Heidi Klum promotes her daughter selling Girl Scout Cookies, then takes her kids to lunch in Brentwood
Heidi Klum hasn’t spoken a word since her shocking split from husband Seal.
In a new interview with Elle Magazine, the supermodel confessed that the fall-out from her divorce has been an “emotional tornado.”
“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness – with you wanting it or not wanting it (sic) – is another tornado.
“I don’t want to talk positively 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 – especially for our children – to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
Heidi, 38, and Seal, 49, were married in 2005 in Mexico after dating for a year. They announced their split on January 23, saying, “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.”
In the following days Seal, whose real name is Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel, appeared on a number of talk shows, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he spoke of his love for his wife and their vow to remain “civil” for the sake of their children.
They have three children together – Henry, six, Johan, five, and Lou, two. Seal also adopted Klum’s seven-year-old daughter Leni from her previous relationship with Formula One entrepreneur Flavio Briatore.
Speaking to Elle, the Project Runway host seemed to acknowledge the situation with her ex was tough.
“He’s going to be 50 next year,” she said of Seal. “He’s a grown man. I can’t tell him what to do and what not to do. It’s hard.”
“I feel like already so many things are being said about us – about him, about me,” she added.
“I’m not going to comment. Otherwise it makes you angry. You can’t always call and say, ‘This is not true, but this is true.’
“People don’t need to know who did what. But I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them. I don’t want to talk about them, or him, or me.”
I do feel for her. It must be so hard to have to deal with something like this while in the public eye!
Heidi’s daughter Leni is stunning! She’s going to be gorgeous like her momma!
PS: I wonder if Heidi’s going to have that Seal tattoo removed from her forearm. That would be so painful, it’s so big!
Seal is still out promoting his new album and he shared with Fifi & Jules on Australian radio station 2Day FM why he chose to be interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres and Piers Morgan right after announcing the split from his wife, Heidi Klum:
“I was booked to do the Ellen (DeGeneres) show and booked to do the Piers Morgan show three months in advance because I had a record to promote, it’s not like this thing happened and then I decided next week that I wanted to go on their shows. These people are my friends I’ve know them for a long time and as well as respecting their integrity there are a lot of people who were genuinely saddened by the fact my wife and I had decided to go our separate ways. While they don’t really have the right to know details of our private life, I felt that those people at least had a right to some kind of explanation. When you publicize your marriage as much as our marriage was publicised, when you renew wedding vows, when you do all those things you are giving them a picture of an ideal relationship, of a relationship that people aspire towards, so when it goes south you can’t all of a sudden take the philosophy of Celestine monk and decide to go for a vow of silence, it doesn’t really work like that. And while I respect my wife’s decision not to talk about it, I felt that people at least deserved some kind of explanation.”
Seal hopes that his children will come through this divorce with minimal disruption to their lives:
“It’s a difficult time, the best that one can do in these situations is handle it with dignity, and handle it with civility as much as you can. I’ve tried my very best to protect the general welfare of my family, my wife included, you know it is a difficult time and you hope you will behave like adults and protect those who are most important in this, who are your family, that bit of it doesn’t actually change.”
The red carpet fashion at last night’s Golden Globes was pretty tame, much like the broadcast itself. Lea Michele’s gown was about the riskiest thing there! Even Tilda Swinton, who usually brings the funk, played it safe with her wardrobe and hair.
There are a TON of photos, so I’ll break it up into a few posts for you! Check out the gallery and share your thoughts!
