said in an exclusive statement to People magazine that she has truly moved on from her relationship with ex-husband Seal. The supermodel made the revelation in response to recent comments by Seal that his estranged wife cheated on him while the two were still married.
"I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years," 39-year-old Klum said in a statement to People magazine. "Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I. My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children."
Heidi Klum's statement comes in the wake of rumors suggesting that she was dating her bodyguard, Martin Kristen. When TMZ asked Seal about his opinion concerning her rumored relationship, he said, "Look, boys, you know that's what happens when two people separate. They move on and that generally means other people in their lives. I certainly don't expect Heidi to all of a sudden become a nun."
And then the 49-year-old “Kiss from a Rose” singer blasted the “Project Runway” host by saying, "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. But I guess you now have the answer you've been looking for, for the past seven months."
The comments gave rise to speculation that Seal was accusing his ex-wife of infidelity. However, his representative set the matter straight in a statement to Us Weekly, saying, "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 were not final and they are still legally married."
Heidi Klum also denied allegations that she was unfaithful to the soul singer and her representative said in a statement to Us Weekly, "It is sad that Seal had to resort to this kind of behavior and spread these untruths about the mother of his children.”
Seal and Hedi Klum, who were considered to have one of the most rock-solid marriages in showbiz, announced the end of their seven-year relationship in January.
"We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much," they told PEOPLE at the time. "Protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority."
