Another day, another weird celebrity rumor. Apparently, lots of people somehow think Heidi Klum and Donald Trump were once married. Yes, seriously. The gossip is truly strange and, frankly, we’re not even totally sure where it came from. But, let’s take a step back and investigate, shall we?
First, it seems Heidi, 44, and the POTUS, 71, have been close friends for years. We can infer the two probably hung out in the same celebrity circles in Hollywood. Plus, Heidi and Donald’s wife, Melania Trump, 47, both worked as international supermodels (it’s casual), so we’re sure the America’s Got Talent judge and the First Lady are old pals too. Interestingly, both Donald and Heidi also have sons who are the same age — Donald and Melania’s only child, Barron, is 11 years old and Heidi and her ex-husband Seal’s eldest son, Henry, is also 11. Maybe they’ve had play dates!

Just to reiterate, Donald and Heidi have definitely never been married. Heidi was first hitched to actor Ric Pipino from 1997 until 2002. She then dated Italian businessman Flavio Briatore and the two welcomed daughter Leni together in May 2004. After the model and Flavio split, Heidi famously began dating singer Seal and the duo had three kids together, sons Henry and Johan and daughter Lou. Seal also adopted Leni during their marriage. The former power couple divorced in 2015 and Heidi is now dating art curator Vito Schnabel.
Donald has tied the knot three times, but never with Heidi. He was married to model Ivana Trump — with whom he has kids Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric — from 1997 until 1992. He was then hitched to actress Marla Maples from 1993 until 1999 and they had daughter Tiffany during their marriage. He exchanged vows with current wife, Melania, in 2005.
While we know Heidi and Donald were seemingly one close pals, we’re frankly not sure the two remain on good terms today. Back in 2015, Donald slammed Heidi during a New York Times interview. “Heidi Klum… sadly, she’s no longer a 10,” he said, bashing the mom-of-four’s looks. Heidi later hit back at Donald during a sit-down on The Ellen Show. “I mean, who even is a 10? No one’s a 10,” she said. Go, girl!
