The couple released the following joint 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.”
TMZ reports that there was no issue of infidelity whatsoever, it came down to the fact that she could not handle his volcanic temper anymore. Seal’s inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, and has been affecting their children.
TMZ has learned this was not a snap decision. As one source said, “It was a long time in coming.”
Klum married the Brit in 2005 and they have three children together – daughter Lou and sons Henry and Johan. Seal also adopted Klum’s eldest daughter Leni from a previous relationship.
