What a cool gig!
Usually mom Heidi Klum (47) accompanies daughter and young model Leni (17) to shootings and events. No wonder, after all, the teenager is still a newbie in the spotlight.
At the screening of the film “The Harder They Fall” on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles, Klümchen appeared without a mother, but together with adoptive father Seal (58) and friend Aris Rachevsky (18).
Seal, who adopted Leni in 2009 (Leni’s biological father is the Italian multimillionaire Flavio Briatore, 71), contributed music to the film’s soundtrack. “The Harder They Fall” starts on October 22nd on Netflix and in US cinemas.
And Leni, who drew everyone’s attention in a stunning black mini dress, was visibly proud of her musical dad!
Leni and her boyfriend Aris drew special attention. It was the teenage couple’s first official appearance – and they both mastered it with flying colors.
The first photos of Aris and Leni appeared in February. In Los Angeles, the two strolled through a flea market, licked an ice cream and simply enjoyed their togetherness.
By the way, the two have been together for a long time. If you browse Aris’ Instagram account, you will find a snapshot in the story highlights that was taken around a year and a half ago. On it you can see: Aris, who cuddles in Leni’s lap and photographs himself in a mirror.
The special thing about Aris’ account: Leni liked his photos, wrote about a photo that Ari with friends shows “Hi Sexy”. But not with her official account, but a second, secret account, which it seems is more private to her. And super practical for sweet love messages.
The young man has even met Lenis’ grandparents. Grandpa Günther Klum (75) in February about BILD: “Leni briefly introduced him to me some time ago – when we were talking about Facetime. Suddenly she said: ‘By the way, this is my friend.’ He made a nice impression. Let’s see what develops there. “
Surprised appearance with Papa Seal
The fact that Leni got along so well with her adoptive father at the premiere may have surprised some fans. Because Heidi Klum’s ex-husband caused quite a stir last summer when he wanted to forbid the GNTM icon from taking their children to Germany for the purpose of filming a new season of “Germany’s Next Top Model”. Seal’s argument at the time: The kids could become infected with the corona virus during their stay.
Heidi Klum, who shares custody with her ex, therefore requested a court hearing. In her application, the mother of four wrote: “I am aware of all the necessary protective measures in connection with the Covid-19 virus and would never put our children at risk.”
In addition, Heidi put it very clearly in her statement: “Our four children have now repeatedly told both me and him – as far as I can see – that they do not want to stay with their father in Los Angeles without me.”
In order to mediate the dispute between her parents, Heidi’s eldest daughter Leni wrote a handwritten declaration to the court on behalf of her siblings, in which she affectionately made it clear to her adoptive father: Papa, your children want to go to Germany with Mama.
In the statement, the then 16-year-old wrote: “It’s tough because I both love my parents, but I think I have to say something. I understand my siblings are too young to speak to the judge, so I enjoy speaking for all of us. My mom has to shoot in Germany for a few months, and my siblings and I want to go with them. So far, my dad has not allowed us to go, although we tried to explain to him our reasons why we want to go. “
The trip to Germany is a “great opportunity” for all four children, and they can also see their grandparents again. Leni said her younger siblings were “really sad” at the thought of being separated from their mother and that they were afraid of not being able to see Heidi for months.
What was Heidi actually doing while Leni was smiling at the film premiere?
While her daughter was shining on the red carpet, mom Heidi posted creepy Polaroids on Instagram, showing the model with chalky white skin, bloodshot eyes and lots of bruises!
But don’t worry, Heidi is fine. The Halloween lover gets herself and her fans in the mood for this year’s horror show …
