Drake and Heidi Klum


Heidi Klum revealed she got asked out by Drake – but she never texted him back! (She’s sorry!)


Back in February, when Heidi was still “very single and very ready to mingle,” she went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and played a game of “Who’d You Rather” with the host. The 45-year-old supermodel was pro-Drake all the way for about the first half of the game – until he was pitted against Joaquin Phoenix. She ended up choosing Joaquin over Drake.




So, whatever happened to Heidi Klum’s dating life after that episode? Turns out things did get pretty exciting.


On Tuesday’s episode of Ellen, Heidi sat down with the host again and the two chatted about the outcome of her last guest appearance – she met her current boyfriend, Tokio Hotel’s Tom Kaulitz, on the same day they taped the February episode.


“You put it out into the universe! You really did,” she gushed to Ellen. “And that was a day, actually, when I didn’t want to go out all, because I was working. I came home at night and it was my friend’s birthday. He said, ‘Please come.’ So, I got ready again, I put my heels on and I went to the birthday party—and there he was! It was amazing!”

But that doesn’t mean nobody else came calling. When the host asked who between her top two picks on the “Who’d You Rather” game called her after the February episode, Heidi spilled, “Drake did…Sorry, Drake! You snooze you lose. He called, like, a week too late.”


“I don’t remember when it was, and I didn’t have his number; he didn’t have my number [either]. Someone who I know knows him, and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. This is so weird!’ But I never texted him back, because I found the love of my life,” the Project Runway host elaborated.


She actually feels embarrassed about the whole thing. “Like, what do you say? You want to go out? And I’m like, ‘No.’ It’s better not to say anything. I’m embarrassed about it,” Heidi admitted, and decided to apologize to the rapper.


“Where’s the camera?” she asked. “Drake, I’m sorry I didn’t text you back. You’re cool. I still love your music! I still love your music! I’ll probably come to the concerts very soon.”


She also admits she’s not good with the “texting stuff.”


“I’m not good with these kinds of things. I have to learn. You need to write a book about this kind of stuff,” she told Ellen. “I’m not good with the texting stuff, in any case, or this texting etiquette. Like, some people wait a certain amount of days to call you back or text you back. I don’t know. I just didn’t get it at all!”


And if you’re looking for love, listen up. Reflecting on how she met Tom, Heidi also shared something she learned. “So, anyone: The day when you don’t want to go out—that’s when you have to go out! It’s what happened to me! It really did!” she said.
