When rumors surfaced that relations between Heidi Klum and her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kirsten, weren't strictly professional, it was unclear what was really going on.
"It's complicated," a friend of Klum's tells PEOPLE, explaining that Kirsten, also 39, is Klum's "no. 1 confidante."
Well, someone cue Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" because it seems like Klum is singing a different tune: On Wednesday's episode of Katie Couric's new daytime talk show, Klum, 39, admits, "[Martin]'s a great man and recently we just got to know each other from a completely different side."

It's Heidi Klum's turn in the recent exchange of words between her and ex husband, Seal.
"I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years," Klum says in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.
"Our separation was based on issues between the two of us," she continues. "Seal has moved on and so have I. My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children."
Klum's statement comes in the wake of a comment by Seal – which he later clarified – concerning his estranged wife's relationship with her bodyguard, with whom she was seen getting cozy in Sardinia.

After remarks Seal made during an airport interview regarding his estranged wife Heidi Klum and her bodyguard Martin Kirsten were picked up far and wide this weekend, a rep for the British singer issued a statement to PEOPLE.
"Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating on him while they were together," said the statement. "But rather he was pointing out that they are separated and the divorce is not final so they are legally still married."
In the course of a Los Angeles International Airport interview, Seal, 49, told TMZ, in reference to recent photos of Klum and Kirsten vacationing in Sardinia: "That's what happens when two people separate, they move on and generally meet other people in their lives."

Recent photos of the vacationing Heidi Klum being cozy in Sardinia with her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kirsten, have obviously been seen far and wide.
Among the observers: her estranged husband Seal, from whom she split in January after the two were married for seven years. She filed for divorce in April.
"That's what happens when two people separate, they move on and generally meet other people in their lives," Seal, 49, told TMZ as he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport.
"I certainly don't expect Heidi to all of a sudden become a nun. But as always my main priority is the emotional well-being of my children, and to be quite honest if there is going to be someone else there in their lives there, I would much rather it was a familiar face," the singer said.

Heidi Klum recently went on Italian getaway to enjoy the sun, the sand – and possibly a new man?
While on a family getaway to Sardinia, the Project Runway host, 39, was spotted getting close to her bodyguard of four years, Martin Kirsten, sparking rumors that the two are dating.
Not exactly, a friend close to Klum tells PEOPLE.
"It's complicated," says the friend. "Their relationship is hard to define."

Another trip down the aisle for Heidi Klum? Maybe not.
In a rare moment of candor, the Project Runway judge told the weekly newspaper Bild am Sonntag" that she's not sure she'll ever marry again – although she did love being married to Seal.
"I don't know if I'll get married again," Klum, whose separation (after seven years of marriage) was announced in January, is quoted as saying.
"Although I really enjoyed being married. I'm a dreamer. I loved our annual fairy tale weddings that were our big family parties. But sadly, it somehow didn't work out."

If Heidi Klum is trying to make Seal jealous in the wake of their split, she's doing a bang-up job.
First, she posed nude in Allure's May issue. Now, the newly single supermodel has debuted a rather risqué music video for Hunger Magazine in which she also leaves little to the imagination.
Klum, 38, gyrates on a pole while wearing a leather harness in the video for "Turn Up The Night." (Klum's foray into music videos is a one-off, reports the U.K.'s Telegraph.)

Just days after Heidi Klum filed for divorce, Seal answered with court papers seeking joint physical custody of their four children.
The singer's filing Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court differs from the model's papers that sought joint legal custody with visitation for Seal of Leni, 7½, Henry, 6½, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
But a source tells PEOPLE this is merely a legal technicality and no custody fight is expected. As with Klum's petition, Seal's papers cite the standard "irreconcilable differences" for the end of the nearly seven-year marriage.

Nearly three months after announcing their separation following almost seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum has made it official and filed for divorce from Seal, PEOPLE has learned.
A petition, which lists irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, was filed Friday afternoon in Los Angeles Superior Court, PEOPLE confirms.
Klum is seeking joint legal custody, but primary physical custody of their four children – Leni, 7½, Henry, 6½, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2 – with visitation rights for Seal. The model is also requesting to have her maiden name restored. She legally changed it to Seal's last name, Samuel, though professionally she continued to use Klum.

The last few months haven't been easy for Heidi Klum, who split from Seal, her husband of seven years, in January. But she's trying her best to keep her head up.
"I feel like I'm in the eye of a tornado," she tells Elle in its April issue. "Sometimes I think a curve ball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you can catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn't expect."
Klum, 38, understands that the couple's separation seemed sudden – but she tells the magazine that things in her marriage with the singer, 49, weren't always what they seemed.
