Heidi Klum & Seal haven’t split yet, they’re trying to work through their issues

As CB discussed yesterday, Heidi Klum and Seal might be close to divorce, according to a report on TMZ. Since TMZ released the shocking news – that Heidi WILL file for divorce shortly – other media outlets have been playing catch-up, trying to get a statement from either Heidi or Seal. So far, “unnamed sources” are the only ones talking. First up, Us Weekly:

On Saturday, TMZ reported that Heidi Klum and Seal were heading for a divorce, and that Klum would be filing the papers citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. But Us Weekly has learned, exclusively, that the supermodel, 38, and her husband of six years, 48, are still together — for now.

“Nothing is finalized or for sure. Seal flew back from the UK yesterday and he and Heidi are in the house together now,” friend close to the couple tells Us. “They’ve had a very rough road lately. They’re either madly in love or having crazy fights.”

The friend goes on to say that the couple’s recent trip to Aspen was full of tension, adding “they fought a lot. It was a very hard trip.”

Seal, who’s famous for his 1994 single “Kiss from a Rose” is set to spend the next month in Australia, where he will serve as a coach on the Aussie leg of the vocal competition show The Voice, alongside Joel Madden.

“It’s been very hard. but there is a lot of love there, and any decision that will be made is a tough one because they have beautiful children who they both love very deeply,” the friend says.

The couple has three biological children, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2, plus Klum’s 7-year-old daughter from her previous marriage, Leni, whom Seal adopted in 2009.

People Magazine’s source has the same idea – the source says: “They’ve been fighting a lot lately, but they have no plans to announce a split right now. They’re not divorcing.” While Seal has been away from LA, their relationship struggled, but now that he’s back at their Brentwood house, the source says “they seem to be doing a lot better… They’re both wearing their wedding bands.”

So what could have caused all of the rumors and reports of a split? The Mail claims that Heidi wasn’t pleased with Seal’s recent partying ways:

New claims have emerged that Heidi Klum is divorcing her husband Seal because of his hard partying. Hollywood’s golden couple and their management are still yet to comment on yesterday’s reports of a split, but a source has said their relationship was in trouble because the singer was ‘off the rails’.

The tension is believed to have started when the pair holidayed with their three children, and Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship, in Ibiza in August.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: ‘They were always the couple everybody strived to be but lately it all started to change. Seal seems to have been partying a lot more often than usual. When they had their holiday in Ibiza last summer, Seal hit it hard, was out at clubs and with his friends a lot and Heidi was left with their kids trying to enjoy herself. The cracks were appearing and everybody was talking during that trip. He seemed off the rails.’

The insider added: ‘They’ve spent a lot of time apart too on work assignments and that hasn’t helped matters. Then when Seal came back to the UK to do promotional work for his next album, he seemed sleepy and not with it on shows like Loose Women, when he was very late for his appearance.’

German-born Heidi, 38, is reportedly expected to file papers at Los Angeles’ County Superior Court this week citing irreconcilable differences between the pair who married at Seal’s beachfront home in Mexico in 2005. A spokesman for the former Victoria’s Secret model yesterday said a statement was being prepared which would be released imminently.

A spokesman for Seal, 48 – real name Seal Henry Samuel – did not return calls but a cryptic message posted on the singer’s Twitter page on Friday read: ‘The End.’ The message was attached to a picture that appeared to show the star’s forearm bearing an imprint of a set of wings – a possible reference to Miss Klum’s role as a Victoria’s Secret winged ‘Angel’ model.

The split paves the way for a multi-million-pound divorce battle between the golden couple. They have three children together – Henry, six, Johan, five, and Lou, two – as well as Miss Klum’s daughter Leni, seven, from a previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. Heidi, one of the world’s most in-demand models, is reported to have earned more than £12 million in the past year alone.

Seal, who is best known for his Kiss From A Rose single, has sold more than 20 million albums and won three Brit Awards and three Grammys in a career spanning 20 years. The couple own a home in Mexico and an £8.4 million mansion in Los Angeles.

[From The Mail]

Here’s what I think happened/is happening: I think Heidi, for whatever reason, had enough and was speaking to lawyers and she gave Seal an ultimatum. The ultimatum was probably something like, “Stop partying so much, stop traveling so much, spend more time with the family.” And it looks like Seal is trying to meet her ultimatum, I think. Out of all celebrity couples who claim that they’re “working things out,” I actually believe it with Seal and Heidi. I think she was probably trying to give him a wake up call, and it might have worked. I do hope they work out, if just for the sake of all of those babies.

