Heidi Klum Talks about Her Sudden AGT Exit and Reveals Why She Couldn't Tell Anyone

Famous model Heidi Klum has been through a bit of a rollercoaster with the novel coronavirus. Recently, she opened up on her decision to take time off to cater for her health. 

Yesterday, Heidi appeared in an interview where she confirmed that she would continue as a judge on "America's Got Talent." However, there will be some changes going forward concerning her appearance. 

Heidi had to abruptly leave the "America's Got Talent" set in March after she fell ill. Reports confirmed that she had arrived on the set on a taping day and was active around. However, when the show eventually aired, she was nowhere to be found.

Her fellow co-judges claimed that she had developed a bad case of food poisoning. However, given that fears about the virus were at a high level, people had suspected the worst. 

Heidi did eventually test negative for the virus. However, she explained in the interview that she had been pretty scared. In part, she said:

"...There was no social distancing, no one knew too much about this."

Klum confirmed that she had known something was wrong before the taping. However, she was a bit scared about what it could mean. 

Eventually, she went to the medics and did a check-up to confirm. Still, they told her that nothing was wrong, and she had a fever. 

Eventually, the tests came back, and she found that she didn't have the virus.

Speaking on her ordeal after leaving, Heidi explained that she found it difficult to get a test for the coronavirus. As she said, she and her team couldn't get a test anywhere, even though they had believed the tests were readily available. 

Despite that, Heidi continued to stay home and optimistic. People were concerned about her, but even she didn't know what was going on. The supermodel added:

"...Then once I did get tested, it took weeks to get back… It took a while, so I couldn't really tell people because I didn't know."

Eventually, the tests came back, and she found that she didn't have the virus. So, it's been about getting rid of a nasty fever and following health guidelines.

Despite the lockdown, however, Heidi appears to be having some fun. She regularly keeps fans engaged on social media, even going as far as sharing some of her best makeup tips.

Heidi's social media posts have been as glamorous as she is. Whether it's getting a haircut or showing off her belly after dinner, the model looks stunning.

As for her stint on the show, she will be returning. However, she also confirmed that she wouldn't appear in every episode since she couldn't film them all while ill.
