(Newser) – It's hard not to click on a headline with the word "fornicate" in it, and so Seal's comments about Heidi Klum doing just that with her bodyguard managed to make waves over the holiday weekend—and now the British singer is backpedaling. In a statement handed to People, his rep explains that, "Seal would like to clarify that he was not implying his wife was cheating on him while they were together."

So what did he mean? "He was pointing out that they are separated and the divorce is not final so they are legally still married." The rumors about Klum and bodyguard Martin Kirsten started to fly after she was photographed with him (and her kids) on vacation in Sardinia.
