They were once one of pop music's most beautiful couples, with public declarations of love and renewed wedding vows. But model Heidi Klum and singer Seal, real name Seal Henry Samuel, are clearly still on good terms - despite divorcing after seven years of marriage.
The pair were seen meeting up at the Heritage Auction house in Beverly Hills, California, on Tuesday were they spent time with Klum’s daughter, Leni, from her previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. Embracing in a brief goodbye, the couple - who have four children together - seem to enjoy a cordial meeting, giving hugs and kisses as they went their separate ways.
But onlookers could be forgiven for being surprised by such a friendly exchange. The meeting comes just two days after photos emerged of Heidi and her rumoured new man Vito Schnabel enjoying a steamy kiss at an Oscars party on Sunday. Standing on a packed dancefloor of 10AK nightclub, the snaps show the supermodel, 40, leaning into the 27-year-old with her hands placed on either side of his face.
With flowers in her hair, the Project Runway star keeps her arms wrapped tightly around the art dealer as they look intently at each other. At one point, they appear distracted however remain standing closely together while Heidi places her arm affectionately around his neck while her companion's hand remains on her lower back.
Doing their utmost to go unnoticed, Heidi headed to her waiting car before Vito made his way to the other side of the vehicle as they headed home. Vito - who seems to have thing for cougars as he has previously been romantically linked to Demi Moore, 51, and Elle Macpherson, 49 - had also dressed up for the occasion, wearing what appeared to be a black suit and tie.
The couple first set tongues wagging when they were reportedly seen leaving Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows together earlier this month. While the pair weren't snapped together, an onlooker said they were 'making out' inside the David Arquette-owned nightclub.
Demi and Vito were an item for several weeks in 2012, before he allegedly dumped her when they met up at the Art Basel event in Miami. Elle was with the young New Yorker just before that.
Meanwhile, Heidi has only recently become single again, having split from Martin Kristen in January after more than a year of dating. A friend of Heidi's told People magazine: 'Martin was there for her during a challenging time in her life and it was something she will always be grateful for."
