John Legend: 'Snapper was in wrong place at wrong time for my wife's wardrobe malfunction'

John Legend still can't believe "a resourceful photographer" managed to get a shot of his wife's genitals at the American Music Awards on Sunday night (20Nov16).

The singer/songwriter admits he studied model Chrissy Teigen's stunning but daring Yousef Akbar gown before they left home for the ceremony, and they both felt sure there would be no wardrobe malfunction on the red carpet.


But a breeze caught the high-slit dress, and one photographer was in the wrong place at the wrong time as far as the couple is concerned.


As a result, Chrissy hit the headlines for accidentally flashing her private parts, and felt the need to offer a humorous apology on Monday (21Oct16) to anyone she offended.


But laid back Legend is taking the incident in his stride telling news show Extra, "The photographer had to get the exact perfect angle", and adding, "If people are enticed or excited by that, that’s their thing, it's just a moment in time that was captured on film.


"I love the dress and I thought it was great. Honestly, we were worried there might be that moment, so we checked it. We were watching her walk. I was like, 'It looks good. Looks like all is well'. But obviously, if a photographer is resourceful enough they can find that one moment."
