Heidi Klum and Seal Confirm It's Over; Singer's Temper Reportedly to Blame

by at . Comments

Two days after reports first surfaced that they are divorcing, Heidi Klum and Seal have confirmed that they are splitting up after almost seven years of marriage.

In a 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 while we 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.

The model, 38, and singer, 48, began dating in 2003, got engaged in 2004 and wed in 2005. Despite reports that the split was not a done deal, it is.

So what triggered the seemingly perfect couple's breakup?

TMZ, which first reported the story of the impending divorce, says Heidi's decision to leave Seal has nothing to do with a third party or infidelity.

Seal's inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, however, in no small part because it's affecting their four small children.

It was not a snap decision. A source said, "It was a long time in coming."

Their careers also played a part in Heidi's decision. She has become an extremely rich entrepreneur, and that professional evolution created a distance between them.

For his part, Seal has a new album coming out and he's about to launch an international tour, so the distance factor was about to get even worse as well.

Carolyn, you truly believe white people are putting YOUR people in jail? Honey, black people earned their right for jail - they got there all on their own doing. And you say whites are injecting you with disease? I assume you mean AIDS. Well, again, honey, black people breed like rabbits and don't have the good sense to use rubbers, so any AIDS they contrcated they, again, did so all on their own. White are not demonizing black people. They are doing that all on their own, by the way they do not care for their children, they cannot hold a job, they steal, rob, carjack, drug deal, kill...why should anyone respect behavior like that? Do some research on YOUR people before passing judgment, honey.

@ truth... you are just another white racist who think that you are superior... You all have something to prove, but we are the CHOSEN PEOPLE... no matter how you have tried to break us we are still here... Did you white people ever asked yourselves how come a whole race of people do not have a history... This is very odd to me; keep putting us in jail, injecting us with diseases, demonizing our race, yeah you think you all are so good because you are white... I say white trash with a spit... Most of you whites are going straight to a literal place call "HELL" Enjoy eternity whites...

Statistics show that black men's bad temper is a result of their lower levels of education. I have seen it in the work place. Black men just are not capable of staying focused or following through with assigned tasks. They cannot seem to show up on time for work, or for that matter, work their entire shift without leaving early for lunch, returning late from lunch, or just disappearing during the day. It is frustrating to the hard working white people in the office who must compensate for what isn't done by the black employees.

How shallow people can be. Why must this be about race? A couple that loved each other couldn't make it work, period. These comments say more about the posters than about the situation.

reed it is true. all the web sites talk about black men's BBC and so white women think that will satisfy them more. however, do they want to be around them after the sex? if not, then the black man will get mad and beat you. it is a vicious circle. don't let the BBC make you think that going black is the way. it is a whole culture you will need to accept, and that culture is different from how white people are raised.

White American Women are being looked at as Whores more and more each day. It's really a shame but when known Celebrites take to a BBC then all of them are suspect. It's Human Nature to wonder where these Women's Dignity has gone. That don't seem to understand that in this World of "Post Racism" that they will always be Branded. It's not all bad though. This Flow of Life is just the "Pruning" of the Tree of White Women. Celebrites can buy their way clear of the brunt of isolation with White Society. Everyday White Women cannot. They are eternally Fucked.

I think Heidi Klum is ungrateful. Seal picked her abandoned, Seal took her, wiped off her tears, married her & adopted d baby. Team Seal! Love him.

4 children and 7 years of marriage. When Heidi was on The Piers Morgan Show a few weeks ago, while continuing to praise Seal to the highest, she let it be known that she was Not having any more children. Only the 2 of them know about the final straw that led to splitsville, but the video that the two of them made together last year with him singing "I belong to You and You belong to me" showed (model wife) Heidi looking very uncomfortable while the cameras were rolling. I guess getting married every year (as Heidi and Seal chose to do) is No guarantee that you will stay married. PEACE!!
