Sometimes it takes a breakup to stay together!

On Monday, John Legend practically broke the Internet when he revealed that years ago he tried to dump his then-girlfriend/now-wife Chrissy Teigen years ago—and she responded by simply saying, "No."

The 38-year-old crooner spoke to The Guardian and admitted that their "breakup" lasted a whopping hour and a half.

"I was really stressed and busy," John told the publication. "I was just like: 'I’d just be happier single right now,' and she was like: 'No.'" 

A few hours after her hubby's interview hit, the outspoken lady, who has been with the singer for over a decade, took to Twitter to respond. The 31-year-old shared a link to the break-up story with a laugh-crying emoji and the caption, "11 years later, baby."


Chrissy, who shares daughter Luna Legend with her husband since 2013, also tweeted, "It wasn't a 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.'"

But those two aren't the only power couple that called it quits for a short time before getting back together for good. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, Prince William and Kate Middleton are just a few of the twosomes that had to break up to make up for good.
