Heidi Klum: I Trust The Bodyguard With My Children’s Life

Heidi Klum has confirmed she is involved with her bodyguard Martin Kirsten. Appearing on Wednesday’s Katie – the Project Runway star talked about their relationship.

She said, “I don’t even know if I can even call it that. I don’t know, it just started. So I don’t know. I don’t know where it’s going to go.”

Klum added, “I’ve known him for four years and he’s been with our family for the last four years. He’s cared for, our entire family mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously. I trust him. … I mean, I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man, you know and we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”

After Seal claimed she was “fornicating with the help” to paparazzi recently – things aren’t going too smoothly for the former couple.

“I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now … especially the things that he said … you know I just saw him … we were talking and we’re in an OK place. … It’s a work in progress. You have to take it one day at a time. It’s hard especially when you are in the public eye too. You know you’re always you’re always going to have people looking at you closely at everything you do. And they also don’t always see exactly how it really is.”

As for the cheating accusations she says it’s “not true.”

She said, “I don’t love that. … obviously it’s not true. When you know I’ve never looked at another man while I was with him and it’s hard when you think that he thinks that. Or that … he’s hurt. He’s moved on, you know, and we separated and he’s moved on and so have I.

“And it’s very hard when, when you then start seeing somebody again, for the first time it’s hard then when all of a sudden everyone is watching you. It’s almost like you can’t even have a real, proper chance in a way.”

  1. It is baffling to me how quickly some people “move on”. I was divorced a year and a half ago and didn’t even have children with my ex and I am still healing. Divorce is tough especially when there are children involved. They have only been separated for 8-9 months? And already she has become involved with someone else. And this wasn’t her first marriage. Good for her if she is moving on from a healthy place…

    • I think some people need time to heal.Just because you have lived through a divorce and took months to heal, not everyone does. I cannot stand all of the judgements about how long people should mourn, how long they should wait to date, etc…

  2. See and it baffles me how people hold onto their pain and loss. Hold onto the love that has dissolved, at least for one of the people, after a divorce. You get nowhere by standing still. I liken it to cancer. That marriage/partnership/relationship became toxic and needed to be let go of. Mourn and then. Let go.

    • Yeah but I understand what Anon says. You usually need a lot of time to heal.
      Sometimes you don’t separate because your partner was mean or because someone did something awful to the other.
      Sometimes it just fades away, and when you realize it it just hurts.
      You have just wonderful memories with that person but you know that you can’t be together anymore.
      This really needs a lot of time to heal.
      There are a lot of celebrities that very soon find a rebound.. I don’t really like it, it’s like saying that people are all the same and completely substitutable..

  3. This woman is a idiot. She said she never cheated on seal and didn’t look at another man, / having feelings. Like anyone is going to believe that. First of all, they just got divorce and already hooking up / dating the same fool who was um protecting them ( rolling eyes ), and then she says : I trust him with my children’s life. , she also said ” He’s cared for, our entire family mostly for our four children “.

    Obviously to hook up with that man that quickly, she and him had to be sneaking around or something, or she had feelings for him. Maybe seal was doing something wrong , but at least she can be honest about it. I always respected Heidi, now i don’t.

    • I don’t think she necessarily cheated, I think she was just missing “being with someone” (let’s put it this way). So she soon found a rebound. This may show a certain superficiality in human relationships, but it doesn’t forcedly mean she cheated.
      Btw, I think Seal’s been having “fun” too. He’s just jealous because Heidi found someone stable and not just hookers before he did, but I don’t think he’s been without company.

      • Not a hooker fan, but at least they’re a passing fancy, where as the CHILDREN’S body guard is NOT a passing fancy, he has been with them for a few years (I believe), and it should be really confusing to the kids as to why he’s now sleeping on Daddy’s side of the bed. And are they going to have to hire a new body guard, now that the old one has been promoted? And when (not if) they break up, what is she going to tell the kids? I’m sure that they love him, and will miss him terribly, especially now that their Daddy is no longe around most of the time anymore. They’ve got lots on their young plates….. thanks to their parents, and their personal desires.

        I’ve always liked Heidi, and I love Project Runway (even though the last 3 or 4 seasons have been crap, and have had NO overwhelming talent), and wish she, Seal, and the kids well,…… but really Heidi, …….the kid’s body guard?! You couldn’t bag the bag boy at Whole Foods?!

        • Yeah, I understand, if you want to know how I think it happened, I see it this way: Heidi was starting to feel lonely in her bed, who was colder and colder, one night the bodyguard happened to step by and…Ta daaan!
          Maybe the kids don’t know though.
          But n general I agree, with all those children she shouldn’t be so promiscuous. I’m not saying that she shouldn’t date anybody else ever again, but she should just go far more slowly and carefully..

        • I’m thinking of Michelle Williams, for example.. Completely another story: she wasn’t even with Heath Ledger anymore when he died, but still she’s been there just for her daughter for years. It took her 4 years to be seen with someone new, and she chose a guy who already seems to be like a daddy to Matilda.

          But obviously everybody has their own sensibility and taste. And everybody can do whatever they want.

          • Michelle Williams started dating Spike jones six months after Heath died.

            Heidi and seal have been separated 9 months. The woman is allowed to date at this point. Many of the comments on here seem to think Heidi should be wearing black and mourning for years. Let her live life.

      • I don’t think he jealous because Heidi found someone stable, it more like she sleeping woth the bodyguard and the question is we’re they doing it while she was still married to Seal married.

        When Seal was out of town Heidi was with the bodyguard and if he always had a problem with her being close with the bodyguard then yes he would be upset to know that they are know dating. Wouldn’t you be he trust this guy with his family, that would be like if Seal was dating the nanny.

    • Shawn you really do put forth a lot of negative energy into Heidi’s life – live your own!! You act like you know these celebrities, as if you have some knowledge about their actions and about what’s in their hearts and minds. Live your OWN life.

  4. I really like her. She is very honest and down-to-earth. People shouldn’t be so quick to judge her or her dating situation. Regardless of her being a celebrity, she does have a right to privacy. No one knows the real situation of her divorce or her new relationship. Her choices are hers to make, without the pointless opinions of everyone else. Live your own lives and focus on yourselves and what works for you day to day, while letting her do the same… I like Heidi and Seal both – they have good hearts!
