Chrissy Teigen is known for her hot-and-heavy romance with husband John Legend. But Legend once tried to break up with her in the late 2000s.

“Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick. 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,” Teigen told Cosmopolitan.

Legend met Teigen, a model and now host of Lip Sync Battle, back in 2007 for his “Stereo” music video. They got engaged in December 2011, married in September 2013 and had daughter Luna Legend in April 2016

“I knew it came from a place other than us not working,” she continued, “I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake.’”

Teigen noted Legend’s modelizing tendencies, as the reason why they met in the first place. “I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer,” Tiegen said. “To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear. What’s funny is that I get along with everyone he’s ever been with. I end up really liking them. After I see them, I’ll tell him, ‘Oh, I was on-set with your ex today — it was fun!’ … It was before me, so it’s fine.”