    I hope they work things out, too. They have a beautiful family worth fighting for and keeping together.

  2. Jessica says:

    I find this SO offensive:

    ” the pair holidayed with their three children, and Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship”

    Seal adopted her. That is HIS child. Period. It should say “their four children.”

    So often you see the statement about so and so’s “adopted daughter/son.” The manner in which they came to be someone’s child is irrelevant, and pointing out that they are adopted every time they are mentioned is saying they are less than a biological child, or that they aren’t *really* their child. I was adopted (by my dad) and I have never ever in my LIFE been referred to as his adopted daughter. He adopted me. I’m his daughter, just as much as if we were blood related. The point of adoption is to make that child your own just as if you had been a birth parent. Once a child is adopted there is no difference between biological child and adopted child. It’s all the same.

    I wonder how it makes these celeb kids feel to always be designated as someone’s adopted child rather than simply as their child? Probably pretty shitty.

    /rant. That said, I hope they work it out. I don’t generally care about celeb couples, but reading that these two were divorcing made me go, “aw, that really stinks.”

    • ThirdChris says:

      I completely agree with you. That’s such BS and so offensive.

    • Janel says:

      I totally agree with you! Very well stated. I think the very same thing every time I read an ignorant comment about children that were adopted. The key word is “were”. They were adopted. It happened one time. It is incorrect to state someone “is” adopted.

    • Mika says:

      I was about to have this same rant. SO OFFENSIVE.

    • Kathy says:

      This is the same reason I get (internally) pretty pissed when someone misuses “biological” vs. “real”. There are several adoptions in my family and whoever raises you and loves you is your “real” parent IMO.

      However, I realize that sometimes people mean no harm and misuse the words accidentally, so I try to keep that in mind if they say it in front of me. People have different perspectives and I try to respect that. I understand if I say something wrong and someone corrects me, too.

      I agree with Janel about were/is.

      Why do we need to keep bringing up that they’re adopted anyway? As long as he honors his role as her father for the rest of his and her life (regardless of whether the marriage works out or not), that’s all that matters.

      Sorry, I’m not trying to be bitchy, honestly. I hope it didn’t come off that way. There are so many different ways to make a fmaily and I realize people can’t walk on eggshells at all times about what they say.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      I completely agree and was going to post that. Seal is Leni’s father; stop separating her from her brothers and sister. I truly hope these two can work things out. Part of the issue is that they have been having kids throughout their early days and now that they’re done having kids, they have to face each other. I really hope they work things out, for the kids and each other. They always seemed to have a good chemistry and lots of fun. Marriage isn’t a wedding- it’s a life together and a commitment to take seriously. I’m not saying stay together no matter what, but I do feel people throw in the towel too quickly and too easily these days.

    • Samigirl says:

      I agree 100%. I am adopted, and my father never once has called me his “adoptive” daughter. I am his, plain and simple,

      • LeeLoo says:

        Same here. Not only that but the media needs to be very careful about this because it is possible that her parents may not have wanted to explain the situation until she was older. The media needs to be sensitive to these sorts of family matters.

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      That makes me mad too. In my family there weren’t a lot of adoptions, but whenever you married in, they were apart of the family…there was no “step parents”, just parents. My cousin’s dad (his mom’s first husband) isn’t even his real dad, but he calls him dad, my dad isn’t even my real dad, but I call him dad. It isn’t the fact that you supplied the sperm, that makes you a dad.

    • Heebeegeebee says:

      I remember a women telling me a story. She was adopted and her sister was the biological child of their parents. If someone asked their father which girl was adopted, he would reply “I forget.” I imagine Seal would feel the same way. He was there for the BIRTH of ALL of their kids, for heaven’s sake.

    • Anne de Vries says:

      I was just going to post that… really pisses me off.

    • Maya says:

      It goes without saying, it’s definitely offensive and indicative of the types of intellects that work in such magazines. But the other idiotic reason for that ‘adopted’ reference may also involve more stupid stories. They’re probably concocting some story involving Briatore as well now, just to shift copy.

    • Meanchick says:

      I’m with you on that one too Jessica! Leni is HIS daughter too! He adopted her! Why make it a point to say/write that? That is disgusting!

    • Ana says:

      You beat me to it! ;)

      I totally agree, if he adopted her is HIS child, not: “Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship”! They should have said “with their four children”, or just “with their children”.

