Friday gossip roundup: Heidi Klum calls divorce from Seal a ‘curveball’ in Elle interview

Klum and Seal in happier times.

Heidi Klum has been tight-lipped about her impending split from singer husband Seal — until now.

In the April issue of Elle, Klum opens up about what it’s like to be at the center of such a publicized divorce. The supermodel describes the tumultuous decision to split that the couple of seven years recently made.   

“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado,” Klum says of her divorce in the Elle interview, according to the New York Post. ”

She adds, “And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life. Sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you can catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.”

While Klum initially kept mum about the split, Seal gave two interviews the day the couple announced their divorce. Klum explains why she has kept private until now, despite her soon-to-be ex husband’s decision to go public.

“He’s a grown man. I can’t tell him what to do and what not to do. It’s hard,” she says. “I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them. I don’t want to talk about them, or him, or me.”

While Klum finally agreed to an interview, it’s hardly a tell-all. She declines to give out any details about what happened leading up to the divorce that seemed to come out of nowhere, shocking the public.

“People don’t need to know who did what. I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had,” Klum says.

“Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary—especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
