Seal dropped a bombshell when TMZ asked him about Heidi Klum's rumored relationship with her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kristen — or did he?
After photos surfaced of Kristen vacationing in Sardinia with Klum, 39, and her four children, Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2, "Kiss From a Rose" singer Seal, 49, was caught off guard when asked to comment. "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," he told TMZ. "But I guess you now all have the answer that you've been looking for for the past seven months."
On September 1, Klum's rep denied any infidelity on her client's behalf, telling Us Weekly: "It is sad that Seal has to resort to this kind of behavior and spread these untruths about the mother of his children."
The following day, Seal's rep told Us exclusively that 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."
The couple, who announced their split in January, both filed for divorce in April. In the aftermath of Seal's conversation with TMZ, the singer was remorseful, an insider tells Us. "These guys bombarded him and were in his face. He was exhausted, which is why he wants to clarify what he said. . . He doesn't like now being made into the bad guy here — he always loved and cared for Heidi."
