Project Runway host Heidi Klum who is close to reaching a divorce settlement with her ex Seal addressed rumors that she had an affair with her body guard Martin Kristen while still married.
Klum appeared on Katie Couric’s new show Katie to clarify the issue, saying, “When we were together, I never looked at another man.”
The rumors of an affair began to heat up when Klum was spotted cozying up to Kristen in Sardinia, and Seal said to TMX, “I would have thought that Heidi would have shown a little more class and at least waited until we were separated to first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were.” Seal later had to clarify that he wasn’t implying that she had an affair instead was saying that she started the new relationship before they were legally divorce.
In the interview Klum discusses her painful divorce with Couric and said of Seal’s comments, “It was a unique choice of words…. I’m used to it but others aren’t.” The episode airs Wednesday Sept. 12.
Klum and Seal had a post-nuptial agreement when they decided to divorce in April. But the Seal challenged the agreement along with child custody so the couple is still trying to settle.
After Seal made his snarky comments about Klum and Kristen, he also stated that he understands the post-nuptial agreement is binding and has since dropped his challenge.
Divorces can be very messy so many celebrities combat this problem by signing prenuptial agreements. These agreements, although they can be challenged, generally protect a person’s assets and dictate child custody arrangements.
A couple about to tie the knot should consider getting the advice of a divorce attorney and determine if a prenuptial agreement will prevent a protracted divorce.
