Michael Bu­ble’s wife thought he was gay when they first met

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ hit­maker has re­vealed his spouse Luisana Lopi­lato was con­vinced he wanted to hit on her male friend rather than her. Re­call­ing their first meet­ing, Michael said: “She walked in this room with a man, and the man was so good look­ing that he made Brad Pitt look dumpy, so I as­sumed they were to­gether. I nat­u­rally as­sumed that this was her boyfriend or her hus­band, so I re­fused to hit on her. “I fi­nally said, ‘You guys are such a beau­ti­ful cou­ple,’ and he said, ‘We’re not to­gether.’ He said, ‘She came be­cause she likes you.’ And at the same time, she was on the phone tex­ting her mom say­ing, ‘Oh my God, Michael BublÈ is all over my friend. He’s so gay.” How­ever, the 41-year-old singer - who has Noah, three, and Elias, 10 months, with Luisana - ad­mits he finds it hard to tell whether men are hit­ting on him. He added to PrideSource: “I have the worst gay-dar ever. I re­ally do have the worst gay-dar. I could be hang­ing with some­body and my friends will be like, ‘Michael, he was hit­ting on you hard,’ and I’m like, ‘What are you talk­ing about - he’s just a re­ally nice guy!’ Some­times I don’t pick up the s**t peo­ple are putting down.” Mean­while, Michael pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted he han­dled fame “very poorly” at the be­gin­ning of his ca­reer. He said: “Fame stunts your growth. I han­dled it very poorly. I re­gret the way I treated a lot of my fam­ily and even my­self. I was reck­less with hearts. But I got my karma. Early on, I wasn’t equipped to han­dle it. That’s why you have to have peo­ple around you who love you enough to put you in your place ... We all bat­tle with our own demons. A lot changed when I had kids.”
