Heidi & Seal: Confirm Split, Was It Because of His Turbulent Temper?

After this weekend's report that Seal and his supermodel wife Heidi Klum were headed to divorce court, the couple has confirmed their separation via a joint statement through their rep.

 

Details inside, plus rumors of Seal's turbulent temper....

7 years of marriage and 4 kids later (with Seal formally adopting Heidi's oldest), the twosome are officially on Splitsville Lane.

The couple's rep put out a statement on behalf of the Hollywood couple, asking for privacy and confirming that the two simply grew apart:

"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 wellbeing 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."

The twosome met while Heidi was pregnant with daughter Leni, whose father is businessman Flavio Briatore.  Heidi has Seal's name tattoo'd on her arm, and they got married in Mexico right after they announced she was pregnant with their first child together, Henry.

Now, folks are trying to figure out where the seemingly perfect couple went wrong. Reports claim Seal has a veracious temper, which Heidi supposedly couldn't take it anymore.  (How convenient news of his alleged "temper" comes out now.)  Her extremely large and successful empire also created physical and emotional distance between the two--with both traveling so much.  Reportedly, infidelity was not the issue.

Time will tell....

Sad this happened, however, I do believe they will be amicable to one another during this process of moving on. I pray they realize it's about the well being of the children. Some "Hollywooders" don't understand that. They're hurt so the kids suffer, let's hope this isn't the case with these two.

I can believe that Seal had a nasty temper. I could never marry a man that looked like SEAL. Heidi Klum is beautiful and more successful than him. I"m glad she is leaving him. Successful beautiful women don't need to stay with abusive men. Heidi can do much better!

Looks do play apart in

Looks do play apart in attraction however seeing beyond the superficial is the reason some women marry and some won't ever. Seal has lupus, the scarring on his face is superficial. Just as Jay Martinez was burned, his looks are superficial. I pray you are 1)beautiful 2) in a committed relationship and 3) never afflicted by an ailment that could impair your looks. And for the record having a temper doesn't make you abusive. Reading and comprehension is fundamental.

Each person can decide for

Each person can decide for themselves what is attractive. Seal is UGLY. PERIOD. And Jay Martinez is a Burn victim and you want to compare him with SEAL? I'm not speaking about just his FACE. You should think before you type. This comment made no sense. I'm in a committed relationship. Seal is not attractive and nothing you say can change that. And people who have trouble controlling their anger tend to be people who are physically abusive.

You must be 12...you must have missed the analogy, you're comment said "I would never date/be with someone who LOOKED like Seal. Therefore implying his looks were a factor. You should think before you type...idiot.

I'm 18 and I know syntax. It's spelled...."YOUR" comment not you're. You're is a CONTRACTION. You ARE....When you know simplistic syntax then you can tell me that MY OPINION about SEAL's "looks" are invalid. SEAL IS UGLY! And I never would date a man that looked like him.

@Anonymous 11:19 There is nothing "stunning" about Seal. He is grotesquely UGLY! Heidi saw something in that man I could never see. And their children together are not attractive. AT ALL. No thanks. Heidi's daughter is a vision. She's adorable.

Wow, how incredibly UGLY and

Wow, how incredibly UGLY and UNKIND are you to say that about innocent children? Why would you even go there? Ok, so YOU don't have to like Seal, you don't need to find him the least bit attractive and you said it best HEIDI saw something in that man, who cares if YOU don't...but DAMN why would you berate and put down children?? That statement was just pure ignorance coming from someone who always tries to come across as being so enlightened, insightful and intelligent.

The KEY word is someone who TRIES to come off intelligent and insightful. This Furious person has the mentality of a 12 y/o. Notice she didn't respond to the "attractive" part of my comment. LOL!

Oh and unsuccessful

Oh and unsuccessful unattracitve women should stay with abusive men (assuming that he is in fact abusive which you nor anyone has concrete evidence to confirm). There is soooo much wrong with your remarks-Seriously think before you type!
Anonymous's picture

I know precisely what I

I know precisely what I typed. HEIDI is more successful than SEAL. She does not have to tolerate his temper. And Heidi is very beautiful. Just a statement of fact. I think you're reading too much into my comment. I stand for the right of women. No woman should stay in an abusive relationship. I'm not implying that unattractive women should tolerate an abusive man. Stop looking for something to complain about. If you felt let out that is not my fault. Maybe you should seek a therapist for your low self esteem issues because you will never fill that void you have on a blog or elsewhere.
Furious Styles's picture

How do you know he has a

How do you know he has a temper?! The fact that you take your cues, concerning the truth, from a gossip site speaks volumes. If I read too much into your comment it certainly was not because of low self-esteem. The amount of emphasis that you put on how wonderful Heidi is and how terrible Seal is, struck a chord. Why the Heidi parade/banner and the Seal boycott/disdain. Maybe you have some deep seeded issues with men from a certain community? Black community maybe?

I loved these two & I'm sad to hear news of their split. The way Heidi was happily popping out babies, I thought they were in it for the long haul. When I hear Seal sing I understand how those babies got here. Dangggg--I hope they reconcile. :-(

I can believe he has a temper. Most african men do have a temper. I'm not on some racist or stereotypical b.s. but it just is what it is. African men tend to be more agressive and strong in their approach which isn't needed at all times. I actually watched Amistad last night for the first time and noticed that even in the movie, when addressing their fellow african counterparts, they were just real forceful and strong with it. I know it's a movie but dang it that's really how a lot of them act in everyday life. All in all the temper allegation doesn't surprise me.

I am a Nigerian-American

I am a Nigerian-American woman, I have uncles, cousins, brothers, friends who are very even tempered and get as upset as the next man if something displeases them. On what do you base your assumptions? Did you do a survey? How many African men have you dated or been friends with to come to that conclusion? Have you ever lived in ANY African country? You might think you were not on some rascist or stereotypical b.s. but you came across as such nonetheless. Amistad was a movie about slaves in a new country, lost and ripped from all that they know and don't forget that there was a screenwriter and director involved in creating the final product you saw on TV or at the theaters so you cannot use that as a basis for how an entire continent of people act. Look at all the murders in this country - white on white, black on black, asian on asian are those not stemming from anger issues?

Was was the point of this? I think it was to MAYBE say something about Seal's ethnicity BUT what you posted clearly states that Seal is African. Nigerian at that. Idris Elba was born and raised in London too...dude is still African so what was the point of your post? Maybe I'm missing something.

I think the post was to enlighten you on his ethnicity and heritage. I agree AFRICAN men tend to be forceful but men of Latin decent, Americans, Caribo-African, etc...have those tendencies too. Seal is 2nd generation African.

Perhaps they'll move on to other marriages/relationships and still remain good friends, like Russell and Kimora? It's good to know when it's time to move on...just sayin'. Looks like this is becoming the year of "I can't do this anymore"!

Notice how when the media

Notice how when the media wanted to make you think Seal worshiped this woman they had nothing but good things to say about him. Now that a divorce looms, he is said to have a violent temper. This is similar to Diddy reportedly being controlling of Cameron Diaz. Id dumb black men had any sense they would see the tricks being played on them, but alas, as long as their is a white woman involved they will keep their blinders on, even while they are being slandered.
