Heidi Klum‘s oldest daughter, Leni Klum went to Italy in 2018 to see her biological father. Heidi’s ex-husband Seal raised Heidi’s daughter Leni as his own for all those years, until the German-American supermodel got married to Tom Kaulitz.
The news showed pictures of Leni and her father last year. Here is everything you need to know about Flavio, an Italian businessman who is Leni’s real father.
Who Is Leni’s Real Father?
Leni Klum’s real father is Flavio Briatore. The 68-year-old Italian businessman went out with Heidi Klum at the start of 2003. In 2004, after they broke up, Leni was born.
Flavio Briatore was also the Commercial Director of the Benetton Formula One racing team. Later, he was named the MD of Benetton Formula. From 2004 to 2009, he was also the team leader for Renault. After being accused of many things, Flavio left Renault in 2009.
Flavio is known as the playboy for Benetton. He is also known as a soccer tycoon, a nightclub owner, and, most of all, a “babe magnet.” Because of his strange personality, he broke up with Heidi.
Flavio has been linked to some of the most beautiful women in the world, including Heidi, Adriana Volpe, Eva Herzigova, Naomi Campbell, and Elle Macpherson. Seal took Leni in after he and Heidi broke up. The seal was Heidi’s ex-husband.
Seal and Heidi also have three other children. Reports say that Heidi and Briatore stayed in touch and even got together in 2018 for a heartwarming get-together. So, this was the first time Leni met her dad.
A Heartwarming Get-together With Flavio…
In 2018, pictures of Leni with her biological father, Flavio Briatore, were shown in several news outlets. The Italian businessman reportedly had dinner with Leni and Heidi at the Cala Di Volpe hotel in Porto Cervo. They were joined by Heidi’s ex-husband Sean and their three kids.
The site writes that a source said, “Everyone was happy and having fun.” Flavio also ate with the family. It’s not clear if this was a one-time thing or if he’ll see Leni again. Flavio talked about his relationship with his daughter in a past interview.
He said that Leni is his biological daughter, but the three of them agreed that it would make more sense for Seal to adopt her because a child needs to grow up in a family, which playboy couldn’t give them. In 2016, Flavio said that his relationships with Heidi and Seal were strong.
It turned out that Leni and Flavio used to talk on the phone when Leni was a kid. Heidi was living in Los Angeles at the time, and Flavio was living in London. Flavio also had a son at that time. He married model Elisabetta Gregoraci in 2008, and they had a son together.
In his last interview, Flavio said that he had accepted what was going on. “A baby you never see is hard to miss. But I know that Leni hasn’t been left alone. “In the end, Flavio said, “Leni is in Seal’s family, and Nathan is in mine.” Heidi Klum, a 46-year-old supermodel, is now married to Tom Kaulitz, co-founder of the rock band Tokio Hotel. They just celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
