ABC NewsJohn Legend has called Kanye West‘s meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in New York City Tuesday morning a “publicity stunt.”
“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to him about issues,” Legend said about the possibility of meeting with the President-elect in a video interview with French outlet Clique, “But I won’t be used as a publicity stunt and I think Kanye was a publicity stunt.”
“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive. His message has been corrosive to the country. And I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people. And for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing,” he continued.
In other Kanye news, regarding West’s recent hospitalization, a source close to the rapper told People magazine that the rapper had not seemed well since Halloween.
“He wasn’t making a lot of sense when he talked, and he was texting a lot of strange stuff to people. Not dangerous, but he just didn’t make a lot of sense,” the source told the publication.
“Part of loving Kanye is that he sometimes is talking on a different level from you, and you just listen. But this was a lot more alarming.”
Previous reports from other sources close to West have claimed that he suffered severe paranoia, lack of sleep, stress and hallucinations that may have caused his recent hospital stay.
