Oh, what might have been. Heidi Klum revealed in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres this week that she ignored a text from Drake when he reached out after a different Ellen appearance last winter.

Heidi Klum ignored Drake's text for a date

Back in February, Klum and DeGeneres played a game of 鈥淲ho鈥檇 You Rather,鈥 where the America鈥檚 Got Talent judge had to choose among famous men including Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Rock, Milo Ventimiglia, Chadwick Boseman, Adrien Brody, Harry Styles, Brad Pitt, Liev Schreiber, Chance the Rapper, and Drake, who ended up her top pick.

Not long afterward, the 鈥淗otline Bling鈥 rapper texted Klum. But she had already met someone else. 鈥淪orry, Drake! You snooze, you lose, you know what I mean?鈥 she joked during her most recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, September 11.

鈥淗e was basically a week too late,鈥 she explained. 鈥淪omeone who I know knows him, and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me. I was like, 鈥極h, my gosh. This is so weird!'鈥

Unfortunately, their potential romance wasn鈥檛 meant to be. 鈥淚 never texted him back,鈥 she admitted. 鈥淏ecause I found the love of my life.鈥 (Klum has been dating Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz for seven months after reportedly meeting him through Germany鈥檚 Next Top Model.)

While she didn鈥檛 return Drake鈥檚 text, Klum hopes that there are no hard feelings. 鈥淚 mean, what do you do?鈥 she told DeGeneres, before sending a message to the rapper himself. 鈥淒rake, I鈥檓 sorry I didn鈥檛 text you back. You鈥檙e cool. I still love your music! I still love your music! I鈥檒l probably come to the concerts very soon. It鈥檚 fine 鈥 I鈥檒l buy a ticket!鈥

The model also spoke about leaving Project Runway for a new fashion show with Tim Gunn. 鈥淎fter 16 years, I felt like it was time for this baby to walk by itself and for me to push out a new one,鈥 she quipped. 鈥淚 feel like what we鈥檝e never had at Project Runway was something for the designers, where the designers create something that then can actually end up in your closets. So I think it鈥檚 amazing now that when you see our new fashion show, they have the opportunity to sell the clothes to you guys if you like them. So I think that was always missing and I love that aspect of it.鈥
