Host Dax Shepard commented “I have a horrendous history of cheating. F–king deplorable … And there’s all these great cheating songs on your albums, and I was like, ‘I see another fisherman at sea,’” during an interview on the Armchair Expert and after expressing his views he went on to ask John Legend if those songs were based on his own life.
“Yes, I did have a history of [cheating]. Definitely in my 20s,” replied Legend, 41. “I think what happened for me, you go through a lot of your life in your teens and I was younger than everybody in high school and college, and so I just didn’t get a lot of girls. When I started to get that attention, I loved it.”
I avoided ‘technically cheating’ by staying ill-defined in my relationship but it was actually cheating. I was certainly dishonest and greedy … It was before I was famous.
Things have changed for Legend since he met Chrissy Teigen, 34, who he married in 2013.
“At a certain point, you just realize you’re happier being honest. You’re happier being faithful and being in love with one person. At a certain point, I just decided that person was Chrissy. I decided I wasn’t gonna mess with somebody else anymore.”
Legend admitted that being in the spotlight is motivation for him to be on his best behavior when it comes to being a “celebrity couple.”
“I feel like it almost makes it less likely that I would do anything to f–k it up. Chrissy has 12 million Twitter followers. If I were to do anything, it would be career suicide,” he stated. “It would be terrible. It just gives you another reason to not f–k it up.”
Teigen received her massive thanks mainly to her fearless and playful nature as she posted a video of her husband naked while showering on Monday.
“Cravings” singer shared the 3-second clip on Instagram, showing two mothers in the foreground of their bathroom giggling as Legend showers with Teigen ‘s hand blocking his leg.
