Heidi Klum denies cheating on Seal with their bodyguard
Heidi Klum has hit back at her ex-husband Seal’s claims that she cheated on him with their bodyguard Martin Kristen.
The British singer asserted that his wife has been "fornicating with the help" in a rant which was captured on camera by gossip site TMZ.com.
He claimed: “I would have thought that Heidi would have shown a little more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were."
Rumours started to surface that Heidi and her bodyguard Martin had more than a professional relationship after the pair were photographed on holiday looking very close and intimate with each other.
But the supermodel has hit back at her estranged husband and his offensive comments, denying that their split was due to the alleged affair.
Responding to the accusations, Heidi's spokesman told The Sun: “It’s sad Seal has to resort to this and spread untruths about the mother of his children.”
Since the outburst, Seal has come under fire for his use of the derogatory term “the help”.
He has since issued a statement declaring that his comments were misconstrued.
His spokesperson said: "Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating on him while they were together.
"But rather he was pointing out that they are separated and the divorce is not final so they are legally still married."
The pair split after seven years of marriage in February, shocking Hollywood as they were said to be one of the more stable celebrity couples.
They are currently battling for custody of their four children, Leni,8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5 and 2-year-old daughter Lou.
According to RadarOnline, Heidi and Seal are also fighting for division of assets, with Seal claiming that he is rightfully owed a portion of his successful ex-wife’s $70 million fortune.
