Heidi Klum is moving on.

Following Seal's statements about her supposed hook-up with her bodyguard Martin Kristen, a rep for the former Victoria's Secret supermodel told E! News, "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."

During a family vacation in Sardinia, Italy recently, the Project Runway host was spotted looking cozy with her bodyguard of four years, a man named Martin Kristen, according to People, leading to speculation that the duo had coupled up.

Klum, 39, looked relaxed and content in a white visor and blue cover-up over her bikini. Her security guard wore camo shorts and a red T-shirt; he appeared to be part of the family as he played in the sand with Klum and Seal's four children.

And the "Let's Stay Together" crooner was not amused by the rumors. 

When asked by TMZ what he thought about Klum's supposed new man, Seal said on video, "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 of shown a bit more class...before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were," Seal added.

Responding to Seal's statement, Klum's rep tells E! News, "It is sad that Seal has to resort to false accusations."

Shortly after his statement, Seal clarified his previous comment on Sunday, with his rep telling E! News his words were not what they seemed.

The singer's rep said that Seal was "pointing out that they are separated and the divorce is not final, so they are legally still married."

Since splitting with Seal in January, Klum has been candid about her feelings on love. "I don't know if I'll get married again," she told German publication Bild am Sonntag. "Although I really enjoyed being married. I'm a dreamer. I loved our annual fairy-tale weddings that were our big family parties. But sadly, it somehow didn't work out."
