“It is very hard and especially, you know, being in all of the magazine and gossip pages,” she said. “I mean, that is definitely very hard and hurtful and it’s hard to go through a divorce.”

“I’m someone who believes in a fairy tale and when I said ‘I do,’ I meant forever,” she added. “But I don’t know, you never know what happens. Life changes.”

Speaking on the new talk show about her divorce from the singer, Klum seemed to be a little nervous when asked point-blank if she is currently in a relationship.

“I don’t even know if I can call it that, you know? It just started so I don’t know. I don’t know where it’s gonna go,” the supermodel replied.

“I’ve known him for four years and he’s been with our family for the last four years,” Klum continued.

“He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously… I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man, you know, and we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”

Last month saw the reports suggesting that the 39-year-old TV star is dating her bodyguard after she was spotted getting close to Kristen while on vacation with her family in Sardinia.

Klum’s famous ex-husband fueled rumors by telling reporters that he wished his ex had waited until they were separated before she decided to “fornicate with the help.”

Later rep for Seal explained the singer did not intend to imply that Klum had cheated on him; instead, he wanted to say that their divorce is not yet finalized so the two are still legally married.

However, the supermodel was quite upset with her ex’s words. She denied that she cheated on him during their marriage and said to Couric that Seal used a “unique choice of words.”

“He has a very unique choice of words, I ‘m used to them,” Klum said. “I don’t know, I don’t love that, it’s obviously not true, I never looked at another man while I was with him.”

The former Victoria’s Secret angel went on, adding that she once thought her marriage would last forever.

“I’m someone who believes in a fairy tale and when I said I do, I meant forever,” she said. “But I don’t know… You never know what happens. Life changes. It’s that road with all those bumps and holes and you’re trying to struggle through them. And I don’t know…we just couldn’t make it work, you know?”

Speaking of her current relations with her now former husband, Heidi claimed it wasn’t the happiest of times for them, writes The New York Daily News.

“I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now, especially because of the things that he said,” she admitted. “I just saw him on, on Sunday. We were talking and we’re in an okay place.”

As Entertainment Wise reports, referring to her romance with the bodyguard, she said: “It’s very hard when you start seeing somebody again, you know. All of a sudden. It’s hard then when everyone is watching you. It’s almost like you can’t have a real proper chance in a way.”
