Heidi Klum is single again.

After dating for a year and a half, the supermodel and her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten separated a few weeks ago, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

Klum, 40, started dating Kirsten, 41, a few months after she filed for divorce from Seal after several years of marriage.

“Martin was there for her during a challenging time in her life and it was something she will always be grateful for,” says a friend close to Klum.

Kirsten and Klum are also ending their professional relationship.

“They are no longer working together,” another source close to Klum confirms to PEOPLE.

“Life is about timing. He was incredibly supportive and they were there for each other, but they’re moving on now,” adds the source. “They still have a great friendship.”

Josh Lucas and his wife, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, are splitting after almost two years of marriage, PEOPLE has confirmed.

“She filed for divorce in New York this month,” a source tells PEOPLE, remaining mum about the reason for the split.

The actor, 42, and Henriquez, 28, a writer, met through a chance encounter at a dog park in 2011.

“It was one of those weird … classic New York meetings,” Henriquez later told the Huffington Post. “I don’t believe in love at first sight at all, but lightning definitely struck.”

Becoming engaged six weeks later, after Henriquez opened up about the cervical cancer she was fighting, the couple quietly wed in New York City’s Conservatory Garden in March 2012.

“We were at his apartment and I remember thinking, ‘I have to tell him or I have to walk away, because this is something big and this could be a relationship,'” she said at the time. “I just blurted out. ‘I’m sick,’ and he was the first person I told.”

“Well that’s going to be a problem for me,” Lucas replied. “Because I’m already in this.”

“I felt like there was a 100 percent commitment and support during the whole thing. I was falling in love with him while I was starting treatment,” adds Henriquez.

In June 2012, the couple welcomed a son, Noah Rev.

“Everyone says it’s the greatest adventure you’ll ever have and I’m amazed at how much I’m loving it,” the Sweet Home Alabama star told PEOPLE that December.

A rep for Lucas has not commented.

Corinna Schumacher: ‘Michael is a Fighter’

Corinna Schumacher: ‘Michael is a Fighter’

Posted by Adam

CORINNA Schumacher insists her husband, Michael Schumacher, is a fighter — following a report claiming the Formula One star could remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.

Corinna, 44, raises two teenage children with Michael — who suffered injuries to his brain in a ski accident on December 29.

Schumacher’s condition remains stable but there is a firewall of silence from his medical team about the intense battle being waged to try to bring him back to normality.

The family took to Schumacher’s website recently to thank fans for their support.

“We are deeply moved by the fact that the wishes of Michael from around the world still do not tear,” said the statement, which was published in German and translated into English.

“This gives us strength. Thank you all! Many thanks to the Kerpen Fan, 1 FC Köln and Schalke 04, but also all the other people and groups of fans that support us and Michael. We all know he is a fighter and will not give up!

“We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael Which nursing are being sent. That gives us strength. Thank you all so much! Thank you to the fan club in Kerpen, to 1 FC Köln and Schalke 04 so but to everybody else and other fan groups who are supporting Michael. We all know, he is a fighter and will not give up!”

Meanwhile, Corinna is trying to keep things normal for the sake of their kids.

“Corinna is one of the strongest women out there,” a source said.

“She’s amazing: doing her best to be there for Michael, and keeping things relatively normal for their kids.

“Corinna has been Michael’s rock throughout their marriage. This is no different.”

Katy Perry Has Faith in Obama, Aliens and John Mayer

01/21/2014 at 11:00 AM EST

Katy Perry and John Mayer are a couple happily dating – and for now, nothing more.

Perhaps because her marriage to Russell Brand ended so disastrously, the pop star is completely fine with not having a timetable for taking her current relationship to the next level.

“I’m just having a wonderful experience with a wonderful guy. There’s no rush,” the pop star, 29, tells GQ‘s February issue.

Asked how she and Mayer got back together after their brief split, Perry replies: “I think that I needed to grow up.”

She did plenty of that after Brand texted her that he wanted a divorce while she was on a global tour – during which he never caught a single show or even visited her, she reveals now. But that’s all in the past, and in the new interview, Perry displays a renewed faith in just about everything, from President Obama to aliens.

“I see everything through a spiritual lens,” she says. “I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet.”

On the topic of the president, she adds: “I might have won Wisconsin for him. Actually, I didn’t do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice.”

She also, of course, has faith in God, and reveals that he answered a very special prayer of hers when she was a girl.

“I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God,” she says. “I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’ God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”

But on that score, she is proud. “I’ve never had any plastic surgery,” she says. “Not a nose, not a chin, not a cheek, not a t–. So my messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an au naturel product.”
