Michael Bublé and his wife Luisana have been living in constant fear after their viral Instagram Live video has caused an extreme backlash, resulting in the star receiving death threats.

But that's not all,  Bublé's apparent "abusive behavior" has got everyone on Twitter using the hashtag, #michaelbubleisoverparty.

We all know Michael Bublé to be a pretty nice guy, right?

Born in British Colombia, Canada, Bublé quickly rose to fame for his modern-day jazz vocals and his undeniable charm.

With many stating that he has put a fresh twist on artists like Frank Sinatra, he quickly became a household name.

After releasing his major debut album all the way back in 2003, it has only been onwards and upwards for the star.

His best hits include, "Haven't Met You Yet", "Cry Me A River" and "Home."

There is no doubt that you have heard one of these Michael Bublé hits. His most recent releases include: "Love You Anymore" and "When I Fall In Love."

And could we ever forget about his Christmas albums?

His covers of well-known Christmas songs are replayed every year and for good reason too. We just can't get enough of them.

And with all those classics stuffed under his belt, obviously, he was bound to win some awards.

After being named New Artist of the Year early on in his career, he managed to secure many spots on the Billboard 200 as well as receive a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

And since then he has been writing and producing hits with other prominent artists.

His most notable being his duet with Meghan Trainor titled "Someday," also written by Trainor and former One Direction boy band member, Harry Styles.

But as shiny as his career was, his personal life seemed to be the opposite.

As with any celebrity, hiding from the limelight becomes a difficult task, especially if you're as famous as someone like Bublé.

He hasn't had it easy over the past few years, that's for sure.

When his then 3-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with liver cancer, his world turned upside down and his career was put on halt.

The singer described his feelings about dealing with such a horrible ordeal:

According to USA Today, he said this: "I don't even think about my career," and that now, spending time with his family comes first, with everything else ranking “zero on the scale of (expletive) to care about."

He continued:

“It’s going to sound sloppy, but I remember sitting there and thinking, ‘Why the (expletive) am I worried about all this (expletive)? That’s what I was worried about? What people thought of me, or the numbers of something? That’s (expletive). That doesn’t matter." "It allows you to enjoy the little things in life and not be so (expletive) busy worrying how many likes you got, or how much money you made, stuff that makes you go, ‘Oh God, what was I thinking about?’"

Thankfully, Noah is now in remission.

But he has described how his illness changed his values. So, for every 3 weeks he spends touring, he spends the next 2 at home with his family.

But knowing he has a strong bond with his family only made the news harder to bear.

When accusations of domestic abuse started surfacing, we were all left shocked and confused. And fans claimed to have noticed a reoccurring pattern, as opposed to just a one-off incident. Keep scrolling to see the video so you can decide for yourselves.

While he has always credited his fans for his success, they have now turned on him.

The Canadian singer has always been public about how much he adores his fans, but in spite of recent events, they have started calling out the jazz singer for his behavior.

It all started with an Instagram Live.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, celebrities should spend their days quarantining like normal people, as opposed to trying to entertain us virtually because something always goes wrong. Take Vanessa Hudgens and Danielle Bregoli as the perfect examples.

Now Michael Bublé too?

But the allegations against the Canadian are extremely serious. As couples are being confined to their houses together, domestic abuse cases have risen at an alarming rate.

Some fans felt that the singer was being particularly "rough" with his wife.

While the two were performing children's songs together, he apparently elbowed her pretty hard, before seeming to force her to apologize for interrupting him while he spoke.

And that's not all...

Fans also claimed they noticed how uncomfortable she looked throughout the video and even when he pulled her in for a side hug, she had an awkward smile on her face.

In an older video from last month, some fans also noticed some strange behavior...

At one point, Bublé says this: "Honestly, I can't wait till you get to see the divorce on this. 'Cause honestly, I'm telling you right now, if you think this is an act, it's not an act. My God." He then turned to Luisana, who had just arrived a couple minutes late for filming and said: "You're so dead to me."