    • Mia says:

      This. It always bothers me whenever they write about Isabella and Connor as adopted children of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, while of course Suri, Sunday and the other little one (can’t remember her name) get to just “be” the children of Tom and Nicole,respectively with their separate partners.

  3. Forever says:

    He looked after you when you were pregnant with another mans child. Not many men would do that.

    • WillyNilly says:

      Yes, but that doesn’t give him a pass to do whatever he wants.

    • Happymom says:

      Right-but how much would you tolerate if he was out partying all the time, starting to behave erratically? I’m guessing she’s trying to get through to him that he needs to pull it together for the sake of their family.

    • Ida says:

      He didn’t do her a favour, which is what you’re making it sound like. I’m pretty certain she had all the resources to take care of herself. In any case, apparently they met when she was well into her pregnancy.

    • dai says:

      And, she married him with that face he has. Not too many women would do that. Point? I don’t understand how that somehow gives him a pass to do whatever while she has to stay some faithful, loyal, submissive wife from the 50s. He never really seems to be with them as a family. Hundreds of pictures will hit the net a month of Heidi with the kids and Seal will be with them once, if that. Nobody can put up with that for too long. What is the point of being married or in a relationship if you are alone?

      • missy says:

        I see pics of Seal with the kids on a regular basis. There are tons of pics of him taking the kids to ballet, karate, ice cream etc. Not to mention the fact that it’s possible the paps follow Heidi more, because she sells more than Seal. Sure, Seal travels a lot, but so does Heidi.
        Don’t get me wrong…I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out Seal did do something wrong. I just don’t get why people are making him out to be a bad father who is never with his family, when I don’t think that’s the case.

      • Alaina says:

        @Dai – “She married him with that face he has…”

        What a horribly shallow and offensive comment. I’ll be generous and assume you don’t know the history of his scars and the depression he went through before coming to terms with them.

        http://www.helium.com/items/1794188-what-are-the-scars-on-singer-seals-face

        As I recall, her first impression of him was how fit he was. Which he is. Which speaks volumes about Heidi and the person she is.

        Hope they sort things out.

      • Shannon says:

        Alaina, how is it any more offensive than implying that Heidi should play the permissive wife for the rest of her life just because Seal met her and “took care of her” when she was pregnant with someone else’s child (out of wedlock – the horror)? That was the whole point of Dai’s comparison, which apparently went over your head; both are ridiculous things to say.

      • Alaina says:

        @Shannon

        ??? Where the hell are you getting that from?? I commented ONLY on the remark about his appearance. Why are you putting words into my mouth that I neither said not would even consider saying?? If he’s been playing away or neglecting her/the kids (remembering btw that none of this is fact, just speculation), of course my sympathy is 100% with her and hope she does whatever she feels is right for her. How you managed to interpret a defence of his physical appearance as a negative about Heidi is beyond me.

        Really annoying when people put their own spin on someone’s else’s comment.

      • Shannon says:

        Because the ORIGINAL comment that Dai was replying to was Forever’s statement that “He looked after you when you were pregnant with another mans child. Not many men would do that. ”

        So Dai responded “And, she married him with that face he has. Not too many women would do that. Point?”

        How am I putting my “own spin” on your comment? You attacked Dai without taking into account the context of her comment, which was that Seal marrying her when she was pregnant is as irrelevant as her marrying him when he had significant facial scarring. She wasn’t just making a comment about his appearance out of the blue, which you still don’t seem to understand.

      • Meanchick says:

        Dai, What does his face have to do with with their marriage problems? That is a shallow and nasty remark. We all have imperfections and I’m sure you’d hate it if someone pointed out yours online. *Side note* I think he’s handsome and the scars make him even more handsome!

  4. Rita says:

    Sometimes it takes a catharsis to bring a situation to the precipice where one has to decide what they will or will not commit to in life but more often than not, the committment is only long enough to pull back from the fall, and then things go to hell.

    If they don’t jump now, they probably will within a year.

    @brin- looking as lovely as ever this morning *tinkles* *I mean twinkles*

  5. Tazina says:

    Seal toured a lot in 2011 and more coming up this year. Even though Heidi has nannies, etc., the kids are ultimately her responsibility. That’s putting some stress on the marriage with her also working so many hours. Yes, the money helps but in the end, both parents still need to be there. I think they will work it out.

  6. Julia says:

    “The tension is believed to have started when the pair holidayed with their three children, and Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship, in Ibiza in August.”
    ======================================
    Why is the media constantly do that ?

