Chrissy Teigen Trolls Husband John Legend Over His Tony Nomination For 'SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical'

And now the Lip Sync Battle host proved she wasn't lying when she made her comments on The Ellen Show earlier this year after she trolled her husband John Legend following his Tony Award nomination on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old model, who is currently pregnant with their second child, took to Twitter to share her shock over John's nod for Best Original Score for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical.


Playfully acknowledging his Tony nod, which was listed under 'various contributors', the Lip Sync Battle host joked that John never told her about his foray into musicals.

She wrote: "John got nominated for a Tony this morning for a song he apparently wrote for SpongeBob SquarePants.

"Why does he not tell me when he writes spongebob songs?? What else is he lying about?? Are there other songs out there."

And Chrissy's tweet gained thousands responses most notably from the stage, who joked they were 'hurt' he didn't tell her.

The official Twitter account for the musical responded: "He never told you about us?!?!?!? Wow, John... we’re kinda hurt. But also, CONGRATS!!!!!"

"@johnlegend you gotta stop hiding these things from our girl @chrissyteigen", the official SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical Twitter account added.

The musical which is based on the hit Nickelodeon animated series, and made its Broadway debut at the Palace Theatre on in December 2017 and has received 12 nominations at the upcoming 72nd Tony Awards, making it the most nominated Broadway show this season.

The stage show features songs by a number of well-known artists including Cyndi Lauper, David Bowie, Panic! at the Disco, Sara Bareilles, T.I., Plain White T's, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry as well as Chrissy's beau John.

Award-winning singer-songwriter John, who is one Emmy away from an EGOT, wrote "(I Guess I) Miss You" for the musical which is sung by SpongeBob and his pal Patrick.


This is John's second Tony nomination after he previously won a coveted award at last year's ceremony for co-producing the revival of August Wilson’s play, Jitney.

Chrissy's hilarious commentary comes after she tried and failed to answer very basic questions about her husband in a hilarious segment with Ellen DeGeneres. In February, she appeared on Ellen's show and admitted she hasn't watched Selma, the 2014 movie for which John co-wrote an Academy-Award-winning song. "We're going to play a game with you," Ellen announced in response to Chrissy's revelation, "because you've not seen Selma and I don't know what else you don't know about your husband."

During the game, "You don't know Jack about John", Chrissy revealed that "he doesn't tell me about things he's producing. We went to Sundance and he was like, "Oh, we're showing my movie" and I was like, "Your movie? What are you talking about?"'

The multi-award nominated SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical is now playing at the Palace Theatre (1564 Broadway at West 47th Street). For full information, reviews and tickets, visit http://spongebobbroadway.com.
