Heidi Klum has spoken out regarding comments made by her soon-to-be ex-husband, Seal, which claimed the supermodel mom had a relationship with her bodyguard prior to her and Seal’s separation.
“It is sad that Seal has to resort to false accusations,” a rep for Heidi told Access Hollywood on Saturday in response to the “Kiss from a Rose” singer’s claim that Heidi had an affair with her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kristen.
On Friday, Seal was asked by reporters what he thought of his ex’s rumored new relationship with Martin after photographers captured the “Project Runway” host with her arm around the bodyguard during a family vacation in Italy last week.
“To be quite honest, if there is going to be somebody else in [my children’s] lives, I’d much rather it was a familiar face,” Seal told TMZ, when asked about Heidi’s possible involvement with Martin. “I guess the only thing I would have preferred is that — I guess I didn’t expect any better from him, I 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.”
Adding, “But I guess you now all have the answer that you’ve been looking for for the past seven months.”
Heidi and Seal announced their separation in January after seven years of marriage.
The former couple has four children together — Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
