Heidi Klum on dating her bodyguard: “Seal has moved on and so have I”

Heidi Klum Seal

Just for reference’s sake, I decided to illustrate this story with a few photos of Seal and Heidi smooching for the cameras while on vacation last August in Porto Cervo, Sardinia. Either things went south very quickly in that marriage (remember, they filed for divorce in January), or they were faking it at that point. Heidi must really like Sardinia though since she just took another vacation there, which resulted in bikini Twitpics and a set of photos that revealed she’s very friendly with her bodyguard.

Then came the public declaration from Seal that, in no uncertain terms, Heidi was banging her bodyguard while they were married (“I would have preferred that Heidi would have shown a little more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help“). And then he also stated that this infidelity was the true reason for their divorce (“I guess you all now have the answer that you’ve been waiting for for the past seven months). It seems like he was making his true feelings known, right? Well then came the obligatory denial from Seal’s camp, sort of an “I didn’t really mean to make anyone believe she was banging the help even though that’s what I said.” Whatever. At this point, I’m sort of disgusted with not only Seal but Heidi as well since she thinks that because Seal is dating chicks, he shouldn’t receive joint custody of their kids. Never mind that she’s free to date her bodyguard, right? Well now Heidi has spoken too, and she’s at least trying to keep it classy right now:

It’s Heidi Klum’s turn to speak.

Three days after her soon-to-be ex-husband, Seal, 49, commented on her rumored relationship with bodyguard Martin Kristen, the Project Runway host issued a statement of her own.

“I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us,” Klum, 39, tells Us Weekly. “Seal has moved on and so have I. My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children.”

A source previously told Us Seal felt ambushed by TMZ while leaving an airport August 31. When TMZ asked Seal to share his thoughts on Klum’s recent vacation in Sardinia with Kristen, he said he “would have preferred Heidi show a little bit more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were.”

Klum’s rep denied any infidelity on her client’s behalf, and Seal’s rep later told Us his words were misconstrued. “Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating while they were together, but he was merely pointing out that their separation and divorce were not final and they are still legally married.”

[From Us Weekly]

From Heidi’s words (“Seal has moved on and so have I“), I gather that she’s delivering an indirect confirmation that both she and Seal have been dating other people since their separation. I also assume that she means that she is currently dating her bodyguard and that she probably had a discussion with Seal that resulted in him delivering his “clarification” about his speech to TMZ a few days ago. We know what he really meant though, and regardless of whether Seal was just blowing off steam or being intentionally nasty, he really should of kept his mouth shut on the matter. After all, Seal and Heidi’s kids are going to read that stuff someday.

    Because that’s what celebs do, right? Keep it classy.

  2. brin says:

    I agree, that statement just made him look bad. They need to put their kids first.

    • T.C. says:

      What about her? She’s been leaking negative things about him to the tabs since the separation. It’s only bad for the kids when he does it not her?

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        I know! What’s with this retroactive continuity that claims that even though she’s been letting horrible things be said about him, she’s never let horrible things be said about him? God knows the man isn’t perfect (I was appalled by his cold, pragmatic response to his part in the Swank Warlord Party Debacle), but someone better give God some information because who would know better about the specifics here than people who don’t know anything of the true nature of their relationship? I’m not saying that people should dismiss what women say if they say that they’re being abused, I’m saying that I don’t understand why people are so eager for it to be true in this case. He had a meltdown, it was gauche, but why re-write the narrative of this split just so the pretty, princess gets rescued from her dragon because last time I checked, he had been largely silent on the matter. Now, there’s a good lap dog, huh? I don’t why his guilt is such a given and so quickly decided as such…oh wait, yes I do. Her camp, however, has been hosting a veritable boy scout convention since the winter. Whether you agree with what one or both people are doing, you can’t just deny facts because you like her better.

        If it turns out that he did, in fact, abuse her, I’ll have a very strong opinion that is decidedly not in his favour, but as of yet I have no solid proof. That burden of proof is on her and at this point the criteria required to verify these allegations have not at present been met. With the considerable resources that everyone in that family has got (meaning that no one would have to escape with naught but the clothes on his/her back with their babies into an uncertain future to mend a whole family’s worth of traumas and operating in survival mode to pull off the amazing and courageous feat of re-building your life and reminding yourself that no one can or should claim and destroy your own dignity) the social fallout may linger longer when the profile is so high, but there will always be somewhere to stay and to stay in comfort, always.

        I don’t even think that a lot people care about the final outcome because the intense desire people seem to have for him to be crowned ‘Worst Man In History’ has willed desire into being.

        I know volleys of criticism will land at my feet because I’m selling out all of womanhood, or that I’m distorting the facts (facts? What a ‘facts’?) to suit my own ‘I will not get over whatever this ‘it’ is’ agenda. It will then be shown that I’m making people out to have been saying something they didn’t say at all and that misrecogntion will reveal something nasty about my own character. Why, I may as well have put the boxing gloves on him or prove how awesome I am by volunteering to be his next punching bag. Of course, that’ll all be crap because I don’t think there’s a problem with wanting to know if this is truly true before before we burn him at the stake.

        Being a wife-beater is one of the most disgusting, backwards, cowardly, cruel, stupid and infuriating things that a man can be and it’s because it’s so horrible and because we do know that all parties involved in this debacle have the luxury of being safe from each other’s physical and otherwise aggression that I will wait to pass judgement. A hunch, unnamed ‘sources’ tabloid rags–that’s not enough, not for something of the magnitude of spousal abuse accusations from and towards strangers? I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Please don’t let this be true’, because you don’t just come back with some dumb non-apology and magically convince me that you were the victim because of a troubled past or whatever kind of crap. I do feel like I’m hearing a lot of ‘Of course it’s true, I told you, didn’t I tell you, of course he did it, look at the way he looks at things, with his eyes and stuff. He’s too arrogant to have a soul, his arch demeanor is definitive proof of his guilt. Confirmation-free vindication– at last, an affirmation!’

