Jerry Seinfeld reveals the reason he refused to give Kesha a hug

Jerry Seinfeld denying Kesha a hug was one of the most wonderfully uncomfortable things we’ve seen in a long time.

The joy in her eyes, the confusion in his…*kisses finger like chef*

And now the iconic comedian’s revealed the reason behind the savagery in a chat with Extra.

“I don’t know every pop star…I don’t know everyone.

“When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality, in my reality … I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I gotta start somewhere… hug isn’t first moment of a human, two humans. I never did that.”

He added he’s just generally “not a hugger” – well, at least not to total strangers.

Seinfeld added that the pair had a bit of a laugh about it when the cameras stopped rolling, but did he hug her?


Ice cold.
