Heidi Klum hasn't utter a peep other than a small tweet on January 31 regarding the end of her seven-year marriage to Seal. Heidi Klum And Seal Are NOT Getting Back Together... Ever
It seems she's uncomfortable telling anyone about it, but she's finally opening up a little. In the latest issue of Elle, the 38-year-old shares her emotions about the whole break:
"I feel like I'm in the eye of the tornado. It's emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. 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. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn't expect."
Like any couple, Klum and Seal, 49, had their ups and downs, but they just couldn't weather the "tornado" this time around. Klum admits there were problems in the marriage that they didn't disclose to the outside world. "You don't really share all the things that happen," she said. "You kind of share just the most amazing sides."
The ex-couple is still living in the Brentwood home they share with their four children, and yet the supermodel reveals her biggest goal right now is to move forward. She tells the magazine, "I don't really want to get into any of that stuff. With my life, my family, my business -- I want to go forward." Experts Say Heidi Klum And Seal Need Therapy
She also admits she finds it hard to watch Seal speak about their end ("He's a grown man. I can't tell him what to do and what not to do," she explained). Unlike her ex, she's keeping what matters private. "I don't want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we're in the public, so the highs are out there."
She also describes herself as "a lioness. I have four cubs. I'm a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them," she says. "I don't want to talk about them, or him, or me."
We think that's an amazing way to go about a very public split, and we give Klum a lot of credit. She admits she's "not made out of stone" and she's hurt. We hope she gets to go forward like she wants!
