RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the two comedy kings are caught up in a bitter feud.
“Nobody knows where the bad blood comes from, but Jerry just hates Jimmy," a source told RadarOnline.com, adding that friends believe the animosity stems from just plain jealousy. “People believe Jerry is envious of Jimmy."
Despite Seinfeld’s enormous success from his self-titled NBC 90's sitcom, Kimmel, 51, has had a far higher profile recently, with his late-night ABC chatfest and hosting gigs on the Oscars, Emmys and other awards shows.
“There’s no specific event anybody can point to, and it’s not coming from Kimmel’s side,” the source confessed. “He’s a huge Seinfeld fan and he’s always talking about what a great comic Jerry is."
Kimmel has previously had Seinfeld, 64, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and has even done his Seinfeld impression for him, but something has gone south in recent years, according to the source.
“You won’t see Jerry on Jimmy’s show again — ever,” the insider revealed.
