Heidi Klum confirms split with Vito Schnabel after three years together

Heidi Klum, 44, and Vito Schnabel, 31, have been together way longer than I expected, or I would assume anyone expected. It’s been over three years since they were first spotted together and since they first got serious. They’ve had well-photographed beach vacations, they’ve used social media to declare their love, and they’ve gone to many red carpet events together. Vito, who is known for romancing older famous women, was photographed earlier this summer kissing a woman he characterized as an “old family friend,” in a situation he claimed was innocent. Sources told People at the time that Heidi and Vito were still loved-up and were fine, but she stopped posting about him on social media and I assumed they had cooled off. We heard rumors a couple of weeks ago that they were “on a break” and now Heidi has confirmed that they are no longer together:

Heidi Klum and Vito Schnabel are officially calling it quits.

The German supermodel, 44, tells PEOPLE: “I believe that it is important to take time to pause and reflect.”

Earlier this month, a source told PEOPLE that Klum and Schnabel, 30, were “taking time apart.”

“Things have been difficult recently, they live on opposite coasts,” the source said at the time. “And it’s the start of a school year and Heidi has to concentrate on the kids.”

Klum just recently wrapped up season 12 of America’s Got Talent, where she serves as a judge. Last weekend the supermodel headed to L.A. where she walked the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards solo.

In June, Schnabel was spotted kissing another woman in London in what he previously told PEOPLE was an “innocent situation…”

I admire that brief statement from Heidi. She’s not my favorite person, but there’s so much possible shade in that sentence. It reads like “What the hell was I thinking? Maybe I should think about this finally.” So did Vito cheat on Heidi and did she finally wise up to the extent of his cheating? Did they just grow apart? I’m mildly interested in the details although I really want to know the overall dynamics of their relationship. Vito seems like the type of guy who makes powerful women think he’s in charge despite how much younger he is.

This is Heidi at the Emmy Awards in a red low cut gown by Dundas. We didn’t cover her fashion because she’s nothing if not predictable. This isn’t over-the-top fug though so I guess that’s an improvement.

    He ugly.
    That’s all.

  2. MeowuiRose says:

    She looks like an older version of Audrina Patridge in the red dress. Also, the makeup isn’t her best. It makes her look very tired.

  3. QueenB says:

    Is he preying on older desperate ladies or how does a guy with that face get laid? I know he has a rich dad but all these women are also rich themselves.

    • Huckle says:

      Heidi Klum is hardly desperate! Maybe he’s well hung and/or good in bed and smart? I mean, just because he’s not GQ model action doesn’t mean anything.

  4. Nicole says:

    Well he was cheating on her for a while so…

  5. Giulia says:

    Her RC is cray, but her street game is always on point

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Right? she looks amazing in the black outfit with the ripped jeans. I have a soft spot for her and I really hope she finds a partner who appreciates her and makes her happy.

  6. Lolo86lf says:

    I love Heidi Klum and it saddens me that she cannot find the love of her life. She needs to find her soul mate. Hopefully someone who is about her age and has his own money. Heidi is a wonderful human being and she deserves happiness. She is a vibrant beautiful woman.

  7. Tila says:

    She looks so so good in jeans.

  8. Maria F. says:

    i did not like him for her. Something about his face gives me bad vibes.

    I am already moving on and wondering who will be her next partner, although i am not even sure when she has time for love. She hosts AGT, Project Runway and Germany’s next Topmodel (although that is mostly filmed in LA). When does she see her kids?

  9. Barrett says:

    He looks like a kid playing grown up?

  10. Birdie says:

    Ugh, why am I into his looks though? Everyone else seems to think he is ugly.

    • M. says:

      I don’t think he’s ugly…plus it’s not always about looks right? It’s quite often about money lol. Heidi isn’t exactly known for dating the most handsome guys in the world anyway…I think people forget that pretty quick.

      • perplexed says:

        Most models date kind of “ugly” guys. Although maybe the women are so pretty the guys end up looking homely by comparison and by accident.

    • StormsMama says:

      I agree
      I think he has a Jon favreau thing: confidence and passion
      But that’s obviously not a popularl opinion lol

      Also perplexed I lol’ed at your comment

  11. Annabelle Bronstein says:

    Like Tyra Banks, I admire her post-supermodel hustle! Heidi got out at the right time, picked projects people love, and has a pretty witty personality. She definitely picks her projects better than her men!

    • Elisa the I. says:

      See, that’s what I don’t get as well. She comes across as smart and savvy and with a good sense of humor. It seems her man picker is somehow off.

  12. CharlieBouquet says:

    He looks like he can rock knock the headboard. But he has a mean look and cocky jaw thing.

  13. Cheeky Squirrel says:

    Can someone please explain the attraction to this guy!? There are plenty of rich and good looking guys out there for women like her and Demi Moore, and yet they hook up with this dude.

  14. STRIPE says:

    I don’t think Halle Berry is single. Didn’t she just debut a new BF on Instagram?

  15. Leonz says:

    that pic in february he is leaning far away from her. Just shows that no matter how gorgeous you are, guys are only faithful as their options. She can do better.

  16. Lisa says:

    Omg, Julian Schnabel has a son?!

  17. Pandy says:

    Aw, thought these two would stand the test of time!

  18. Minnieder says:

    The red dress would be fine minus the droopy boobs

    • trh says:

      i thought this said droopy hoops when I first read it….

      anyway, minus the droopy hoops and the bracelets

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    HEIDI! Vito has his art collection and he collected YOU! Move on!

  20. hey-ya says:

    …Im the other way round…I think 3 years is more than enough for this relationship…whatever it was…

  21. angie0717 says:

    She cheated on her. There is photographic evidence of this. Want more, b more Heidi. Upwards and onwards!

  22. magnoliarose says:

    Heidi for some reason likes men who are incapable of deep love and kindness. I do wonder if Seal so damaged her that she hasn’t been able to pick anyone for the right reasons.
    Her breasts are natural, so they hang, we are so used to implants that it looks odd, but I am glad to see reality and not fakery. Hate the dress, and that makes them look funny, I hope she doesn’t give in and shove some silicon in them.

  23. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    He is ugly, but she doesn’t seem to go for looks. The sad thing is this one seems to have a crappy personality too.
