Heidi and Seal

Close to Divorce

SETTLEMENT

9/5/2012 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0905_seal_article_tmzHeidi Klum and Seal are close to settling their divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Seal tell TMZ ... the singer is fully on board to end the marriage and now fully recognizes that the postnuptial agreement he signed is enforceable and will be "substantially honored."

As you know ... Seal erupted over the weekend, accusing Heidi of banging the bodyguard before the couple separated.  But our sources say Seal retracted his comment a day later, because he didn't want the divorce negotiations to become acrimonious. 

As we first reported ... Seal was pissed early on in the divorce and tried challenging the postnup, but he has since come around.

Heidi Klum

Gives NEW

Bodyguard a Shot

9/5/2012 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090512_klum_splash_launchHeidi Klum knows ... you can't mix business with pleasure ... and that's probably why she just swapped out the bodyguard she's allegedly fornicating with for a couple of new guys.

Klum arrived to the ABC studios in New York City yesterday -- looking DAMN GOOD -- and accompanied by two brand new security monsters.

As we previously reported, Martin Kristen was guarding Heidi's body as recently as last week ... right before Seal told TMZ they were banging each other.

But, since Klum clearly has a thing for hired muscle ... you think it's wise for Kristen to leave his woman in other people's hands?

Protecting Heidi's Body

... Just Last Week

9/4/2012 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090412-klum-x17-launch-2_arrows_v2Heidi Klum and her bodyguard returned from Spain together just last week ... looking more like a couple than a boss and her employee.

The footage of Heidi and Martin Kristen was taken at LAX on August 28 ... after coming back from a trip to Sardinia ... where the two were seen looking pretty affectionate on the beach.

We broke the story ... Seal claimed Klum was bangin' Kristen while she was still with the singer, though Heidi insists there was no such fornicating while they were together.

Seal used Kristen to guard HIS body as recently as last month ... though we're guessing those days are over ... 'cause it's probably really awkward now.

We Share the Bodyguard

Who's Nailing My Wife

EXCLUSIVE

0903_seal_ffnSeal and Heidi Klum may be headed for divorce, but they're still sharing things ... for example, the bodyguard she's shagging.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Seal hired the bodyguard -- Martin Kristen -- several years ago, and since then he has worked for both Seal and Heidi.  In fact, we're told he actually has spent more time with Seal.

Now here's where it gets just plain weird.  Our sources say ... Seal has known that something was going on between Heidi and Martin for months, yet he continued to use his services -- as recently as last month.

TMZ broke the story ... Seal believed Heidi was "fornicating with the help" before they separated.  He tried backtracking, but his new story (that he meant to say "divorced" rather than separated) doesn't make any sense.

For her part, Heidi claims she never cheated on Seal while they were together.

For Martin's part, he gets a salary and a hot chick.  He wins.

I've Moved On

9/3/2012 12:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0903_heidi_seal_tmz_gettyHeidi Klum is now speaking out in this latest battle between herself and Seal, stating the obvious ... the pair have moved on.

Following Seal's comments about "fornicating with the help" -- and his subsequent backtracking -- Heidi released a statement today saying, "I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I."

She continued, "My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children."

As TMZ first reported, the divorce proceedings have been rocky ... with Seal going after a huge chunk of Heidi's $70 million fortune.

An Angry Seal

Is After Me!

9/3/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0902_klum_seal_getty_tmz Seal went after Heidi Klum’s fortune out of anger and jealousy ... sources intimately familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Heidi is telling close friends Seal made outrageous property settlement demands when she filed for divorce, despite the couples post-nuptial agreement. Heidi claims Seal asked for a huge chunk of her $70 million fortune and she believes it was all rooted in blind jealously.

We're told Seal has since backed off his financial demands, but Heidi is telling friends, it's all part of Seal's M.O. -- to lash out when he's pissed. The anger, Heidi says, is why their marriage fell apart.

Heidi is telling her confidantes ... Seal’s interview with TMZ, in which he accuses her of "fornicating with the help" during their marriage, was aggressively designed to hurt and embarrass her. Sources close to the couple tell TMZ although Seal is publicly trashing his estranged wife, he would take her back in a second.

Based on what we’re hearing, Seal shouldn’t hold his breath.

Jetting Out of Town ...

Without the Bodyguard

9/3/2012 7:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0903_heidi_klum_splashHeidi Klum was seen at the crack of dawn this morning at LAX catching a flight out of town ... and with all the attention surrounding her new bodyguard beau ... he was nowhere to be found.

