The world of fashion is an illusion, a fairy tale, and it should not have anything at home with reality. A similar idea was expressed in an old interview with the late Karl Lagerfeld. The legendary designer added that Heidi Klum is not the embodiment of the supermodel – he said, her chest is too large and her hips are rather heavy. It is not known what Heidi herself replied to these so offensive words, but the hateful comments of her fans still can be found on the Internet. German model’s fans tried to defend her and insisted that the blonde beauty is an ideal woman for many men over the globe. By the way, Heidi is not just beautiful, but also hard-working. She is involved in many projects, including acting in films and hosting TV shows, and she is also a successful entrepreneur. But how did that all start?
Heidi Klum husband
Ric Pipino (ex-husband; were married in 1997-2002)
Heidi moved to the USA after she had made a rapid start in her fashion career. In the country of new opportunities, she met the man, who played an important part in her life – personal and professional. His name was Ric Pipino, and he was a hairstylist. He was born in Sydney, Australia, and moved to the USA in 1981. He styled the hair of the richest women in New York. Ric taught inexperienced Heidi to pose in front of the camera and helped her to care about her great hairdo. In 1997 they got married. Ric was much older than his fragile wife. Unfortunately, their marriage ended in 2002. That very year Ric opened his first “Pipino Salon” in Miami. Many celebrities do their hair at that salon.
Ric remains one of the most popular hairstylists in the world. He is in relations with an editor Janet Mercel.
Seal (ex-husband; were married in 2005-2012)
Date of birth: February 19, 1963
Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, widely known under his stage moniker “Seal”, was born in London. His parents were very young at the moment of Henry’s birth, so they decided to put him up for adoption. He spent some time in the adoptive family, and then returned to his biological parents. Mostly, he was brought up by a father Francis Samuel, but they were not close.
He started his music career by singing with the band “Push”. Seal gained wide popularity as a solo singer after the release of his eponymous album through ZTT Records in 1991. Four years later he won his first Grammy for the fragile beautiful single “Kiss from a Rose”.
Seal and Heidi started dating in 2004. The model had just separated from her boyfriend Flavio Briatore, the Italian billionaire. She was pregnant with him but decided to end their relationship because she saw the photo of Flavio kissing the rich heiress Fiona Swarovski. Seal fell in love with Heidi and proposed to her, even though she was pregnant with another man.
They wedded in late spring, 2005. Later Heidi gave birth to her first daughter Helene, Briatore’s biological child, adopted by Seal. Besides, the couple parented three common kids, as well. They filed for divorce in 2012. The reason was Seal’s too hot temper, which sometimes was hard to handle for Heidi and the kids.
Tom Kaulitz (husband)
Date of birth: September 1, 1989
Heidi didn’t lose her sexuality in her 40+, and after the divorce from her long-term partner Seal, she immediately started dating the much younger man Vito Schnabel, the businessman from New York.

She met Tom Kaulitz, the famous musician, who played in the Tokio Hotel band for years, at the set of “Germany’s Next Topmodel”. The next day the guitarist came to the set again with the only aim – to meet Heidi. Their passion was like a whirlwind, and since then the couple never parted. They exchanged the wedding vows in February 2019.

They say the daughter and father became a little on edge with each other after Heidi’s marriage to Tom Kaulitz. Rumor has it, Mr. Klum and Tokio Hotel members do not get along.
