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."

Perhaps this is why Heidi felt being married to a black guy was not going to work (news about warren sapp, another famous black guy, taken from usatoday): FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Former NFL star Warren Sapp owes more than $6.7 million to creditors and back child support and alimony, according to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing in South Florida. Sapp's $6.45 million in assets includes 240 pairs of Jordan athletic shoes worth almost $6,500, a $2,250 watch and a lion skin rug worth $1,200. He also reported losing his 2002 Super Bowl ring with the Bucs and his 1991 national championship ring from the University of Miami. OK - he lost me at the fact this loon owns 240 pairs of Jordan athletic shoes! This is why idiots should not be allowed to earn so much money!

So much black on white crime (and black on black crime). I guess Heidi realized this relationship was not going to work for the long haul.

forreal - get a life. everyone knows these blonde models all want to try a black man and expereince his big schlong. its the thing to do as a super model. but she soon realized that in the black community, things like violence are normal and socially acceptable. but in white communities, it is not acceptable. so heidi probably realized she didnt want her half-black kids thinking it is OK to beat the crap out of their wives when they get older. its a simple conclusion. get a life and stop thinking the person who posted the comment wasn't just telling what they see as the truth!
