Christine Teigen

John Legend wants the world to stop hating on his hot Thai-Norwegian model girlfriend, Christine Teigen.Legend told the New York Daily News:

“People are automatically condescending,” “They expect her to be dumb and say, ‘Oh you’re just dating a dumb girl because she’s hot.’ But people judge you either way. If you’re dating a girl who’s kind of regular, you hear, ‘Why are you dating her?’ I don’t get caught up in it. I’m more concerned with my happiness.”

    John Legend is so fine – I am a 56 year old black female and I would be jealous of any female of any race who is dating my dream man – My God he is fine an can sing, I’ve been listening to his music every day for five years!!! Love you John

    I know John personally and if you don’t know what you are talking about then keep it to yourself. Everyone has an opinion and are entitled to it, but if you don’t know the facts, then don’t spout what you THINK you know. You sound unintelligent to individuals who are aware of the facts. John is not gay, he is not a sell out and most people on here just are pissed because they are not in his shoes. He takes care of his family, his community and has a number of charities supporting various issues.
    Do me a favor, take it back to the drawing board, put a little thought into what you want to do in life, work hard to get it and maybe you too can have some idiot writing what they think they know about you instead of you doing the writing.

    Look John came from a small city called Springfield, Ohio and we went to a majority white school North High. John was the smartest boy in school and graduated at the age of 16. John’s friends and environment was of mixed races white and black. John did not change, and when he was in Springfield did not date to my knowledge because he was busy handeling his business. All of you fans or not are on here sounding ridiculous and have no real clue (the negative ones at leaset). John is good people and spiritual so you better becareful of how you ridicule him. Also he is NOT gay, he is who he is and does not need to explain this to anyone. As far as his girlfriend, she’s a beauty, and you GO Johnny!!!!!

    Wow meow and mar. What Racists you are. I’m sure MLK would be proud of your racist attitude

  9. mar says:

    He looks very gay. When a lot of these kind of black guys go for these kinds of girls it is usually out of perversion. Often these girls have no boundaries and/or morals when it comes to sex. They look normal in public but in private they are weird, drunks, potty mouths and you name it. A black man empowered him to go and acquire more only for him to take it and dump it into the white race. He makes me sick just like the rest.

    • Benzito says:

      @Mar. First off she is half white, if there is such a thing. Her dominate race is Thai. Your a real hater Mar. There is nothing you can do to stop the reintegration of whites black into the family of people of color. Actually, whites in the world population are a tiny minority,everyong else in the world has some noticeable degree of melonin in their skin. So Mar, it is really the white race who is injecting its genes into the established pool. hahahahhahahahhahahahahah

    I was watching black In America 2 tonight.

    John Legend turned around and smacked MLT’s Rice and the ENTIRE black race in the face when after becoming more successful he took his wealth to the white society instead of his own black society. With all his fame he is still insecure about himself and heritage and seek white to make him feel more acceptable. Guys like him make me sick!

  11. Lisa T. says:

    John legend seems like that kind of guy you just want to go to starbucks with and hang out.(He is obviously the best looking man in the industry.),but he is the most talented in the industy also. I would love to see him in the city(Manhattan)and get to take a pic. with him and Chrissy. They should stay together as long as both of them are happy.

  12. viola says:

    I think she is a good personality match to John, she seems light and fun so that would be good for someone who has a hectic schedule like him. She is a model so why not let her be herself, she doesn’t seem to need a man to define her.

  13. Annie says:

    I don’t know either of them personally, but I bumped into them while shopping in SoHo. John Legend was unbelievably nice — I asked for a picture, and he even told me to take care when they got into their car. His girlfriend took a picture of us, and she didn’t seem standoffish at all.

  14. ENVY says:

    Im so catty dat i’m just to catty….they dont even luk together next to John she luks famous but far from him she luks like a reject or a neglected piece of sumtin…yep dats right im definitly JEALOUS

  15. KAL says:

    My anme is Kal and i’m commenting all teh way from BKK. CHRISSY! you’re a doll! keep doing whatcha do gf! mua

  16. elena gerard says:

    To all the haters! So what if he is gay or not he is still the most talented singer on the planet, Plus he’s FINE a$s HELL. And even though my heart is so broken because he is kissing another woman (that isn’t me) I am happy for him because he deserves to be happy. Chrissy has to be one of the luckiest women on the planet. You go girl, Please give him a kiss for me. I’m his BIGGEST fan :)

    Is there ANYONE on the net who doesn’t know Christine personally?! LOL!

  18. KB says:

    My God, she is dumb, because John Legend is so gay. It is so obvious. But I am sure it will all come out when they break up or later when he falls off the map and write an autobiography to get money.

  19. Varuviv says:

    Aww they look cute, too bad that he’s not in the market anymore though :P

  20. Caren says:

    I am married to her couison and though I may be a little biased, I think she is the prettiest thing I have seen. Congrats on your fame and beauty. May you prosper to the fullest.

  21. Nick says:

    Crazy is all I got to say…see my ex’s lil sister with John Legend…what. For t mon…I’m sorry you had a rough time in school, but Chrissy is definitely good people with an amazing sense of humor…

  22. ari says:

    I’m not excited about them dating but that’s because I have a crush on JL. LOL

    I think the cattiness comes from there, the jealousy? you gotta give kudos where its owed and Chrissy deserves it. She’s gorgeous and from what I heard she’s kind too!

    so keep PDAing Johny Chrissy! :)

  23. Elle says:

    I disagree with the previous statement. I have also known Chrissy in school (high school)and I always felt she was one of the nicest people I knew, not to mention the funniest. I am so happy to see her doing so well. She was always grateful and polite. This coming from a girl that wasn’t with the “in crowd,” she was very sweet. That is a lot more than I can say for most of the “in crowd” at Snohomish. But, it is high school that is what is to be expected. Great work making a life for yourself Chrissy! P.S. College is boring – but they say it is worth it…I am not sure – your life looks pretty enojoyable! Good luck!

  24. t mon says:

    I have known Christine since elementary school. She is very rude and she used to be the ugly duckling. Haha. She is still not that cute though.

    • Patti says:

      Christine models for our company and is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet, Not only is she beautiful, she is very down to earth and sincerely a nice person.
