During a Nov. 8 concert in New York, Canadian crooner Michael Buble announced to the audience: "Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest. Please welcome Kim Kardashian!"
When gasps rippled through the crowd, Buble said he was kidding: "Nah, just f****ng with you! That b**** isn't coming on my stage.”
The New York Post reported Buble mockingly dedicated a cover of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" to Kris Humphries and fired off another quip about the doomed celebrity couple that filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage.
"She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!" Buble joked.
Moreover, Buble is not the first to weigh in on the much-publicized divorce.
Kardashian’s own ex-publicist Jonathan Jaxson recently claimed Kardashian’s wedding to NBA star Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt.
Even pop-queen Mariah Carey had some choice words for the reality TV star.
"I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood," said Carey said at a press conference last week, regarding married life with television host/actor husband Nick Cannon. "Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months."
Carey later denied taking a shot at Kardashian.
"First of all, I don't read the tabloids unless it's about me," Carey told Extra. "And even then, when it is about me, I try not to read it unless it's good. I don't look at these people. I don't even know what it is, but I do know that marriages coma and go really quickly in Hollywood."
However, the Internet did not seem to support Buble’s vicious methods.
“I’m not a fan of Kim Kardashian or the rest of the Kardashian family, but celebrities need to stop calling each other names, they come across as school-yard bullies and imitating people like Joan Rivers, who has made a living degrading others. Not acceptable,” said one Huffington Post commentator.
“Funny how he's never in the news, but suddenly brings up Kim Kardashian, and is,” said Jennifer Sommerio. “Trying to get some publicity Michael Buble? Grow up!”
“Michael has gone too far since he got rich and famous. My husband and I used to love him and went to many of his concerts. We met him before one of his concerts and he was rude, and now this. He's gone too far. We can't even stomach his concerts anymore because of his profanity. It's downright embarrassing,” complained Laurie Jaeger.
Buble later apologized.
