Heidi Klum Claims Ex Seal is Preventing Her From Taking Kids to Germany

Heidi Klum is asking for an emergency court hearing so that she can travel to Germany with her four children to film the next season of Next Top Model.

In her filing for the hearing, the 47-year-old America’s Got Talent judge claims that ex-husband Seal does not want their kids to travel to Europe because he is concerned about keeping them safe amid the coronavirus pandemic, People reports.

Heidi and Seal share four kids: daughters Leni, 16, and Lou, 10, along with sons Henry, 14, and Johan, 13.

Heidi is contractually obligated to film season 16 of Germany’s Next Top Model in October, and she says usually brings her kids with her. However, the 57-year-old musician “has not yet approved of this trip.”

“I am well aware of all of the necessary precautions associated with the COVID-19 virus, and would never put our children at risk — I have taken all the precautions for Germany the same way I do in the United States,” Heidi wrote in her filing.

Heidi, who shares custody with Seal, says the kids spend the majority of the time living with her and that his “time with our children is sporadic at best.”

Heidi added that she is willing to change their previously planned custody arrangement if Seal would allow the children to travel to Germany with her.

“Also, as Henry [Seal] has a British passport, he would be able to visit the children while they are in Germany if he wishes to do so,” Heidi wrote.

Heidi also claims that back in April, Seal had agreed to let the kids travel with her, but has since changed his mind.

“I tried to work this out with Henry directly to no avail,” Heidi wrote, adding that she is “desperate” and that the children have said they do not want to stay in Los Angeles with their dad. “It could not possibly be in their best interests.”

Seal has not yet responded to Heidi‘s filing.

Heidi and Seal married in 2005 and finalized their divorce in October 2014. She married musician Tom Kaulitz in February 2019.
