Chrissy Teigen rose to fame as a model, but the 32-year-old is now just as well known for her cookbook, Cravings, her role as a mom of two and her excellent tweets, many of which involve trolling her husband, John Legend.
From taking jabs at his career to comparing him to children's cartoon characters, there is no shot Teigen won't take at Legend, much to the delight of her followers on social media. Sure, she's occasionally complimentary (see her recent Father's Day post for proof), but her trolling usually wins out on a comedic scale.
Scroll through for a few of Teigen's best Legend-directed burns over the years.
When she wanted to make it clear who has talent in her family
Sure, Legend is an award-winning artist who has sold millions of records worldwide, but according to Teigen, she could be just as successful if only given the chance.
"John just now told me about the pedal that makes it sound prettier," she wrote in 2017. "Tryin to

When she considered divorce
In 2013, Teigen shared an album she had found of her husband's that was so old, it had his given name — John Stephens — printed on it.
"Simultaneously unpacking and filing for divorce," she cracked.prevnext
When she wanted recognition for her work
Legend's song "All Of Me" was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards, and since Teigen was the inspiration for the song, the author joked that she should be receiving the recognition as well.
2 grammy noms for @johnlegend no one has congratulated me for being the inspiration behind "all of me" without me there is no all of me— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 6, 2014
When she formulated this plan
In 2014, Teigen shared a plan she had come up with in case of her demise.

When the Golden Globes misspelled John's name
Last year, the couple attended the Golden Globes only for Legend to find that his name had been spelled incorrectly on his place card. To commemorate the moment, Teigen shared a photo of her husband holding the card, looking less than thrilled.
Accompanying the snap, Teigen expressed her feelings succinctly, writing "Bahahaha loser."

When John was nominated for a Tony Award
This year, Legend scored a Tony nomination for Best Original Score for SpongeBob SquarePants, with the singer receiving the honor along with a list of contributors to the score. Despite the accolade, it seems Teigen didn't even know her husband had added to the score.
“John got nominated for a Tony this morning for a song he apparently wrote for
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??— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 1, 2018
When John wasn't taking care of his baby
Days after Teigen gave birth to the couple's second child, son Miles, Legend attended the Billboard Music Awards and received a social media dressing-down from his wife in the process.
"wow didn’t u just have a baby John smh go take care of it !!!!!! disgusting," Teigen tweeted alongside a photo of herself watching her husband on screen.

When she compared John to Arthur
As fans know, the internet has deemed Legend the spitting image of children's cartoon character Arthur, something Teigen has hilariously run with on multiple occasions.
Recently, Teigen shared a photo of the couple's daughter, Luna, holding a stuffed Arthur doll, with the caption, "Luna and daddy."
In the comments, she wrote, "This is is my childhood Arthur doll. My mom has kept it all this time. Maybe I've been attracted to Arthur my whole life and now I found my real life human one."
A seemingly unimpressed Legend later commented, "wow."prevnext
A few days later, she posted a graphic fully depicting Legend as the cartoon aardvark, courtesy of Deen Ally Designs.1comments
Quoting Arthur's theme song, Teigen captioned the image, "And I say hey HEY what a wonderful kind of day. Where we can learn to laugh and play. And get along with each other. You’ve got to listen to your heart, listen to the beat, listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street."
