapy. I wish him well, but, everyone knows his condition can cause maniac episodes if he isn't taking care of himself. Hopefully, Ye will get to a point where he can fully understand how his actions have pushed ppl away and he can make amends with those ppl.

The only good thing about Kanye's silence is that, Kim is getting less attention lmao. Seriously, I saw that People Magazine had several (superficial) articles on Kim, for 10+ hours, and the top 3 trending stories did not include her lmao. I know that has to piss her off. I just hope black ppl and yt ppl continue to pay her dust.

Don’t blame him, maybe one day they’ll get back like Ye and Jay.

Move on John, Kanye has lost more than your approval and show biz friendship.
Only thing John need to do is keep his wife and her over sharing ass off social media everyday. Just when Rihanna dropped her bedazzled belly here comes this one

@11:18 Right...thats like saying i should be complacent about bullshit bc you put me on. How about we can respect each others different opinions & still carry on like "real" adults...

@11:37 i couldn't agree more....

Now if you can divorce your trashy attention seeking ugly ass wife. She's about to exploit this baby for maximum publicity to get uncancelled.

Kanye fucked up. lost his wife to skeet trying to help Trump. I would have called my boy privately like john did. It was Kanye that took it to the streets. Kanye is deranged. I would just keep it business until i no longer had any with him then move on.

I don't care for either of these closeted qweens.

Kim was supporting Trump when she asked him to release a slew of prisoners. Kim hasn't asked Biden to release anyone. John Legend needs to shut up and mind his alcoholic wife doesn't fall off the wagon.

John is not going to f*ck up his EGOT or his good boy image in Hollywood for KW deranged outburst. I agree, he has enough to deal with his Apple Pie face wife. The short bus is circling around her block looking for her, as we speak. He could lose money dealing with this hoe.
