Confirmed: Heidi Klum & Seal Are Dunzo!


Ugh … the news that we’ve been dreading to hear has finally been confirmed as true. Heidi Klum and Seal have announced officially that they are separating after 7 years of marriage together. We first heard Saturday that Heidi was planning to file for divorce sometime this week … and despite the small hope that the break-up report was premature, Heidi and Seal have issued an official statement confirming the sad news that their marriage is dunzo. Blah :( Read on to find out what the couple has to say about the end of their marriage.

“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.”

UGH … this is so sad! Heidi and Seal were married back in 2005 and they have gotten remarried every year since on their anniversary. I am completely shocked that their love couldn’t stand the test of time. Just last October, the couple threw their annual Hallowe’en party together and, as usual, they looked as happy and in love as ever. I suppose if there is any lingering hope to hold on to, it’s that the couple have chosen to use the world “separate” rather than “divorce” in this official statement. But the fact that they reveal that they have “grown apart” is pretty telling … I mean, we just can’t be surprised if Heidi really does decide to file for divorce. This is really sad news, y’all. I love Heidi and Seal together … blah! I feel so bad their their beautiful children … divorce can be really tough on young children. Man … I was really, really, REALLY hoping this divorce rumor was just that … a rumor. This official confirmation is just … really sad :(

    Ugh, you are right, that is just depressing, and very final sounding. I’m sorry to hear it, especially for their children!

  • Ama

    That is sad news-but I do respect them for how they handled it. Unlike most celebrity couples breaking up I believe Seal and Heidi will keep their relationship civil, that there won’t be any drama. Which would be good, not only for them but also for their children.

    One never knows what life can bring-people can grow apart even if they, at some point, seemed as close as two people could get. It happens, but it’s good to handle it as they are. Who knows-maybe in the future they will once again come together-Even if they don’t I wish them and their family the best of luck.

    Maybe, just maybe, the break will draw them closer and they will get back together. A separation often leads to a divorce, but not always. I thought that’s what separations were for. A chance to step back and assess the relationship.

    • Abby

      It worked for P!nk and her husband

    • ChristineLA

      It didn’t work for David Arquette and Courteney Cox, though. I really thought if a trial separation was going to work for anyone, it would be those two, but sadly it did not.

  • ClaireMichelle

    Noooooooooo. No. :'( So bummed over this. I really wanted this to be nothing more than a rumor. I just love them together. Sad.

  • s

    I hate the seven year itch… if only you can see through it, then the wonderland will truly open up

  • AmandaMarie

    Ugh, wow. My heart aches a little (a lot). They are/were definitely one of my fave celeb couples to watch. Hoping this separation is a rare case of “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and not headed to divorce.

  • Amarie

    This makes me so so sad. You can always see the love radiate between these two. I really didn’t want to believe the rumors! Just reading the statement they released made me so sad :( it was beautiful though how they clarified that they were loyal, loving and happy. I would’ve never guessed that they “grew apart” just by looking at them. Sadly it happens. I’m sure they will remain very close and I wish them and their family the best.♥

  • Chivonne

    I’m still in denial.

  • Ella

    So sad that this was confirmed! I hope that they can work it out, they are one of my favourite celeb couples and I was always rooting for them!

  • blaqfury

    I agree…blah… i hate to see it end, but i’m sure they’re doing what’s best for them and their family. Will they reunite or end permanently, i guess time will only tell. I do believe that they do respect each other and will not mud sling each other in the press.

    I will them all the best.

  • Zoe

    Oooooh noooo! I LOVED these guys together. They are both SOOO gorgeous. Very sad.

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    WTF…I am so confused!!!!

  • Brittany

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This is really sad news. They always seemed so happy.

  • michelle

    How do you re-pledge your devotion to each other, every year, have all these kids, and suddenly grow apart? Don’t celebrities understand marriage is WORK? it requires work? there are peaks and valleys and it’s not all sunshine and lust? Why don’t these people respect the vows they’ve taken??
    Relationships aren’t supposed to be easy!!!!

    • @michelle — Why do you assume that they didn’t work at trying to stay together? It’s not like they got divorced after 7 months, who knows how much of their 7 year marriage was spent on working toward staying together.

    • Ella

      @ Michelle-
      That’s not a fair statement to make. You think if two people separate they don’t understand marriage and they the simply weren’t trying hard enough? That it was simply a flighty decision they made over dinner?

      You don’t know what goes on between two people simply because you see a few pictures of them together and they renew their vows every year. Based on the yearly vow renewals and all the happy pictures we see of them it seems like they were working and fighting for their marriage and family until this point.

      That said I gasped out loud when I read about the split. Based on the pictures it really seemed like these two would make it, but again. NO ONE can assume they know or understand the ins and outs of two people’s relationship.

    • @Ella — “NO ONE can assume they know or understand the ins and outs of two people’s relationship.” So true. We can NEVER know what goes on behind closed doors in a couple’s relationship … even among our friends and family, let alone celebrities we will never know personally.

  • Shannon

    Aw I feel like Reese and Ryan an nick and Jessica broke up all over again!!

  • Johnny

    The famous “7 years” … Make it or beak it!

  • Chrissie

    Growing apart is never a good excuse for a divorce. Sorry. Are they are not willing to put in the work to grow together? And with all of those children? I think they spent all this time throwing elaborate wedding renewals and fancy halloween parties that they missed the point completely. when things are rough, you push. and marriage is not fun a lot of the time. imagine all the counseling they could have done. imagine all the growing together they could’ve done. growing apart? everyone will grow apart when you don’t put in the effort everyday – and the fact that that’s their excuse shows that they didn’t put the work in. it’s sad because these children are going to suffer a broken home (and poor leni her second) because these two would rather give up then get involved. grow apart? what a joke.

    and i’m not anti-divorce. but what a lame excuse for them to give. shame on them.

    • Ella

      @Chrissie –
      Wow. You do not know what kind of work they did or didn’t put into their marriage. It is also none of your or my business exactly why they split up. And I know you think the reason they gave was lame but do you honestly think they would give us a laundry list of personal and surely painful reasons they are separating simply to appease our curiosity?

      How do you know they weren’t in counseling? How do you know they didn’t “push.” You don’t because all you have seen are a handful of pictures and articles that don’t even begin to touch upon these two people’s REAL lives together.

      Shame on you for judging someone so harshly when you don’t have all the facts.

  • kel
