Jerry Seinfeld wants Kesha to know that he did not intentionally snub her on the red carpet earlier this week.
When a reporter informed the comedian that the woman looking for a hug was Kesha, Seinfeld replied with a laugh, "Oh OK. Well, I wish her the best!"
Kesha, 30, approached Seinfeld for a hug Monday at the red carpet for the "Night of Laughter & Song" event at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
The comedian denied her request for a hug three times, saying, "I don't know who that was."
Seinfeld told "Extra TV" today that he didn't mean to be rude.
"I'm 63, I don’t know every pop star...I don’t know everyone," he explained. "I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off."
