R&B singer John Legend and Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen may tie the knot later this year, but the tabloids tried to derail their engagement earlier this month when they reported that Legend had cheated on his fiancee.
Tegien took to Twitter when the news broke to defend her man, tweeting:
“Just read John cheated on me and in the über-credible Post. I’m just heartbroken as it’s definitely not typical Post bullsh*t, she tweeted before firing more shots at The New York Post, which started the drama. “The @nypost is normally so kind to me. And I am normally not the one to use the term sh*t rag so I guess we’re both a little off today.”
“Gonna buy a parrot for the sole reason of it shi*ting on the Post every day. Also the singing and companionship,” she later added.
During a sit down interview with the model to discuss her new show, Model Employee, Teigen shared with HipHollywood why she addressed the cheating rumors via Twitter, and how she felt about the false reports. “I have this thing about justice and proving people wrong and getting my point out there,” Teigen shared.
“It was just such a ridiculous thing to put out there. We are fine. Why would you ever try and put something out there that would hurt somebody’s relationship? That’s malicious and mean … I was never mad at him at any point, it was just the fact that people would come to me and say, ‘Hey is this true?’ No it’s not true,” Chrissy explained.
