Well, it turns out the rumors were true.
After seven years of marriage, Seal, 48, and Heidi Klum, 38, announced to People that they are in fact separating:
“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.”
Heidi Klum and Seal are parents to Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
Heidi Klum, who was a single mom to daughter Leni, 7, met Seal in 2003. Seal proposed to Heidi Klum in 2004 in a specially built igloo on 4,000-ft.-high glacier in Whistler, B.C. The singer popped the question with a 10-carat yellow diamond. In 2005 the couple married in Costa Careyes, Mexico.
A source recently reported to the Chicago Sun-Times that even though the couple would renew their vows every year, it wasn’t always a fairy tale picture.
“It’s one extreme or the other. They either fight like cats and dogs…or they are all over each other, constantly kissing and hugging,” said the source.
On Friday, Seal tweeted “The End,” along with a photo of a tattoo on his arm of a pair of wings, which most likely has reference to Heidi Klum’s days as a Victoria’s Secret angel.
