Project Runway mogul Heidi Klum admits she is in a relationship with her family’s bodyguard, Martin Kristen. But she wasn’t involved with him when she was married. On Katie on Wednesday, Klum said, “I don’t even know if I can even call it that. I don’t know, it just started. So I don’t know. I don’t know where it’s going to go.” Klum added, “I’ve known him for four years and he’s been with our family for the last four years. He’s cared for, our entire family mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously. I trust himâ?¦I mean, 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.” As for how things are going with Seal? This is one split that doesn’t sound so amicable. “I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now … especially the things that he said … you know I just saw him … we were talking and we’re in an OK place. … It’s a work in progress. You have to take it one day at a time. It’s hard especially when you are in the public eye too. You know you’re always you’re always going to have people looking at you closely at everything you do. And they also don’t always see exactly how it really is.” She wasn’t pleased with Seal’s cheating accusations, either. “I don’t love that. … obviously it’s not true. When you know I’ve never looked at another man while I was with him and it’s hard when you think that he thinks that. Or that … he’s hurt. He’s moved on, you know, and we separated and he’s moved on and so have I. And it’s very hard when, when you then start seeing somebody again, for the first time it’s hard then when all of a sudden everyone is watching you. It’s almost like you can’t even have a real, proper chance in a way.” We’ll see what happens, but Klum seems very happy!
A high-profile manager, producer, multi-instrumentalist, screenwriter, and director, Chris Stokes guided Immature/IMx and B2K, two of the most successful R&B groups of the ’90s and early 2000s (respectively). He also produced material by Bell Biv DeVoe, Shanice, and Debelah Morgan, and was part of the group Wataz (which released a 1998 album, Natural High), but he helped build something of an empire with the members of the groups he managed, parlaying their successes into screenwriting and directing. House Party 4, You Got Served, and Somebody Help Me each featured the likes of Omarion, Marques Houston, and other members of Stokes’ groups. In 2012, Stokes and Houston paired together again for the Stokes-directed dramatic film Battlefield America about underground dance competitions.
