‘Reality TV bad for relationships’

Comment on this story
iol tonight april 19 john legend REUTERS Singer John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen arrive at the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood.

John Legend thinks reality TV is “dangerous” for a relationship.

The All Of Me singer, who is friends with Kanye West and fiancée Kim Kardashian, has ruled out starring in a show similar to Keeping Up With The Kardashians with his wife Chrissy Teigan because he thinks it's unhealthy.

John exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “We don't want to put our relationship on television, I think we share enough as it is. I think there are all kinds of unscripted television and I think Chrissy's keen to do the right kind, but not the, 'Let's watch John and Chrissy be married' kind, it's not really healthy for our relationship.”

The 35-year-old star, who insists he doesn't give rapper Kanye advice about his social life, respects his decision to appear in the E! reality show for his engagement episode but thinks the family, including eight-month-old daughter North, are better off not having their every move caught on camera.

He said: “I don't know what Kanye is doing with the show. To this point, he's made minor appearances but it's not been all about their relationship. It's really hard to do that on television and I think it's dangerous for a relationship.” - Bang Showbiz
