CNN's Piers Morgan welcomes Madonna to twitter by banning her from his show

Piers Morgan and Madonna

The CNN host used the ‘Hung Up’ hit maker’s debut on the micro-blogging site on Tuesday to inform her she will never be welcome as a guest on his programme.

He wrote: "Welcome to twitter. You're still banned from my show. Love Piers X."

But the 53-year-old’s manager Guy Oseary, tweeted back, "Really?" along with a letter from Pier’s UK show asking Madonna to appear.

Defending himself, Piers explained: "Madonna has only been banned from my CNN show, not my UK show, which sent that invite. But I'm now banning her from that too.

“Oh, and I'm afraid you're banned from all my shows too @guyoseary- guilt by association, sorry.”
According to TMZ.com, Madonna – who joined twitter for one day only to promote her new album ‘MDNA’ - doesn’t know what sparked the feud. A source said: "She doesn't even know who he is."

Piers has previously revealed the bad feelings stem back to his days as an editor for the Daily Mirror newspaper.

He told Access Hollywood: “Madonna and I, we’ve never really seen eye-to-eye. There was a bread roll throwing incident in London in the mid 90s; there was an incident at a hotel in the south of France [at] the

Cannes Film Festival involving a photographer and a bodyguard; there’s been an incident involving a pub owned by her recently departed husband, Guy Ritchie, where my brother was the manager.

“You know the worst thing Madonna did to me? Madonna’s publicist once said to me, ‘Listen to me, Madonna is not pregnant’, when I was running a newspaper. And I said, ‘Are you sure?’ She said, ‘Listen to me, Piers. Madonna is not pregnant’.

“The next day, they announced [the news] on a rival newspaper’s website. There’s a series of crimes.”
