Politics ruined John and Kanye’s friendship
- John Legend and Kayne West used to be super close friends
- It wasn’t until a couple of years ago when politics got in the way of their friendship
- John shares how Kanye started distancing himself when he tried to run for President of the United States.
Kayne West and John Legend used to be close friends until politics and different viewpoints drew them apart. It all started a couple of years ago when Kanye West was fully committed and focused on becoming the new President of the United States. There have been numerous statements saying the two started distancing themselves due to Kanye’s support of Donald Trump, but John can confirm that wasn’t the case.
In an interview with The New Yorker, John shared the tension started when John didn’t support Kanyes’ presidential run. In the interview, he said, “He was very upset with me that I didn’t support him running for President, and that was the real impetus for us having a strain in our friendship. “I don’t know what will happen in the future. But he was very upset with me that I didn’t support him and I supported Joe Biden. It’s up to him whether he can get past that”.
