Heidi Klum to

File for Divorce

from Seal

Heidi Klum
will file for divorce from Seal ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Heidi will file divorce papers in L.A. County Superior Court as early as next week. We're told Heidi will cite "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the divorce.

The couple married May 10, 2005. They have 3 biological kids. Seal adopted Heidi's eldest girl from a prior relationship.

The couple is famous for renewing their vows every year on their anniversary ... in a lavish ceremony.

As for splitting up the goodies, there's a lot on the line. According to Forbes, in the last year alone, Klum raked in $20 million. It's unclear how much Seal made.

Heidi attended last Sunday's Golden Globes without Seal. The last photo she tweeted with him was back on December 26.

The last time TMZ filmed Seal and Heidi together, we asked her what the key to a successful marriage is. She didn't answer the question.

Not Surprised    

I am not surprised at all about that..... They tried a little bit too hard to concince everybody how happy they are, it was obvious that they were hiding something.
Who can stand a chattergoose like that for long?

This can't be true, I refuse to believe it. They were the best couple ever, especially in Halloween I love to see them in their costumes.

What did you expect? All the kids Heidi has pushed out and being split open by Seal's donkey like piston she's probably as loose as a silk curtain against the wind.

Whenever a seemingly happy celebrity couple "renew" their vows... it usually ends in divorce, especially if one or both of them are on some form of reality TV (project runway) and especially if the vow renewals are lavish and expensive. My brother and his wife want to renew their vows in Vegas so they can be married by Elvis once their babies are old enough to participate. Luckily they're not celebrities and have never been on TV... but I still told them to be careful.

That is a good hint Heidi made 20 million last year and Seal's income is unknown. Ten years is a big age difference all that combined with two separate careers and four kids in six years spells disaster.

Yet another celeb marriage in the dumpster. I guess "for better or worse" means I'll stay while its good and I'll leave when its bad. Who said marriage was ever easy??? These "irreconciliable differences" are NOT in your wedding vows although I guess they should be what with everyine using that lame excuse. Man up the both of you! You have kids and now you are doing this? Find whatever it takes deal with it TOGETHER and dont rip apart yet another family.

@racistwhiteboy and other losers: I suggest you have a DNA test stat. Many are surprised by what they find, no matter how lili white they appear. Take Dr Watson, the English scientist who discovered DNA. Had a DNA test to discover his ancestry. Was shocked to find that he had african alleles, recent ones, not from 10,000 years ago. If you are American, the odds are large that though you may look white, you may indeed have secret black , puerto rican, etc... blood. So, check yourselves fools. Your ancestry is often not what you have been told.

People like Heather Locklear who are honest about their ancestry do the world good. Your racism is pure ignorance. Get an education.

Watch some movies, open your eyes, read some books on the topic. Get an education, it will help you with your ignorance level.

What say you to the 50% divorce rate amongst "whites"? What's your ignorant excuse then?

Fools entertain.

I subscribe to the orgasm theory and it explains a lot. If you can get a girl to have an orgasm they will follow you to the end of the earth.
