Well now this is how they should all behave when they divorce -- with bitterness and barbs over a bodyguard, all caught on camera.

Heidi Klum was papped on holiday with her children in Sardinia. In the photos, she and her bodyguard have their arms around each other. There’s nothing dirty but it was suggestive enough to get people wondering whether or not they’re intimate. And indeed, she’s not denied that they’re involved.

After the pictures with the bodyguard were published the other day, TMZ asked Seal, Heidi’s estranged husband, about her new situation. He replied, ON CAMERA, that it’s too bad that his ex couldn’t wait until they were separated before “fornicating with the help”. Click here to see.

Then, realising that he’d just revealed himself to be a dick, he tried to take it back the next day, claiming that he was misunderstood and that Heidi didn’t cheat on him. Sure. Heidi’s trying to take the high road though and in a statement to PEOPLE explained that:

"I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I. My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children."

But that hasn’t stopped her from suggesting to TMZ that Seal’s reaction to whatever she’s up to with her bodyguard illustrates perfectly why their marriage fell apart: because he gets mean when he gets angry and he’s angry and jealous too often.  Heidi messaging is also premised on her position that Seal wants her back and if he can’t have her, he’ll take as much of her money as he can get in court. And, as you can see, he’ll keep embarrassing her in public to get his point across. Women find this kind of intensity attractive all the time and I’ve never understood it. You’ve seen it in real life among civilians -- possessiveness as an acceptable accompaniment to love. I can understand its origin in the man, but what is the root cause for condoning it in women?

Heidi returned to New York from Italy and has since been seen with a new bodyguard. It’s not known right now if he’s been graduated to official boyfriend. Attached -here she is with him in NYC last month.
