Heidi Klum & Seal Split

Heidi Klum and Seal are officially getting a divorce, her rep confirms to JustJared.com.

“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,” Heidi, 38, and Seal, 48, wrote in a joint statement. “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 have four children: Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.

Earlier in the weekend, it was speculated that the two would be filing soon.

People first broke the story.

@wren: Seven years esp with 4 kids hardly indicates trying to work out the issues through good marriage counselling for example, which celebs can afford unlike the rest of us.

Read a few articles about couples that were married 50 years or more and they will tell you they were madly in love for a certain number of years, survived some infidelity, hated each other at times, fell back in love a few times and were happy to be together in the end. Though yes not all couples of that era are happy, just the grin and bear it crowd. When you see the husband or wife visiting their spouse with Alzheimer every day in a nursing home, does that kind of love and devotion exist anymore?

If you split at the first sign of issues you are not working on your marriage and I doubt most couples today really give it the good shot because they have an easy out, esp celebrities who are used to instant gratification and they have other options because they have money and beauty.

That said I too thought this was a couple that would defy the celebrity odds guess not. I wondered why Heidi was dressing so badly lately.

So the mags nailed it by saying Seal was running around and abusive. Sometimes they are right.

My aunt had it all and left it all behind . WHA!!
Now her teens see more of their Dad then ever before.
It took her a long time to talk about their separation and divorce while she went for therapy. Life goes on. My Aunt made sure the kids had a very stable home. Heidi will have to do the same for her children.
With the divorce rate being over 60 % no matter who you are i am not shocked. Altho there was no need for the showy image,
I do wish them well.

I have been happily married for the past seven years. I will never lose faith in the wonderful union of Marriage that God created. The problem is that celebrities don’t take marriage seriously there first choice is always divorce. They never seem to seek counseling.So please the word of God says Marriage is honorable and the bed undefiled. Celebrities need to stop playing around with Marriage.

Heidi had ought to keep her snarky comments about others to herself, seems she forgot to worry about her own relationship and family…too busy running her mouth about others.

A lot of that going around, no?

@Grey: It’s not hollywood. The divorce rate among regular folk is 50 percent.

@jo: Johnny and Vanessa AREN’T brokenup. PEOPLE had a serious slow news week that slapped that rumor on the cover. Seal & Heidi? Something else is up there but what? They were just hugged up and loving at Christmas! I digress. Johnny and Vanessa have not split.

Grown apart, really? What their statement really means is that one of them has met someone else and wants out.

no white girl is crazy enough to stay married to a black man that long. who was she kidding?

@observer:

I think that’s ridiculous. Infidelity is grounds for divorce. Why would you stay with someone you can’t trust? You should have more respect for yourself.

LOL. Knew this wouldn’t last. They put on a hell of show for their fans, though. Wedding ceremonies, Halloween parties, red carpet, reality shows. She had the nerve to comment on Angelina’s big family meanwhile, she’s the one who’s been knocked up more. Maybe this means we won’t see her for a while.

It’s the people. When you can be alone and stay sane, find something to do to make yourself happy without looking to your spouse to entertain you 24/7, you will be a person with inner peace who can exist peacefully with another person. People who need lots of excitement (like BRANGELINA) are generally poorer candidates. They get bored and blame their loved one. If Brad Pitt were not in different countries constantly, making movies, going to Hollywood events, schmoozing, he probably would be divorced from Jolie before now. Jolie lives a fast-paced, busy, full life, and together, they are doing a lot of stuff all the time. Family life is their priority. Also, Jolie doesn’t spend a lot of time with other people. You never even see her eating lunch with a “friend.” Her socializing is related to business. I’m sure neither one of them will do something to jeopardize the family… like going on a long tour and spending time away from each other and the kids. Brangelina can’t even “attempt” to get bored right now. The challenge will be later on, when all that dies down and they are just sitting, looking at each other for long periods of time — without all the kids. I think Brad especially needs inspiration from outside himself. He’s not very self motivated imo.

@It’s not the Institution…: WTF are you talking about? This post is about Heidi and Seal, not Brad and Angelina. Are you high, drunk or stupid? Perhaps all three?

Henrietta Hippo @ 01/23/2012 at 10:18 pm

I believe Seal has cheated.. or is about to. That big guy. I’m sure he is still chock full of testosterone. And he’s touring with women vying for his attention? Hah! Heidi has had four kids in a short time, and she doesn’t strike me as a sex goddess. She’s beautiful and I like her personality, but she’s probably tired of trying to keep him satisfied. It’s just hard to please men anyhow. Women have to have babies, raise them half the time, work, cook, clean the house, have sex when they don’t want it, pretend their husband is ALL THAT!!! Women have to do a lot nowadays, and frankly, I don’t believe it is worth it. I married once and that was enough. I will NOT be marrying again. Men are too needy and when you’re not married to them, they are more generous and romantic.

It's not the Institution... @ 01/23/2012 at 10:24 pm

Haha… Oh Shut up! I can say whatever I want to say here. Free Board. You must be one of those Brangelina freaks who can’t read any criticisms of the HOLY ONES! You’re ridiculous and a lunatic. If you don’t like it, LEAVE!

Brad and Angelina will not divorce bc they’re not married.. They’re good for at least another 10 years or so.

Nobody’s perfect. I think Heidi and Seal are couragous to divorce because it’s better to apart and be happy than together and unhappy. I think a split is a little bad moment for a long good moment.
There are couples who are together without love, which continue to stay together just for the popularity and makes fake interviews on magazines Elle, Vogue, Bazaar… Are pathetic.
I think Seal and Heidi are not pathetic, they’re loyal and honest, it’s good for them and their kids.

They know that after divorce they’ll become more popular and demanded, so why not to do so? They have nothing to lose.

@tia:

Sorry about your first marriage, glad you are happily remarried now.

It takes two to make a marriage work or fall apart…sometime people make it work for the wrong reason and some break up for the right reasons.

Do not generalize your experience to every divorce. So far as I am aware SEAL is a sweetheart. Sometimes overprotective but haven’t heard any previous GFs coming out to say anything bad, and he even dated Tyra Banks and another German model/actress who was also pregnant already when he met her..

History usually repeats itself so if he is abusive, it would have already come up, maybe America is just now getting to know Seal but he has been in the business long before Heidi took her first Bikini pic.

Divorce is horrible especially for the children who are going to have to adjust through the inability of their parents to remain married

I wish the children much resilience to get through the reshuffling and hopefully limited future uncles and aunties..:)

How did Seal ever stand that irritating TYRA BANKS! Yuck. I dont believe any man will want to marry her. Her attitude is just so fake!

Next… Jessica Alba and Cash Warren. They look miserable together

i just wish Heidi and Seal would have stayed together instead Heidi decided to FORNICATE with the help SMDH!!
