Seal Adopted Leni Klum After Heidi Separated With Leni’s Biological Father
It was 2003 when Heidi Klum started her relationship with Leni’s biological father, Flavio Briatore, an Italian businessman. The former couple made their relationship public in March 2003 but could not stay in term and parted their ways in December 2003, reports hollywoodlife.com.
Around the time of their split, Heidi was already pregnant with Leni. While Flavio was not around the time of Leni’s birth, Seal stepped up as the stepfather. Heidi’s now-ex-husband Seal legally adopted her in December 2009.
Flavio also approved Seal to adopt Leni. According to dailymail.co.uk, in his interview with Italy’s Il Corriere della Sera, he said:
“Leni is my natural daughter, but the three of us happily agreed that it made more sense if Seal adopted her, because a child needs to grow up in a family.”
He even allowed to change Leni’s name to Helene Samuel. But it doesn’t mean that the 70-years-old Italian businessman is estranged from his daughter.
Flavio had a reunion with Leni at the Cala di Volpe hotel in Porto Cervo in July 2018, as reported by TMZ. The outlet further confirmed Heidi and her three other kids were there, and the family was ‘happy and having fun.’
