Don't expect exes Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson
to buddy up to one another any time soon.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
airing Thursday, the rocker told Ellen
that he's "not really" friends with his former wife.
"If I saw her somewhere I'd say hi, but I try not to go in the same circles," he said. "I try to avoid that."
Asked why, the musician joked: "I touched stove, stove was hot, I think I not touch stove anymore."
Kid Rock, 38, and Anderson, 41, filed for divorce
in November 2006 after four months of marriage.
