Seal and Heidi Klum will have to go through the court box to settle their latest dispute. Divorced since 2014, the couple are torn apart today over their children: Henry (14), Johan (13) and Lou (10). As reported by the American site People, the model, who is due to travel to Germany to shoot the new season of the show Germany’s Next Top Model, wants to take her children with her. However, her ex-husband is against it.
Although filming for the show is not scheduled to take place before October 2020, Heidi Klum has taken the lead in requesting an urgent hearing from a judge in Los Angeles, in order to be allowed to travel to Germany with her children. For his part, Seal refuses to allow his offspring to leave American soil due to the coronavirus pandemic. A rather surprising choice since the health situation is much better in Germany than in the United States at present.
Heidi Klum: “I am well aware of all the necessary precautions to take”
In her request to the court, Heidi Klum indicates that her ex-husband has “not yet approved this trip” while they have shared custody of the children, and that the children spend most of their time with their mother . “I am well aware of all the necessary precautions to be taken in connection with the Covid-19 virus and I would never make my children take risks, in Germany I take the same precautions as in the United States” -she adds. For the record, the production of Germany’s Next Top Model generally agrees to relocate the filming of the program to California to be accommodating with Heidi Klum.
However, due to travel constraints to American soil, members of the show cannot travel to the US at this time, forcing the model to make the trip to her native Germany herself. In order to convince Seal, Heidi Klum offered him an agreement which provides that if he gives his authorization for this trip, he will exceptionally be able to see their children for three weeks during the next Christmas vacation. It remains to be seen whether this will be enough for the singer to agree to let his children go with their mother.
