In February 2023, Tom Kaulitz and Heidi Klem faced the abrupt loss of their Irish Wolfhound, Anton. This heart-wrenching event followed the loss of their German Shorthaired Pointer, Capper, just a month earlier. Adding to the sorrow, Tom’s twin brother, Bill Kaulitz, lost his own dog a week prior. Given the close timing of these losses, the group harbors suspicions of poisoning as a potential cause.
Tom Kaulitz and Heidi Klum experienced the loss of their 15-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer, Capper. Despite the dog’s advanced age, the couple had concerns about poisoning as the cause of death, particularly given the proximity in time to the passing of their Irish Wolfhound, Anton.
Uschi and Jäger (Dog)
Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz currently have two German Shorthaired Pointers with very German names: Uschi and Jäger. In September 2023, a couple of months after the devastating loss of their dogs Anton and Capper, Klum got the two pups as a birthday surprise for her husband, Tom.
Heidi Klum is a German and American model, television host, producer, and businesswoman. She appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1998 and was the first German model to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She was also the host of the reality television show “Project Runway.”
Klum initially gained widespread recognition as a model, gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and becoming one of the first Victoria’s Secret Angels. However, her career reached new heights when she turned to television, serving as both a host and a judge on shows like “Project Runway” and “America’s Got Talent.” These ventures not only showcased her versatility but also turned her into a household name.
In May 2011, Forbes magazine estimated Klum’s total earnings for that year as US$20 million. She was ranked second on Forbes’ list of the “World’s Top-Earning Models”. Forbes noted that since ending her 13-year run as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, Klum has become more of a businesswoman than a model. In 2008, she became an American citizen while maintaining her native German citizenship.
Collaborations have played an important role in Klum’s career, bringing her together with a diverse array of individuals from various sectors. Some of these collaborations include working with Tim Gunn on “Project Runway,” appearing on talk shows hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon, and participating in charity events alongside Elton John and Bill Clinton. In the fashion world, she has worked with iconic designers such as Michael Kors and Zac Posen. Klum has also partnered with businesses and moguls, like the collaboration with New Balance to launch her own sportswear collection and her work with Lidl, a European supermarket chain, to create an exclusive fashion line. Her partnership with Matt Lauer for interviews and her involvement with Seal, her former husband, in co-parenting also shine light on her ability to mesh well with different personalities.
Over the years, Klum has been honored with numerous titles and distinctions, underlining her impact in multiple domains. She won an Emmy for her role as the host of “Project Runway,” which also received a Peabody Award during her tenure. Other notable achievements include her nomination for Teen Choice Awards for her role in “America’s Got Talent” and her receipt of the Crystal Cross Award by the American Red Cross for her charity work.
