As far as Hollywood friendships go, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's relationship with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is was up there. Chrissy and John attended their 2014 wedding in Italy, regularly had fancy dinner parties together, and would often sit alongside each other at big awards events when all eyes were on them.

However, things ended up turning ever so slightly frosty when Kanye wholeheartedly declared his support for US President Donald Trump. In fact, things became so painfully ice cold, the singer - who has made zero secret of the fact he's not Trump's biggest fan - seems to have now completely distanced himself from the rapper.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, John explained: "Kanye, if he’s for you, he’s a very ardent marketer and cheerleader."

He went on: "I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively. But we were never the closest of friends."

Ouch.

The 'All of Me' singer was also asked what he thought about Kim heading along to the White House once in May and then again in June to meet with Trump to discuss prison reform.

"It's a cheap win for [Trump]," he replied. "But the people being granted clemency are real people with families. So even if the clemency is won through his celebrity-whore tendencies, it's still helpful for that family and that person."

Much like John, Chrissy didn't have anything that positive to say about Kim's visit either.

"To be able to go in there and put whatever you hate about him aside to do this greater good for this person?" she asked. "I don't know if I could physically muster that smile and handshake."

Um, so we guess no more dinner parties at the Kardashian West abode then?
