Seal’s rep issued a statement to People about his remarks regarding Heidi Klum:
“Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating on him while they were together,” said the statement. “But rather he was pointing out that they are separated and the divorce is not final so they are legally still married.”
Heightening what has fast become a dramatic and bitter breakup, Seal has publicly lambasted Heidi Klum over rumors that she is romantically involved with her bodyguard.
“I didn’t expect any better from [the bodyguard]…but I would’ve thought Heidi would [have] shown a bit more class…before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were,” Seal told TMZ, referring to the alleged romance between his soon-to-be ex-wife and her bodyguard, Martin Kristen.
According to TMZ, the singer also accused the “Project Runway” host of cheating on him with Kristen while they were still together.
Klum, while keeping mum about the alleged romance with her bodyguard of four years, has been quick to deny the accusations of infidelity.
“It is sad that Seal has to resort to false accusations,” a rep for Klum told Access Hollywood on Saturday.
Klum and Kristen caused a stir this week after photos of them “getting close” during a family vacation in Italy surfaced, sparking rumors that the two are dating.
However, a friend close to Klum told PEOPLE that Klum’s relationship with her bodyguard is “complicated” and “hard to define.”
According to an earlier report by the Huffington Post, Seal and Klum’s divorce has started to get “messy.” Other than fighting over money, the pair have reportedly been tussling over the custody of their four young children — Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
The couple were married for seven years before they announced their separation in January. The supermodel officially filed for divorce in April, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
