On Wednesday, Heidi Klum appeared on an episode of ‘Katie’ and discussed her relationship with her bodyguard, Martin Kristen. Klum told the host, Katie Couric, that she is currently dating Kristen but never called it a relationship.
“I don’t even know if I can call it that, you know? It just started so I don’t know. I don’t know where it’s gonna go,” Klum said.
“I’ve known him for four years and he’s been with our family for the last four years,” Klum continued. “He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously… I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man, you know, and we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”
In August, Klum was photographed getting a little close with Kristen while the two vacationed in Sardinia with family. Seal, Klum’s estranged husband, then increased the rumors when he told TMZ that he wished Klum would have waited until the couple separated before she started to “fornicate with the help.” It was later cleared up by Seal’s publicist that he was not implying that Klum cheated on him. He meant that it would be nice if she waited until the divorce was final as the couple is separated but still legally married. The couple split in January of this year. Klum said to Couric that Seal used a “unique choice of words.”
“It’s not true. I’ve never looked at another man while I was with him,” she said.
Klum went as far as to say that she believed her marriage was going to be forever.
“I’m someone who believes in a fairy tale and when I said I do, I meant forever,” she said. “But I don’t know… You never know what happens. Life changes. It’s that road with all those bumps and holes and you’re trying to struggle through them. And I don’t know…we just couldn’t make it work, you know?”
