Earlier today controversial daily newspaper, The New York Post published an article claiming that John Legend cheated on his 27-year-old supermodel fiancée, Chrissy Teigen. According to The Post, John and a few pals were paying at Acme when a spy spotted John following a blond woman to the bathroom after 1 am. The alleged eyewitness claims they saw John pull the unnamed woman into the bathroom.
“He was walking in, and just grabbed her arm and brought her with him.”
“They were in there a couple minutes. The same girl saw another hot guy and started talking to him,” another source said.
Another “witness” claims that they later overheard the blond telling a friend that she and John engaged in “a steamy make out session.”
Now John has yet to publicly respond to the rumors, but earlier this week Chrissy tweeted a subliminal message about other women trying to sleep with her man.
Ironically, during an exclusive interview with John earlier this week, he told us that he and Chrissy have finally set a wedding date and let us know that they will definitely be husband and wife by the end of this year.
“It will be this year. We’re not really discussing a date or location any further, but we do know when and where and it will be this year,” the “Who Do We Think We Are” singer revealed.
So, what are your Olivia Pope gut instincts saying about the allegations?
I’m Not Going To Desert Him Because Of A Mistake: John Legend Explains Why He Kept Rick Ross On His New Single
John Legend is gearing up for the release of his new album, “Love in the Future,” next month, and if you haven’t heard the leading single “Who Do We Think We Are,” you are definitely missing out. The soulful slow jam brings all types of sexay — much like the sensual video that accompanies it — and thankfully for the Springfield, OH, singer it didn’t bring controversy despite the feature rapper on the track, Rick Ross.
Madame Noire got a chance to chat with John Legend today and we asked him whether he considered removing Rozay from his new track in light of his rape lyric controversy on U.O.E.N.O and he told us plainly, “no.”
“The track was already out when that controversy happened,” John told us. “It was already done, released to radio, and we had already shot the video. Plus I felt like I wasn’t going to completely drop somebody I had been working with for years because they made a mistake. We’ve done a lot of great work together and he did make a mistake — he effed up — and he rightfully got criticized for it, but I’m not going to desert him completely because of that.”
John and Ross do have a rather long history together. John Legend appeared on Ricky’s track “Magnificent” off of his “Deeper Than Rap” album in 2009, and he was also featured on “Rich Forever” on Ross’s mixtape of the same name. Apparently the two might strike magic again this time around, if people are still tolerating Ross after his slip-up.
In other John Legend news, the singer told us he and fiancée Chrissy Teigan have set a date for their big day and they will be jumping the broom this year! John told us of the upcoming wedding ceremony:
“It will be this year. We’re not really discussing a date or location any further, but we do know when and where and it will be this year.”
Although we know the pair likes to keep the details of their relationship under wraps, we did ask the Grammy-nominated artist if he and his wife-to-be would ever consider doing a reality TV show. Thankfully, that answer was a “no” as well.
“We get presented with that all the time, but I just feel like that’s not for us,” he said.” Some people do fine with it, but it’s hard enough to be in a relationship in general. There are always challenge, but to live out those challenges on television every day I think is unnecessary and we’re going to stay out of that.
Smart move on their part.
Check out the video for John’s new single “Who Do We Think We Are” below, if you haven’t seen it yet. What do you think?
If you’re an R&B/Hip-Hop music lover, 2013 is gearing up to be an exciting year for music. Although no album is official until it actually hits the market, let’s keep our fingers crossed that most of these do. Here are nine albums to be released this year.
John Legend may have started as a singer and songwriter, but lately he has become a Hollywood deal maker. Six months ago he signed an exclusive deal with Universal Cable Productions. Now Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co. has made its first sale — to UCP-affiliated USA Network, reports The Hollywood Reporter. USA airs shows like Psych and Suits.
The cable network has already approved the script for The Edge, a drama about a Harvard Business School graduate named Jeff Cross who joins a financial firm called Edgeton Global (“The Edge” of the show’s name), where he uncovers the company’s secrets and gets caught up in an FBI investigation. Legend, his business partners Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius as well as a couple of writers are involved in the initial project.
Legend, you’ll recall was a judge on the singing competition show Duets, which was quickly cancelled. It was around that time that Legend signed this deal.
Who knew Legend would become a Hollywood force. Be on the lookout for The Edge. And his new album, which is due in June. Now if only he could get around to that wedding to Chrissy Teigen. The Sports Illustrated model told New York magazine’s The Cut blog that she has four wedding dresses to show for the year-plus-long engagement, but plans for the actual event haven’t taken shape.
As a busy celebrity couple, John Legend and fiancée, Chrissy Teigen find the need to escape the craze of their careers. While the two share a small pad in NYC, they showed off their beautiful home in Los Angeles to “Architectural Digest” magazine.

While I might be looking away for reasons I won’t say for fear of Alicia Keys stans coming for me, I must say the woman told us she’s “so bright she can burn your eyes. Better look the other way,” and she appears to be living up to every word of her track “Girl on Fire.”
After singing during President Obama’s Inaugural Ball and performing her own rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” during the Super Bowl this past Sunday, Alicia Keys has now been named the headlining performer for the NBA All-Star basketball game halftime show.
Fox broke the news, saying Alicia will have all eyes on her during the All-Star event February 17 in Houston. Unlike with Beyonce’s halftime show where way too many details were spilled before the event, so far no one seems to know what’s in store for A. Keys, buuuut I’d be willing to bet my next paycheck “Girl on Fire” will most definitely be on the tracklist — and an extended remix like “Dwywane Wade is on fiiiiiiiyyyyaaaahhhhhh.” Sigh. (Sorry, that song just follows me everywhere I go)
Aside from Alicia, there will also be some other major star power during the game. John Legend will perform the National Anthem and Ne-Yo will sing during the player introductions. Singer Gloria Reuben, who also played in “Lincoln,” will also perform the Canadian anthem.
Looks like the alleged criticism that Alicia was disrespectful to sit during her performance of the National Anthem Sunday isn’t stopping her game at all. I must say, I am still a smidge worried about her hitting some of those notes though.
Legalizing Weed? Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That! John Legend And Others Agree With Obama’s Marijuana Stance
John Legend, Russell Simmons, Danny Glover, Brad Pitt and filmaker Eugene Jarecki released joint statements in praise of President Barack Obama’s evolution on the enforcement of marijuana legislation on Wednesday, agreeing with Obama’s assertion that “we’ve got bigger fish to fry.”
The president was discussing recreational marijuana use in Colorado and Washington, two states that legalized recreational pot use by adults.
Pitt and company — executive producers of the Jarecki-directed film “The House I Live In” — released the following statement:

There’s nothing like a man, who can actually sing, crooning to you in the morning. And John Legend must know that. Which is why he penned, “Good Morning.” It’s a little slower than what we like for the morning, but we want today to be easy and breezy type of day. Are you feeling this one?
