Since returning to Twitter, Kanye has been sharing his thoughts non-stop, including his support for President Trump. This, has sparked concern about his mental health. John Legend reached out to Kanye via text, writing, “I hope you’ll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump…What you say really means something to your fans…Don’t let this be part of your legacy. You’re the greatest artist of your generation.” We know this is what the tweet said because, Kanye shared a screenshot of the convo on Twitter. Kanye, replied, “I love you, John, and appreciate your thoughts. You bringing up my fans or my legacy is a tactic based on fear used to manipulate my free thought.” The two seemed to end things lightly, however, once Legend realized Kanye was posting his texts. “Since you’re posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out haha,” Legend wrote, to which Kanye replied, “Haha. I love you, John.” Chrissy Teigen then weighed in by tweeting to Kim Kardashian, “Are we still doing dinner Friday or no?” Kim quickly replied, “Yes but maybe no phones.”
In the first time since being fired from NBC’s TODAY, Matt Lauer has broken his silence, saying “I have made no public comments on the many false stories. I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost. But defending my family now requires me to speak up. I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.” Lauer lost his job on November 29 after NBC received a “detailed complaint” about his behavior.
