BACK TOGETHER?


R&B soul singer John Legend had a brief relationship with Naija model,Tayo Otiti. So are these two back together again? John and Tayo were spotted together recently at Kanye West's 30th birthday bash at New York City's Louis Vuitton store:


So are John and Tayo:
1.) Simply friends who happen to be the same place at the same time?

2.) trying to keep their relationship under the radar?

3.) got caught in the middle of a photo op?

Here's the info on John and Tayo's short relationship:
John sang Tayo "Happy Birthday" at Garden of Ono last June. [source]
John sang the same song AGAIN to Tayo at NYC night spot, Marquee. [source]

So WHO is Tayo?
She's Wilhelmina agency model. The same modeling agency that Halle Berry's boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, is currently signed on.
Going by her last name, she's of Nigerian descent. {DUH!}

While you ponder on those thoughts. John Legend has joined the laundry list of performers set to take the stage at Nigeria's biggest music fest--THISDAY!
Via Bella Naija:
After all the drama and debate that last year’s inaugural event caused, Nduka and the ThisDay family are back with another stellar lineup.
Shakira, R&B rising star, John Legend and UB40, are among 12 Nigerian and international artistes who have confirmed participation at the second edition of THISDAY Music Festival scheduled to hold on July 14 and 15 at THISDAY's brand new event centre in Lagos. The centre has a seating capacity of 15,000. More artistes billed to perform in the star-studded music festival are expected to confirm their participation next week.

I've been a fan of John Legend since "So High" because my interest peek when I caught win of him dating a Naija girl. So now that they're posing 'together' in the same picture, I'm like hmmm John wants that fufu flavor! lol!

^^LOL, I had the same thought but Usher posed with Chilli (his then girlfriend) and his now fiancee Tameka Foster. No one knew Usher was two-timing them both. My point is...you just never know. john and tayo could be good friends...with benefits.

Tayo is trying hard to be seen in both photographs but John's paying more attention to Caridee from "America's Next Top Model."

Anyhow he has a thing for models though.
