Helene Boshoven Samuel is the first daughter of the famous supermodel, TV personality, businesswoman, singer, producer and author Heidi Klum. Helene Boshoven Samuel is 13 years old in 2017.
Helene was born on May 4, 2004 in New York, USA. Heidi had romantic affairs with Flavio Briatore in 2014, and he became the father of Helene Boshoven Samuel (now Leni Klum). Shortly after pregnancy, thir relationship fell apart. The couple split in 2004.
Hiedi Klum’s eldest daughter Leni’s father Flavio Briatore (born in 1950) is significantly older than her mother Heidi Klum (born 1973). Helene Boshoven Samuel lived with her mother’s family in Los Angeles, and so her biological father who lived in London at that time wasn’t seeing much of his daughter. We used to speak on the phone for hours, but the distance between them was unbridgeable. Briatore didn’t think that telephone conversations were enough for parenting a child. Recently, Flavio Briatore admitted he no longer has a relationship with his daughter.
After that, Heidi started dating Seal. In 2004, Seal was present for Helen’s birth. Klum and Seal got married in 2005 (10 May 2005 – 14 October 2014), thus Seal became a step-father of Helene Boshoven Samuel. Helene Boshoven Samuel was subsequently raised by her mom’s now ex-husband Seal, and the girl’s surname was changed to Samuel.
Famous British singer Seal (stage name) was born 19 February 1963. He is of Nigerian descent. The “Kiss From a Rose” singer’s real name is Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel.
Leni Klum’s mother and step-father later became parents to: Lou Sulola Samuel, Henry Guenther Ademola Dashtu Samuel and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel. Thus, Leni Klum has three half-siblings.
In 2012, Helene Boshoven Samuel’s parents Heidi Klum and Seal split.
In 2015, Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni Klum was present with her mum during the finale of Germany’s Next Top Model 10th season. The show was interrupted and viewers were evacuated, due to bomb threat. A man was arrested, but the suspicious suitcase turned out to be harmless.
Leni’s father Flavio Briatore is an Italian businessman, who started his career as a restaurant manager in Italy.
In the 1980s, Briatore was convicted on several fraud charges in Italy, though the convictions were later extinguished by an amnesty. He set up a number of successful Benetton franchises. In 1990, he was promoted to manager of the Benetton Formula One racing team (became Renault F1 in 2002). He was part-owner of London’s Queens Park Rangers F.C from 2007 to 2010. In 2009, Briatore was forced to resign from the ING Renault F1 due to his involvement in race fixing at the Singapore Grand Prix in 2008. Later he was banned indefinitely from events sanctioned by the FIA, this ban was later overturned by a French Tribunal de Grande Instance.
Does Leni get any support from her biological father? Will Helene Boshoven Samuel claim part of her father’s on his death? We don’t know, and time will tell.
Heidi and Singer Seal have 4 children together; Helene Boshoven Samuel, Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel and Lou Sulola.
Helene Boshoven Samuel’s grandmother Erna Klum, the mother of a German-American supermodel Heidi Klum was a hairdresser. Leni’s grandfather Günther was a cosmetics-company executive.
