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.

I feel Heidi is a bitch. Seal is a beautiful talented man. I love him! He took a woman who was impregnated & dumped, married her & adopted her child. How many men are willing to marry an abandoned pregnant woman? Seal please come to me, I am available.
