Heidi Klum is still dating Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel, but in a turn of events that can best be described as Sliding Doorsian, she recently revealed that if the timing was different, she might be dating another younger man from the music industry. Drake texted Heidi Klum once and he may have wondered if he sent it to the right number. Oh, Heidi got that text; she just ignored it.
All those housewives traipsing around Andy Cohen’s office must stink to the fashion crowd because just as he was touting how great it was that Project Runway was heading back to Bravo, its two leading stars are saying, “See ya later, bitch!” and taking their talent elsewhere. Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are ditching the show to produce what sounds like the same thing with a different title on Amazon. So basically the original Project Runway is going to look like an off-brand Project Runway to whatever it is Heidi and Tim do.
Of course she doesn’t; that’s the smile of a woman who doesn’t have to worry about hearing the words, “Not tonight honey, my sciatica’s acting up.”
For about four months now, 45-year-old Heidi Klum has been dating 28-year-old Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel. Heidi is 17 years older than Tom. This isn’t Heidi’s first time at the younger man rodeo; last year Heidi split from Vito Schnabel, who was about 14 years younger than her. So does Heidi have a thing for guys born in the 1980s or what? She recently confessed during an interview with InStyle that the date on their birth certificate doesn’t matter to her.
“My boyfriend is many years younger than me, and lots of people are questioning that and asking about it. That’s really the only time when age seems to be shoved in my face and I have to give an answer for it. I don’t really think about it that much otherwise. You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles.”
Heidi is one of those people who is morphing into an indeterminate age (aka vaguely mid-30s), and thanks to that facial hair, I doubt Tom gets carded that often at the liquor store. So it’s not like they look so different together. And thankfully she’s not insecure about it. If I were Heidi, I know it wouldn’t take long before I held a picture from Halloween 2013 up to my face and asked Tom to play Spot The Difference while warning that he better not say he can’t find any.
When I first read that Heidi Klum was boning some Tokio Hotel guy I assumed he was a real estate dude with hotels in Tokyo and wondered if I’d been spelling Tokyo wrong my whole life. I did not expect that Heidi would be boning some youth from a boy band called Tokio Hotel! Now I know how my aunt felt when I tried to explain to her what Migos was because she decided to watch Saturday Night Live a couple weeks ago. Now that I know what Tokio Hotel is (conceptually at least), I now understand that 44-year-old Heidi is dating 29-year-old Tom Kaulitz.
Everyone at Bravo cried into the lamé scraps of Mood Fabrics back in 2008 when The Weinstein Company decided to uproot Project Runway and send Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn & Co. to Lifetime. It was definitely a blow to the network built upon a foundation of filming gays making over straights, over-serving middle-aged housewives, and attempts at fashion that would send Michael Kors into fits and shrieks of “It’s too pageant!” Welp, nearly ten years later, TWC is broke after the fall of Harvey Weinstein, and Project Runway is strutting back into the arms of Andy Cohen.

Prepare yourself for a pairing so random and late-2000s, it could only be outdone by a headline that reads: Jennifer Aniston finds new love with a box of L’Oréal Feria haircolor in R57. Six months after calling it quits with Vito Schnabel, 44-year-old Heidi Klum got caught kissing 28-year-old Tom Kaulitz, twin brother of human Pokemon Bill Kaulitz, both of the band Tokio Hotel.
Heidi and Tom decided to let everyone know they’re a thing by laying it on thick in front of photographers at an America’s Got Talent event last Sunday.
Heidi Klum the cougar strikes again! https://t.co/fk05m83COv

This isn’t technically the first time Heidi and Tom have been spotted out together. On March 14th, they were seen leaving a club in West Hollywood in the same car together. The Daily Mail has pictures of Heidi and Tom kissing, holding hands, and hugging. At one point, Heidi crouches down and grabs onto Tom’s leg. They almost covered all their bases, but my favorite pose – kissing with one leg bent back (aka The G-Rated Romance Novel Cover) – was missing. Oh well, next time.
All jokes about Heidi being a cougar aside, I’m sure she and Tom have a lot to talk about. For example, they’re both from Germany and they could always bond over Victoria’s Secret.
Heidi: “1997 was the first year I walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.”
Tom: “Cool, that’s the same year me and my other 3rd grade friends found an old VS catalogue in the woods!“
