John Legend Admitted To Cheating ‘’A Lot’’ In His Past Relationship

John Legend and Dax Shepard are not proud of everything in their past. The R&B singer was a guest on the Parenthood star’s podcast, Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard, and during their talk, the men both admitted to having cheated in former relationships. 

John Legend opens up about how he started running around on women. “I think what happened for me, personally, you go through a lot of your life in your teens — and I was like the ‘two years younger kid than everybody’ in high school and college, and so I just didn’t get a lot of girls when I was younger,” he explained. “When I started to get that attention, I loved it. I just ate it up.”

John said he compromised the infidelity in his head by not labeling the relationships. “I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating,” he told Dax Shepard. “I definitely was dishonest and selfish and just enjoyed this new attention I was getting. It was happening before I was famous but when I was kind of on my way.”

The “All of Me” singer is now happily married to Chrissy Teigen and a father of two, and shares what the turning point was for him. “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 anybody else anymore.”

The 41-years-old singer stressed, “It’s so much easier. Your whole life is lighter. When you’re able to be honest with a person and you aren’t hiding texts …your mind is freer.”

He also added that the attention on his marriage to Chrissy makes him less stressed. “I feel like it makes it even more less likely that I would f**k it up,” he explained. “Chrissy has however many million Twitter followers. If I were to do anything, it would be career suicide. It would be terrible. It just gives you another reason to not f**k it up.”

Here’s more with John and Chrissy who are now, more than ever, “relationship goals.”
