Seal has moved to clarify recent comments he made to Tmz.com about the reason for his split from model ex-wife Heidi Klum. In a video posted on Friday (September 1, 2012), the singer-songwriter said he wished Heidi would have waited until they had separated before "fornicating with the help" - thought to refer to her bodyguard Martin Kristen.
After making his way through an airport terminal, the 'Kissed by a Rose' singer stunned fans by telling a cameraman, "Whilst I didn't expect any better from him, I would have thought Heidi would have shown a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were". Now, in a statement to People magazine, Seal's representative says his remarks were misconstrued, explaining, "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". Seal and Klum split in January 2012 after seven years of marriage, however, the divorce is still pending.
Heidi Klum's bodyguard has been spotted more regularly with the German born model in recent weeks. The pair were spotted alone in New York last month, fuelling speculation of a possible romance.
