John Legend says his relationship with Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was doomed by the rapper’s embrace of former President Trump and 2020 White House bid.

Legend, speaking on an episode of CNN’s “The Axe Files” podcast with David Axelrod released Thursday, said the pair weren’t “friends as much as we used to be” because “we publicly disagreed on his running for office and supporting Trump.”

West was a vocal backer of Trump while the former president was in office, including visiting him in the Oval Office. In 2020, West launched his own long-shot presidential campaign, running under the Birthday Party.

A fierce Trump critic, Legend said, “I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship, honestly.”

“He was upset that I didn’t support his run for presidency of the United States of America — for understandable reasons,” Legend said.
