Seal slams Klum for fornicating 'with the help'
It started off civilised enough, but quickly took a turn as Seal's real feelings emerged.
Heidi Klum was photographed getting close to Martin Kristen, her security guard for the last four years, during a family vacation in Italy last month. On Friday, the singer was asked how he felt about his estranged wife's alleged relationship.
"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. But as always my main priority is the emotional wellbeing of our children," Seal told TMZ.com in an impromptu interview.
"To be quite honest, if there is going to be somebody else in their lives, I'd much rather it was a familiar face. I guess the only thing I would have preferred is that ... 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.
"But, I guess you now have the answer you've been looking for, for the past seven months."
A representative for Klum quickly hit back at the accusations of infidelity. On Saturday, a statement was released on her behalf: "It is sad that Seal has to resort to this kind of behaviour and spread these untruths about the mother of his children."
The following day, Seal's rep told US Weekly that his words were misconstrued. "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."
Klum separated from Seal in January this year after almost seven years of marriage, and filed for divorce in April. Seal lodged his own paperwork shortly after.

Despite saying they would never speak badly of each other, "We're just not those kind of people - we never really have been," their divorce has started to get "messy."
According to the Huffington Post, as well as 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.