While many have noted that this is "playful", others have prompted her to ask for help.

Fans have had extremely mixed reactions about the issue, and of course, an Instagram Live is not always the best representation of a person, or a relationship.

One user said this:

via: Twitter

"Plz tell me what you think of this... to all of us is clearly a man being abusive with his wife, the way her grabbed her by the arm... that’s Michael Bublé... she keeps on denying it but there’s so many videos of him and treating her the same way," and has since received 100 likes for the comment.

And even though this user claimed it was playful...

Other fans are not so sure.

However, now Bublé's wife has spoken out...

Because of all the backlash directed at her husband, Luisana Lopilato has been forced to respond to the allegations.

She wrote this in Spanish (which was then translated by Hola! to English):

"It's incredible how some people are!! While we are in the middle of a pandemic and living our lives under quarantine, angst, fear, loneliness, and uncertainty of all kinds!"

She continued:

"[I] come out every day with my husband to try to do [Instagram] lives to bring some happiness, entertainment, longing, and we have to put up with, hear and see what people with ill intentions are posting without knowing anything about our family and after all the pain that we have experienced."

"I want you all to know that I have no doubts about who my husband is and that I would choose him again a thousand times over!"

"Without any more to say and do what I believe is correct when someone comes after my family, and leave the consequences to God! The world needs more now than ever 'love, faith, values, unity, and solidarity' NOT these kinds of people."

However, the backlash didn't stop...

Despite Luisana being explicit about her love for her husband, people kept prompting her to ask for help if she was being abused.

So, she released a second statement:

This time she said in a video: "It's very important that we pay attention to these problems that have been mentioned and that I am lucky not to suffer."

"But it is important to pay attention to be able to help women that are going through it."

Bublé himself has not spoken out as of yet.

But it seems as though the backlash has only gotten worse for the couple. It has even triggered the Twitter hashtag... #michaelbubleisoverparty.

As well as the abuse on Twitter, Bublé has also been receiving terrifying death threats after the whole ordeal, which Lopilato opened up about this week after appearing on the Argentinian talk show, Intrusos.

The viral video has sparked something menacing...

"You wouldn’t believe the amount of people who sent me photos with weapons saying they were going to kill Mike when he reached Argentina," she admitted. "Photos of knives from people laughing and saying they were going to cut off his fingers, leave a bomb for us or give him a beating. It made me afraid and I still feel a little bit frightened."

Understandably, Lopilato is fearful for her family. The couple has 2 sons and 1 daughter, Noah, 6, Elias, 4, and daughter Vida, who is only 22 months.

"There were a lot of threats, the positive messages we received outnumbered them but I am worried for my family. I suffered a lot with what happened."

She revealed that Bublé was extremely upset by the violent messages as he has a lot of family and friends in Argentina.

"Can you imagine what it feels like to receive a photo from Argentina of a youngster holding a weapon and the warning: 'This is what you’re going to get when you come here!'"

Lopilato has since taken to Twitter to shut down all the "disrespectful lies."

"It's incredible how some human beings are!!" she posted. "While we suffer this pandemic and we live moments of confinement, anguish, fear, loneliness and uncertainties of all kinds! Defending Bublé once again, Lopilato called him a "gentleman" who is "always trying" to make her happy.

She appears to be totally distraught by the fraudulent claims.

"Every day we go out with my husband to do lives to bring you a little joy, entertainment and we have to listen and see what malicious people publish without knowing anything about our family," she continued. "I want you to know that I have no doubts who my husband is and I would choose him a thousand times over!! It's not fair!"

A rep for Bublé referred to the allegations as "a failed effort of cyberbullying." And after reading some of the comments, people are clearly going overboard.

He later went on to release a statement saying: "Anyone who watches them on Facebook Live every day can see that this is a beautiful partnership filled with love."

Here's the video causing all the commotion...

It seems Luisana is happy and comfortable in her relationship with Michael. We wish them all the best. Keep scrolling if you want to see why Instagram Lives and celebrities aren't a good fit...
