Heidi Klum got into a heated, drunken ‘bust-up’ with Martin Kristen in NYC

Heidi Klum

Here are photos of Heidi Klum and her bodyguard/boyfriend Martin Kristen, who have both been in New York City for several days together. Obviously, they’ve been doing some shopping, and Martin is being a good little bodyguard by carrying Heidi’s bags for her. Just to recap, Heidi and Martin went public with their romance last September in a weird People exclusive a few weeks after Seal claimed that he and Heidi split because she was banging the bodyguard (or as he put it, “the help“) during the marriage and for an undisclosed period of time.

Since Heidi and Martin have been an official couple, we’ve been treated to periodic happy-family photo ops with all of Heidi and Seal’s kids present. Heidi’s really been pushing this perfect romance pretty hard to the press, but it’s mostly been a yawnfest for gossip purposes. Things have gotten interesting though in light of all of the tabloid stories about Seal’s temper that were floating around after last year’s nasty split. According to Star, Seal once had to be physically restrained by security after he pushed Heidi. I’ve always assumed that “security” referred to Martin and that the story — truthful or not — came from Heidi’s camp. Of course, we also heard stuff from one of Seal’s exes, who claimed he had a violent temper, but clearly, there was some bad blood with that breakup, so who knows. Now, in a telling twist, it seems that Heidi and Martin got into a drunken war of words in NYC on Sunday night, according to Page Six:

Heidi Klum got into an alcohol-fueled argument with her bodyguard boyfriend at a New York restaurant before he stormed out, leaving her behind. The “America’s Got Talent” and “Next Top Model” icon got into a public bust-up with Martin Kristen on Sunday night at West Village favorite The Spotted Pig.

A fellow diner tells us of the drama, “They had been drinking with a male friend at a table, and things became heated very quickly.” The spy said that after an hour of arguing, an upset Klum abruptly walked out of the restaurant alone and stumbled down the block trying unsuccessfully to hail a cab.

Finally, she returned to the eatery, “but stubbornly refused to go inside and rejoin Martin at the table,” said the witness, who added Klum “stood in the doorway looking upset.”

Kristen eventually went outside to speak to her. Further words were exchanged before he left alone, while Klum went back to the table to carry on drinking with the friend, thought to be her fellow “Germany’s Next Top Model” judge Thomas Hayo.

The supermodel began dating bodyguard Kristen last year following her split with former husband Seal. Kristen had been hired to protect her and her kids Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou.

Klum said last year, “They [the kids] like him very much. This is also one reason why I’m so fond of him. He’s been helping me for four years now. And he takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him.”

A friend of Klum confirmed last night, “She’d had one drink too many, and they had an argument. All couples have disagreements, but most don’t get recognized when they have them.”

Yesterday, it was all smiles between the pair, who were spotted leaving a Manhattan address holding hands while he carried her bag. Her rep declined to comment last night.

An hour of arguing? That must have felt like forever since this was essentially a drunken argument — those are the worst, most circular arguments in existence. I guess, once again, Heidi has attempted to push a portrait of a “perfect relationship” upon the press, and of course, she’s full of crap. She should really stop doing that because no romance is perfect. It’s funny though that Heidi is pegged as the instigator here while fighting with Martin when she tried to make herself look like such a wide-eyed innocent during her breakup with Seal.

    So is he still her bodyguard and her boyfriend at the same time? If that’s true so she still has to pay him to ‘protect’ her. That somewhat feels very weird if true.

  2. Joanna says:

    He has a nice body! i’d be all over that

  3. don't kill me i'm french says:

    the drunk arguments always are nasty and foolish

  4. notpretentious says:

    It’s all about appearances with this one. She’s a big phony.

  5. NM9005 says:

    Klum is an asshole. She’s media hungry and it’s obviously she’s the one who tips paps and used ‘sources’ to trash Seal, the father of her children. This just shows how mean and childish this woman can be.

    Arguing in public? In front of her friend? Leaving (and probably hoping he runs after her like in the movies?) and refusing to go back inside? Uhm, how old is this woman? If she behaves like that in public (without paps of course!) can you imagine how horrible she must be indoors? How can she not control her drink and keep on drinking even after it causes problems?

    And HAHA at her bf bodyguard letting her go alone and then leaving her, isn’t he supposed to ‘protect’ her??? I hope the money is worth the drama and there will be more. She showed her true colours by pinning the breakdown of her marriage on Seal who isn’t seen anymore since they broke up. But sure, he’s the ‘difficult’ one. Klum is a Reese Witherspoon 2.0!

    EDIT: and he’s stupid too. Getting romantic with your boss is asking for trouble. In the pictures, he’s not so willing to smile on cue like she can.

