“I think, yes, I did have a history of it. Definitely in my 20s,” said John.

“I think what happened, for me personally, is you go through a lot of your life, like your teens, and I was, like, the 'two years younger kid than everybody' in high school and college. And so I just didn’t get a lot of girls when I was younger.

“When I started to get that attention, I loved it. Just ate it up," the singer explained.

“I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating,” he confessed.

“I definitely was dishonest and selfish. It was happening before I was famous.

“At a certain point, you just realise you’re happier being honest,” he said.

“You’re happier being faithful and being in love with one person . . . At a certain point, I just decided that person was Chrissy [Teigen]. I decided I wasn’t gonna mess with somebody else anymore.”
