Heidi Klum is back on the market.
The model/TV personality's relationship with her bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, ended a few weeks ago, according to People magazine. (Any bets on whether Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" was played at any point during their split?)
The couple began dating roughly a year and a half ago. Klum confirmed their romance in September 2012, telling Katie Couric on her talk show "Katie" that she'd known Kirsten for years.
"I trust him, I trust him with my children's (lives)," she said at the time. "He's a great man, and we just got to know each other from a completely different side."
Their acquaintance apparently deepened after Klum's split from her former husband Seal. Klum and the R&B singer, who have four children together, announced they were breaking up in January 2012, and Klum filed for divorce that April.
As for what caused the breakup between Klum and Kirsten, People has heard that the couple has simply chosen to part ways, personally and professionally.
"They are no longer working together," a source close to the situation spilled to the magazine. "Life is about timing. He was incredibly supportive and they were there for each other, but they're moving on now. They still have a great friendship."
