Seal is speaking out ... about speaking out about his divorce.

The reason he's been so forthcoming about his recent split with Heidi Klum, according to the singer, is to promote his upcoming tour because we deserve to know.

He's generous, that Seal.

"When you publicize your marriage as much as ours was, when you renew wedding vows, all those things ... you're painting a picture of an ideal relationship that people aspire to," he said on the Australian radio show Fifi and Jules.

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

"It doesn't really work like that. I certainly respect my wife's decision not to talk about that, but I felt that people at least deserved some kind of explanation why that picture of the ideal relationship wasn't what they thought it was."

Seal really went above and beyond full disclosure, though.

While the recently-separated Seal and Heidi Klum originally hoped to reconcile, a reunion might not be in their future after all, according to those close to the couple.

"They had both been wearing their wedding rings and had mutually thought they might be able to work it out," one source says of the pair, who got married in '05.

"But it doesn't look like it's going that way."

In fact, less than a month after the couple confirmed they were separating after nearly seven years of marriage, Seal was spotted sans wedding ring last week.

That's a contrast from his earlier sentiment that he had "no intention of taking [his ring] off anytime soon." Klum has been spotted out without her ring as well.

The couple also spent Valentine's Day in different countries, as Seal worked in Australia, while Klum, 38, kept close company with her friends in Los Angeles.

There have been reports that Seal pushed Heidi Klum in a pre-divorce fight, but the pair has not elaborated on the reasons for their surprising breakup.

Nor will they. In fact, it looks like she's already moving on as a single mom.

Seal's split from Heidi Klum was one of the most shocking celebrity divorces in recent memory, but the parting of ways appeared to have been scandal-free.

Or was it? A new tabloid report suggests that may not be the case.

According to an alleged family insider, the couple, who married in May 2005, got into a full-blown screaming match at their L.A. home in mid-January.

A screaming match that led to even worse.

"Heidi told friends that Seal just lost it," the insider said, according to Radar and Star. "He was screaming - and, she said, he pushed her. It was horrible."

The encounter escalated to the point that Heidi's security guard had to intervene, reports say. "He had to physically restrain Seal," the source adds.

While Seal's temper has been widely rumored as a cause of the breakup, it's not clear if this fight or any other incidents pushed Heidi over the edge.

Publicly, at least, the pair insists the separation is mutual and amicable, and Seal even said on Ellen that a reconciliation may happen down the line.

Heidi Klum has broken her silence since she and Seal announced their separation last week, Tweeting thanks to her supporters in the wake of her surprise split.

The supermodel who hadn't Tweeted since January 15, acknowledged those who've helped her so far through the split from her husband of over six years.

"Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words," Klum wrote. "[It] really means so much. Thanks again to the best fans in the world! xoHeidi"

Klum and Seal

Seal, meanwhile, has given several interviews, and has described how he and Klum broke the news of their split to their children, while promoting his new album.

The singer also recently said on CNN that a reconciliation may happen.

Klum and Seal decided to part ways "after much soul-searching," they said in a statement. "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and we will continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart."

A holiday trip in December was said to be the final straw for the couple.

Hell is a strong word, but that's what Us chooses to describe Heidi Klum's marriage to Seal, which is coming to an end after nearly seven years of bliss together.

While reconciliation is still on the table, and the couple is still wearing their wedding rings, the tabloid tells a dramatically different story regarding the duo.

One focused on Seal's temper, apparently.

While jealousy over Heidi's career was reportedly a source of friction between the two, as well as the time they spent apart, "vicious fights" may be a stretch.

Clearly, things weren't perfect, otherwise they'd still be together, but that doesn't mean their split has to be this shocking, violent, combative affair, does it?

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

"This is an amicable process and while we have had the deepest respect for one another and continue to love each other very much, we have grown apart."

Could it be that's actually true? And that while it was certainly the most shocking celebrity divorce of the year, it isn't a contentious or scandalous battle?

Sure, but that doesn't sell magazines, right Us?

Of all the celebrity breakups of late, theirs was the most shocking. But is there a chance that Seal and Heidi Klum will call off their divorce and give it another go?

Despite the very real "problems" behind their separation, which they confirmed Monday, Heidi Klum and Seal still don't rule out the possibility of getting back together.

Not just because they're still wearing their wedding rings, either (they are).

"It may happen, I can't speak for her," Seal told Piers Morgan. "Is it irreparable? You can never say never. The thing I love most about us is that we are a team."

"That won't change, whether we get back together or not."

Heidi and Seal

"I don't know at this point, to be honest [if I want to reconcile]. If it were that easy – if there weren't problems, we'd still be together. That is the reality," Seal said.

One thing is certain; he still has feelings for Heidi Klum.

"My love for her has not waned, not one iota," he says. "I love her with all my heart. How can you not love somebody [who] you've spent eight years with?"

He shot down "malicious" rumors that he's "wearing his ring for show," saying, "I'm still wearing my wedding ring because I'm still married to this incredible woman."

"What this means to me and what it stands for [is] respect," he continues. "It stands for loyalty, it stands for incredible memories, and for these four little miracles – and Heidi, making five – that have come into my life."

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

Mere hours after Heidi Klum and Seal confirmed their divorce, interviews between Seal and Ellen DeGeneres (airing today) and PBS' Tavis Smiley (Friday) hit the web.

The topic of his separation was not off the table. Not even close.

About to embark on a new album tour, Seal is more than willing to openly speak about what shocked us - and himself, apparently. "I think we were shocked," he said.

"You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say 'I do' and you say ''Till death do us part.' Those vows hold value," the singer told Ellen.

"They are not just words. These things happen. We pretty much said how we feel and made it clear in the release statement."

"But, for intents and purposes of this show, you just grow apart after awhile. You try and you work through it and the thing that you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent is you do the best that you can."

"It makes you actually appreciate your parents a lot more."

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?

Yesterday, reports surfaced that Heidi Klum and Seal split and are headed for divorce court, with an official filing to come as soon as Monday morning.

No separation has occurred, however, and now, a new report suggests reports of the marriage's demise may be premature and they're not divorcing ... yet.

"They've been fighting a lot and it's been rough lately, but they have no plans to announce a split right now," a source tells People. "They're not divorcing."

Seal, Heidi Klum

According to the insider, in recent months, increased distance and time apart has tested the famously affectionate pair, who have four young children together.

On tour to promote his new album, Soul 2, Seal recently flew solo to NYC to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, then to London for commitments.

Back together at their Brentwood, Calif., home on Saturday, "they seem to be doing a lot better," the source adds. "They're both wearing their wedding bands."

The long distance strains are likely to continue, though.

Seal is due to appear this week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Tavis Smiley, all of which tape in and around Los Angeles.

Klum, meanwhile is expected to travel to Germany soon to promote the seventh season of Germany's Next Top Model, which premieres February 23.
