In a new video interview with TMZ, singer Seal doesn't hold back when asked about the end of his marriage with supermodel and Project Runway host Heidi Klum.
Rumor has it that Heidi is now dating her bodyguard, Martin Kristen. Though there's been no official confirmation of their relationship status, a source close to Heidi tells People that the relationship is "complicated" and "hard to define" which makes it sound like they might not be officially together, but probably aren't just friends, either.
TMZ caught Seal while he was at the airport, so of course they asked him about Heidi's rumored new relationship. Seal's response is very interesting, to say the least.
"As always my main priority is the emotional well being of our children," Seal says, after noting that people move on and he never expected Heidi to "become a nun." "And to be quite honest, if there is going to be somebody else in their lives, I'd much rather it was a familiar face."
So far, so good, right? But then Seal adds, "I guess the only thing I would have preferred is … I would have thought Heidi would have shown a little bit more class in at least waiting until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were. But I guess you now all have the answer that you've been looking for for the past seven months."
Whoa. Harsh words, Seal! But is he actually saying that Heidi cheated on him with Martin?
Many are taking Seal's comments to mean that Heidi started sleeping with Martin before she and Seal separated back in January. Some even interpret "you now all have the answer that you've been looking for" as Seal's way of saying "this is why we broke up."
However, it's worth noting that despite announcing the separation in January, Heidi did not officially file for divorce until April, and the divorce is reportedly getting pretty messy. It's quite possible that any relationship she may have with Martin didn't start until after the first announcement, and Seal just means that he wishes Heidi would hold off on moving on until the dust is fully settled.
UPDATE 1: A friend close to Heidi tells TMZ that, according to Heidi, her relationship with her bodyguard was "strictly professional” while she was still with Seal.
UPDATE 2: Heidi's rep gave a statement to Us Weekly on her behalf: "It is sad that Seal has to resort to this kind of behavior and spread these untruths about the mother of his children."
