Heidi Klum used to date Anthony Kiedis: ‘We had a very special time together’

Do you guys remember that Heidi Klum dated Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers? I did not remember that. In fact it’s not even on her Wiki page. Judging from photographs, they dated in 2002 and 2003. Kiedis recently called his time with Heidivery intense,” he called her “the hottest woman in the world,” and said that their relationship was “one of the most beautiful memories in my life.” He heaped a lot of praise on Heidi and called himself “a selfish ass,” which suggests he screwed it up somehow and still regrets it today.

Back then Heidi was just out of “a broken marriage,” according to Kiedis, which would have been her first marriage, to Ric Pipino, a stylist to whom she was married from 1997 to 2002. After that was Kiedis I guess and then she got pregnant in 2003 by uber-wealthy Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, 23 years her senior. They broke up when Heidi was pregnant, she met Seal right around then and the rest you either about or have lost interest in. So Heidi, 43, has a complicated love life. She’s currently dating a 29 year-old art dealer named Vito Schnabel and they’ve been together about two and a half years by my count. There were other relationships in there I haven’t mentioned, so given Heidi’s history I’m not surprised to hear that she loves being in love but has ruled out marriage. That’s probably for the best. Heidi said this in an interview with People promoting her new lingerie. She also was flattered to hear that Kiedis said so many nice things about her.

“I’m definitely someone who loves life and I love love,” [Heidi] says. Musician Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers recently said that his relationship with Klum was “one of the most beautiful memories of his life.” When Klum found out, she says she was flattered. “Obviously, it’s very nice when you still get along with your ex in a way or someone you have dated in the past,” she says. “And you know, we had a very special time together. I never really thought that anyone knew anything about that. It’s funny that he brings it up after so many years.”

As for current boyfriend Vito Schnabel, 29, she’s thrilled with their relationship. “I love being in love, like when you have butterflies in your stomach and when you feel great. I celebrate all the romance — I’m quite old-fashioned that way. I don’t know, I love enjoying life and celebrating the love and being happy.”

Does that mean she’ll consider walking down the aisle again? Not necessarily. “I’ve done it twice and it didn’t really work out for me, so why hurt something when it’s all good the way it is,” she says. “I like it the way things are right now.”

[From People]

Heidi Klum is one of those women who seems to fall in love with being in love and she doesn’t have a type. She doesn’t date just wealthy men, she doesn’t date men who are only older or younger than her, and she doesn’t date only European men (she’s German). Heidi falls for all sorts of guys and she’s a serial monogamist until she meets the next one, whether there’s cheating involved or not. (Seal has said that she was cheating on him with the family’s bodyguard, and that could have been the case because she ended up dating that guy for a while.) I don’t abide cheaters if that’s what was going on but at least she’s self aware enough to know she shouldn’t get married again.

This is Heidi and her current boyfriend, Vito Schnabel, at Wimbledon. They are ridiculous:

    I like her style. That’s all I got

  2. Maria says:

    she certainly is not a visual person when it comes to men.

  3. littlemissnaughty says:

    Oh my god, that outfit in the pic with Kiedis is so 2002, I love it.

  4. Melody says:

    I’d love to have a very special time with Keidis…and then some very special antibiotics, etc.

  5. HH says:

    “I love being in love, like when you have butterflies in your stomach and when you feel great.” >>> I think after you’ve had a few great relationships and children, you get to this point. I’m almost 30, and dating right now is not a “whatever happens, happens” thing for me because I do want a family. It’s more like “we’re either going to break up or get married. So let me know when ASAP when you feel one way or the other.” Like, I don’t even fear the heartbreak, I fear the waste of time. Ugh.

    Ooooh, ya’ll messy for shading Anthony like that!

    I liked the idea of Heidi and Anthony together because she was an adult when they dated. He tends to date girl-women fresh out of high school.

    I wonder what songs he wrote about her. He writes beautiful lyricd about his exes and fallen friends.

    • Laura says:

      Good point! I love AK, but I do hate how it seems like he only dates girls that are barely 20 .

    • Locke Lamora says:

      He does write beautiful lyrics about his exes. I love him and the RHCP so much. Best band in the world.

    • Erinn says:

      I know… his interest in women barely in their 20′s disturbs me. I can’t give him a pat on the back for it … but I also think the guy has some pretty deep issues. I don’t know. He did a lot of drugs when he was REALLY young… he had a horrible father. I feel like there’s a possibility he’s a bit stunted emotionally from the drug use and how he grew up. I think he genuinely feels head over heels in love with these women, but at the end of the day, it’s really not age appropriate no matter how someone feels.

      His writing though? It’s beautiful. And to my knowledge he tends to speak pretty positively about exes in general. He seems like when it comes down to it, he’s an intelligent, nice guy. He isn’t without issues though.

  7. jane says:

    her bodyguard was one hot dude. she dated him as long as she needed him and then threw him away, he was fine and do wonder what happened to him

  8. Snowflake says:

    Didn’t Brandi date that Vito guy? I don’t get the fuss about him, does nothing for me.

  9. Kelly says:

    She and Christie Brinkley should go for drinks and compare notes.

  10. LAK says:

    Never thought it was an actual relationship. Thought it was a hook up or a fling at best.

  11. HK9 says:

    It’s kind of nice to hear when people can still say genuinely nice things about each other when the relationship is over.

  12. Jayna says:

    Heidi has a zest for life that I always admire. She never really whines or complains how she is perceived for the most part, if at all. She is who she is, and as someone in the public eye, if some people don’t like her or show she lives her life at times, she couldn’t care less.

  13. EmmGee says:

    Confession–I once drove 700 miles to visit my best friend who lived in LA because she wanted to set
    me up with a friend of hers who “looked just like that hot guy from RHCP.” Early 90′s pre-internet, face time, etc, so no way to verify her assessment of said hot guy. The resemblance stopped at the hair; dude was like 4 inches and 30 lbs smaller than me, and I’m not a big person. I could’ve worked with the pocket-sized Anthony but he was an utter douche the entire time I was in LA with my friend. As I was leaving, he told me the only reason he agreed to go out with me was to make his girlfriend jealous. I never let a friend set me up again. Fortunately she and I are still close and can laugh about it now!

  14. LR says:

    Nope…I can’t abide Heidi Klum. Definitely the definition of thirsty.

  15. Suzanne says:

    She has the prettiest eyes and hands….Her fingers are so long and elegant looking.
    Everything about her is pretty! l’ve always admired her beauty.

  16. sequinedheart says:

    I can’t get past his Motorola Razr. ugh I pine for the early 2000′s hahahahaha
    But seriously – I remember this and I remember liking it. They are on the same weird kinky wavelength and I felt like that could have been long-term solid, Like Rod & Penny.
    I get why people don’t like her but I think she is self aware, beyond getting married again. also in her career & if that makes her thirsty than so be it. She can’t be alone – I don’t relate but I don’t find anything wrong with it either.