TMZ posted a video over the weekend of Seal calling out Heidi for "fornicating with the help" while they were still married. A rep fo the singer backed off those remarks, saying, "he was not implying his wife was cheating while they were together."

Our sources say Heidi and the bodyguard have gotten "very close" since her split with Seal, but their relationship remains "undefined."

I Wasn't Saying

Heidi Klum Cheated!

9/2/2012 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_seal_video
When Seal said he wished Heidi Klum "at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help" ... he didn't mean to say he thought she cheated on him while they were together ... this according to Seal's rep.  You confused?  Keep reading, but you may not buy it.

TMZ posted the video yesterday (see above) of Seal talking about Heidi's relationship with her bodyguard. He said Heidi lacked class and pretty plainly claimed Heidi's cheating broke up the marriage.

But Seal's rep now says that's not what he meant, telling TMZ, "Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating while they were together, but he was merely pointing out that their separation and divorce are not yet final and they are indeed still legally married."

Yes, we're perplexed too. The words "waited until we separated" are pretty straightforward.

I Didn't Cheat

on Seal with My Bodyguard

EXCLUSIVE

0901_tmz_heidi_klum_bodyguard_seal_tmzSeal’s accusation that Heidi Klum cheated on him during their marriage is absolutely false ... at least that’s what Heidi is telling close friends.

TMZ posted a video this morning in which Seal said straight out said Heidi was screwing the bodyguard while they were together --- and that is why their marriage fell apart.

Heidi told one close friend today her relationship with the bodyguard was "strictly professional" while she was with Seal.

The friends tell us that since the split, Heidi says she has gotten "very close" to the bodyguard ... who has helped her through the difficulties of ending a marriage

As for the nature of their relationship now ... all the friend would say is it's "undefined." So that's what the kids are calling it these days.

Heidi's friend adds, "It’s sad but not surprising that he would resort to making excuses for their divorce when the real reason is looking him in the mirror."

'Fornicate with the Help'

EXCLUSIVE

0901_seal_video_2Seal opened up in a shocking way last night, accusing Heidi Klum of banging her bodyguard during their marriage and alleging that's why they broke up.

The singer says ... by "fornicating with the help," Heidi clearly shows she lacks class.

Klum has been seen with the bodyguard more frequently lately ... the two were spotted walking alone together in New York City just a few weeks back (see below).

Heidi separated from Seal in January and filed for divorce in April. As we first reported, Heidi's story is that she couldn't handle Seal's explosive temper. At the time they separated, we're told Seal was desperately trying to save the marriage.

Things change.

0901_heidi_klum_bodyguard_GRPRHeidi Klum did not seemed fazed by Seal's claim she cheated on him "with the help" during their marriage ... because she seemed carefree as she had breakfast with the help/bodyguard in Beverly Hills today. 

Seal told TMZ last night at LAX ... she was "fornicating" with the bodyguard during the marriage and that's what broke it up. Seal added that Heidi lacked class.

Heidi -- who was joined by her kids for the Bev Hills meal -- claims Seal explosive temper torpedoed the marriage.

I Don't Want to Get

Married Again

0707_heidi_klum_tmz
Sorry guys, if your dream is to snag smokin hot Heidi Klum now that she's a single lady ... think again, because the super model says she doesn't plan on getting married again.

In a recent interview with Bild am Sonntag (a German newspaper, duh) ... Klum addressed her current divorce with Seal -- whom she was married to for 7 years -- and how it has changed her views on tying the knot.

Klum says, "I do not know if I would still get married. Although I really liked being married. I am a dreamer. I loved our annual fairytale weddings that were our big family gatherings. But then somehow it has unfortunately not worked."

Although the "Project Runway" guru isn't planning to settle down ... she did add, "I look forward, I concentrate on my family, and I must say, I'm happy."

You know what makes us happy ... her twit pics, like the one below.

EXCLUSIVE

Seal's new girlfriend?Seal's officially done mourning the death of his marriage to Heidi Klum ... 'cause the singer has moved on to a smokin' hot brunette who looks damn good in a bikini ... and TMZ has the pics.

Just 3 months after Heidi filed for divorce, an extra-sweaty Seal was spotted on a yacht in Italy this week ... gettin' all kissy kissy with a mystery babe after a quick workout session on the deck. 

There was cuddling ... there was smiling ... but there was no sign of Seal's wedding ring.

TMZ broke the story, Heidi decided to break off the marriage because she got sick of Seal's explosive temper. The couple later released a joint statement saying they had simply "grown apart."

Meanwhile, Heidi ain't lookin' so bad either ... and made sure the world knew it on July 4th ... when she tweeted out this photo of her insane supermodel physique.

Damn.
