Heidi Klum's boyfriend has responded to accusations he was pictured kissing another woman.

The supermodel mogul (44) and art dealer Vito Schnabel (30) have been dating since 2014 and earlier this week, grainy pictures alleging he was kissing another woman, were published in a British newspaper.

While both have remained silent since the pictures were taken, Schanbel has broken his silence and described it as an "innocent situation" that has been misinterpreted.

"The claims that have been made are a misinterpretation of an entirely innocent situation. There is nothing more to this than I was simply saying goodnight to a family friend and we went on our separate ways," he told People in a statement.

The mother-of-four was pictured in New York City on Friday putting on a brave face as she was bombarded with questions about her other half, but a source confirmed the pair are still very much an item.

Last year, Klum said she is "very much in love" with Vito. He has a history with dating older women in Hollywood, including Elle Macpherson (53) and Demi Moore (54).

When asked what in particular she was so attracted to, she explained: "How do you know when it is? You just feel it, and then you know? Is there something that you can pinpoint on someone? It’s just a whole package that you fall in love with, right?"

Heidi was married to singer Seal for seven years and has four children.
