The 44-year-old singer elbowed the Argentinian actress in the side after she spoke over him, and grabbed her arm. Lopilato apologized to Bublé, who then pulled her closer to him and put his arms around her shoulder.
Luisana has since slammed comments suggesting the video shows ‘toxic’ behaviour as ‘lies’.
Fans hit out at ‘disturbing’ moment
The exchange prompted fans of Lopilato and Buble to take to social media, expressing their concern over the behaviours.
“That Michael Buble video is actually very uncomfortable to watch,” another agreed.
Luisana responds to ‘incredible’ commentary
The comments across the actress’s social media platforms caused her to issue a statement in Spanish to her more than 4.7 million Instagram followers denying concerns Michael’s behaviour is troubling.
“It’s incredible how some people are!” Lopilato wrote, according to a translation from Hola!
“While we are in the middle of a pandemic, and living our lives under quarantine, angst, fear, loneliness, and uncertainty of all kinds [I] come out every day with my husband to try to do lives to bring some happiness, entertainment, longing, and we have to put up with, hear and see what people with ill intentions are posting without knowing anything about our family,” she continued. “After all the pain that we have experienced, 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!”
Luisiana is referring to the couple’s struggle with son Noah’s liver cancer diagnosis when he was just three years old.
Fans double down, point to other incidents
Lopilato’s post caused some of her followers to double down on their belief that Bublé’s behaviour was disrespectful.
One Twitter user, Ariana Perfecta, posted a thread of recordings of the pair’s various tense moments during live streams, unleashing a wave of backlash.
On March 23 Lopilato was late to join Bublé for a live stream, and the Canadian crooner made a number of comments that have since made some uneasy.
“Honestly, I can’t wait till you get to see the divorce on this,” he told the camera. “‘Cause honestly, I’m telling you right now, if you think this is an act, it’s not an act. My God.”
When Lopilato arrived he told her, “You’re so dead”, though Luisana did not seem in to take the comment seriously, ignoring it in the footage.
In a separate video, when the pair signed off from their live stream, Bublé is heard telling his wife, “I’m going to kill you,” as she struggles to turn the camera off.
Luisana has since reiterated that the comments were taken out of context, saying people do not know her family and slamming the suggestions that Michael meant the comments seriously as ‘lies’.
The couple share three children together, six-year-old son Noah, four-year-old son Elias and one-year-old daughter Vida.
Bublé has yet to comment on the incident at the time of publication.
