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.
