Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura showed his testy side when a recent interview with a Fox News host turned to a sensitive topic.

Jesse Watters, the host of "Watters' World" and a co-host of "The Five," caught up with Ventura at a recent marijuana convention in New York City. Ventura had given a speech about legalizing the drug.

Watters threw a few questions about Ventura's thoughts on marijuana before switching gears and asking about the lawsuit Ventura filed against the widow of Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL who was murdered in 2013. Kyle wrote in his book that Ventura was causing trouble in a San Diego bar and Kyle punched him in the face.

Ventura has denied the fight ever happened and sued Kyle for defamation. After Kyle's death, Ventura sued Kyle's widow Taya and was eventually awarded $1.8 million, a decision that was later overturned. Ventura is still pushing for legal action.

"Were you high when you sued Chris Kyle's widow?" Watters asked.

"Was I high? That's [an expletive] question and I expect it from someone at Fox. No," a clearly irritated Ventura said.

"No it ain't [a serious question]. No it ain't, 'cause I never sued the widow. I sued him."

Watters then pointed out that Taya Kyle is "suffering a lot of pain" due to Ventura's continued pursuit of legal action.

"No, she isn't. Insurance pays for it all," Ventura said. "She hasn't paid one cent. How do I know it? It's my case. The case got overturned because the truth came out. Insurance is paying for all of it. It isn't costing his family a cent. That's the way legal works if you do your homework."

Ventura then said Taya Kyle "should apologize to me for the lie that her husband told about me."

Chris Kyle is known as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history with around 160 confirmed kills. His 2012 book "American Sniper" chronicled his life as a Navy SEAL marksman.

Kyle was murdered on a gun range in 2013.
