Most recently, he talked about the breakup with Piers Morgan (who I, personally, would not trust with so much as an Easy-Bake Oven).
“It doesn’t really make sense,” Seal said in an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. “The truth of the matter is all I can tell you most sincerely is that it wasn’t any one particular thing.”
Seal couldn’t say enough nice things about Klum, “this most fantastic woman.” He said he hadn’t removed his ring because, “It stands for respect. It stands for loyalty. It stands for incredible memories.”
Will they ever reconcile? “Never say never,” Seal said. “I’m not going to sit here and BS you and tell you we haven’t had problems. Of course we’ve had problems—otherwise why are we splitting up?”
Nevertheless, he said, “My love for her has not waned one iota.”
So here is what we know:
– Numerous things contributed to the couple’s breakup
– Seal is still in love with Heidi
– Seal will keep right on wearing his wedding ring
– As of this afternoon, Heidi is still wearing her wedding ring
– Seal, without saying it directly, holds out hope for reconciliation
This is just a guess, but people are really, really fascinated with the whole Seal/Heidi breakup because, seriously, WTH? (Also, the breakup is beginning to sound like Heidi’s idea.)
Seal attempted to explain the rationale to Access Hollywood:
“There is nothing to reconcile. We haven’t fallen out,” the singer explained. “We’re not getting divorced. We’re not even legally separated. We are separated. The reality of the situation is we have grown apart. And so… is there a chance of us getting back together? Honestly, Billy, I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that.”
And then there’s this!
Seal, who is still wearing his wedding ring, said his focus is making sure the woman he fell in love with is content.
“My main priority is that [Heidi] is happy. I just want her to be happy,” he continued. “I want our children to be happy, of course. But I want her to be happy. It’s always been like that.”
Adding, “We’re both pretty smart people and both of us understand that the healthy thing to do right now is to not live a lie because of our children. Forget what the outside world thinks…. The priority is my wife and our children. And I put that before anyone else. And so my first agenda is to figure out what is best for that situation. Everything else will take care of itself.”
Certain smuthounds are muttering that this whole romantic dissolution is, in fact, a hoax, intended to boost sales of Seal’s latest album Soul 2.
But I, for one, give the couple the benefit of the doubt. Fingers crossed for them.
