Seal blasted his estranged wife Heidi Klum for "fornicating with the help".
It has recently been reported that Klum – who pulled the plug on her six-year marriage to Seal in April this year – is dating her bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, a move which her ex has slammed as without "class".
Klum and Kirsten were spotted looking comfortable together while holidaying with her children, and in a video with TMZ, Seal was quoted as saying: "That's what happens when two people separate. They move on and that generally means other people in their lives. I certainly don't expect Heidi to become a nun. My main priority is the emotional well-being of our children and to be quite honest if there is going to be someone in their lives, I'd rather it be a familiar face."
"I didn't expect any better from him…but I would've thought Heidi would have shown a bit more class... before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were," Seal added to TMZ.
His comments – which Klum's representative called "sad" – seemed to suggest that Klum had been unfaithful to the singer while they were still trying to make their marriage work.
"It is sad that Seal has to resort to this kind of behavior and spread these untruths about the mother of his children," Klum's spokesperson told Us Magazine.
However, Seal has now changed his tune and his representative told the tabloid that the singer was "not implying" that Klum had cheated on him.
"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 were not final and they are still legally married," his rep told the magazine.
A source echoes the statement, maintain that Seal was tired and didn't mean what he said to TMZ.
"These guys bombarded him and were in his face," the source told Us Magazine. "He was exhausted, which is why he wants to clarify what he said. . . He doesn't like now being made into the bad guy here - he always loved and cared for Heidi."
