Everyone already knows that model Chrissy Teigen is essentially a perfect human specimen. She’s always outspoken about her opinions (like Instagram’s policy against female nipples), her hilarious Twitter feed should be required reading for all women, and she even has her own damn cookbook! Essentially, it’s Chrissy Teigen’s world right now, and we just live in it.
Which makes it all the more bizarre that Chrissy’s husband, musician John Legend, actually attempted to call their relationship quits at one point.
Like … John, what were you thinking??
Teigen explains the relationship incident in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan.”Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick,” she says. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now’.”
Which is kind of silly, because what did he expect Teigen to do, hitchhike back home? (I clearly have no idea how music tours actually work.)
Fortunately, Legend quickly realized the error of his ways.
“That lasted for one day,” she continues. “Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working … I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake.’”
Teigen also says that she’s totally accepting of Legend’s previous relationships, and acknowledges the reality that, working in the entertainment industry, she’s bound to run into her husband’s former paramours from time to time.
“I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer,” she says. “To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear. What’s funny is that I get along with everyone he’s ever been with. I end up really liking them. After I see them, I’ll tell him, ‘Oh, I was on-set with your ex today — it was fun!’ … It was before me, so it’s fine.”
Which gives us yet another reason to envy Chrissy: she has her sh*t together enough to know that you pick your battles — and any jealous feelings about a partner’s past relationships just isn’t worth the time or energy.
