Popular American musician, John Legend, has opened up about the strains in his relationship with Rapper Kanye West and why it ended.

In an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod on ‘The Axe Files’ podcast, the singer revealed that they were no longer friends due to their political differences.

Legend said he didn’t approve of his support of former US President Donald Trump and his ambition to run for office.

He added that Kanye wasn’t pleased with his lack of support and their relationship became too hard to maintain.
