John Legend Reveals His Past History of Cheating

John Legend sat down with Dax Shepard for a conversation, which turned to the topic of cheating on girlfriends.

Dax brought it up first, saying he had a “f–king deplorable” past with cheating.

John then responded, “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,” he said on Dax‘s Armchair Expert podcast. “When I started to get that attention, I loved it.”

“I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating,” he added. “I definitely was dishonest and selfish.”

“At a certain point, you just realize you’re happier being honest,” he said. “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.”

John and Chrissy are one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, and he would never cheat on her. He joked about it with Dax, saying, “Chrissy has 12 million Twitter followers. If I were to do anything, it would be career suicide. It would be terrible.”

John recently revealed the exact moment he knew Chrissy was the one.
