So much for that amicable split. After it was reported on Friday that Heidi Klum was dating her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kristen, her soon-to-be ex-husband Seal had a very bitter response for the mother of his four children. "To be quite honest, if there is going to be somebody else in their lives, I'd much rather it was a familiar face,” the “Kiss From a Rose” singer told TMZ as he made his way through an airport on Saturday. “I guess the only thing I would have preferred is that … I guess I didn't expect any better from him, I would have preferred Heidi show a little bit more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were,” he adds, insinuating that the relationship began before he and Klum announced their split in January. “But I guess you now all have the answer that you've been looking for the past seven months."
According to reports, the “Project Runway” host has been dating Kristen, who she was spotted getting cozy with during a family day at the beach in Sardinia, Italy, this week with her parents and four children just feet away. In one photo, Klum and Kristen are seated side by side on a rock and it looks like she is taking a pic of them on her phone, while in another, he has his arm around her as she smiles. “It's complicated," a friend of Klum tells People. "Their relationship is hard to define."
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel has been growing closer to Kristen ever since she separated from Seal in January. Despite Seal's new cheating claims, Klum, 39, has said the breakup came as a surprise to her and she has reportedly been seeking comfort with her long-time pal during the “difficult time,” adds the People source. "Her inner circle of people she trusts is getting smaller and smaller and he is her No. 1 confidante."
Klum is going to need all the support she can get from Kristen. Radar Online reports that the divorce between her and Seal is starting to get a little nasty -- and that's apparent judging from his outburst on Friday. In addition to fighting over money – the $70 million model insists she and her less-successful ex had no joint assets, which he denies – they’re also going back and forth over their four children: Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. She wants primary physical custody, but Seal believes they should share it 50-50.
