John Legend may have had the funniest line of all during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. While Cecily Strong and Barack Obama were making jokes on stage, the “All Of Me” singer hilariously trolled New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick for checking out Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen.
Belichick was one of the celebrities invited to the annual gala. Model Teigen was there as well, and one hilarious photo captured Belichick (along with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Wisconsin basketball star Frank Kaminsky) looking at Teigen’s “assets.”

So John Legend took the opportunity to throw a little shade towards Bill Belichick. Legend retweeted the picture of the coach and Teigen with the simple caption, “Spy gate.”
This, of course, was a reference to the Patriots’ infamous Spygate scandal back in 2007. That year, a Patriots employee was caught videotaping an opponent’s defensive signals during a game, a violation of NFL rules. Belichick was later fined $500,00 for the transgression, while the Patriots were fined another $250,000 and lost a first round draft pick.
Chrissy Teigen also got in on the fun after the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. On Saturday, she tweeted “Let me live,” to John Legend in response to his “Spy gate” joke. And on Sunday, she wrote to her followers, “None of the guys were looking at my ass. They were just wondering why I don’t have one which is a reasonable concern.”
And luckily for Belichick, his girlfriend, Linda Holliday, was equally a good sport about the Chrissy Teigen photo. Holliday, who was at the WHCD with the coach, posted the incriminating picture on Instagram with the caption, “I mean, honestly, who didn’t check her out in this photo?!? I think I even looked! #PrettyLady.”
