Seal and Heidi Klum split gets even nastier

Singer implies that Heidi was cheating with her bodyguard!

We all know that saying: If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all. Seal would be well advised to remember that in the future. In a shocking new video, Seal basically implied that Heidi Klum was unfaithful while they were married, and that she was fooling around with her bodyguard. Now, he's doing some serious backpedaling.

Heidi Klum's rep says she never cheated on Seal while they were together, and she certainly never slept with her bodyguard, Martin Kristen. Remember: Heidi is the mother of Seal's four beautiful children. It's hard not to feel really bad for all of them, when their parents are acting like this so publicly.Here's how this all went down in the tabloids: TMZ confronted Seal and asked him what he thought about Heidi and her kids all vacationing together with bodyguard Martin Kristen in Sardinia recently. Seal popped off and totally lost his temper, saying (and this is brutal):

I would have preferred Heidi show a little bit more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were...But I guess you now all have the answer that you've been looking for for the past seven months.

Wow, right? Heidi Klum's spokesperson went into total spin mode quickly, telling Us Weekly that  she was never unfaithful (much less with bodyguard Kristen) and slamming Seal for spreading "these untruths about the mother of his children."

Seal now claims that oops, that's not what he meant at all. His rep issued an official statement to TMZ that I'm still trying to interpret. Here it is:

Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating while they were together, but he was merely pointing out that their separation and divorce are not yet final and they are indeed still legally married.

Good grief. Seriously, see what I mean about interpreting? I've watched the video several times, read the first quote about Heidi and her "class" issues, and I'm absolutely certain that he meant exactly what he said: That he blames Heidi Klum for their split, accusing her of messing around with her bodyguard while they were still married.

Am I totally off base here? Granted, I have a nasty summer cold and perhaps the cold medicines I'm taking have fried my brain a little, but it sure seems like Seal meant every single word he said. This is a classic case of what happens when you don't think before you speak. I realize the paparazzi can drive a person crazy, but just because they shove a camera in your face, that doesn't mean you have to open your mouth and say such nasty things. Ever hear of "no comment," Seal?
