Nooo! We were sure that rumors of Heidi Klum and Seal getting a divorce were some absurd news report and that the successful celebrity couple were laughing it off. But when the no-longer-happy duo released an official statement to People over the weekend, we had to accept that there was no hope left.
This is the couple who renews their vows on every wedding anniversary! Wearing Bo Derek braids and a mullet! Who throw Halloween parties that turn away celebrity guests for not being as carefree and confident as them in dressing up. Every detail of their story sounds like a fairytale, like when Seal was willing to marry Heidi even though she was pregnant with another man’s baby.
However, something happened to cause them to grow apart, as they explain in their official statement:
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.
I hate to cheapen this with overspeculation, but I’m so curious as to what the reason could be, seeing as we never heard about their problems. Any potential reason for divorce is just rumor, but TMZ claims that Heidi will be the one to file divorce papers because Seal was unable to control his anger issues. More realistically, Hollywood Life says the two grew apart because of Seal starting an international tour and guest judge spot on The Voice while Heidi stayed at home with the kids.