    • TG says:

      @NM9005 – I agree 100% can not stand Heidi anymore. Ever since she dumped Seal for the help and tried to make Seal look like a violent a**hole I have not liked her. Looks like she is the violent one and typical behavior blaming it on others. Yuck what a loser. Seal was the best thing to ever happen to her. He took her in and loved her when her gold digging plan fell thru with that billionaire douchebag. How do you have 4 kids with one man, go on and on in interviews about how in love you are and awesome he is, insist on renewing your vows every year and then decide he is violent?

      • aims says:

        I can’t stand Heidi. She’s a total famewhore. She was very in your face with her marriage with Seal. Renewing their vows every year, which is fishy to me. Then her perfect marriage ended because of his temper. So now this story about her drunken stupidity comes out? Maybe she’s the one with the issue?

        She’s so obsessed about being seen and relevant, that she’ll show up to any event. Take a clue Heidi,how about hanging at home for once and not be so obnoxious.

      • Jayna says:

        There was a cute photo of Seal with all four of his kids at the beach or somewhere in Australia right now. He’s back there again working on the next season of the Voice and I guess he has the kids with him for a part of the summer.

    • NM9005 says:

      Wasn’t it Klum who wanted to renew the vows and Seal just went with it? Kinda like their annual Halloween party.
      And then the 100 million quotes about how they met and how she found him so sexy and how passionate they are. All courtesy of Klum because Seal is private. And he hates the paps.

      She indeed tried the model-billionaire thing and she failed. She’s not a good model either so i’m not surprised she ended up so tacky. Then again, tacky is good for gossip. I just hope her children are spared this nonsense.

    • Liv says:

      I know she’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but I don’t know why everyone’s bashing her for her marriage. Seal’s ex-girlfriend said he was pretty violent, so I would be careful to blame just her.

  6. Faye says:

    We have no more proof that this argument happened than we do that Seal was abusive, so I won’t comment on this story. But I will say something about Heidi and Martin just seems very . . .low budget. They give off kind of a skeezy vibe.

  7. Aud says:

    This way she saves money. She has a lover and a bodyguard. Still, I think it’s a bit off to sleep with the ‘staff’.

  8. Barrett says:

    Its clear she has issues; or issues with men. She can’t be alone either. Her track record speaks for itself.

  9. Kiddo says:

    Heidi has lost her appeal, for me. I loved her at the beginning of Project Runway, but now she is everywhere and on everything. She is way overexposed for the level of talent she has, which is basically looking pretty. Too much of a good thing makes it a bad thing.

  10. km says:

    Maybe they were arguing because she made him wear that shirt.

  11. sauvage says:

    I cannot stand her. The End.

    I think she’s fake and potentially dangerous as a role model, just like Tyra Banks. Their model reality shows tell young girls all around the world that you have to be a pushover and allow people to disrespect and humiliate you to make it big. That’s a message I would NOT want my daughter, if I had one, to absorb as one of the truths of life. Heidi Klum is just a very successful biga** bully. Nothing likeable about that.

  12. Maria says:

    Heidi really should have learned from all her failed relationships that its obviously a dumb idea to try to potray that happiness that isnt there in public.

    she seems to be a good business woman which also includes squeezing every drop of money out of the “Germanys next top model” winners and then dropping them.

  13. kct says:

    It’s easy for celebrities to make such poor choices when there are nannies and “bodyguards” to pick up the slack. I have such disrespect for her.

    The fact that she is on America’s Got Talent made me not want to watch this season but the other judges make it tolerable, and they all have good chemistry together. The talent is amazing, so it’s hard not to watch.

  14. Bridget says:

    Just because Heidi is am obvious famewhore doesnt automatically make Seal the aggrieved party in their divorce – by a lot of reports that marriage was never thr fairytale they portrayed it as, but they both made a lot of money off that image. If you remember, he only commented on her relationship with the bodyguard after everyone started talking about his issues with fidelity, and I think the temper thing is pretty well known.

    Heidi in many ways feels like Patient Zero when it comes to the Motherhood Industrial Complex (thanks Lainey), because she didnt truly become famous until She and Seal got together. That wholesome family image resonated so well that its not shocking that she’s trying to recapture it – there’s an awful lot of money wrapped up there.

  16. Kelly says:

    I find it so totally creepy she ended up with her bodyguard. If a man had done this with his nanny, boy! The media would be all over it.
    Blegh.

    As always, poor kids. They end with the short stick with these celeb families.

  17. DreamyK says:

    Am I the only one to think that part of Martin’s appeal is that no matter how tall Heidi’s shes are, Martin still towers over her?

  18. Holden says:

    I’ll take over the security or boyfriend role, for cheap.

  19. Kim says:

    Love her friends quote “all couples get in arguements.” Yes they do but my husband and i have never had one to many & got into a public fight. Very immature for 2 grown adults especially a mother of 4 young children.

  20. madchen says:

    Regardless of what anyone assumes about her life, this is basically a non-story. She’s well known, so a tense moment in public with her boyfriend got her unwelcome exposure. Arguments, even on the rare occasion they take place in front of other people, are unavoidable in any relationship.
