No! No! No! Well, I’m just devastated. Weekend reports were saying that super couple Heidi Klum and Seal were heading for divorce, but I didn’t want to believe it. Now, I guess I have to. They released this joint statement Monday morning: “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.”
Gosh darn it. Klum, 38, and Seal, 48, were married in Mexico in 2005, and held vow renewal ceremonies each year. I loved watching them on Halloween because they always showed up in crazy costumes. When he sang to her on the Victoria Secret fashion show while she strutted in her underwear was beautiful. This was a Hollywood couple that I really held out hope for. What could have gone wrong from them to “grow apart?”
The couple has three biological children – Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. Klum also has seven-year old daughter Leni from a previous relationship, whom Seal adopted in 2009.