    The FOUR children are both Heidi’s and Seal’s regardless of blood . Seal is her father, the one who was there when she was born, the one who raised her from day one, the one who sang her lullabies when she wasd still in her mum’s womb and the one who officially adopted her.

    Briatore never even recognized her !

  7. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    It is too bad that the media is so crass in writing about adopted kids – Seal adopted Leni and is raising her, she is his daughter. Also hope they work it out, and, though I’m not a fan of the song kiss from a rose ’cause I heard it too many times in retail, I like these two together.

  8. birdie says:

    Yup, that’s true. He did something great and raised Leni like his own child, but that does not mean, that he can do whatever he wants to do! I really hope they work things out and I kinda believe that Heidi herself leaked the divorce story to wake up Seal!

  9. Kimlee says:

    How really hope they work it out for themselves and their kids.

  10. Theuth says:

    I hope they’ll be able to get through all of this, but I can’t like Heidi Klum. Not with what happened with Briatore.

    • GeekLuva says:

      Could you please elaborate? I always thought it was that Bratori guy that was the ass?

      • Theuth says:

        Briatore had an history of being basically a pimp for women in entertainment show (in Italy) and models (most famous, Naomi Campbell) for a VERY LONG time – still has up until a few years ago when he basically married one of those “soubrette” implicated in a huge sex scandal (similar to the Ruby-gate of Berlusconi) in order to breed and have a male heir.
        When Heidi got pregnant, she went on a magazine announcing to the world he basically was changed for her, and pratically THE SAME DAY another magazine published photos of Briatore on his yatch, naked, surrounded by women, partying.
        Yes, he was an ass, but I seriously despise ANY woman who got anywhere near him, knowing the kind of pig he is – and she was stupid enough to get pregnant? No, she doesn’t get a pass for me.
        I also think she got married with Seal so quickly in order to make everybody forget about this thing, I’ve never imagined they would be able to make it work for so long.

    • Maya says:

      But isn’t that standard for models? Models tend to be put with wealthy sleazebags, the agencies facilitate that process and there are many models who have taken advantage of that process. How else did the ‘supermodels’ of the Nineties become supermodels? They ‘associated’ with the right crowd, slept with the right men and their careers rose. I remember from that time (late 80s/90s) there was the scandal involving model agent John Casablancas and Stephanie Seymour. It goes on.
      The modelling industry has its predators. Briatore is one of them.

      • Theuth says:

        How many of them got pregnant, though? As I explained in another response, I despise Heidi Klum because she knew what kind of spleazy man he was, eventually told the world her vag was some kind of panacea able to cure his hunger and got kicked out when he was seen deep in other females. Briatore is one of the most disgusting and misoginist piece of s**t – and EVERYBODY knows it, hell – every woman who purposelly decide to associate, be photographed and seen with him isn’t even better than him.
        Plus, she wasn’t some young and unexperienced model – she was 30 years old and already had a solid career when she was with Briatore. And he was well in his 50s.
        I don’t know much Seal, or their relationship, but I suspect that at the beginning, Heidi got with him fast because her pride was pretty much destroyed after the Briatore scandal – what better way to show the world how sexy you are than marrying a man who got with you when you were pregnant with a child from another one who trash you away?
        That’s my 2 cent on the subject.

  11. meme says:

    I hope they work through the rough patch because I think they are a special couple. Also it would be nice to see a family stay together.

  12. mln76 says:

    Seal also ominously tweeted ‘The End’ on
    Friday BEFORE these reports. I think if there nothing to these reports these two are so public they would just put out an outright denial. My thoughts Seal may have cheated Heidi probably had a shit-fit blew up @ him called lawyers etc but when it came down to the wire had a change of heart and they are now ‘working on it’. I guess time will tell.

  13. Marco P says:

    I bet Heidi is freaking a bit over Angela on PR Allstars. Angela isn’t quite as good as Heidi, but Angela is a fresh face and maybe makes her feel old….

  14. Ann says:

    What kind of a moron is Seal? You have four kids and you go out “partying” with your friends? You’re 50, get a grip, you idiot!

  15. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    So Seal isn’t allowed to party while he’s on vacation and he shouldn’t tour although he’s a singer. Find the error.

    And don’t tell me Heidi is left with the kids “alone”. She has nannies and she always drags her parents along. Maybe he needs a bit of a break from that, marriage is no prison and she knew what she was gettin herself into when she married a singer.

  16. Eleonor says:

    Isn’t he nearly the same age as Johnny Deep? Mid life crisis here too?

