Heidi Klum’s husband Tom Kaulitz has tested negative for the coronavirus, according to his brother Bill Kaultiz.
The 30-year-old Tokio Hotel guitarist was tested along with the 46-year-old supermodel after both fell ill in the wake of her missing an America’s Got Talent taping last week.
His brother Bill made the announcement Monday in his Instagram Stories, but Heidi’s coronavirus status hasn’t been revealed yet.

Tom was spotted Sunday by TMZ getting groceries with Bill at the popular store Erewhon in Los Angeles, raising questions about why he was out in public while still waiting to find out if he had been infected with the coronavirus.
The two musicians, who lead the rock band Tokio Hotel, stepped out wearing respirator masks and gloves as they stocked up on food and supplies.
Bill initially revealed that his brother was in the clear with a screenshot of the original article, before clarifying in a short Insta Stories video.
‘We were just wearing masks to not spread germs and be super protective for ourselves and for other people. That’s why we were doing it. But my brother got his test results back and he is negative,’ he explained.

The brothers’ coronavirus saga began after Heidi arrived for an America’s Got Talent taping last week but had to leave before even setting foot on stage because she felt ill.
Her fellow judges, including Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell and Modern Family’s Sofía Vergara, claimed she had food poisoning, though sources close to Heidi said her illness didn’t sound like food poisoning.
Tom had returned from a tour with his band days earlier and also felt sick around the same time, so the two went into a self-quarantine, though Tom seems to be breaking free that now that he’s gotten a clean bill of health.
On Sunday, Heidi shared a sweet black and white video of her kissing her husband from the other side of a window as she self-quarantined.

‘Like many of you, I also have been sick all week and, unfortunately, my husband who returned from his tour a couple of days ago is also feeling ill. To be safe, we are staying apart until we get the results of our Coronavirus tests (that we were finally able to get today) back,’ she wrote.
‘We don’t want to spread germs and risk others getting sicker… even each other! As much as I want to embrace him and kiss him, it is more important to do the right thing and not spread further. ❤️’

Heidi ended her post with a call for her 7.2 million fans to practice social distancing by staying away from other people and large crows whenever possible, as well to follow the recommendations of local and federal officials on preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
The model revealed in her Instagram Stories Friday that her symptoms including a fever, chills, coughing and a runny nose, but she hadn’t yet been able to get the test after going to two different doctors.
