“Can I give you a hug?” she asks. “No thanks,” Seinfeld quickly says, dismissing her with a wave. She persists a couple more times as the comedian inches away, but his answer is still no.

“I don’t know who that was,” he remarked after Kesha gave up. When he found out it was Kesha he said, “Well I wish her the best.”
