2020–present: Business ventures

In February 2021, Heatherton co-founded Resistance Chicago Lagree, a group fitness studio in Chicago. Heatherton wrote about her decision to open a fitness studio on the company's blog post: "I started a fitness studio because it was a way for me to take something that I am genuinely passionate about and share it directly with the people around me. It was important to me that the next chapter of my life after modeling was more authentic. My passion was never lingerie, luxury products, or social media. My proudest accomplishment is not what my body looked like when it was framed by angel wings on a runway. My proudest accomplishment is building Resistance, channeling the challenges from my past into something that helps people feel good about their bodies."

Personal life

She currently resides in Chicago, Illinois. She is the godmother to model Lily Aldridge’s daughter.

She has supported numerous charities, including Global Poverty Project, and the Global Citizen Festival, a concert to combat poverty held in Central Park that attracted 60,000 attendees.

Morton Square Condominium filed a civil lawsuit against Heatherton stating that the model "regularly causes and allows unreasonable levels of noise and bass vibrations... disturbing the condo's residents and interfering with their ability to use and enjoy their units." Fashion stylist Clare Byrne sued Heatherton in 2017 for $10 million as compensation for a proposed sportswear line called RetroActive that never got off the ground.

In April 2019, Heatherton filed for bankruptcy, claiming to be "more than $500,000 in debt and made less than $3,000 this year." $100,000 of the debt was to Clare Byrne, her former business partner.

Heatherton dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio from December 2011 to November 2012.

On March 2, 2022, Heatherton announced her engagement to American-Polish trader Karol Kocemba.
