John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have been together for 11 years now and their love is still stronger than ever. So it’s hard to imagine that at one time, the couple almost broke up.

In an interview with The Guardian, the Grammy-winning piano man revealed that he tried breaking up with Chrissy, but she wasn’t having it. The “breakup” lasted only for an hour and a half.

“I was really stressed and busy,” John recalled. “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.’”

On Tuesday (Sept. 5), Chrissy went on Twitter to confirm John’s story was true.
“It wasn’t a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like “no,’” she tweeted.

Chrissy further explained their brief breakup in a 2016 Cosmopolitan interview. “Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick,” she told the magazine. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.’ That lasted for one day.”

“I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake,'” she continued.

After reading John and Chrissy’s breakup story, fans on Twitter quickly posted up memes that best described how Chrissy said “no” to John. Check them out below.
