Before Mary Poppins star Emily Blunt met husband John Krasinski, she dated singer Michael Bublé for three years. This might be news to you, but they were a hot item a few years ago.

There was plenty of drama surrounding the famous couple’s split. One thing that some fans want to know is why the former couple broke up. Here’s the real reason Emily Blunt and Michael Bublé broke up.

Cheating rumors

There were rumors Bublé cheated on Blunt and that’s why they broke off their three-year relationship. The rumor mill died down but was put in motion once again after Blunt’s mysterious statement during a radio interview with Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show. When Stern asked her if Bublé cheated on her while they were dating, she replied, “I don’t know, it’s complicated. I never want to talk about it. I can’t do it,” reports ET Canada. Her response had some fans speculating Bublé cheated and that’s what caused the split.

Did someone cheat?

You might wonder who cheated, but according to Bublé, cheating was not a factor in the breakup. The singer says there were other reasons he and Blunt ended their relationship. “Emily is a beautiful and loving person, and I’m grateful for the time I had with her, for the relationship,” Bublé told ET Canada. He has said during interviews he wasn’t unfaithful, but that he has done some questionable things in past relationships.

It’s not clear what behavior the singer is referring to, but he admitted to being “a jerk” in past relationships during an interview with Canadian show eTalk, reports Hello! magazine. Here’s what Bublé  said during the interview:

I was careless and reckless with the hearts of women I was with. 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. 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.

Why Emily Blunt and Michael Bublé broke up

Bublé says he and Blunt broke up because they weren’t a good fit. “Without [my relationship with Emily], I wouldn’t have had a chance to fall in love with myself enough to be with a woman like my wife. It didn’t end because of cheating. It ended because we weren’t right for each other, and we are now exactly where we’re supposed to be in our lives,” he said in his 2015 interview with ET Canada.

Moving on

Both Blunt and Buble moved on and married other people. Bublé married Argentinian model Luisana Lopilato in 2011, and Blunt married actor John Krasinski in 2010.
