Heidi Klum Files For Divorce From Seal

by at . Comments

It really is over.

Nearly three months after announcing their surprising separation, Heidi Klum has made it official and filed for divorce from Seal on Friday afternoon.

A petition, which lists irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, seeks joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their four kids.

In other words, she wishes to live primarily with Leni, 7½, Henry, 6½, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2, but with ample visitation and joint legal rights for Seal.

The model is also seeks to have her maiden name restored. She legally changed it to Seal's, Samuel, though professionally she kept using Klum.

"While we enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching, we have decided to separate," the couple said.

"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."

For the couple who wed in Mexico in 2005, the split played out in headlines as the end of a fairy tale as both gradually stopped wearing wedding rings.

Although multiple sources claimed that the couple hoped to reconcile, by mid-February it was clear a reunion would not be in their future after all.

Seal was vocal about their split in the weeks following their announcement, and not for the purposes of trashing Heidi. Just ... to talk about it.

"When you publicize your marriage as much as ours was publicized, when you renew your wedding vows, when you do all those things, what you are saying to people is … you're giving people a picture of an ideal relationship," he said.

"So when it goes south, you can't all of a sudden take the philosophy of a monk and decide to go for a complete vow of silence."

The quieter Heidi Klum, 38, acknowledged in the April issue of Elle that she couldn't control what Seal, 49, said to the press, but "it's hard."

"People don't need to know who did what," she said. "I don't want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had."

Dunno why some mean people say Seal is ugly. He actually has nice features, and his children are so cute. It's the scars on his face that take away from his looks. If he had a bad temper, it's better they parted. As far as the racial thing so many people talk about, maybe they liked/loved each other. What's so unusual about that??

Why white women feel the need to go with ugly black guys remains a mystery. Often they are abused, they get mixed gene kids, etc.. Always seems to be problems.

ginger the only time interracial couples work is when the black ones act white. otherwise, no white person is going to put up with ghetto behavior for the long haul. if black people behave themselves and keep their 'tude in check, perhaps a white person can tolerate them.

Why do people have to make it a racist issue? This couple has decided that they are no longer in love and have gone seperate ways with their lives. It has nothing to do with color. There are so many happily married inter-racial couples.
Maybe they will be better friends not being a couple and therefore be good parents for their children, not having acimony between them. Grow up people who only see their divorce as a color thing...

I can't believe how backward and racist this entire thread is! Damn. All that dating "up and down" stuff. Seriously? In the 21st century you are still speaking this way? Sad. Very sad. Let me guess ... you're all devout Christians too, right? You know following the Master Teacher who said love your brother as yourself. I can't actually remember him saying ... just your white brothers or black brothers, do you?

Its so nice to see that there is no racism left in the world! And contrary to what many believe, all woman dont date men based on how big their junk is! Get real and grow up. Quit bashing people bashed on your own prejudice. And black people say white people are the racist ones? Seems alot of black people are racist too, dont it?