  17. CG says:

    Usually I don’t really care when celebrity couples split, but this actually makes me sad. I hope these two can work it out.

  18. Ogechi says:

    @Ann, how did you get your information? and why must you call Seal names over an unconfirmed reports? Seal is a wonderful husband and father- stop cursing.

  19. I RUN NEW YORK says:

    WTF? A 50 year old partying. Does he have a screw loose or something?

  20. Moreaces says:

    This one really is a surprise,, hope they can work it out, they seem to be a good match

  21. d says:

    Guy his age, partying a lot, late for appointments, not spending time with his family? Mid-life crisis.

  22. Charlotte says:

    NO, NO, NO! They are the only couple that I ever believed really love each other! Argh!

  23. Jayna says:

    Stop traveling so much? It’s his livelihood. He’s a singer and tours. He tours less than others. Should he sit home and be Mr. Heidi Klum? Heidi leaves their California home to film her New York TV show. Heidi flies to Germany to film her Tv show part of the year and flies there a lot for her business ventures in Germany. Heidi is
    producing a new children’s show. Heidi has a
    casual wear fashion line. Heidi has a beauty line. Heidi is wealthy. How about giving up the Germany TV show, Heidi, and spend some
    downtime supporting your husband on tour. Something has to give. You guys have four little ones. Work it out. And yes, they have four. Stop saying three from Seal.

    • Gast says:

      Yes, Heidi is filming a show for German TV – BUT they shoot a lot in L.A.
      They flew to California quite early in the last season of GNTM. And she was barely on screen – as far as I can remember.
      I could imagine, that Seal might have a problem with the success of his wife. I guess, he gets a LOT of questions about Heidi – even when the interview is about him and his music. A couple of years ago there was a report, that a fan asked Seal something about Heidi during one of his concerts… And Seal wasn’t very pleased (of course not!). It’s even written in the article above: Seal is most famous for a song from 1994 and his marriage to Heidi. He is a great singer and he is still successful (I guess) but not as much as he used to be. So, yeah I believe in the midlife crisis theory and add some male ego damage.

      • Jayna says:

        I love his 2004 Seal IV and 2007 System the best and he had some popular songs from those like Love’s Divine and Amazing. His 2008 Soul album of remakes sold well. He has a great catalogue of recognizable songs other than the Kiss song and his concerts are sellouts in Europe and South America.

  24. lrm says:

    i still can’t believe she had 4 kids in 5 years, in her 30′s….and people are saying her butt is saggy in that other post with the swimsuit?
    OMG. she looks quite good to me. Sure, she has help and money so she could do better-i’m sure it ebbs and flows.
    She looks like a person who enjoying ‘having a life!’ instead of spending her time obsessing about food and excercise. Pretty surprising for a former model, really. But great, since she is a role model for her children and she focuses on being a businesswoman first.

    By no means does she look bad or unhealthy, at least.

    And marriage stress can make you less into taking care of yourself…..

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      I agree, I think it’s just a bad swimsuit actually, it’s not flattering on her and wouldn’t be on anyone. Also she could work out for about a week and be right back in top shape, she hit the gene pool lottery. It’s not fun to constantly work on your body, she does it when she needs to for her VS job, but at other times I’m sure she likes to take time away from a schedule that’s just grueling. I watched an interview she did once where she showed what she did to train for the VS shows, it was insane!

  25. sasha says:

    What is up with women doing this crap, trying to rein in the man that you’ve put a leash on by ‘threatening’ divorce? The guy needs some air and space, then he will be back better than ever. If you don’t allow him some freedom he will become resentful and this situation will get worse. If you love something set it free….right?

  26. Vanden says:

    I’m glad they’re trying to work things out. I thought that was what you were supposed to do first when you’re married

  27. islandgirl says:

    Weirdest thing, looking at these photos, realised something I never did before – their faces are really alike. Even though the obvious major difference may initially obscure it, it’s especially obvious in the 3rd photo…random I knwo. Love these two as a couple and really hope they work it out.

  28. Madison says:

    This is so typical of hollywood celebrity couples, first come the rumors then come the denials and finally comes the split.

  29. Tiffany says:

    I want these two to go the distance. From what was released they are having issues. These issues do not seem like dealbreakers (physical/alcohol/drug abuse, adultery). Sit down, talk, schedule and test it out. Go Team Samuels.

  30. skuddles says:

    Hmmm, Seal seemed “sleepy” and “out of it”… partying hard… off the rails? Sounds like they’re implying he’s got a drug problem here. And maybe a little difficulty keeping the trouser snake under control. Hope they work it out in any case.

