Smooth talking crooner and all round sexy beast Michael Buble has spoken out about his split from actress Emily Blunt back in 2008. The singer claims that breaking up with Emily was both the best and worst thing to have ever happened to him. Ouch?
Rumours circulated that Michael was unfaithful to the actress when one of his lovers posted pictures of him online, this reportedly led the actress to call off their engagement and kick him to the curb.
Michael claims that he has grown since the relationship ended, and since marrying his new wife argentinian model Luisana Lopilato. He says,
"It ended through both of us being young and naive and making silly mistakes. It was about me looking in the mirror and saying, 'Michael, wake up.' I never lived in the moment, not ever. It was out of insecurity and me worrying what would happen. I thought, 'You know, you could like yourself more.' I'm not embarrassed to say this. I f***ed up.” Michael went on to say,
"What happened after the ex was probably the most important time of my life. When we were done I was devastated. I took time to do therapy. I had to...I knew if I didn't change I would never be happy or content in my own skin with who I was. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me and the greatest thing that ever happened to me."
The singer also stressed that he believed his previous open relationships and his own insecurities were what led to the breakdown of his relationship to the Devil Wears Prada star,
"I've been in open relationships. I liked them, but they don't work. Someone always gets hurt. I got hurt and I've done hurting...The man has to love the woman more so he's always chasing. My wife is playing it right. I'm like a stupid dog chasing after her car...If you really love somebody why would you want them to be with somebody else? I'm not proud of how I've acted. I was reckless with other people's hearts."
We doubt Emily is too sore about the split now as she is cosied up to hilarious, hunky actor and star of The Office: An American Workplace, John Krasinski. However Michael if you ever need a shoulder to cry on, or just nuzzle in to, we’re always here...
