Heidi Klum and Seal have decided to break up after seven years of marriage.
The couple announced their split by issuing a statement on Sunday night.
"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate," they said. "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."
The pair added, "This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition."
Although the couple has only announced a separation, a source close to them told TMZ.com that Heidi actually wants to get a divorce because of Seal’s temper. Reportedly, Heidi was tired of his inability to control his anger because it was affecting their children.
"It was a long time coming," one source told TMZ. Supposedly, their careers were also a factor in the breakup as Heidi’s recent success has caused somewhat of rift.
Heidi and Seal have been married since May 2005, and the couple renewed their vows every year. The pair seemed happy enough in the last photo she tweeted of herself and Seal on December 26, 2011 (shown above).
