In a new interview with Elle magazine, Klum is going on the record for the first time since the couple split in January.
“Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary — especially for our children — to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
And, in fact, Klum admits that she’s experiencing the downside of living life in the public eye.
“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado,” she says. “It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life.”
