The beautiful friendship between John Legend and Kanye West has come to an end.
While Legend insists it has nothing to do with the singer’s support of Trump, it is clear that this did have a huge impact on ending their close friendship.
The artists who collaborated on many hits, and used to be great friends, have drifted apart during President Trump’s time in office.
Things started going wrong when West publicized their private messages over his support of Trump.
John thinks that West ‘betrayed’ him and his own fans by endorsing Trump and ‘destroyed’ his legacy.
However, Kanye and Trump’s friendship goes back way to before he entered the White House.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka was the one who sparked this bond after she attended one of West’s concerts in 2009.
They got on well, so they kept in touch after that.
Kanye gave a shout out to Donald in his song So Appalled, with the lyrics: “Balding Donald Trump taking dollars from y’all”
Ivanka was very much pleased after that.
Trump didn’t attend Kanye’s wedding to Kim Kardashian in 2014, and nobody knows if he was invited.
“I certainly wish them the best of luck. I know them well, and they’re both very nice people,” Trump said.
Even though he did not vote, Kanye said if he had, he would have voted for the Republican candidate.
“[Voting for Trump] don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter; that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights; that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage, that don’t mean I don’t believe in these things because that was the guy I would’ve voted for,” yelled West.
“If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.”
