Even #couplegoals couples have trying times!

John Legend revealed that years ago he tried to dump his then-girlfriend/now-wife Chrissy Teigen—and she pretty much just shut him down.

The 38-year-old crooner admitted that their "breakup" lasted a whopping hour and a half. That's 90 minutes too long if you ask us!

"I was really stressed and busy," John told the funny (to us) story to The Guardian. "I was just like: 'I’d just be happier single right now,' and she was like: 'No.'" 

Yeah, not so much, John...

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."

It's clear that the good-humored gal still has her famous sense of humor about her man's past mistake.

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.'"

Good thing! Or else the Internet would be lacking one of Hollywood's most fun-loving couples and their too-cute kiddo!

In addition to admitting he had the audacity to dump the model, John did take a minute to gush about how his wife inspires him.

"She pushes me to be funnier, not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder," he said to the British publication.

In 2013, the couple had a lavish wedding ceremony in Lake Como, Italy. Prior to their extravagant affair, the two were actually wed in a secret and low-key courthouse wedding in New York City.

However, the secret newlyweds went all out for their big Italian event.

Chrissy had three dresses for the wedding and ceremony. She told E! News, "Every time I went in [to Vera Wang] for a fitting, I couldn't stop getting one."

She first wore an ivory strapless open back, V-neck ball gown with lifted tulle skirt and tiered flange, with hand-cut petal embroidered detail for the actual ceremony, before changing into a mermaid ivory gown that had a micro-pleated bodice and sheared organza full skirt for the reception, and then later switched up her look again for the after party, donning a crimson strapless mermaid gown.

Take a look at the couple's cutest pics...
