"When we were together, I never looked at another man," Klum told The New York Post. Her former husband, Seal, had previously accused Klum of infidelity and issued a nasty statement to the press after Klum was spotted on vacation with bodyguard Martin Kristen.
"I preferred Heidi would have showed a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first, before deciding to fornicate with the help," he told TMZ. Once photos of Klum and Kristen were released, Seal added, "I guess you now all have the answer that you've been looking for the past seven months."
While many were shocked at Seal's language and strong accusation, Klum insisted she wasn't caught off-guard by them.
"It was a unique choice of words … I'm used to it. Other people aren't. When we were together, I never looked at another man," she said.
Klum will appear on Katie Couric's new talk show on Wednesday, Sept. 12, to continue discussing her relationship with Seal as well as her work. Fans were shocked to learn of the couple's separation after seven years of marriage. Klum and Seal made it an annual event to renew their wedding vows in unique ways.
They currently share custody of their children, Leni (who is not biologically Seal's), Henry, Johan, and Lou. In a statement to People magazine, Klum explained that the separation "was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I. I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years."
"My priority has, and continues to be, protecting and providing for our children," Klum added.
