WATCH: Jerry Seinfeld Explains Why He Didn’t Hug Kesha

“I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star, I don’t know everyone.”

By Sarah Carroll

Jerry Seinfeld is finally setting the record straight on why he infamously denied Kesha a hug when they crossed paths on the red carpet earlier this week.

“I don’t hug a total stranger,” he told Extra. “I have to meet someone, say hello, I gotta start somewhere.”

Kesha walked up to Seinfeld while he was being interviewed to share that she was a huge fan, but when she tried to embrace him, Jerry wasn’t having it.

“I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off,” he explained. “I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star, I don’t know everyone.”

And despite the awkward moment, Seinfeld revealed he and Kesha later patched things up.

“She was very nice about it. We laughed about it.”
