Now Heidi is finally speaking out about the “tornado” of divorce and its aftermath. In the April issue of Elle, the German supermodel and mom of four seems confident and resolved while answering questions about the disintegration of her seven-year marriage.
"To the outside world, you don't really share all the things that happen,” Heidi says, and it’s true. “Heidi and Seal” brings to mind (and Google) a litany of paparazzi photos of the couple smiling with their children in pumpkin patches and interviews in which they gush about their deep love for each other.
"People don't need to know who did what," Heidi explains. "I don't want to talk positive or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we're in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don't think it's necessary for – especially for our children – to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about."
As for Seal’s public discussion of their private life, Heidi says, simply, "He's a grown man. I can't tell him what to do and what not to do.”
