And before you get your hopes up that this is another “this is going to happen sometime soon” story, let me just bring you back down to reality by telling you that when I say “it’s official,” I mean that Heidi Klum and Seal released a statement to People. It doesn’t get much more official than that, friends:
Heidi Klum and Seal confirm that they are splitting after almost seven years of marriage.
In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, the Project Runway host and the singer say:
“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.
“We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.
“We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”
The couple are parents to Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
What a way to start the week, am I right? It seems like the rumors of the distance getting to them were true, I guess. However, quite a few people are theorizing that Seal must have cheated on Heidi while he was away promoting his new album. This could be true, for all I know. By the way, all I know is that Seal sang that one song from Batman Forever and he’s super into Halloween. I did know that he had a super hot wife, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to true for too much longer, now does it?
Just for funzies, here’s another theory to explain the divorce: Seal has a bad temper, and Heidi it completely over it. That’s what TMZ has to bring to the table:
Heidi Klum is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper … TMZ has learned.
Sources directly connected with the couple tell us … Heidi’s decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity.
But Seal’s inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it’s affecting their children.
TMZ broke the story that Heidi will divorce Seal, and we’ve learned this was not a snap decision. As one source said, “It was a long time in coming.”
We’re also told … their careers also played a part in Heidi’s decision. She has become a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich, and that professional evolution has created a distance between them.
For his part, Seal has a new album coming out and he’s about to launch an international tour.
We’re told Heidi and Seal are still living under the same roof, but that will change very soon.
What do you think? Do you believe TMZ’s claim that there was no infidelity involved? Can you see Seal having an anger problem? Or do you think all the distance was just too much for the relationship to take?
