Heidi Klum models a pink sweater and no bottoms

Heidi Klum gave her 7M Instagram followers a look at her private world on Tuesday.

The German wonder was seen getting prepped by her glam team, which consists of Linda Hay for makeup and Lorenzo Martin for hair.

While sitting pretty in a chair, the former Victoria’s Secret model seemed to have no bottoms on under her pink sweater as she modeled black kinky boots.

It takes a (mini) village: Heidi Klum gave her Instagram followers a look at her private world on Tuesday. The German wonder was seen getting prepped by her glam team, which consists of Lina Hay for makeup and Lorenzo Martin for hair

The caption read, ‘Love you 2.’ The room was a glam room with lights, mirrors, and a table top with a thick rug under the cover girl’s feet.

Klum did not say what she was getting all dolled up for. 

This comes after the star was seen modeling fun gowns while at the beach in California by shutterbug Rankin as she danced to the Selena Gomez song Look At Her Now.

This comes after the cover girl has seemingly walked back her comments in which she defended America’s Got Talent against charges of racism.

Klum looked to be having a great time in Malibu. And she slipped into several different looks for Rankin.

Heidi also modeled a spring gown that had a floral print with ruffles up the hem and a zig-zag tie enclosure over her chest; she added long earrings as well.

Next it was a fluffy pink dress that also showed off her legs as she added red stiletto heels while sitting in the back of a red Mercedes-Benz 560 SL convertible. 

After initially insisting that her experience with the talent show was ‘amazing’, the 46-year-old has clarified those remarks, in an interview with People on Friday.  

‘My experience may not be the same as Gabrielle’s’ said the TV host.  

‘Recently, a reporter asked me to share my thoughts about Gabrielle Union’s experiences while working as a judge on America’s Got Talent,’ began the Germany’s Next Top Model host.

‘I told the reporter that I had not experienced similar issues while I was a judge on the show — my experience was a positive one. I can only speak of my own truth, and by no means is that meant to negate or question Gabrielle’s truth.’

‘I am aware that my experience may not be the same as Gabrielle’s.’    

The German-American model had previously insisted that her experience on the NBC reality competition show had been great as she has not experienced the toxic work environment allegedly described by 47-year-old Union.

Heidi – who is one of the judges replacing Union and Julianne Hough – said during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour: ‘I’ve only had an amazing experience.

‘I can’t speak for [Gabrielle]. I didn’t experience the same thing. To me, everyone treats you with the utmost respect. I’ve never seen anything that was weird or hurtful.’

Klum has returned to the series alongside newcomer Alesha Dixon who is a British singer and rapper.

Heidi was previously a judge over six seasons (8-13) from 2013 to last year before her comeback.

This comes just days after NBC said an investigation into Gabrielle Union’s complaints of racism and other troubling behavior on set of Simon Cowell’s America’s Got Talent will be taken very seriously.

On Saturday, the network’s entertainment chief Paul Telegdy said the company will respond appropriately when it receives the findings of its inquiry, which he said may be completed by the end of January.

‘I’m very confident if we learn something … we will put new practices in place if necessary. We certainly take anyone’s critique of what it means to come to work here incredibly seriously,’ the NBC Entertainment chairman told a TV critics meeting during a Q&A session.

‘We want to always go after the truth. That’s our culture here, you can ask anyone who works here,’ he said.

Union was a judge on the talent showcase for a season, until she and fellow freshman judge Hough weren’t asked to return.

The trade publication Variety reported that Union, who is black, believed she was fired because she had asked NBC and the show’s producers to respond to an environment that tolerated racist jokes and remarks. 

That included what Union said were multiple notes from producers saying she was wearing her hair ‘too black’ for the America’s Got Talent audience.

Union had also complained of other behavior, such as judge-producer Simon Cowell’s smoking on the indoor set, Variety reported in November.

NBC has spoken with Union as part of its formal investigation that began in early December.

Without directly referring to NBC or the two companies that produce the show, Fremantle and Syco, Union has tweeted about her situation several times, acknowledging the support she’s gotten and retweeting instructions on how to give a proper apology.

Union’s husband, former NBA player Dwyane Wade, and other prominent people have called for answers on why she was fired.

In a statement last November, NBC and Fremantle defended what they called the show’s ‘long history of inclusivity and diversity.’

The Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, of which Union is a member, also said that it was working with the actress to investigate her complaints.

The revelation comes just a month after 60-year-old Cowell’s antics were reportedly at the center of the five-hour meeting Gabrielle Union held with NBC executives on Wednesday following her shock axing from America’s Got Talent. 

Sources familiar with Union’s closed-door talks told Deadline at the time that ‘the great part of the discussion’ revolved around co-star Cowell’s ‘acerbic behavior’ and his ‘overlording’ on the set of the show. 

Union also reportedly complained about the fact that Cowell often smoked  on the indoor set of the show.  

‘The ball is in NBC’s court to see if they can get Cowell to agree to make some changes to the way things are done on the show,’ the insider told Deadline.

However, that may be difficult given that Cowell is both the creator and producer of America’s Got Talent. The media mogul has also been a judge on the program since 2016. 

Union, meanwhile, was only brought on to the show last season on a contract. 

It’s believed Union and Cowell clashed immediately. 

Back in July, as tensions reached breaking point, the pair met at Cowell’s Malibu beach house to talk through their issues, according to Vanity Fair. 

During that talk, Cowell is alleged to have urged Union to bring any issues she had to him – ‘a request that Union took as an attempt to mask bad behavior’.  

After complaining to execs about the toxic work environment, her contract was not renewed.

Amid outrage at the news, Union met with NBC to air her grievances on Wednesday.  

‘We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday,’ 47-year-old Union tweeted

‘I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change.’ 

A bombshell Variety report first made the claims that judges Union and her co-star Julianne Hough’s contracts were not renewed after they had complained about alleged racist jokes and a toxic environment behind the scenes of the show.

The conflict was reportedly sparked when Jay Leno made an anti-Korean slur during his guest appearance on the show back in April.
