What We Know About Heidi Klum's New Rocker Boyfriend
Get it, girl! On Sunday, Heidi Klum got caught canoodling with 28-year-old Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz in Los Angeles, suggesting she has said auf wiedersehen to singledom.
Klum is one of those people you can't help but be happy for — and alternately, who you can't help but be heartbroken for too. The jury's still out, but we may have had a more difficult time processing Klum's divorce from Seal than she did. When she started dating again, it looked as though she had found lasting love once again with art dealer Vito Schnabel. Then suddenly, the pair also called it quits after three years of dating.
But never one to dwell on the negative, Klum told Ellen DeGeneres in February that she was "very single and ready to mingle." Clearly, she wasn't kidding around! Since her promising chat with DeGeneres, 44-year-old Klum has been spotted twice with her younger musician love interest.
Who is Kaulitz, though? Here's what we know so far about the guitarist.
1. He has an equally dreamy twin bro
Talent (and good looks) must run in the family, because Kaulitz's twin brother, Bill, is the lead singer of their band. Clocking in 10 minutes after Tom's birth, Bill earned the title of youngest twin of the two. And while it's unclear if Tom is viewed the same, his younger bro was voted "most annoying German in 2006" by the viewer's of a German TV network.
2. He is German too
In case the last name didn't give it away, Tom Kaulitz hails from Germany like Klum. But while she was born and raised in Bergisch Gladbach outside Cologne, Kaulitz — according to IMDb — was born in Leipzig and raised in a village near Magdeburg, Loitsche.
3. He lives in LA
Kaulitz and his twin brother used to reside in Hamburg, Germany, but the pair moved to sunny Los Angeles in October 2010 — reportedly in response to a scary stalking incident. This likely strikes Klum as pretty convenient (the new locale, not the stalking) since it means Kaulitz can swing by the America's Got Talent set on the regular.
4. Klum isn't the first model he's fallen for
From 2011 to 2016, Kaulitz was coupled up with another German model: Ria Sommerfeld. The pair was married for just over a year when Kaulitz filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences in September of 2016. Little information exists about the reason behind the split aside from Kaulitz reportedly not wanting to provide any spousal support to his ex.
5. He's a dog person
We're throwing this in here because, hey, who doesn't dig a dude who loves dogs? These precious pooches live with Kaulitz and his twin bro, and it looks like they enjoy a pretty cozy life. That bodes well for Klum if you ask us.
