Seal clarifies: I wasn't saying Heidi cheated on me

Seal wasn't entirely clear on what he meant when he told TMZ that he wished his ex Heidi Klum wouldn't "fornicate with the help," and now the singer has some explaining to do.

TMZ photographers caught up with Seal on Friday and asked him how he felt about the rumors that Klum's now dating her bodyguard following her January split from Seal.

Removing his sunglasses, Seal replied that while it's commonplace for a separated couple to move on  - and while he certainly doesn't "expect Heidi to all of a sudden become a nun" - he did think that she "would've shown a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were."

He then added, "but I guess you all now have the answer you were looking for for the past seven months."

Hmm ... so did Seal's split from Klum have something to do with her "fornicating with the help"? It sounds like that's what he meant, but apparently the singer was a bit tongue-tied. A rep for the singer tells CNN 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," his rep said in a statement.

An "insider" added to Us Weekly that Seal was "exhausted" and "bombarded" by the photographers, hence his desire to explain. "He doesn't like now being made into the bad guy here," the unnamed connection continued. "He always loved and cared for Heidi."

For her part, Klum's also denied allegations that she stepped out during her seven-year marriage to the "Kiss From a Rose" singer.

"It is sad that Seal had to resort to this kind of behavior and spread these untruths about the mother of his children," Klum's rep told Us Weekly.

Klum, who separated from Seal in January, filed for divorce in April.

    “When I first opted for this spell, I did not expect much from it. I had experienced failure before. But since I was been on getting him back at any cost, I decided to give it a shot. To my surprise spell from brought me much more than what i expected. Spell from is a best option for anyone who wants to get their love back and resume a healthy and loving relationship.

    Let truth be said regardless of what the outcome will be. If you are seperated, and not yet divorced, you are on the wrong side if you sleep with another woman or with another man. simple. If Klum is dating her former bodyguard after they seperated, and they sleep together, that is fornication or adultery, again Rome was not built in a day in relation to her new relation with former bodyguard. Light and darkness cannot coexist. We are so afraid to say the truth and that is why the world is not at peace. Read the bible clearly.

    Although I adore Heidi Klum and have tremendous respect for Seal, I wish that she could swallow a little of her pride and learn how to work out her differences with Seal. For all parties concerned, including hers, this would be the best solution.
    She is a very creative person, she has the ability to do it.

      Seal has a right to speak up. She is raising and influencing his children. It does seem a little quick to have another man around the children... Seems a bit ill thought out. If Heidi can really move on that quickly i don't think that marriage meant much to her. Poor kids. She just keeps having kids by different men. What a mess.

    This is such sad news, to see how Seal and Heidi are handling their business. They were always a very classy couple with a lovely family. I was hoping they would work things out, and stay together. I don't know if they went for marriage counseling, before deciding on a divorce. Marriage is not easy, however, love bears all things. The Bible says it best at, 1Corinthians 13: 4-8. I don't think either of them were unfaithful during the time they were living together, but once a couple decides to separate, it can be lonley and very hard emotionally. Heidi's bodygaurd is probably one of the few people who is closest to her, giving her moral support. I'm almost sure, that Seal and Heidi still love one another, which explains why Seal reacted a bit jealous when he heard about her spending time with her bodyguard. I just hope the best for their children.

    • The source

      didn't the bible also say that Abraham, not being able to conceive with his first wife Sarah, go unto her handmaiden. Resulting in Hagar having a son.
      Maybe that happened with Seal. Could it be that GOD told her to boink the bodyguard?
      Just askin....

  36. Hypocrites!

    She's fornicating with the help, and while emotionally separated, they are not legally separated nor divorced.

    Implication problems are with people who chose to imply, not with Seal.

    Is there a problem with having a new public relationship while your marriage separation and divorce is not yet finalized? Seal thinks yes, Heidi thinks no, and y'all can decide whatever way you want.

    But Seal doesn't deserve flack for his comments, which any implication on Heidi's current actions also being why they broke up was drawn on their own. His statement may have been unclear, but assuming makes a lot of people some act like donkey butts.

    Seal seems a decent fellow. In fact, i think HE made Heidi look like a class act when they were together. She is the one who had been married before AND had a child out of wedlock. If Heidi weren't the poster girl for bikini-clad blondes, people would see this for what it is. She is a bit loose... I agree with Seal on this one. The ink isn't even dry on the divorce papers and she is cavorting about in front of her kids with a new guy already. Seems a bit low class to me.

    I suspect that Seal doesn't know what the big word, fornicate, means. He most likely thought it meant: to fornicate = to travel in a foreign country!

      I suspect Seal knows EXACTLY what he is talking about and it is Heidi who can't spell or understand fornicate. Perhaps you don't understand it's meaning. They are NOT divorced yet. Worst part is she is doing this in front of her/Seal's kids.
