Things are heating up in this divorce battle!
Since Heidi Klum's romantic relationship with bodyguard Martin Kristen is pretty much a bonafide fact now, Seal plans on using the situation to his advantage — a.k.a. to get more money!
He's reportedly "fuming" over the fact Heidi turned to "the help" before she was officially divorced and will now be trying to gain the upper hand in the custody of their children. A source explained:
"Seal will make Heidi’s life a misery now that she’s confirmed she’s together with Martin. He’s fuming that Heidi admitted she’s been dating Martin for three months. He didn’t expect her to find happiness with someone else before their divorce was officially finalized. It’s a real blow to his ego and he now wants more money from her in the divorce settlement – just because she’s dating somebody before the paperwork is settled. Seal will also demand that he gets more time with the kids."
The Project Runway star isn't too worried though. Or at least, isn't afraid to stand her ground, as the source continued:
"Heidi won’t back down and isn’t prepared to give up her fortune or custody of their children without a fight. If she has to, she will face off against him in court. Heidi thinks he’s being incredibly petty and also doesn't think he legally has a leg to stand on."
So much for keeping things amicable!
Like any couple with children going through a split, we think they should be doing what's best for the kids. Unfortunately, we imagine they both have different ideas of what that is.
