"We publicly disagreed on his running for office and supporting Trump," he said.

Kanye heavily supported Trump while he was in office, wearing his Make America Great Again hats and visiting him in the Oval Office.

The rapper believed by trusting God, he could lead American politics, furthermore announcing his 2020 presidential campaign on Twitter under the Birthday Party, according to the Hill.

“He was upset that I didn’t support his run for presidency of the United States of America — for understandable reasons,” Legend added.

According to the Ordinary People hitmaker, Kanye did not appreciate the lack of support he received from loved ones while on his campaign trail.

"I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship, honestly. Like, he’s been pretty upfront with his opinions, his struggles, all the things that he’s dealing with. And I think what you see with him is pretty much what you get,” Legend said about his old friend.
