Michael Bublé Confesses He Was a 'Jerk' to Ex-Girlfriend Emily Blunt

With so many love songs in his repertoire, it's hard to imagine Michael Bublé as anything other than a catch of a guy, but even he admits that wasn't always the case. In a recent interview, the "Haven't Met You Yet" singer admitted that he was a careless jerk to his ex-girlfriends up until just a few years ago.

We have to assume he's including Emily Blunt in that list. They dated for three years before he was caught in bed with another woman in 2008. Yeah, that's not exactly treating your girlfriend with the respect she deserves. It's basically the exact opposite of that.

The 39-year-old Canadian recently opened up about past relationships to Toronto's eTalk, and copped to his wayward ways.

"I was a jerk and I was careless and reckless with the hearts of women I was with," he admitted. "And I got my karma. I earned it. I got my butt and heart kicked and it hurt me enough that I looked in the mirror and I didn't want it to happen again."

It seems to have worked, because he's now happily married to model Luisana Lopilato, and they have an 18-month-old son named Noah.

Bublé continued, "I think everyone looks back at some of the things we did and it's so cringy how I acted ... I learned about myself, I got closer to being spiritual and learned to be in the moment and realize how short life is. It changed everything."

He also said that learning to like himself has helped him to be a better man, and a better husband.

"The reason to be a good guy isn't for the person you're with, it's for you," he shared. "That sounds weird but I like me better now. I'm happier now. I'm better at what I do, I'm better on stage because I'm not pretending to be the guy I want to be ... Now when I go on stage it's bliss ...  Before that curtain opens I sit and I say, 'Thank you universe, God.' It makes me better, more vulnerable."

It takes a lot of guts to admit you were a cad and treated people badly, and Bublé was a class act about it. He didn't try to make excuses for his behavior, he just admitted he was dead wrong, and he got his comeuppance.

Are you surprised that Michael Bublé admitted to being such a jerk?
