Seal collapses with laughter into his girlfriend Laura Strayer arms in Cannes 

They say couples that laugh together stay together. 

And British singer-songwriter Seal and his girlfriend Laura Strayer looked happy in love as they were seen giggling on their hotel balcony in Cannes on Thursday. 

Putting on a cosy display with his other half, the four-time Grammy winner, 59, collapsed into his partner’s arms as he was left in hysterics as they shared a private joke.

The record producer couldn’t keep the smile off his face as he looked longingly at Laura. 

Opting for a casual look on the day, the songwriter dressed appropriately for the soaring French temperatures wearing a navy T-shirt.

Showing off his love for bling, he wore a god tag necklace around his neck and showed off a statement piece watch as enjoyed some quality time with his significant other.

Meanwhile, Laura also went for a dressed down look wearing a black tank top as she looked smitten with her beau on the balcony. 

The blonde, who wore her hair back in a relaxed bun, was beaming as she larked around with her boyfriend. 

Laura is alleged to have begun living and working at Seal and ex-wife Heidi Klum’s mansion in 2006, the year after the onetime couple got married.

She reportedly no longer works for the English star or supermodel, 48, and has since secured a job elsewhere in the music business.

After Heidi and Seal separated in 2012 she began running around with her South African bodyguard Martin Kirsten and remained with him for over a year.

Seal then publicly accused Heidi of having cheated on him with Martin, telling TMZ that ‘whilst I didn’t expect any better from him I would’ve thought Heidi would’ve shown a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were.’

Last August, after Seal and Strayer were seen on a trip to France, a source in Heidi’s camp told Page Six: ‘Of course, we all want him to be happy – but it’s definitely ironic that he’s dating the help when he had such strong feelings about Heidi seeing Martin.’

Heidi and her ex-husband have three children – Henry, 15, Johann, 14, and Lou, 11 – and he also adopted her daughter Leni, 17, from a previous relationship.

Last year, Seal told Us Weekly that co-parenting after a breakup ‘can be challenging. It requires teamwork. If you are a team, if both parents are a team, then it’s really easy and that’s not a real challenge at all… But you have to be a team. And if you’re not a team, then it can all fall to pieces.’

Seal then explosively claimed that he and Heidi ‘never had that teamwork’ with one another when it came to bringing up their children. 

Their differences hit the headlines in 2020 when she wanted to take the children to her native country so she could film Germany’s Next Top Model there.

Seal objected on the grounds that the children might be exposed to coronavirus but an emergency court hearing was held and Heidi prevailed.

Although she was permitted to take them to Germany he was given ‘expanded time’ with them before and after the trip.

Since 2019, Heidi has been married to her fellow German Tom Kaulitz, who rose to fame as the guitarist for the band Tokio Hotel.
