Fashion queen Heidi Klum isn’t dating an A-lister, but she’s making sure bodyguard and new man Martin Kristen looks like one! The Project Runway star allegedly dropped $10,000 on new clothes for her man at posh shop Barneys in Beverly Hills, but sources say manly Martin’s fighting Heidi’s belittling makeover.
“She would have bought out the entire men’s department but he put up a fight,” a shopper dished to The National Enquirer. “She actually only bought him a couple of new suits, some shirts and two pairs of shoes, but the bill turned out to be more than $10,000 because Heidi only gets the best of the best,” the source revealed. Heidi may want closets full of designer tags, but Martin doesn’t seem to have the same expensive taste and reportedly lost it when he saw the five-figure bill.
“He nearly had a heart attack,” the insider dished. “He’s got a lot of pride and he’s not into fashion, so it took a lot of convincing to get him to go shopping in the first place. He really doesn’t want Heidi to spend money on him. But Heidi finally dragged him to Barneys and basically pointed out everything she wanted him to wear.”
Controlling much? Of course, Heidi has a lot more cash than her man does, as TMZ estimated her worth at $70 million, while Yahoo! reported that in Hollywood “an experienced bodyguard may earn $100,000 per year plus bonuses”. But from what we’ve seen of Martin, he’s a jeans and old plaid shirt kind of guy, rocking very casual looks to soccer games and concerts with Heidi and her kids. Face it, Heidi, if you wanted an uber fashionable man, you should have stayed with Seal!
