A few weeks after her ex-husband Seal accused her of “fornicating with the help,” Heidi Klum has come clean about her relationship with her bodyguard. And yes, they are “fornicating”. If you think the only place this type of romance has blossomed before is in your favorite Whitney Houston – Kevin Costner movie, think again: The classic example of a beauty getting it on with a former employee is socialite/actress/convicted bank robber Patty Hearst, who married her former bodyguard in 1979.

A more familiar one is Kim Kardashian, whose dalliances with her own former bodyguard, an Australian named Shengo, were played out on episodes of Kim and Kourtney Take New York before she decided a basketball player would make for better television.

While it’s nice to have proof that you don’t need to be a multi-millionaire or have the voice of an angel to date a supermodel or a socialite, it’s probably a sign that we’d have a better dating life if we hit the gym more often. Another case in point: Swedish Princess Victoria, who actually married her former personal trainer in 2010. The lesson? If you want to become a European prince, lift some weights.
