“I was really stressed and busy,” he told the British paper. “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.’”
The 31-year-old supermodel also clarified the brief split to her fans in a second tweet, writing, “It wasn't a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like ‘no.’"
Teigen previously opened up to Cosmopolitanin the December 2016 issue about the brief split, saying, "I knew it came from a place other than us not working. I always joke, 'Remember when you tried to break up with me?' He's like, 'Yes, sorry. Big mistake.'"
