Tom Kaulitz is a 29-year old German rock star known for his work with “Tokio Hotel.” He’s also 45-year old supermodel Heidi Klum’s new fiance. Rumors about the two first popped up in March after they kissed while Klum was filming on the set of America’s Got Talent. Then, they went public as a couple in May at the Cannes amfAR Gala.

Besides going as the Shrek to Klum’s Princess Fiona for Halloween, Kaulitz started the German rock band in 2001 with his twin brother, Bill, the band’s frontman. The band has sold more than 10 million records worldwide and released five albums, not to mention a slew of extended plays. Their first three albums debuted at no. 1 in Germany and the other two nabbed no. 2 and no.5.

The guitarist sports gauges in both ears. He also loves dogs and has two. After growing up in Germany, he’s trilingual, speaking English, French and German. He may have been destined to be a musician. His father owns a music school called “Rock’s Cool.”

Though he makes anything from pop rock to electropop, Kaulitz is a huge hip-hop fan. His favorite artist is German rapper Samy Deluxe.

Kaulitz moved to Los Angeles with his brother after an incident involving stalking and robbers in 2009. Throughout 2008 and 2009, the two were stalked by several female fans. One even went as far as following them to their parents’ house and attacking their mother. The brothers previously lived in Hamburg, Germany.


Tom was also married to Ria Sommerfeld, a German model for a little over a year. They were together for a little over a year before separating due to “irreconcilable differences” in September 2016. The two had been together since 2011 however that doesn’t look like it will affect his relationship with Klum.
