Heidi Klum, who is a model, actress, producer, entrepreneur and TV host, decided to go separate ways after seven years of marriage with her husband Seal, who is a singer, actor, songwriter and musician.

Sealhenry Olumide Samuel aka Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adelo Samuel born February 19, 1963 in London, England and Heidi Klum born June 1, 1973 in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, met in 2003.

Heidi said: “I met him in a hotel lobby in New York City and he came in just from the gym and I was sitting there and I was, like, wow … “

Seal proposed to Heidi on December 23, 2004 atop a 14,000-ft.-high natural glacier in the Canadian Rockies near Whistler.

Heidi said: “Seal took me by helicopter. He had an igloo built there, and they’d brought up everything: a bed with sheets inside the igloo, rose petals everywhere, candles. Very, very romantic! There was food and champagne, and then the helicopter left. It was a little scary, too, because you’re so cut off from the world. No trees, nothing –- it was hardcore. But I was ecstatic.”

Heidi and Seal finally got married on May 10, 2005 in Costa Carayes on the Pacific Gold Coast in Mexico. A nondenominational officiant performed their wedding ceremony. Heidi’s wedding dress was designed by Vera Wang and was described as an “ivory chantilly lace gown with empire waist.”  Their daughter Leni wore an identical gown. Seal wore a white suit. They had about 40+ guests at their reception Seal’s home La Quebrada cliffside estate in Costa Careyes, Mexico. Seal wrote and sang a song at the ceremony.
After marrying they kept their promise to renew their vows every year on their  anniversary with their close friends and family.

Heidi said: “It’s our time, a lovely family time. It’s about remembering this moment of love we gave to each other and reinforcing it.”

Seal said: “Each year, Heidi and I get remarried. It’s a great party, but for about an hour, we go off on our own down to a private beach. We sit there with the kids and read vows to each other as the sun sets. It’s a very special moment to us.”

So in love: The couple are known for renewing their vows in lavish ceremonies

They have three biological children children together – Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel (born in 2005), Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel (born in 2006) and Lou Sulola Samuel (born in 2009) – as well as Miss Klum’s daughter Leni (born in 2004), from a previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.
Happy family: The couple have four children, Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou

This divorce does come as a shock to Hollywood as they have always appeared to be so much in love. TMZ broke the news but the couple released a statement exclusively to People.  The statement from the couple is below:

 “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.”
According to Sunday Mirror, claims have emerged that Heidi  is divorcing  Seal because of his hard partying. The tension is believed to have started when the pair holidayed with their three children, and Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship, in Ibiza in August.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: ‘They were always the couple everybody strived to be but lately it all started to change. Seal seems to have been partying a lot more often than usual.
‘When they had their holiday in Ibiza last summer, Seal hit it hard, was out at clubs and with his friends a lot and Heidi was left with their kids trying to enjoy herself. The cracks were appearing and everybody was talking during that trip. He seemed off the rails.’
The insider added: ‘They’ve spent a lot of time apart too on work assignments and that hasn’t helped matters. ‘Then when Seal came back to the UK to do promotional work for his next album, he seemed sleepy and not with it on shows like Loose Women, when he was very late for his appearance.’

But according to  TMZ, Heidi is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper.Sources directly connected with the couple said that Heidi’s decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity.
But Seal’s inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it’s affecting their children.
TMZ were also told … their careers also played a part in Heidi’s decision. She has become a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich, and that professional evolution has created a distance between them.

Seal was in London to pre-record a performance of his new single Backstabbers for Jonathan Ross’s ITV chat show while Klum was alone as she attended the Golden Globes awards in Hollywood.

News of the split comes just weeks after the couple posed, apparently happily, for a photo on a skiing holiday in Colorado.On December 26 Miss Klum posted a picture on Twitter of the couple on the slopes in Aspen with the caption, ‘Sun and Snow and  @Seal’.

The couple own a home in Mexico and an £8.4 million mansion in Los Angeles. It is said that they are still living under the same roof, but that will change very soon.

Seal made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (January 24) and commented on his wedding ring, which he still wore on his finger.

“Yes, I am still wearing my ring. I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together. Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person. We will be connected in many ways ‘til the rest of our lives…. though our children and also through this tremendous admiration, respect and love that we have for each other,” Seal said.

“Will we wear the ring for the rest of our lives? Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have intentions of taking it off anytime soon.”

For his part,he has a new CD coming out entitled “Soul 2”.

Diagnosis:  Some say when it rains it pours, Hollywood ain’t no place for Lovers anymore…
