Two months after separating from her husband of six years, Heidi Klum has broken her silence and spoken publicly for the first time to Elle magazine.
"I feel like I'm in the eye of the tornado," the supermodel and Project Runway host told Elle. As for what caused her to split with "Kiss From a Rose" singer Seal, Klum is evasive, saying, "“I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had."
That's less true for Seal, who has spoken several times about their breakup. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he said the separation came as a shock, but that they had grown apart as many married couples do.
As for Heidi’s four kids, she says she’s staying strong.
“I’m a lioness,” she says. “I want to take care of my kids and protect them.”
