Buble: No women allowed on tour

Michael Buble avoids having female members of his crew

Michael Buble has admitted that he doesn't like having women in his crew or as musicians when he's on tour, because he doesn't want to be "surrounded by drama".

In an interview with the Telegraph, Michael said he imposed a ban on women touring with the group as in the past "every time I've had female crew we've had serious break-ups and yellings".

Despite saying he "obviously" loves women, Michael whose wife Luisana often visits him when he's on tour, said having women in his crew brought too many complications.

"They say, 'Of course we're not going to have relationships. We are professionals and we have a boyfriend at home.' The next thing you know they're sleeping with the sound guy. And then the sound guy is fighting over another girl and it becomes a drama.

"It's an incestuous life. Let's make it easy. Obviously I love women. It's not about not loving women. It's about I don't want to be surrounded by drama."

Michael and his wife Argentinian model and actress Luisana Lopilato, met in 2009 and are currently expecting their first child.

In the interview, Michael also spoke of how he credits his wife with his healthy lifestyle today. The pair met at a time when he was struggling to recover from his break up with Emily Blunt.

"Four years ago I was tiny, so tiny when I went through the break-up. I was drinking every day, doing nothing, smoking cigarettes and I was really skinny. But I wasn't healthy skinny, I was heart-attack skinny.

"But you are who you hang out with and my wife doesn't drink and is very healthy."
