It was the year 2004 and the German model Heidi Klum made the covers of half the world when announcing the birth of her first daughter, Leni. A girl that she came as a result of the relationship that her top had with the Italian billionaire businessman Flavio Briatore, who never wanted to recognize her as his. A year later, the model met the singer Seal, who legally adopted the little girl and became her father.
Almost two decades have passed since that, and everyone knows that Briatore is the biological father of Leni Samuel -Leni Klum in her budding career as a model. However, it was unknown that the two were in a relationship, even more so that it was close, as the Formula 1 magnate has shown through his Instagram account, where he has posed with his eldest daughter as if nothing had happened during a vacation in Monaco.
"On vacation in Monaco with Leni Klum and Nathan Falco Briatore," writes the Italian businessman, referring to his two children, the second fruit of his relationship with the Italian presenter Elisabetta Gregoraci.
An image that reveals the unknown relationship between father and daughter, which apparently dates back to a few years ago. "We see little of each other but that does not mean that he loves her less," Briatore assured in 2022, "Nathan Falco knew that he had a sister." As he explained, the teenager would have discovered Leni's identity through the Internet, so he asked her parents about it, who told him her story. "He had never told me, probably out of modesty. He waited for me to do it, but they followed each other on Instagram. They had done it all before and better than us adults."
After that first contact between the brothers, the two families would have met in 2021 in Capri, so that the two brothers could finally meet in person. Since then, it seems that the relationship continues, and Leni spends a few days with Briatore and his family every summer.
Briatore also assured that he loves his first daughter very much and that he is "very proud of her", especially after seeing how she is working to succeed as a model. "She is not only beautiful, but strong and independent, enthusiastic about life, although I had nothing to do with it and I am grateful to Heidi for how she raised her," he said. In addition, he revealed that the biggest problem that exists between them is the distance, and that he maintains contact with Seal.
Heidi Klum and Seal divorced after seven years of marriage and four children together: Leni (19), Henry (17), Johan (16) and Lou (14). A relationship that ended due to the incompatibility of the couple's characters, and not by third parties, as was speculated at the beginning. In 2019, the model married the musician Tom Kaulitz, from the band Tokio Hotel, with whom she has lived the love of her life ever since.
