First, it was Seal who did the talking. Now, supermodel-turned-reality TV star Heidi Klum is breaking her silence on the couple’s shocking divorce.

In the April 2012 issue of ELLE (via US Weekly), Heidi talks candidly about the end of her marriage, admitting

I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.

Still, despite the drama of her divorce, Heidi says she ultimately wants to move forward.

“To the outside world, you don’t really share all the things that happen. You kind of share just the most amazing sides,” she said. “But I don’t really want to get into any of that stuff. With my life, my family, my business — I want to go forward.”

“People don’t need to know who did what,” she said. “I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there.”

Heidi and Seal confirmed they were divorcing in January. They were married for seven years. Until now, Heidi’s only comment came in a tweet, in which she said, “Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words.Really means so much. Thanks again…to the best fans in the world! xoHeidi.”
