This celebrity divorce seems like it’s coming right out of left field, especially since this high profile couple is known for renewing their vows in a glamorous ceremony every year.
Over the weekend, reports surfaced that supermodel Heidi Klum is separating from her husband, R&B singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Seal[/lastfm], and will file for divorce after nearly seven years of marriage.
In the public eye, Klum and Seal’s marriage seemed unshakable, but sources close to the couple say the reason behind Klum’s sudden decision to separate is in large part because of Seal’s temper.
There are no signs of infidelity, but Klum is just no longer able to deal with Seal’s inability to control his anger, especially if it’s affecting their children. The couple is parents to four children, the oldest from Klum’s previous relationship, Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
The couple has released a statement following news of their separation, saying:
“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.”
Sources close to the couple also state that this decision was “a long time in coming,” and Klum was even spotted at last week’s Golden Globes solo.
