Michael Bublé has recently been on the receiving end of intense backlash after videos of him allegedly "abusing" his wife, Luisana Lopilato, surfaced on the internet. The videos have also prompted fans to do a bit more digging and concerns have been circulating.
But after seeing all the chaos online, Luisana has been forced to address the situation in an emotional response. Read on to see what she had to say, as well as the video that sparked all the controversy.
We all know Michael Bublé to be a pretty nice guy, right?
With many stating that he has put a fresh twist on artists like Frank Sinatra, he quickly became a household name.
His best hits include, "Haven't Met You Yet", "Cry Me A River" and "Home."
And could we ever forget about his Christmas albums?
And with all those classics stuffed under his belt, obviously, he was bound to win some awards.
And since then he has been writing and producing hits with other prominent artists.
But as shiny as his career was, his personal life seemed to be the opposite.
He hasn't had it easy over the past few years, that's for sure.
The singer described his feelings about dealing with such a horrible ordeal: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."
Thankfully, Noah is now in remission.
But knowing he has a strong bond with his family only made the news harder to bear.
While he has always credited his fans for his success, they have now turned on him.
It all started with an Instagram Live.Vanessa Hudgens and Danielle Bregoli for the perfect examples.
Now Michael Bublé too?
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:"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.
While another user agreed:Someone even referred to this interaction as presenting "red flags."
And even though this user claimed it was playful...
@rnorman17 @BTS_twt_JIKOOK There's nothing playful in that clip, just look at her reaction. She knows a beating is coming her way later ☹️— James Smith (@James Smith)1586778231.0
However, now Bublé's wife has spoken out...
She wrote this in Spanish (which was then translated by Hola! to English):
"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!"
However, the backlash didn't stop...
@BTS_twt_JIKOOK This is not affection. This is abusive behaviour. Honestly I’m shocked at his behavior! His wife do… https://t.co/B912MfCGyN— Janice (@Janice)1586940038.0
