According to a report, the French international also revealed that the former Newcastle United director of football never apologised about the incident during Cabaye's time with the Magpies.
"I only ever saw him a few months later when I left for Paris Saint-Germain. That was the only time. He did not apologise, but that was OK. I was not mad. It was funny for me."
29-year-old Cabaye joined Crystal Palace, who open their Premier League campaign against Norwich on Saturday, from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