        Now, after so many instances of ‘oh, it’s just gossip, you don’t actually believe it’, this case has revealed gossip is suddenly gospel. I must have missed that choir practice. I mean, my Lord, there was little more than a peep in response to that psycho who tossed the body of his son’s mothers on some unmarked hill, but this *may* have happened and now it’s World War Camelot.

        They could just explore the possibility of staying quiet.

    Yeah she’s moved on. Right underneath the bodyguard. Which I can’t really blame her. Life is short. And women have to make the best of their options.

    And Seal. British Bitterness sans the stiff upper lip. The next words I expect to hear from him are grumblings about class and good breeding.

    By all accounts he’s an emotional storm that Heidi’s weathered for years. Peace is not just something for countries or in retreats.

    And another thing. It sounds like Heidi just fell out of love with Seal because of all of his rage and anger, but, couldn’t she have put her feelings and needs aside when the rages first started happening and spared the children this very bad home environment and first example?

    People always say they are doing this for the children. BS. If they were doing this for the children, then they would have done this long ago when all the affection, love and sexual need for the other person was still strong.

    I would love to hear of a woman or man who said “I love you and need you sooo much, but you are just wrecking the stable, peaceful home of our children and we need to separate for their sake.”

  4. Bad Irene says:

    “My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children.” And theres Her volley right back to him, to keep him in check. Also maybe a little reminder of who the earner in the household was and that she is not dependent on him.

  5. Astrid says:

    I sort of feel like she had it coming, considering how in your face their loving relationship was supposed to be.

  6. mln76 says:

    Cant wait to hear what Lainey has to say about this she called the affair with the bodyguard months ago within a couple weeks of the split.

  7. Bluedog says:

    It just disgusts me that Seal called the bodyguard “the help”. Classist snob.

    • someone says:

      I had that same thought!! money does not buy you class or intellect it seems in the celebrity world…

  8. Lola says:

    *insert Seal clubbing joke*

  9. NM6804 says:

    So she’s admitting that what he said bares some truth? And he’s still the bad guy I guess?

    Seal did not move on immediately like she allegedly did with the bodyguard. He had some hopes for a reconciliation but all those tab stories implied that Klum had moved on and now that he called her out, she tries to spin it as if he dated too. If he’s going out with women NOW and she wants full custody because of that then that means he didn’t date when they split up.

    We don’t see Seal vacationing with a woman when his children are present (and playing with them) so what’s Klum’s deal? She deceived him, that’s not moving on.

    They both need to shut up now before it gets really dramatic.

    • Kim says:

      Team Seal I wonder if she pays her BG before or after sex.A BG is like a nanny I wonder if she would be OK with him doing the nanny.Those kids have known that BG for most of their lives now mommy is dating him.Who’s next the chef? Dont sleep with The Help

  10. Madpoe says:

    Well he’s never gonna survive unless he gets a little crazy, right?

  11. Nina says:

    She sounds like she used him and dumped him albeit before his sale by date because he was no longer toeing the line and she did not need him any more. She was over Briatorre’s dumping and her image is intact now. Dare I think she was faking this whole skit from the start? He seems nice but with anger issues.

  12. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    I’ve always liked Heidi’s public image but at the same time there is something off about her

  13. OXA says:

    I was disgusted when watching him doing interviews right after the split to promote his album. I saw him on Piers Morgan where he plugged his album while saying that his THREE children were his primary focus. duhhh what about Leni the child Heidi was pregnant with when they got together he was at the birth and he adopted her. I could not believe my ears as he dropped that little bomb repeatedly.
    He acts like a nastly little boy not a 50 year old man with kids who are affected by his rants & rages.

  14. Nev says:

    don’t cheat!

  15. hopperlea says:

    This does prove a theory that for many couples, including celebs, that once the baby making of many kids in a short period of time is over, the relationship goes bad quickly.

  16. Toot says:

    Lainey just publicly confirmed her BI was about Heidi. That was a sad blind on many levels. Those poor kids. Heidi is a real piece of work.

  17. sunshine says:

    Is it just me or do they look alike? Their facial features are so similar, their noses are almost identical and they both have that big mouth…maybe that’s what they saw in each other. Supposedly all the best couples look alike…although I guess they’re not a “best couple” any longer. A little off topic but it’s been bugging me for a while and I don’t really care about their divorce/relationship all that much.

  18. Snookie Wookie says:

    I dated Martin a few years ago while he was working for Heidi. He ADORES her and my first thought upon hearing of the split was “Whoa, I wonder if Martin had anything to do with it.” He is a great guy and I’m sure he’ll treat her well. From what he shared with me he had a lot of respect for Seal and Heidi’s marriage, but it was also blatantly obvious that he was stupid in love with her. No idea when they took that to the next level but I’m not surprised in the least.

  19. Kosmos says:

    At the beginning of their split, I do not recall either one saying negatives about the other, only that “things change, people change” and they felt it was in their best interests to split..but then it came out, and I think people just knew, that Seal had a bad temper and that seemed to be one of the causes of the breakup. Heidi may have gotten together with her bodyguard, but not until “after” the split, but I believe that Seal was just showing his worst side when he even mentioned it and referred to the bodyguard as “the help,” which really says a lot about Seal. It was a careless and disrespectful thing to say.
