There's a feud brewing between Michael Buble and Kim Kardashian -- despite the fact that they've never met. That's because the Grammy Award-winning singer called the reality TV star -- who's recently dominated tabloid news thanks to her 72-day-long marriage -- a "bitch" during his Nov. 8 performance at the iHeartRadio Live concert in New York City.
"Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest. Please welcome Kim Kardashian (to the stage)," Buble, 36, joked, according to the New York Post. When the audience gasped, he added, "Nah, just f***ing with you! That bitch isn't coming on my stage."
Those weren't the only harsh words Buble had for Kardashian that night. He went on to dedicate his next song, a cover of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good," to Kardashian's recently dumped husband Kris Humphries.
"She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!" Buble reportedly joked.
Buble isn't the first celebrity to lash out at Kardashian since the end of her short-lived marriage. British-Indian writer Salman Rushdie took to Twitter to post this funny limerick about Kardashian's divorce: "The marriage of poor kim kardashian was krushed like a kar in a krashian/her kris kried, not fair! why kan't I keep my share?/But kardashian fell klean outa fashian."
Former Star Trek star George Takei posted a photo on his Facebook poking fun at the Kardashian sisters. The picture featured a race of lizard-like creatures in the Star Trek universe called the Cardassians. "Now THIS I would watch!" Takei wrote.
Not surprisingly, the cast of Saturday Night Live was also quick to mock the family with the faux E! Kim's Fairytale Divorce.
"Ha! I just saw the SNL skit they did and I could not stop laughing," Kim's sister Khloe, 27, tweeted the next day. "It's SNL. They are supposed to make fun. It's not who we are and I know that."
Quite true -- but what's Buble's excuse?
