Like many of you, I totally didn’t see this coming… I always thought Heidi Klum & Seal had one of the best celebrity marriages… They always seemed so perfect together on the red carpet, always marked their wedding anniversaries in a lavish way, etc. There were so many reasons for me to love them. But as we all know, they are now separated and have both filed for divorce. Their divorce is slowly becoming messy as Seal recently accused his ex-wife of fornicating with her bodyguard but later retracted his statement.
Seal sparked controversy after suggesting late last month Heidi was sleeping with bodyguard Martin Kristen after they were photographed together in Italy. He said
I would have preferred Heidi to have shown a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help.
He later retracted his statement after Heidi’s spokesman denied the claims. Seal insisted that he had not meant to suggest she had cheated on him during their marriage. Heidi Klum opened up about her broken relationship with her estranged husband – Seal, admitting the pair aren’t ‘the greatest of friends’ in the wake of their split. The German supermodel, in a pre-taped interview for Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show, says she was stunned when the singer alluded to her having an affair with her bodyguard. Denying claims she cheated, the 39-year-old said the pair are talking, but for now she’s taking it ‘one day at a time’. Heidi said:
I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now, especially because of the things that he said. I just saw him on Sunday. We were talking and we’re in an okay place. It’s a work in progress. You have to take it one day at a time. It’s hard especially when you are in the public eye too. People are always looking at you closely and at everything you do. And they also don’t always see exactly how it really is. I haven’t felt like correcting every rumour that is out there. I’m focusing on moving forward.’
Heidi has always maintained that she had been faithful to Seal while they were married. Regarding Seal’s claims, she said ‘It was a unique choice of words. I’m used to it. Other people aren’t. When we were together, I never looked at a another man. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I.