  31. Jayna says:

    Seal is one of my top three performers and singer/songwriters of all time, and Heidi is such a delight. I love her. I hope they work it out. His fans say being so in love killed his best work because his 2011 album Committment was so happy and a little generic, that he had lost his edge. But his lowest-selling album came in 2007 during his marriage and yet it is in my top two favs of all his albums. “System” is unbelievable as a high-energy album.

    Seal is an amazing performer and so sexy on stage (the guy can move) because his music is sexy. The road must have temptations.

    2011 live “Loaded” – This song I always thought he wrote about Heidi from System: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CFONK7HMvo&feature=related

  32. Shannon says:

    Really sad to see them having problems, but at least they take marriage seriously, unlike some celebs.

  33. Sara says:

    They are really never together.

    If you look at their twitter accounts, he seems to always be off in Europe or something. It seems they are rarely in the same place.

  34. Maritza says:

    They have 4 children, there is no need to point out that Leni is adopted, Seal is her dad period. I do hope they patch things up, they are such a lovely family.

  35. Jennifer12 says:

    So sick of reports that have to separate Leni from the other kids. It’s one thing if her biological father is involved, but he never has been and Leni was adopted by Seal. They have 4 kids together. I hope and pray they work through their problems. Marriage is the hardest thing ever, and giving up without giving it your all is ridiculous. When you commit to have four kids with someone, you need to think before you divorce or even threaten it. Counseling? Did they try it? I’m not saying stay no matter what, but you have to exhaust all avenues first. How could they do so when she’s been pregnant throughout most of their time together? Now they need to learn to be a couple and not expectant parents. Life is not endless parties and wedding renewals and new babies. I always thought they had fun, but it also looks like they were always trying to have an endless party going or the next thing happening. Sometimes it’s just being married and having kids and not having to constantly be ON, ON, ON.

  36. Maya says:

    It annoys me when celebrities take to Twitter before resolving their own shit.

  37. TG says:

    I never realized how much Heidi and Seal look alike. I suppose the longer a couple is together and the more in love they are they start to resemble one another.

  38. mollie says:

    Are they divorcing because of the god-awful horrible dress she is wearing in that last photo? Wow.

    Heidi is that bitch and Seal is that dude. I hope this is all just exaggerated nonsense. I believe they have problems like most celebrities constantly on the road or doing this, that, or the other but I believe they really care for one another.

    Heidi has an amazing body since she was basically pregnant for the last five years. She looks better than the majority of us posting so the haterade can stop there. Seal is gorgeous. His face, his skin, his body is sick. His scars make him beautiful in a way. And he can sing. I own everything he has.

    I am really rooting for these two.

    Sadly, they ARE splitting up. They have announced that they are separating. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20563766,00.html

    I also get annoyed and upset when I see Isabella and Connor ALWAYS described as “adopted” kids. Why? Look at how old they are so why is that description still always in every article about them? It’s offensive. The press does the same thing with Hugh Jackman’s kids. The adoptive parents should speak out against this offensive practice.

    In an exclusive 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 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.”

    They are separating. Look at Klum’s statement:

    So . . . were most of the articles about their romantic relationship just b.s. – for publicity? Was the love real? Maybe not. Maybe so. Perhaps Seal was around a great deal previously, but now, like a housewife home for too long, wants to accelerate his career – and Heidi wants the freedom to do what she wants, still. Perhaps it is petulance on her part – at Seal wanting to evolve in a new direction. Unfortunately, too much evolving can mean too much time out drinking, etc., with that whole scenario exacerbating the situation. If they really do love each other, they will fight to find a way back to closeness and a true family for their kids. Hopefully, the latter scenario will win out with a chasm between them not too wide to cross. It seems only a while ago I read about the true love they have, their relationship, love, etc. Was that b.s.? Perhaps trying to live up to their own hype was too much.

    I like Seal, think he is very sexy. Heidi is a hard working woman & gorgeous. Why have four children then get divorced? I believe they still love eachother, and will work through their problems.

  46. Jayna says:

    They have announced they have split.

  47. Jayna says:

    TMZ has said it’s his temper and her business empire growing and him getting ready to embark on an international tour.

    Lordy, lordy. Imagine trying to work something like this out with your spouse, while under the microscope of public opinion. I know that there are many reasons celebrity marriages fail so often – long separations, giant egos, close contact with other attractive/sexy people – but also, they often don’t get *ANY* privacy when the need it the most.
