When Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation, it seemed somewhat sudden. The pair always presented the wackiest Halloween costumes year after year, and appeared to have a pretty solid bond. But in 2012, they split after seven years of marriage.
E! News wrote that they had “grown apart,” but based on Heidi’s latest relationship, it seems like it was flawed from the start. She married Tom Kaulitz just a year and a day after they met, and she seems happier than ever.
“For the first time, I have a partner who I can discuss everything with,” the model told People. “Someone who shares duties that we all have in our life. I used to be on my own with everything. For the first time, I get to experience what it is actually like to have a partner.”
This is Heidi’s third marriage, which means that she experienced inequality over the labors of a relationship at least twice before. Once with Seal, and once with her first husband, hairstylist Ric Pipino.
